A Glen Burnie man was charged with carrying a concealed weapon after police allegedly caught him with a 12-inch knife outside Ollie's Bargain Outlet, in the 5100 block of Ritchie Highway in Brooklyn Park.

Boy Scout troop makes best of bad situation

As Boy Scout Troop 550, sponsored by the Linthicum Elementary School, arrived at its campsite in Gunpowder Falls State Park in Harford County last weekend, so did the rains of Tropical Storm Danielle.

Making the best of a bad situation last Friday, the scouts were careful in setting up their tents, so as not to be caught in a low-lying drainage spot.

Saturday provided fairer weather for the troop. During the day, they worked on knots, emergency first aid and various pioneering projects. They also hiked and explored the area, including parts of the Gunpowder River.

The rains returned Sunday, leaving the troop packing up wet tents and returning home soggy, but in good health.

Scouts who participated in the weekend camping trip were Joe Jennings, the Senior Patrol leader, Sean Jennings,Scot Branucci, Geof Osborn, David Starr, Eli Senter, Phil Pitts, Terry Gilleland, Raji Shah, Jason Pardoe and John Rouse.

Scoutmaster Larry Jennings, Assistant Scoutmasters Jim Dunne and John McCarty and Committeeman Joe Laspina also went.

The next scheduled camping activity is a hiking/biking weekend on the C&O Canal, Oct. 16 to Oct. 18.
