As the Board of Education gave its blessing last week to Superintendent George Arlotto's $163.4 million capital budget request, officials said some projects in the budget may affect coming redistricting efforts in the Annapolis area. Two elementary schools in the Annapolis school cluster, Rolling Knolls and West Annapolis, are among facilities targeted for upgrades as part of the capital budget plan. West Annapolis Elementary is the subject of a $24 million modernization that will increase enrollment capacity from 274 students to 314. Construction is underway, and the renovated school is expected to open in August 2106.

It's a sad day in the Annapolis area, where longtime Capital columnist and sports editor Joe Gross died early Wednesday. He was 72. Joe was one of the first people I met when I got to Baltimore in 1990. Back then, he was the Annapolis Capital, writing daily columns about sports and local news and just about anything that might be of interest to Annapolitans. Everybody knew him and I'm guessing that everybody liked him, since I never met anyone who didn't. He took his Annapolis sports very seriously, covering Navy athletics for 30 years and attending 50 Army-Navy games as either a sportswriter or a fan. He also covered the Orioles, Colts, Redskins and Ravens and was a regular presence around the Baltimore sports scene.

When the report of a shooting came in over the radio last September at the Navy Yard in Washington, Master at Arms Charles Pitt initially assumed it was a drill. "These things don't really happen here," said the Annapolis-area resident. Pitt got into a vehicle with his 5-year-old black German shepherd, Olli, and headed to the site of the call, discovering it was all too real. Gunman Aaron Alexis, a computer technician for a private Navy contractor, was on a shooting rampage that left 13 people dead, including himself, and injured three others.

Baltimore Gas and Electric Co. workers continued to investigate what caused high-voltage lines to go down outside the city of Annapolis, putting on a light show Thursday night before plunging more than 55,000 customers into darkness. Electricity was restored by 1 a.m. Friday, though work will continue over the weekend, BGE spokeswoman Rachael Lighty said. The transmission lines disconnected about 9 p.m. Thursday from a tower near Bestgate Road and Generals Highway, an area near the Annapolis Mall.

Water sloshed out of the Annapolis Harbor before dawn Tuesday, flooding the immediate City Dock area with a foot of water by 6 a.m. But city officials estimated that high tide could crest at 4.8 feet and stay high past 4 p.m. By 4 a.m., crews reported flooding there had begun. City officials were warning people to stay away from the City Dock, as well as other waterfront areas that could be submerged because of the wind-whipped high tide. "City crews are watching the high tide closely," said city spokeswoman Rhonda Wardlaw.

Aaron Craft is a senior guard for Ohio State, considered one of top perimeter defenders in college basketball. Conner Lipinski, meanwhile, is a sophomore guard from Gambrills who played just two minutes in the first eight games this season as a preferred walk-on for Maryland. The two appear to have little in common — no one would mistake their play if they faced off in a game. But Lipinski, a former standout at Annapolis Area Christian School, was trying his best Craft imitation recently during practices at Comcast Center in College Park.

Demetrius Johnson's dual skill set showed last week when he caught a 35-yard touchdown pass and also returned an interception 78 yards for a touchdown in Annapolis Area Christian's 42-8 win over Friends. The senior is rated a 4-star wide receiver by Rivals.com, which also ranks him the No. 3 overall senior recruit in Maryland and the No. 24 senior recruit in the nation at wide receiver. But Johnson, at 6 feet 2 and 210 pounds, is projected by most to play safety in college and is fielding offers from Maryland, Syracuse, Hawaii, North Carolina State, Marshall and Old Dominion.

What started for Robert McCollum as a two-year leave of absence from a teaching job in Chicago has expanded into a five-year stint guiding 300 students in a Christian school in Bogota, Colombia. That enrollment was about a tenth of what McCollum was accustomed to in Chicago, but that wasn't the biggest difference. McCollum, 44, said the work "really helped me to frame my own thinking about what Christian education should look like. " After serving as secondary principal and director of academics at El Camino Academy in Bogota, McCollum has returned to the U.S. to serve as the upper school principal for Annapolis Area Christian School.
