CATONSVILLE -- Trustees of the Community College of Baltimore County have appointed Henry F. Linck as vice chancellor for learning and student development and Linda C. Jolly as vice chancellor for institutional advancement. Both last worked at Howard Community College in different capacities.

Linck will lead the campuses at Essex, Dundalk and Catonsville toward the learning-centered concept. Jolly will provide oversight for fund raising and alumni relations, marketing, public relations and communications.

Francis X. Kelly, board chairman, commended the two for "excellent experience and positive attitudes." The vice chancellors will each earn about $99,000 annually.

Boozer said he doesn't plan write-in campaign effort


TOWSON -- State Sen. F. Vernon Boozer, a Towson Republican who lost his bid for renomination to Dr. Andrew Harris in the September primary, said he "probably will not" mount a write-in campaign in the general election, after all.

He had considered such a campaign because he felt targeted by conservatives in the primary. "It bothers me to see the leadership of this district swing to the extreme right," he said, referring to conservative support for Harris, an abortion opponent who attacked Boozer as being too liberal.

But Boozer, a 25-year legislator who was Senate minority leader, said, "I'm going to practice law and enjoy my family."
