Paige Hamilton worked hard for four years at Old Mill and now hopes to be the first person in her family to attend college.
Paige Hamilton didn’t always take school seriously. But sometime during her junior year, she realized that she wanted to make a better life for herself and her family. “I was average, and didn’t try my best,” Hamilton said. “I wish I could have gone back and applied myself the whole time, because it’s not that hard.” But Hamilton has no regrets, and she will graduate from Old Mill High School next week. She hopes to attend Carroll Community College in the fall, making her the first member of her immediate family to attend college. “Oh, my gosh, my mom’s gonna cry!” she said. “She didn’t get to go to her high school graduation.

There will be a public meeting on June 11 to discuss ways to boost ridership on the bus between Piney Orchard and the MARC Station. Currently, the service gets only about 25 riders a day
A rush hour bus that shuttles commuters between Piney Orchard and the Odenton MARC Station could be eliminated due to low ridership, a county transportation planner said. The "M Route" bus, which costs $1 per ride and runs during peak MARC hours, averages fewer than 25 riders per day, which is not enough to justify its operation. County officials have scheduled a meeting for June 11 to seek feedback on ways to improve the service in order to boost ridership. "We're just frustrated," said George Cardwell, the transportation planning administrator for Anne Arundel County. "We're trying to do the right thing, but the fact of the matter is we're just not carrying enough passengers." Cardwell said the bus needs at least 40 or 50 passengers to …
