TOWSON -- Sister Christine Mulcahy, a former head of the Baltimore Province of the School Sisters of Notre Dame, will take over as headmistress of Notre Dame Preparatory School in July, replacing Sister Helen Marie Duffy, who is retiring.

Sister Christine, now on sabbatical, also has taught in Catholic secondary schools, including Bishop Walsh in Cumberland, and was principal of St. Mary's High School in Annapolis.

Sister Helen Marie is retiring after 18 years as headmistress of the 124-year-old girls school. She has spent 59 years -- her entire religious life -- at the school. Notre Dame Prep has 635 students in grades six through 12.

Council panel would limit budget increase to 4.49%


TOWSON -- Spending in most of next year's county budget would grow by a maximum of 4.49 percent, or $36.9 million, under the nonbinding recommendation of the County Council's Spending Affordability Committee, which voted Monday.

Excluded from that ceiling, however, is $103 million in annual expenses for such things as interest on bonds, state and federal grants and other categories not directly subject to inflation.

Last spring, County Executive C. A. Dutch Ruppersberger proposed a $1.3 billion budget that was only $16 million higher than the previous one. The executive is to propose his budget for the coming fiscal year April 15.

McKinney named to head Chamber of Commerce


TOWSON -- Robert L. McKinney, campaign manager for Maryland 2nd District Republican Rep. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr.'s successful re-election effort last year, has been named president of the Baltimore County Chamber of Commerce.

McKinney, 46, was raised in Dundalk but lives in Federal Hill. He began his new job Monday, said David S. Thaler, chairman of the chamber's board. The post was vacant for several months.

"He has tremendous political experience," Thaler said of McKinney, who also has business experience as a spokesman for food and beverage association trade groups.

Michael A. Brown, son of the late U.S. Secretary of Commerce Ronald H. Brown, will deliver an African-American History Month lecture tomorrow at Baltimore City Community College.

Brown, an attorney, is the president and chief executive officer of the Ronald H. Brown Foundation, which was founded to carry on his father's commitment to education, political development and international commerce. His father died last year in an airplane crash while leading a trade mission to Bosnia.

The lecture is scheduled for 7 p.m. at the Liberty Campus Fine Arts Theater, 2901 Liberty Heights Ave. Tickets are $3 for BCCC students and $5 for others. Information: (410) 462-8385.
