As we are very much aware, the cost of sending a child to college, trade or technical school has risen sharply. But financial aid is available.

Parents considering college for their senior-high students are encouraged to begin early looking into the various ways of payingfor that education.

Ninth grade is not considered too early to begin looking -- and you'll be able to do just that at a Financial Aid Program co-sponsoredby the North County High School Guidance Department, set for 7 to 9 p.m. Feb. 6 at Old Mill High School.

Dr. Herm Davis, President of National College Services, will discuss "Financing a College Education." He will speak on what aid is available and how to apply for it.

The key to being considered for financial aid is filling out a Financial Aid Form, regardless of whether you are applying for federal, state, senatorial or college aid.

Do you remember a few weeks ago I told you that the Linthicum Seventh-Day Adventist Church was helping tosponsor a float in the Tournament of Roses Parade? "Children of the world together in peace" was the theme.

Well, the float won the Lathrop K. Leishman Trophy given to the most beautiful non-commercial entry in the parade.

Needless to say, church members were very proud of the honor.
