State pays county for Tick Neck Park

The playing fields, bike path and other improvements at Tick Neck Park finally have been approved by the state Board of Public Works, releasing nearly $600,000 in reimbursements to the county.

The 24-acre park on Fort Smallwood Road, adjacent to Northeast High School, opened a year ago and cost the county $1,475,000.

County officials had applied for the money through the state's Program Open Space. But approval was delayed by the state's fiscal crisis.

The Board of Public Works, which includes Gov. William Donald Schaefer, approved the park money and other Program Open Space projects last week.

Riviera Beach station robbed by gunman

A man carrying a large handgun robbed a Riviera Beach gas station Saturday night, getting away with an undisclosed amount of money.

The clerk told police that the man walked into the Amoco station in the 8500 block of Fort Smallwood Road shortly after 9 p.m., put a gun on the counter and demanded money.

The clerk said he stepped away from the register, opened the drawer and handed over some bills.
