    This special edition of Howard Extra, produced by a team of Washington Post editors, reporters, editorial aides, photographers and artists, is a comprehensive guide to our community. We provide important information about how to get around the area, where to shop, how to contact elected officials, and where to go when you need help or you want to help.

Columbia Comes of Age
James W. Rouse's 1967 Creation Maintains a Hold on Its Believers
By Allison Klein, Page HO03
    Recently, I wrote a story about a teacher at Wilde Lake Middle School who was robbed at gunpoint in her classroom early one morning. As a crime reporter for the Post, I'm not naive. Still, somehow a holdup seemed almost incomprehensible at the middle school where I learned algebra from a very patient Mr. Longo and cried my eyes out while reading "The Yearling" by Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings.

In Mount Hebron, a Dynasty to Behold
Lacrosse Powerhouse Makes an Impression Over and Over Again
By Jon Gallo, Page HO39
    Here is what I remember about May 15, 2000: It was a sunny afternoon when I entered Centennial High School's stadium with my notebook in one pocket, a cassette recorder and pen in the other. The bleachers were beginning to fill with spectators as 3:30 grew closer. Now, almost five years later, I have a confession: I have never felt more out of place.

Fun Things to Do, With or Without Kids
Page HO43
    Much of Howard County was developed with families in mind. Parents and children can find lots to do here -- and so can empty nesters or those without kids who are children at heart.
