A pair of people drunkenly stole an empty Anne Arundel County school bus, crashed it twice, smashed out the windows and tried to torch it before ditching it in the woods in Davidsonville Tuesday morning, police said. The motive? Travis Edward Champagne and Nicole Jo-Ann Adams, charged in the incident, were "looking for change to purchase cigarettes," police said. During a search, the Anne Arundel County Police Department's Aviation Unit spotted the bus badly damaged under power lines near Governor's Bridge and Strawberry Run roads just before 9 a.m., police said.

How much longer is Brock Bridge Road expected to be closed between Whiskey Bottom Road and Dorsey Run Road? For about three more weeks, according to representatives with the county and the construction project. Nearby residents and businesses are getting a bit antsy because the road was supposed to be reopened by January. This section of Brock Bridge links Annapolis Junction with Laurel-Maryland City-Russett and is a popular shortcut to bypass Route 198 and get to points north on the Baltimore-Washington Parkway and Route 32. But unless you live on the road, ride on a school bus or drive a garbage truck, you are still blocked from using this portion of Brock Bridge.

It seemed like a lot of fuss over five little trees, but to Andrea Soukup they meant more than words could convey. With smiles lighting up their faces, Soukup and a small group of neighbors watched yesterday as contractors for Baltimore Gas and Electric Co. pulled the quintet of American holly trees from a pickup truck at their designated new home, a hillside along Cromwell Bridge Road in Towson, just southwest of the Beltway. Then Soukup was handed a shovel, as were state Sen. Katherine A. Klausmeier and several BGE officials, and asked to perform some ceremonial digging in the dirt.

There's always lots of activity within earshot of Maryland City Park, be it kids playing on the playground, canines chasing their friends, or, behind a thick line of trees, thousands of cars whizzing down the Baltimore-Washington Parkway. But about a month ago, park-goers could hear something else on the western outskirts of Anne Arundel County: foresters chopping to the ground a stand of leafy trees that extended more than 100 yards along a walking trail, all to clear a path for airplanes.

Craters and cracks mar a short stretch of the new Shepherds Mill Road near Union Bridge and the surface must be removed and replaced with new asphalt by the contractor, Carroll County officials said. The 1 1/4 -mile road opened to truck traffic in April, to the relief of Union Bridge officials. The $2.2 million stretch that connects to Route 75 was designed to draw heavy cement trucks from the Lehigh Cement Co. off the town's Main Street. "There are a few areas where the surface paving has failed," said Deborah A. Butler, acting chief of the bureau of engineering for the county Department of Public Works.

The tanker truck explosion that closed Interstate 95 yesterday afternoon forced thousands of commuters and long-distance travelers onto clogged alternate routes, where they crept through hourlong backups, missed afternoon flights and got lost on unfamiliar roads. Two southbound lanes of I-95 reopened at 7 p.m., and state highway workers were laboring through the night in a "marathon effort" to open the northbound side by this morning, officials said. After waiting for emergency workers and police investigators to finish their jobs, road crews had to clear fire-retardant foam before they could survey the damage to the highway.
