Ex-principal faces hearing over driving complaint

ANNAPOLIS - Ousted Annapolis High School Principal Deborah Williams faces a civil court hearing Friday on a teacher's petition for a permanent restraining order against her former supervisor, who she alleges tried to run her off the road Thursday.

Milagros M. Cancel, a Spanish teacher who works at Annapolis and South River high schools, told police that Williams followed her onto U.S. 50 in Annapolis a day after the principal was removed from her post and reassigned to a job in the central administration.

Police have not filed charges in the incident. The case was referred to a District Court commissioner.

Historic 18th-century house is bought by county family

ANNAPOLIS - A well-known Anne Arundel County family plans to purchase Tulip Hill, the 18th-century Georgian mansion considered one of the region's most historically significant homes.

Members of the Chaney family of south county are buying the Harwood property. The seven-bedroom mansion on Muddy Creek Road, which was on the market for about a month, was listed for $4.9 million.

The 10,000-square-foot mansion, which is on 93 acres and comes with a stable and tenant home, is registered as a National Historic Landmark. Shipping merchant Samuel Galloway built the house in 1756 and was host to his friend George Washington there.

Town likely to scrap proposal on nuisance calls

UNION BRIDGE - Town officials said yesterday they will probably scrap a proposal to start fining property owners for repeat nuisance calls that tie up their police service, but are hoping to come up with another solution.

Mayor Bret D. Grossnickle said the council will likely start looking for other options in dealing with repeated calls to the same addresses for loud music, drinking and fighting.

Grossnickle's comments came the day after residents overflowed a public hearing Monday night in nearly unanimous opposition to a proposed ordinance that they characterized as harsh and possibly illegal.
