Our high school students have been preparing for a speech meet next week. Because I'm their English teacher, I've had the privilege of listening to more than 60 of them give presentations in class. It's amazing how much you learn when you have to critique others. As I've been writing notes - most of which are positive, by the way - I've considered how I come across to my classes. For example, when I write, "Don't keep shifting back and forth from foot to foot," I remember times when I've done that in class.

My 10th-grade English teacher would write our spelling words on the board. She did this each week so we could practice writing them in our spelling notebooks. She was usually very accurate, and I learned so much from her. One day, though, she was about halfway down the list when she wrote "rhythym. " I squirmed in my seat and looked around. Did anyone else notice the spelling error? They were too busy writing. She kept going with the other words and didn't catch what she had done.

What significance does April 23 have? It's the day traditionally celebrated as William Shakespeare's birthday. Although his is a household name, little else is known about William Shakespeare. He was born in 1564 in Stratford-upon-Avon, England, and is said to have died on his 52nd birthday. Thirty-seven of his plays survive, a significant portion of those that are known from the Elizabethan and Jacobean periods, as well as 154 sonnets and several epic poems. Shakespeare's career as a writer reverberates in our culture even today.

Thumbs up to Robert Petties, a retired police officer, for volunteering six to seven hours each day to keep the programs at Hagers-town's Memorial Recreation Center up and running. The center, at 109 W. North St., has been without full-time leadership since former director Kim Buchanan left to take another job in September. Petties, who joined the center's board this spring, said it was "a chance to try to make a difference. " Thank you, sir. Thumbs down to Michael Mukasey, a nominee for U.S. attorney general, for his refusal to disavow "waterboarding" and other harsh interrogation techniques.

HAGERSTOWN - It was a request that Mary Fortson was unsure about. Even after she committed to being photographed in costume as Calpurnia, the housekeeper of attorney Atticus Finch and his children in "To Kill a Mockingbird," Fortson had second thoughts about her involvement. The photo shoot project was a partnership between students in Digital Communication and Cosmetology at Washington County Technical High School for The Big Read, a national reading initiative sponsored locally by the Community Foundation of Washington County.
