Drug rehab program considered for Stanton Center

Annapolis officials plan to poll residents of the Clay Street neighborhood to determine whether they would like a drug rehabilitation program for women in the Stanton Center.

Emily Green, director of neighborhood programs, said a nonprofit company wants to open a 28-bed program for drug-addicted mothers and their children at the center.

Several aldermen expressed concern that the program might displace the recreation activities, youth counseling and teen pregnancy prevention center housed there. But Ms. Green assured them Monday night that the program would fit in.

Johnson & Associates Inc., a Washington-based company, hopes to blend urban renewal with human renewal in renovating the historic building on West Washington Street.

Organizers say the project would not require much money from the city. Instead, a public-private partnership would use federal tax credits and grants for the renovation, then rely on other grant money for drug treatment, vocational studies and counseling.

Waterman faces $83,000 fine

Natural Resources Police charged a waterman from Edgewater with 57 counts of illegal fishing Wednesday after they discovered gill net anchored outside a South River tributary.

If convicted, James E. "Buddy" Larrimore, 37, of Widows Mite Road, could be fined more than $83,000, a spokesman with the Department of Natural Resources said yesterday.

Police found 55 dead, striped bass and six dead blackhead ducks trapped in the net near Aberdeen Creek on April 24. The net was anchored by a grappling hook and a 20-pound gym weight.

DNR spokesman John Verrico said Mr. Larrimore was charged with one count for each striped bass captured out of season and with separate counts for using prohibited equipment and fishing out of season.

A court date has been set for June 28 in Anne Arundel County District Court.

Man hospitalized after crash

An Annapolis man was in fair and stable condition yesterday after the car he was driving struck three vehicles and a building.

William Kyle Parr, 43, of the 100 block of Wardrop Road, was northbound on Riva Road in a 1986 Ford Mustang around 11:45 a.m. Wednesday when he crossed the center line and struck a 1988 Dodge station wagon.

The driver of the station wagon, Beverly Whittington Leitch, 55, of the 6700 block of Brisco Town Road in Owings Mills, was uninjured.
