Anne Arundel County police are looking for two men in an overnight burglary and armed robbery at an assisted living facility in Davidsonville. Two caretakers at Kris-Leigh Assisted Living in the 3900 block of Birdsville Road told police that two men, one of them armed with a gun, kicked in the door of the facility's day room at about 3:13 a.m. Saturday. The suspects demanded the caretakers tell them where valuables were stored, according to Anne Arundel County police. The suspects then kicked in an office door searching for valuables, then fled with some personal property that belonged to the caretakers, police said.

Mary Kane, the Republican candidate for lieutenant governor, arrived at the 99-bed Brighton Gardens assisted-living facility off Snowden River Parkway at Minstrel Way on Sunday to find a smiling Gov. Martin O'Malley, U.S. Sen. Barbara Mikulski and Howard County Executive Ken Ulman, all Democrats, depicted standing with more than 30 staff members on a large photo poster in the lobby.

While many garden clubs work to shed the dusty image of white-gloved flower-arrangers for a more modern one of community service, the members of the Glen Arm Garden Club are busy helping others, well, arrange flowers. On this morning in December, members of the club are making their regular visit to Morningside House assisted living in Parkville, where they help a dozen or so residents create flower arrangements for the dining room and another one each can take to her own room. "It is nice for them to come," said Arsala Ewing, in her holiday-inspired teddy bear sweat shirt.

The 88-year-old mother of Vicki King and Dee Dee Barnhill died in October, and the assisted living center where she resided wants to charge her surviving relatives $929.17 because they didn't give 30 days' notice that their mother no longer would need her little apartment. Basically, the way they see it, they're being billed for not knowing the exact date their mother would die. I'll give you a few seconds to reread those sentences. (Pause.) I had the same reaction: Does this really happen in the world of assisted living?

They were two elderly gentlemen living out their days at Harmony Hall, an assisted-living facility in Columbia. James W. Brown and Earl Lafayette Wilder didn't know each other, according to an official at the facility, and might not have had any contact until Aug. 14. Now, Brown, 91, is dead and Wilder, 87, has been charged with killing him that afternoon in an incident outside the home where both men lived. It was Howard County's first homicide of the year. Joseph LaVerghetta, the general counsel for Harmony Hall's owner, said that the details of what triggered the incident remain unclear.
