2 From the time volunteers founded the Arbutus Library 61 years ago, it has grown and served its neighborhood. From the basement of a hardware store, the floor above a supermarket and the entrance to a business park, the library has participated in the life of its southwestern Baltimore County community. Today, the county breaks ground on a $4.3 million, 25,000-square-foot branch that will still have local ties at its core. "Wherever it was, the library was always the heart of Arbutus," said Gail Ross, branch manager.

A New York investment firm has given a $12.5 million short-term loan to the owner of an Arbutus industrial building to "stabilize the property for the longer term," according to one of the firm's managing directors. "Like many owners of Class-B and Class-C assets in the nation's middle markets, this sponsor needed a competitively priced, non-recourse bridge loan," said Geoffrey Smith, of Hudson Realty Capital Inc., in a statement Thursday. Hudson loaned the money for upkeep of a 689,000 square foot building in Arbutus on a 34-acre industrial site that currently houses a "prominent manufacturing company, mechanical contractor, logistics company and wholesaler of natural stone products," the statement said.

Ask Joseph W. Smith how long he's been waiting for Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. to announce his run for governor, and he answers in a heartbeat. "About four years," he said, laughing. He was leaning against his black Chevy Silverado that was towing a trailer with a big sign -"BRING EHRLICH BACK" - and next to that another big sign: "WHAT'S IN YOUR WALLET," with a close-up of Gov. Martin O'Malley picking a few notes out of a billfold. Smith was parked outside Leon's Triple L Restaurant and Bar on East Drive in the heart of Ehrlich Country - Arbutus - waiting for the Republican former governor's rally to begin at the American Legion post about a mile away.
