Alois Langer remembers building a pretend rocket ship out of a cardboard box with his dad. And how his scientist father used to bring home old gadgets from work and let his son take them apart to figure out how they functioned. Those experiences helped whet the 63-year-old Langer's appetite for pursuing a career in science and for inventing contraptions. While the mechanical eraser he created when he was a kid was a flop, he later gained fame by producing the first implantable cardiac defibrillator.

The group of teenage girls was greeted with loud applause from the pupils at Windsor Farm Elementary School in Annapolis, who had gathered for a cultural exchange program with the students from a Beijing high school. But some Windsor Farm pupils were a little puzzled when the Chinese teens - wearing sneakers, jeans, T-shirts or zip-up hoodies - started their dance performance to the hip-hop beats of an American song. "All my friends were like, whoa," said Julia Rey, a Windsor Farm fourth-grader.

WHEN A SHOPPER goes to the grocery store with money in her pocket, she's usually planning a cartload of purchases. But last week, several members of the Severna Park Kiwanis Club went to the Safeway on Benfield Road with just the opposite intention: Despite a pocketful of money -- a check for $500 -- they left the store empty-handed. The check was made out to Easter Seals. Kiwanis members, never ones to miss an opportunity to extend a helping hand, were at the grocery store to thank its manager, Randy Easterling, for helping make October's annual apple and cider sale a large success.

The Anne Arundel County school board approved yesterday a teachers' contract that provides the biggest pay increases to new and veteran educators, while also giving an across-the-board 1 percent raise to all teachers. The two-year contract, which takes effect July 1, pays first-year teachers an annual salary of $33,347, up from $32,167 this year. The increase doesn't put Anne Arundel in the same league with its wealthier neighbors, but officials say it will keep the county competitive.
