Council asks former pilots to help monitor airport noise

The Greater Severna Park Council invites former pilots to spend a day in the Baltimore-Washington International Airport control tower to observe flights and check that everything possible is being done to reduce noise.

Rick Zablocki, chairman of the council's BWI Airport committee, told the group last week that airport and FAA officials say they are varying flight patterns during off-peak hours to alleviate noise over the Severna Park area, but cannot vary the patterns during peak hours because of safety concerns.

"They have been nice, informative, but not corrective," Mr. Zablocki said. "We need more than a warm and fuzzy feeling that they are doing everything they can. We're going to take whatever paths we can."

He said the airport may be doing everything it can to alleviate the noise, but said it would help if former pilots assisted his committee in monitoring the situation.

2 Severna Park men face cocaine charges

Two Severna Park men were charged with distributing cocaine after undercover narcotics officers allegedly bought drugs from them last week.

Police said detectives Gerald Tucker and Arthur Foote were patrolling the Denis Road area of Severna Park, responding to complaints of drug trafficking in the area.

The officers said they were approached about 10:30 p.m. Wednesday by two men offering to sell them crack cocaine. After the officers followed them to Hoyle Lane, the men went to a nearby home and returned with a rock of crack cocaine, police said.

After the alleged transaction, the men drove away and were stopped by uniformed officers who made the arrest.

Arthur U. Williams, 37, of the first block of Whites Road, and Tyrone Wilburn, 33, of the 100 block of Simmons Lane, were charged with distribution of cocaine.

Police also seized the men's 1979 Chevrolet pickup truck.
