The Anne Arundel County Council killed a bill Monday night that would have set up a special fund for construction projects - including the possibility of funding another public high school. By a 3-4 vote, the council defeated a bill from Councilman Jamie Benoit, who offered the measure as a way to raise money for a 13th public high school in the Crofton area - a proposal that so far has gone unfunded by the county and state, despite pleas from parents in the western part of the county.

Anne Arundel County Councilman Jamie Benoit this week proposed a way to drum up money to build a new high school in the county - a school that has been supported by parents in the Crofton area. Benoit wants to tap an obscure provision in the county's charter to create a dedicated fund to hold money for building a high school and repairing aging schools. He said the plan calls for diverting a portion of income tax the county receives into the fund. He said if he's successful in passing a bill to create the fund and funnel the money, he would follow up with a tax increase during budget negotiations in May to compensate the county's general fund for the money diverted to schools.

This might be hard for non-wrestling fans to understand, but to those who loved Chris Benoit's work, his grisly double-killing and suicide was as shocking as if Peyton Manning or Tim Duncan or Derek Jeter had committed the same acts. He was that good at what he did and that respected by fans and peers for doing everything the right way. As such, accounts of the way he strangled his wife, smothered his child and hanged himself are as disturbing as any I've encountered. They raise countless questions about drugs, the vagaries of the mind and our propensity for glorifying risk.

When wrestler Chris Benoit murdered his wife and son and hanged himself last summer, some wondered if his former employer, World Wrestling Entertainment, would face congressional scrutiny or even financial peril. Dozens of Benoit's peers, including several WWE headliners, had already died young, with many of their passings linked to steroid abuse, painkiller addiction and other stresses associated with grueling travel and performance schedules. But the grisly Benoit episode, with its ties to steroids, concussions and other hot-button issues, dragged the WWE into mainstream headlines like never before.

There's no news that could ever be good news when it comes to the Chris Benoit double murder-suicide. But for those looking for answers as to how someone who was so well-liked and respected by his peers could commit such unspeakable crimes, yesterday's developments might shed some light. Doctors who examined Benoit's brain suggested that repeated concussions could have contributed to the killings. One of the doctors stressed that there is no way to know for sure if the concussions played a role, but the level of brain damage Benoit sustained can cause depression and irrational behavior, he said.

Questionnaires filled out by Republicans Laura Neuman and Steve Schuh when they were vying for Anne Arundel County executive a year ago have been released by a member of the County Council. Councilman Jamie Benoit, a Democrat, released the questionnaires, which cover a host of topics, from personal backgrounds to positions on county finances, business development and thoughts on working with the school system. Neuman and Schuh were among more than a dozen people who applied to become county executive last February after John R. Leopold resigned in the wake of his convictions of misconduct in office.

Less than a week after proposing sweeping change to address what she called an "unsustainable" retiree health care system for county employees, Anne Arundel County Executive Laura Neuman has withdrawn her plan. As soon as Neuman's bill was introduced at Monday's County Council meeting in Annapolis, it was withdrawn at her request to make way for a proposal by County Councilman Jamie Benoit, who like Neuman is calling for longer terms of service before employees are eligible for health care in retirement, and also changes in county contributions for such plans.

Anne Arundel County Councilman Jamie Benoit is challenging a legal opinion issued by the county attorney on the political future of fellow Councilman Daryl D. Jones, who has been sentenced to federal prison beginning next month. In a five-page letter to the county's Office of Law, Benoit, a Democrat, questioned a Dec. 1 memo from County Attorney Jonathan A. Hodgson. Hodgson had stated that the council can replace Jones when he begins serving his prison term Jan. 23 because he will be living outside his district during his prison stint.

The race for the 4th District seat held by U.S. Rep. Donna F. Edwards has grown increasingly crowded in recent days, as two possible Democratic candidates have said they are considering challenging the Prince George's Democrat in the primary. A spokesman for former Prince George's County State's Attorney Glenn Ivey said he is eyeing a run, and last week, Anne Arundel County Council member Jamie Benoit, whose district includes Laurel, announced he had formed an exploratory committee for a possible run in District 4. In Gov. Martin O'Malley's redistricting plans approved by the Maryland General Assembly this month, District 4 was reconfigured, moving nearly all of Laurel out of Rep. Steny Hoyer's District 5 and into District 4. Large swaths of Anne Arundel County were also added to District 4, which also includes parts of Prince George's County outside Laurel.

Current zoning law allows electronic message boards "as long as they are on a cycle of no less than five seconds." Councilman Jamie Benoit said he believes the billboards are illegal; he hopes to clarify a law already on the books. The county has seven or eight of these signs, according to the Annapolis and Anne Arundel County Chamber of Commerce. Of that, only a couple appear to have moving video or text that would conflict with Benoit's bill, said Bob Burdon, the chamber's president and chief executive officer.

In an unusually animated meeting, an Anne Arundel County councilman exhorted the county executive to appear before the council to answer questions about an anonymous call to police that possible sexual activity was taking place in the county executive's government vehicle while it was parked at a shopping mall. The request came after council members grilled the police chief, Col. James Teare Sr., about how the department responded to the call, which led an officer to County Executive John R. Leopold's black Chevrolet at an Annapolis shopping mall in January.
