Health center to conduct art auction

The Glen Burnie Health Center Association will hold an art auction on Feb. 26 to raise money for furniture and equipment for its building, which is undergoing renovation.

The auction, the second for the nonprofit organization, will be at Michael's Eighth Avenue.

"Last year, we raised about $8,000. Our goal this year is $10,000," said Barbara Turner, association president. "We had over 400 people last year. We hope to have 500 people."

Previews will start at 7 p.m. with bidding starting at 8 p.m. on more than 200 works from the Heisman Fine Arts Gallery of Ardmore, Pa. Individual tickets for the auction are $5 and include refreshments.

Mrs. Turner said the health center renovations are scheduled to be done by mid-March. Meanwhile, nurses, clinicians and physicians have shifted from their A Street and Fifth Avenue facility to the county's Utilities Building on Baltimore-Annapolis Boulevard.

Woman charged in restaurant robbery

County police have charged a Glen Burnie woman in the robbery of a fast-food restaurant early Saturday. Police said a woman pulled up to the drive-through window of the Hardees in the 1600 block of Crain Highway at 3:46 a.m. and ordered a soda.

When the clerk reached out the window to take the woman's money, the woman grabbed her arm, waved a large knife in her face and demanded cash. The manager interceded and gave the robber money. The manager took down the suspect's license plate number and police stopped the woman on Route 100 near Ritchie Highway.

Diana Lyn Mitchell, 21, of the 8900 block of Park South, was taken to Eastern District to be charged.
