Center addition nears completion

A 4,000-square-foot addition to the Chesapeake Center, an alternative school for at-risk youth on Patapsco Avenue, is nearing completion.

The new wing will house three classrooms, offices, a kitchen for vocational training, two bathrooms, a computer lab, a multipurpose room and a reception area.

Ivan Leshinsky, executive director for the Chesapeake Foundation for Human Development, an Annapolis nonprofit group, said the center plans to get certification for educational programs and increase enrollment to 60 youths.

Construction costs are being covered by a $150,000 state grant, matched by private contributions and a $25,000 grant from Baltimore.

The center, on the site of the former Crisp Memorial Presbyterian Church since 1978, serves students who have had truancy or other problems at other schools.

Injured worker released from hospital

A man injured in an industrial accident Thursday night at a company near Baltimore-Washington International Airport has been released from the hospital.

Police said Mark Allen Jewell, 26, of Crofton suffered a broken wrist and possible injuries to his pelvis when he was pinned between a truck and a loading dock about 6:45 p.m. at the J. J. Heines Co. in the 6900 block of Aviation Blvd.

Mr. Jewell, who works in the warehouse, jumped to the ground from a loading dock as a tractor-trailer was backing in, police said. Authorities said he was pinned momentarily. He was treated at North Arundel Hospital.

An investigation into the accident is being conducted by the Maryland Occupational Safety and Health agency.
