Ms. Hubers has been a member of the board of trustees that oversees the community colleges in Dundalk, Essex and Catonsville, since 1981. She was reappointed to a six-year term in 1989.
The board also elected Robert J. Kemmery Jr. as vice chairman. Mr. Kemmery, who was first appointed to the board last year, is principal of Eastern Vocational Technical High School. Bruce J. Chaillou, branch manager of the Chrysler First Financial Services Corp. in Rosedale, was appointed to a six-year term and became the board's newest member.

Frederick J. Walsh, president of Catonsville Community College, will serve as the board's secretary and treasurer this year.
Staffer is fired for apparent conflict
TOWSON -- Neil Jacobs, the new director of the Economic Development Commission, has fired a four-year staff employee because of an apparent conflict of interest.
Joseph A. DiCara of the 500 block of Dorsey Ave. in Essex had an annual salary of $40,500 and was employed to help bring businesses into the Sparrows Point Industrial Park. He started working for the county in November 1988.
Mr. Jacobs refused to discuss the case, except to confirm that Mr. DiCara's employment ended Sept. 23.
According to sources close to the commission, Mr. DiCara's name appeared on a list of possible employees for a proposed auto-recycling business in the new industrial park. William Hyman, an Eastpoint restaurant owner who is proposing the recycling business, submitted the list to Mr. Jacobs. As a county employee, Mr. DiCara helped Mr. Hyman set up the recycling operation in the industrial park, sources said. Efforts to reach Mr. Hyman and Mr. DiCara were unsuccessful yesterday.
5 artists from Grosseto to exhibit works
TOWSON -- Five artists from Grosseto, Italy, Baltimore County's first sister-county, will exhibit their works for three weeks in the Rotunda at Towson Commons, the new shopping center in the 400 block of York Road, beginning Thursday.
The five artists, Mario Bambagini, Mauro Bartolucci, Bruno Caponi, Germano Paolini and Fosco Tarsi, will accompany their works to Towson. Grosseto became a sister county in 1986.
Last year, South Glamorgan, Wales, became a sister. A Welsh delegation visited Towson last week to begin preparations for direct charter air service between Cardiff, Wales, and Baltimore-Washington International Airport.
While the link with Grosseto has been mostly a cultural exchange, Baltimore County Executive Roger B. Hayden said he hopes the connection to South Glamorgan will benefit the county economically. Tourist exchanges, such as those to and from Cardiff, Wales, are viewed as the first step.
