Older drivers can have skills assessed

Volunteers at the Maryland Association of Highway Safety Leaders are offering drivers ages 60 and older a driving health inventory. The free assessments are meant to help older drivers recognize the loss of key driving skills.

This assessment is available through the Pascal Senior Center, 125 Dorsey Road, Glen Burnie. Appointments are private and confidential.

Information: 410-222-6680.

Call to schedule help with taxes

Anne Arundel County senior centers are taking appointments from residents who wish to meet with an income tax assistant. State and federal income tax returns will be electronically filed directly from the center.

This service is free but is limited to simple personal tax returns.
