Gilchrest bypasses his favorite to pick up McMillen 0) sandwich

U.S. Rep. Wayne T. Gilchrest has opened his Annapolis office above Chick & Ruth's Delly on Main Street.

The Republican congressman, who represents the 1st District, stopped by the deli for lunch the other day and was told that he will soon have a sandwich in his name.

Mr. Gilchrest said his favorite sandwich is peanut butter and mayonnaise on a roll.

But he agreed to keep the huge sandwich that's now named for former Rep. Tom McMillen. He decided that not everyone would share his taste for a condiment with peanut butter.

The McMillen sandwich -- more than a half-pound of hot corned beef, pastrami and Swiss cheese on rye -- is a best-seller at Chick & Ruth's, said deli owner Chick Levitt.

Other new names on the menu will include President Clinton, who selected turkey breast on toasted whole wheat, and Baltimore Mayor Kurt L. Schmoke, who made a similar choice -- smoked turkey breast on rye.

17 diamond rings stolen from store

Two men apparently stole 17 diamond rings worth more than $23,000 from an Annapolis jewelry store Tuesday while a clerk's back was turned, county police said yesterday.

Police said the men entered Bay Jewelers in the 2400 block of Solomons Island Road about 3 p.m. and asked to see a pendant.

The clerk left the counter to get the pendant. When he returned, the men left the store without buying anything.

The clerk then noticed two trays of mens' and women's rings missing. All were 14-karat gold with diamonds.

Most were valued between $200 and $1,000, but four were worth thousands of dollars each, including one worth $5,600 and another worth $3,445.
