3 candidates vie for Ward 2 seat

Three candidates - each representing a different party - have entered the race for the open Annapolis city council seat, negating the need for the scheduled Nov. 27 primary election.

Democrat Debbie Rosen McKerrow, president of an estate settlement company, Republican Frederick M. Paone, a county prosecutor, and Green Party candidate Karen L. Jennings, a community activist, will vie for the Ward 2 seat, representing the neighborhoods of Admiral Heights, Wardour, West Annapolis and the public housing communities around Clay Street.

The winner of the special election Dec. 19 will complete the final two years of Michael I. Christman's term.

Christman was one of only two Republicans on the eight-member city council. He resigned last month, noting frequent travel for his job.

McKerrow narrowly lost to Christman in that race.

World War I chapel to mark 90 years

Epiphany Chapel & Church House, the only known World War I chapel in the United States, will celebrate its 90-year history this weekend with events that also will mark Armistice Day.

The community is invited to an old-fashioned tea at 11 a.m. tomorrow to visit the chapel's WWI Social History Museum and the Chaplains' Peace Garden, and to join the congregation for worship at 10:30 a.m. Sunday.

The bells will ring at 11 o'clock while music from the era will be sung. Col. Sam Smith from Fort Meade will preach, remembering the work begun at the chapel in 1918 and speaking about today's soldiers and sailors.

The chapel is at 1419 Odenton Road in Odenton. To learn more about its history, visit epiphany-md.org.

For more information or to make tea reservations, call 410-336-8383.
