Sending a strong message against alcohol use by students, the Howard County school board rejected yesterday four high school students' appeals for a reduction in their punishment for drinking wine during a school-sponsored trip to France.The ruling means that the students must sit out extracurricular activities through Nov. 1."There's a good reason for this policy, because I don't think they're getting this message [against alcohol use] anywhere else," board member Karen Campbell said. "They are learning that justice is blind and that when you break a rule there is a consequence."

John Carroll senior Nicole Clarke has had a spring to remember. She won the 3,200 meters Wednesday during the first day of the Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland championship meet and has developed into one of the area's best distance runners. She recently accepted a scholarship to Florida Tech. She may have had even more fun off the track. Clarke was part of a group of John Carroll students who recently took a three-week trip to France. She stayed with a host family and in a hotel and had so much fun on her first trip out of the United States that she left for another trip yesterday, going on a backpacking trip through England, Ireland and France.

The parents of six students who admitted drinking wine during a Wilde Lake High School-sponsored trip to France say they will appeal their children's automatic punishment to the state Board of Education.Their planned appeal follows a closed-door decision last week by Howard County School Superintendent Michael E. Hickey and the school board to affirm the students' punishment mandated under the school system's zero-tolerance drug and alcohol policy.During the executive session last Thursday, Dr. Hickey and the board also agreed to review how the school system approves foreign trips and how the trips are supervised, including the penalties for rule violations, according to a letter Dr. Hickey sent to the parents Friday.

The Howard County Board of Education has upheld its earlier punishment against four high school students caught drinking wine on a school-sponsored trip to France last spring. While we maintain that the banning of the students from extra-curricular activities seemed too harsh, we can understand why the board would have a tough time backing off its hard-line position now.As public as this case became, the board worried it would undermine its zero-tolerance policy toward alcohol if it softened the punishment, which included a five-day suspension and a ban from extra-curricular activities for two grading periods.

You're a teen-ager. You're with your friends. You're in France. Why not a little wine in the land where grape is king and where adolescents can drink legally?That's the question five Howard County high school students must ponder, after having been caught drinking during their recent class trip to France.For the infraction, school administrators have imposed five-day suspensions and a ban on participation in all future extracurricular activities for the five from Wilde Lake High School. Officials feel these students need a healthy dose of self-reflection, although they're being pressured by parents who feel the penalty is too harsh.

Learning not to say "ew, yuck!" in a restaurant takes practice, especially for a 10-year-old planning to visit two foreign countries this summer where the food can be, well, different. So the adults in charge of sending three dozen fifth- and sixth-graders to London and Paris for two weeks as People to People Student Ambassadors gave them a lesson in restaurant etiquette recently at North Carroll Middle School. The parents prepared a variety of foods their children would probably encounter in Europe: steak and kidney pie, shepherd's pie, scones, crumpets, Devon cream, curd, bubble and squeak (mashed potatoes, brussels sprouts and bacon)

Like all up-and-coming conductors making headway in the music world these days, Leslie Dunner is a fellow on the move. And that mobility seems to have made an impact on his programming here at the end of his second season with the Annapolis Symphony Orchestra. In March, we were transported to the exotic, songful, melancholic, sometimes cruel heart of Mother Russia courtesy of Borodin, Prokofieff and Tchaikovsky. This time around, the mood lightens, textures become more transparent, and the musical colors start to smudge like crazy.
