I am writing regarding the Nov. 17 article about future plans for the aquatics master plan specifically regarding why the Faulkner Ridge pool is underutilized. The Faulkner Ridge pool is located in an area with many lower-income families with children. They should be using the pool, but may not know how to apply for a discount or feel welcome at the pool. Meanwhile, the pool has overgrown trees surrounding it and blocking the sun, which causes the water to be especially cold.

U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan, who says he has seen a broad spectrum of the nation's schools, from successful to struggling, left Wilde Lake High School this week singing not only its praises but those of the Howard County school system. During a roundtable discussion at the school, Duncan posed questions to Wilde Lake students about whether the system known for its diversity works for all of its students. Columbia's Wilde Lake, where school officials say more than 90 percent of students pass high school assessments before the 12th grade, has one of the county's most diverse student populations, with no ethnic group totaling more than 41 percent of its enrollment.

A Howard County high school teacher who was placed on administrative leave a year after winning a racial discrimination lawsuit against the county has not been paid since June and has appealed that action, according to a school system spokeswoman. Michelle Maupin, 40, an English teacher at Wilde Lake High School in Columbia, has appealed the decision to place her on leave without pay, said school system spokeswoman Patti Caplan. "I cannot confirm or deny that she has been terminated," Caplan said.

Michelle Bedke attended Howard Community College's graduation Thursday with mixed emotions. The 20-year-old honors student was happy to receive her degree, and she will continue her education at the University of Maryland, College Park, where she will major in linguistics. There was also another feeling, spurred by the fact that she did not have any family in attendance to share in her accomplishment. "I'm kind of envious of other people," Bedke said Thursday of her fellow graduates.

ELISE RAY was about to take second place in the all-around at the U.S. Gymnastics Championships in St. Louis Saturday night. She was a sliver behind the defending champion, Kristen Maloney, and facing her weakest event, the vault. She was a few weeks past surgery removing bone chips from her knee. Before her second vault, the June graduate of Wilde Lake High School in Columbia went to the officials' table. They thought she was going to ask to go to the bathroom. No, she wanted to tell them she was changing to a more difficult vault, one she had never attempted in competition before.

Skateboard enthusiasts are pushing Howard County to build a place where they can showcase their skills, and county officials hope to accommodate them. Two Wilde Lake High School juniors - Evan Sokolosky and Daniel Lesko - are part of the movement to get a skateboard park built at Centennial Park. The pair worked with Gary Arthur, direction of the county Department of Recreation and Parks, on a layout that would appeal to users of the park and to those funding it. The proposed facility would replace an aging basketball court behind the park's north entrance, off Old Annapolis Road.

Kishna Davis strode onto the stage at the Jim Rouse Center for the Performing Arts in a long red gown with a deep neckline, dripping in jewelry and perched atop sparkly stiletto sandals. "You have a diva in the house," she announced, and the students at Wilde Lake High School roared. Davis, a soprano who can sing in seven languages and performs around the world, downplayed her accomplishments when she told the audience of freshmen and sophomores yesterday that opera is not so different from television reality shows.
