Officials to discuss how growth affects schools

November 22, 1995|By FROM STAFF REPORTS

Two local lawmakers will discuss the effects of growth and development on Pasadena schools at the Dec. 6 meeting of the Fort Smallwood Citizens Advisory Committee.

State Del. Joan Cadden and County Councilman Tom Redmond will take questions and offer suggestions for getting residents more involved in the planning process.

Residents are worried about the effects of three proposed developments that would add about 2,500 homes to the area. The two middle schools -- George Fox and Marley -- already are above capacity, and the major thoroughfare, Mountain Road, is clogged at rush hour.

Ms. Cadden, a District 31 Democrat, was elected to the House of Delegates in 1991. Mr. Redmond, a Democrat who represents District 3, was elected last November.

The meeting will be at 6:30 p.m. at Fort Smallwood Elementary School, Poplar Ridge Road.

Information: 222-6450.

Man robs gas station of about $50 in cash

An unarmed man robbed a Pasadena Exxon gas station Saturday of about $50 in cash, county police said.

The man walked into the convenience store of the gas station, at the intersection of Mountain and Solley roads, shortly after 5:45 a.m. and poured a large coffee, police said. He took the coffee to the counter, and when the clerk rang up the sale, the man reached in the back of his waistband and demanded money.

The clerk opened the register and stepped back as the man reached over the counter, took the money and ran out the front door, police said. He got into a full-size black Chevy or Ford pick-up truck with white lettering and damage on the tailgate, and drove down Solley Road toward Fort Smallwood Road.

The robber is described as a white man, 30 to 35 years old, about 6 feet tall with dark brown, shoulder-length hair. He was wearing a brown leather jacket, a black button-down shirt and blue jeans, and smelled like paint thinner, police said.
