Lothian man says he was shot

A Lothian man reported being shot early yesterday morning when he went outside to get his newspaper, Anne Arundel County police said.

Ronnie Cornelius Hall, 41, of the 1100 block of Mount Zion-Marlboro Road, told police that he was wounded by an unknown assailant around 2:50 a.m., and that he saw a man running from the scene, but officers did not find anyone.

Hall was transported to Prince George's Hospital Center with injuries to his leg and abdomen. Detectives, who noted several inconsistencies in Hall's account, are still investigating.

Overstreet signs to be unveiled today

Anne Arundel County and state officials will unveil today new trail signs for the John Overstreet Connector, a 1.5-mile segment that links the Baltimore & Annapolis and BWI bicycle trails.

The segment is named after Overstreet, a Glen Burnie retiree who has dedicated thousands of hours to teaching people about bicycle safety.

Overstreet has been "Mr. Bike Safety for close to 30 years in Maryland," said David Dionne, park superintendent for Anne Arundel County trails. "We just thought it was so appropriate to name that little connector trail [in honor of] John Overstreet."

The connector begins at the end of the B&A Trail at Dorsey Road, passes through Saw Mill Creek Park and ends at the BWI Trail at Newport Road.

Developer ordered to pay rest of fine

An area developer who was convicted of wetlands violations in the Annapolis area violated his probation and was ordered to pay the balance of his $10,000 fine, the Maryland attorney general's office said this week.

Anne Arundel County Circuit Court Judge Paul A. Hackner ordered Richard E. Benson, of Aylesbury Road in Timonium, to pay the previously suspended portion of the fine - $2,500 - after finding that the developer hadn't completed the ordered 100 hours of community service, the attorney general's office said in a news release.

Benson was convicted in June of last year of unauthorized activity in a wetland without a permit arising from the grading and filling in of tidal wetlands in the Oyster Harbor neighborhood, the news release said.

Annapolis teen shot Wednesday
