In Anne Arundel County and Annapolis, officials warned Monday of unplowed residential streets and roads that are passable but narrow and rutted with packed snow and ice. Annapolis Mayor Joshua J. Cohen has postponed Monday night's City Council meeting due to snow. With many residential streets not passable, free parking in the Annapolis city garages was continued until further notice.

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.

I smiled when I read Maureen Harper's letter to the editor ("Arrogance in Annapolis," Readers respond, Feb. 16) in which she wrote about appearing before the Maryland General Assembly's Ways and Means Committee. Ms. Harper reports that the members of the committee were rude and arrogant when she and fellow citizens testified on bills related to jobs, tax credits and property tax assessments. She said the committee was inattentive and rushed their testimony. My group, Property Taxpayers United, experienced the same treatment more than 10 years ago when we appeared before the Ways and Means Committee.

Regarding the recent editorial on the legislature's choice not to hold further hearings on the state's health care exchange ("Brown gets a reprieve," Feb. 4), it's about time The Sun started shining some light on the corruption that's so deeply entrenched in this state. But it still won't make a difference. Marylanders will still vote for Democrats no matter how much they get screwed and those in Annapolis know this fact.

Just before what could be the year's worst storm, a piece of snow-removal equipment has been stolen in Annapolis. Police said a park maintenance worker told them the mechanism used to lift and maneuver a snowplow blade was missing Tuesday morning when he arrived for work at the maintenance yard in the 200 block of Truxton Park Road. The attachment bolts were on the ground by the vehicle. "The timing on this is bad," said Art Thomas, maintenance administrator for the city's Recreation and Parks Department.
