Building up to 325 detached homes instead of an Erickson retirement community at historic Doughoregan Manor in Howard County is likely to be a more difficult, slower and less-profitable project for the Carroll family to pursue. The family's new plan, if approved, would divide the remaining 892 acres of the estate in the same way, with development clustered in the northeast corner near Frederick Road and Kiwanis-Wallas Park. The family continues to plan for permanent preservation of the nearly 300-year-old manor house and most of the land, while donating 34 acres to the county for park expansion.

FRIDAY WAS the last day of school before the winter vacation. Children looked forward to presents, holiday trips and two weeks of fun. At Crofton Woods Elementary School, many children wore Santa hats and reindeer antlers. Red was a popular color for sweaters and dresses. Teachers' desks were piled with presents. First-grade teacher Tracy Gload struggled to put a large houseplant into her van. The plant was a gift from her secret Santa, one of the other teachers. She thought it would be a perfect decoration in her home, but she still needed room in the van for other presents, paperwork and her two children.

On Sept. 7, it was a typical day in Joan Lee-Powell's kindergarten class at Bryant Woods Elementary. Pupils sat around low tables in child-size chairs, drawing three things they liked to smell after using that sense to identify mystery items in a bag. Cole Batzler, 5, drew an orange, a grape-and-cherry pie, and a lollipop, proudly showing his work to his teacher. He started to run from the room but stopped short when she reminded him, "What kind of feet - walking feet," prompting Cole to put his hands to his side and stroll out to play in the September sun. Lee-Powell has witnessed the exuberance, innocence and trusting nature of kindergartners at the Columbia school since it opened in 1968.

Bryant Woods fifth-grader Ariel Hill would like to be president some day, and Marty Cifrese, a judge at the school's simulated congressional hearing, thinks she has a chance. "Ariel, I definitely see you in politics," said Cifrese, Bridges program manager for the county school system, and one of nine judges at Thursday's event. During the hearings, Ariel answered question after question about the Constitution and the way American government is organized.
