Cafe owners permitted to erect park sign

The county's Office of Urban Renewal will advise the new owners of Phinean's Courtyard Cafe that they may raise a temporary sign in the urban park -- but not the sign they chose.

Gary and Alberta Hall of Pasadena applied last month for permission to erect a temporary sign in the urban park on the corner of Crain Highway and Baltimore-Annapolis Boulevard announcing the ownership change.

Businesses and non-profit groups may put up free temporary signs in the park bearing messages for the community, but the signs must meet the urban renewal rules. Once approved, they appear on a first-come, first-up schedule.

Office of Urban Renewal Director Victor Sulin said the sign proposed by the Halls did not meet the strict guidelines for Glen Burnie. A sign must include mention of the urban renewal district, which many include by starting their message with "Urban Renewal welcomes," Mr. Sulin said.

Phinean's is on Baltimore-Annapolis Boulevard, across from the Arundel Center North.

Man armed with knife robs teen at mall

A Glen Burnie man reported to police that he was robbed Monday in the parking lot of Glen Burnie Mall.

Investigators said the 18-year-old victim was walking in the parking lot at 11:31 a.m. when a man asked him for a quarter. When the victim reached into his pocket and pulled out his money, the robber took out a knife and demanded the cash.

The robber grabbed the money and ran toward Holsum Way.

Police described the robber as a white man in his mid-30s, 6 feet tall, with brown shoulder-length hair.
