Crews to make trash priority; pickups of recyclables on hold

TOWSON -- Collection of residential recyclables -- mixed paper, bottles and cans -- has been canceled through Saturday because of this week's storm.

The county Department of Public Works will make trash collection the top priority. Residents whose trash was to have been collected Tuesday or yesterday should leave it at the regular collection area. Crews will pick up the trash as soon as possible.

Residents are asked to place trash containers where they will be clearly visible to public works crews, while not blocking snow clearing operations.

Notre Dame Preparatory gets $300,000 bequest

TOWSON -- Notre Dame Preparatory School has received a bequest of nearly $300,000 from the estate of Katherine Strohecker Butz, a member of the Class of 1936, to establish an endowed scholarship fund.

School officials said the bequest is the largest in the school's history. It has helped Notre Dame, an independent school for 680 girls in grades six through 12, to surpass its $6 million capital campaign goal.

Butz died last year. Throughout her life, she broke new ground. She was one of the first women to hold a management position with the port of Baltimore. In a career that spanned two decades, she rose to the highest levels of management at several shipping companies.

Grant awarded to address violence at workplace

Nationally, homicide is the second-leading cause of death in the workplace and the leading cause of death for women at work, police said.
