"The Challenge List," has been published by The Washington Post since 1998.
It's a point of pride for administrators, faculty and parents. Yet it's the cause of many late hours spent studying for students.

Residency requirements could thwart Timothy Tenne's efforts to get his name on the 2014 ballot
Timothy Tenne has lived in Baltimore County nearly all his life except for the time he spent in the Air Force. The retired Lt. Colonel and commercial airline pilot wants to be Baltimore County Executive but he may need a little help to meet the residency requirements. "There is going to have to be some kind of an opinion from the Attorney General or we're going to need a Charter change," Tenne said speaking of his eligibility. Tenne filed earlier this year and is listed on the Maryland State Board of Elections website as a provisional candidate. "He is provisional until he satisfies his residency requirement of 5 years living in Baltimore County," wrote Katie Brown, director of elections for the Baltimore County Board of Elections. The …

Perry Hall Improvement Association president Dennis Robinson sent a letter to Superintendent S. Dallas Dance requesting a third community meeting.

Westminster knocked out the Gators 3-0 in Perry Hall Wednesday afternoon.

Can you guess whose birthday was made brighter by one of Charm City Cakes's exquisite creations?
Charm City Cakes lives up to its charming reputation, at least in the eyes of a few Perry Hall High School students.

In honor of his 18th birthday, Charm City Cakes presented Perry Hall High School student Daniel Borowy with a custom two-tier cake creation, which he and a group of his friends and family enjoyed Sunday.
