Reader Shout Out: Patch reader Lorraine Kelly doesn't like the possibility of Howard County middle schools cutting its reading programs, "I was taken back with this suggestion... Maybe keep the reading for those students who could use more experience and exposure to materials that interest them with volunteers. Hopefully the school board will not make a snap decision and will read up on the information on the benefits and disavanatages of such a drastic change."
