Howard County's Grassroots Crisis Intervention Center and homeless shelter is planning to move to temporary quarters - perhaps by October - as work gets under way on a new $5.5 million facility. "They will tear down the [current] building the second we're out the door," Director Andrea Ingram said, offering souvenir doorknobs to anyone who wants one. The center's crisis intervention specialists will relocate to a county-owned house on undeveloped parkland on Vollmerhausen Road, she said, but a temporary home for the center's 32 homeless beds hasn't yet been arranged, though a deal is in the works.

Gov. Martin O'Malley today released a $222 million supplemental budget that creates a "Gun Center," strives to save a baseball program and sets aside another $10 million in case federal sequestration cuts take a toll on Maryland. The governor designated $300,000 for the Towson University baseball program , scheduled to be eliminated of funding problems, to survive another year while the school works on fundraising. Even though the governor already added $153 million to the state's rainy day fund  with an eye toward what he called the "hara-kiri Congress," O'Malley added extra money.

"Is she going to be fine?"Crisis intervention teams in the last week have visited both Jefferson Elementary and Kenwood High School in Essex to help students cope with the violence that has touched their schools and the shock, intense anger, sadness and anxiety that they may be feeling.
