When Royals Wore Ruffles by Chesley McLaren and Pamela Jaber Schwartz & Wade / 40 pages / $16.99 / ages 5-9 When Royals Wore Ruffles offers a historical look at the vagaries, extremes and pure fun of fashion. It comes in the form of an ABC book. The letter I, for example, stands for "Illegal Intruder." This page tells of "The Wig Snatchers," who, attracted by the jewels set in elaborate wig coifs, "would sneak up behind a lady's coach, cut a hole in the back, snatch the wig - and off they'd run!"

When engineer Arthur Neal Willoughby talks about ensuring that Howard County's students have successful futures, he means it in the broadest possible sense. The Jessup resident sees a direct link between well-prepared graduates and, say, the gross national product."When I go and retire, it'll make my particular quality of life that much better," the 40-year-old said. "If they're working, the county is productive. The gross national product is going to increase."Willoughby -- who ran unsuccessfully for a school board seat in 1996 -- often takes a broad view of issues.

Bo Briguglio and Gianni Thompson stood over a pot of steaming water with anticipation as tiny bubbles started jetting to the top. As the water reached a rolling boil, Gianni poured in a package of uncooked pasta. Bo dumped a stick of margarine into a skillet and started working on the cheese sauce for the finished product: baked macaroni and cheese. Although the two Dunloggin Middle School sixth-grade boys were in the midst of their family consumer science class, they also were learning an important lesson in giving.

Velmar Coleman played in a high school basketball game three days after Christmas on the day his 63-year-old grandmother, Marlene Willoughby, died of cancer. The Walbrook senior did the same thing eight days later, missing the funeral of the woman who raised him since he was 3. But to understand Coleman's motives, one must know about his relationship with Willoughby. From the day Coleman picked up a basketball and began playing at the Bentalou Recreation Center at age 11, Willoughby recognized her grandson's gifts on the court.

"Who is Arthur Neal Willoughby?" That's the question written at the top of the Howard County school board hopeful's literature and one voters asked themselves during yesterday's primary when they knocked the seldom-seen Willoughby out of the nonpartisan race, leaving two board candidates standing: Courtney Watson and Barry Tevelow. Those two will go on to vie for the single available board seat, being vacated by Board of Education Chairwoman Jane B. Schuchart, in the general election Nov. 5. In a race where visibility largely determined outcome, Watson - who has been knocking on doors since she announced her candidacy April 2 - is the clear favorite after getting nearly two-thirds of the votes.
