President Birge's comment that voters will not be able to "exercise their right" to voteRead More in a retention election until November 2016 is beyond disingenuous. If members of the County School Board were elected outright, as in 20 other Maryland jurisdictions, we would be exercising our right to vote THIS November. This County desperately needs an elected School Board, especially given the nonsense being spouted by the current unelected and unaccountable Board members.

Josh says he has difficulty recalling the incident??? I hope he does a better job of recalling hisRead More schoolwork.

This is absolutely ridiculous. The loonies and thought police are truly running the asylum. OneRead More would think that school officials who are supposed to be "educated" people would have more common sense. Don't these people have anything better to do (like educate students) then to get their panties into a wad and escalate every inane and benign act into a major issue? Every school official involved in doing so should be discharged.

Silly me, it looks like one pop tart partially laying on top of another pop tart. I don't see aRead More trigger guard, trigger, site, and I'd bet is smells slightly of sugar rather than oil.

Emotional support can be as important as medical, and even financial support for all kinds ofRead More conditions. Traditional sources of treatment often largely ignore the mind-body connection during and after treatment to the detriment of the best outcomes.

One Maryland high school football coach says education at the grassroots level through programs such as Heads Up Football is an effective method for cutting down on head injuries. File|Patch

Worried this will hurt the game? That's become an interesting phrase. But exactly what does itRead More mean? Lower attendance? Less enjoyable for fans? Does any of that trump the safety of the players? Sometimes I can't comprehend the level of egotism and selfishness. It's particularly worrisome in people who work with kids. I love football, but I put the players' welfare before my pleasure.

Let's face it: Football is a violent game. I can't imagine anyone letting their child play such anRead More injury-prone "sport". Sadly, from the trash movies and video games that our kids are weaned on, violence seems to be part of our culture. Too bad.
A new Maryland survey says Anne Arundel County's youth are more likely to have been the victims of bullying, forced to have sex, and considered committing suicide than the state's students overall. File|Patch

The bullying was so bad, the school's response so lacking, this is exactly why we moved out ofRead More county.
Richard Rice June 13, 2014 at 11:08 am
There is probably bullying in Montgomery County also. Going to Special Ed years agoRead More there was some physical bullying as well as emotional!!

Only a grate fool wood let they kids eat food from school. make they lunchers youselves. it aintRead More rockem science.

When did a school lunch become such a primary event in a students' life? A home-served dinner shouldRead More be the primary meal event where the kiddies share daily events and nosh on the freshly prepared healthy foods selected by the nurturing adult in the home. School lunches should provide the kiddies with quick energy and inexpensive staples like mac 'n cheese, fries, chocolate milk, and ice cream. Volunteer in an Arlington public school cafeteria and see for yourself the food that is trashed daily that could probably alleviate the starving masses in India and Nigeria for a day! Kids also feel stigmatized by signing in with a school ID that designates free lunch recipients whereas the other kids produce the cash. School-provided breakfasts also rely on bagels and buns - all prone to add to obesity. Parents who don't take the time to provide breakfast to a kid are worthless.

I am 65 yrs old and remember eating in the school cafeteria for many years. The food was so so butRead More it was also a break from the old standby of PB&J or bologna sandwiches that was standard lunch fare in our household. My folks mixed it up but we also paid per day for every lunch we ate at school.. There is no right or wrong way to do this.. Make lunches at school cheaper or better tasting... My grand kids simply don't eat if the cafeteria serves crappy tasting food or if they don't like what I make for them at home.. Ergo, they don't eat anything from 7:30 in the morning when they have breakfast until at least 3:30 in the afternoon when they come home starving... I'm pretty sure most kids are like that since mom and dad are not there to insure that they eat.. Kids will be kids...

The correct spelling is "zydeco," not "zyedeco." Please proofread your article.Read More For an article about the spelling bee, there's no excuse for misspellings, especially when the words used are available, among other places, on the spelling bee's web site.

Too bad it's also spelled pfeffernusse. Oh the irony!
