Carter, county election supervisor, to retire Dec. 1

Muriel G. Carter, who has been on the county Board of Election Supervisors for 21 years, retires Dec. 1.

She expects her last official act as president of the three-member board to come this week when she certifies the results of the Nov. 3 election.

Mrs. Carter, 64, said she submitted her resignation to the governor several months ago because she wanted to have better control over her time. "It's the only thing that pins me down to a particular time and place," she said.

She is president of Glen Burnie Improvement Association and is an active member of St. Alban's (Episcopal) Church.

"Election Day is a hassle, and I don't need it," Mrs. Carter said, noting that many people fail to keep up their voter registration and take out their frustrations on election workers.

Also retiring is her sister, Hazel Arrildt, an election clerk registrar.

Mrs. Carter will be replaced by John "Jack" Sullivan, and the board members will reorganize.

Would-be robber attacks resident

A Glen Burnie man reported to police that he was the victim of an attempted robbery early Sunday morning outside his home.

Detectives said the 49-year-old man was walking into his apartment building in the 100 block of Warwickshire Lane at 12:55 a.m. when a man walked up to him from behind and hit him in the back.

The bandit demanded money, but the victim said he didn't have any.

The victim warned that he was going to call police and then ran inside the apartment building.

Police searched the area but could not find the assailant, who was described as a white teen-ager about 5 feet 8 inches tall, wearing a black jacket and black hat.
