MIDDLE RIVER -- The County Council has temporarily refused to renew what members felt was a costly lease for the Young Parent Support Center in the 200 block of Back River Neck Road.

The $12.34-per-square-foot lease for two storefronts in a small strip shopping center was removed from last night's council agenda to allow reconsideration of the two-year deal, which would cost $108,439.

The center helps young, poor parents learn parental and employment skills and helps welfare recipients prepare for work. The lease expires Oct. 31, and the deal is expected to be voted on Oct. 20.

School's sites considered for preservation list


BROOKLANDVILLE -- The Baltimore County Landmarks Preservation Committee is again considering putting structures and sites on the St. Timothy's School campus on its protected list.

Last winter, the school's neighbors in Green Spring Valley had several buildings on the girls' school campus listed as historically significant after the school proposed selling 90 acres of its campus for a residential development. The landmarks commission declined to consider other sites.

Landmarks committee members will visit the latest sites, and consider their status at a meeting at 7 p.m. Thursday at the Baltimore County Courthouse.

The Nationaln Baltimore has added to its outdoor seal exhibit a 485-pound harp seal rescued in April from Assateague Island Beach.

The partly blind seal probably would not survive if released into the wild, aquarium officials said. He was given the name "Mack" so that he can be trained to respond to voice commands for routine medical procedures and feedings.

Mack is the only harp seal on exhibit in a North American zoo or aquarium. He became the eighth seal in the exhibit when he was placed there over the weekend.
