It's difficult to estimate the true cost of a college education because the final figure amounts to more than the cost of taking classes. With tuition and mandatory fees, room and board, transportation, books and other expenses, many students find themselves facing hefty price tags. University System of Maryland schools this year are increasing tuition by 3 percent for the second consecutive year. According to Mike Lurie, media relations manager for USM, an agreement between Gov. Martin O'Malley, the Maryland General Assembly and USM froze tuition rates from 2005 through 2009.

Going, going ... So where did July go? Someone please tell me how all of a sudden it's almost August? Do you realize that youngsters head back to school in just three weeks? Congratulations Congratulations to Jeffrey Cooper of Funkstown, who graduated in May from Virginia Military Academy. Jeffrey graduated with a bachelor of science in chemistry with honors and a minor in international studies with concentration in mechanical engineering. I am quite frankly exhausted just listing what he accomplished.
