Police said Laquesha Lewis, 25, fought with Robert Holiday 27, at her home on Shagbark Road when he attempted to visit his child.

Parents of Sussex Elementary School students, particularly a vocal minority among them, should calm down. After routine asbestos tests at the Essex school registered 40 times more asbestos material in the air than expected, school officials reacted admirably. Administrators closed the school and found five other sites to send the students.Yet it is understandable that parents would be deeply concerned about the health of their children. Asbestos, an insulation material much used until 10 to 20 years ago, can cause cancer if an individual receives high exposure to the material over a long period of time.

An estimated 2.4 million gallons of sewage overflowed Sunday afternoon into the Back River in Essex, the Department of Public Works said Tuesday in a statement. The waterfront at Rocky Point, Cox's Point and Edgemere Park was posted with overflow notices by Baltimore County. The overflow, largely attributable to heavy rainfall, lasted from about 12:20 p.m. until about 2:00 p.m. A large volume of rain water in the sewer lines increased beyond normal levels the amount of sewage coming into the Back River Wastewater Treatment Plant in Baltimore County, according to the department.

For Sunday's Essex Day Festival, Jeff Swope will prepare nearly 800 pounds of pit beef, considered by many along Baltimore County's eclectic east side to be one of the basic food groups. Swope, 34, is owner and chief griller at Big Al's Pit Beef, an east-side institution. For 14 years, he has sliced and served sandwiches from his stand along the midway as part of Essex's annual celebration of itself. "This is a proud place," said Swope, whose one-room barbecue shack is two blocks from the festival site on Eastern Boulevard.

Having been assigned to Precinct 11 in Essex for the last four years until my retirement in November, I am very familiar with the school resource officers at Chesapeake High School who were involved in the use of pepper spray to break up a fight between two students ("How much force is too much?" Dec. 16). Both officers have been at the school for years; they know and care about the kids and work well with the administration. And you can be assured that In the Baltimore County Police Department, every incident like this one is critiqued and evaluated to see if the officers acted properly, whether additional training is needed and whether things should be done differently in the future.
