The father and son who were fatally shot on New Year's Day in Southwest Baltimore were pronounced dead 15 minutes apart, police said. The men were identified as Frank Anthony Turner, 48, and Anthony Dionne Turner, 21, both of the 1500 block of Shields Place in West Baltimore, according to police. Police said the men were standing in the 3900 block of Edmondson Ave. at about 3:20 p.m. when an unknown person opened fire on them. Police have not released a possible motive in the shooting or a description of the gunman, but police spokesman Capt.

So glad to see Del. Frank Turner drop the hybrid-school-board proposal. I have been following this issue for the past several weeks and could not figure out why our elected officials would want to take a great working school board from the finest school district in the state and start making drastic changes. We have nine grandkids in the Howard County school system and have a vested interest in having a balanced elected school board without gerrymandering from County Executive Ken Ulman and Del. Frank Turner.

Del. Guy Guzzone, who had been considering a run for Howard County executive in 2014, has ruled out such a race and will seek re-election to the General Assembly. Guzzone,  who represents the east county 13th District, said Thuesday night that he had not yet decided whether to run for re-election to the House or to seek the Senate seat being vacated by fellow Democrat James Robey, who recently announced his retirement. All three delegates from the 13th, a Democratic stronghold, have attained leadership poisitions in the House that could make staying put an attractive option.

Del. Frank Turner raised a fundamental question of ethics in his Oct. 4 letter. Notably, does an elected official represent the citizens of his district or his appointed legislative position? Most of us believe that representation of the citizens comes first. Del. Turner's response to that principle stands in stark contrast. I do not fault his position on the issue of gaming. I fault his feckless justification for saying one thing and enthusiastically doing another. The citizens of Howard County's District 13 clearly come a distant second to Del. Turner's assigned duties as chairman of a legislative subcommittee.

A state lawmaker from Howard County killed a proposal to restructure the local school board Wednesday, amid strong opposition from residents, parent-teacher groups and sitting members of the education panel. Del. Frank Turner withdrew a plan that would have changed the makeup of the board to include two appointed members and five elected by district. The board now has seven members elected at large. Turner said he did not plan to revisit the matter before the 2014 election. He said he made the decision in light of the concerns he heard about the measure.

Howard County school board member Allen Dyer, who has battled the panel's attempts to oust him, was eliminated in Tuesday's school board primary, as 14 candidates battled for six spots on November's ballot. The vote comes during a difficult period for the school board, which has been beset by personality clashes, infighting, and calls by some community groups to either resolve conflicts or step down. Challengers have said throughout the campaign that they would work to improve the tenor of discussion, while incumbents have argued that despite their differences they preside over an effective system.

Even as the Howard County School Board Study Commission decided to recommend a change in selecting the board's members, panel member Paul Lemle argued that more time was needed to explore options and gauge community responses. The commission's recommendation, which was ultimately crafted into a bill by Del. Frank Turner, was hotly debated for four hours Tuesday night at an often-emotional public hearing. Turner withdrew the bill the next day. But concerns about school board representation, and the tensions the issue exposed during the commission proceedings and public hearing, persist.

Former Howard County teachers union President Ann De Lacy and Leslie Kornreich, who ran unsuccessfully in the last election, have filed to run for the Howard County school board, joining incumbents Janet Siddiqui and Ellen Flynn Giles. Their candidacies come months after Howard County officials tried unsuccessfully to alter the makeup of the board to address some residents' concerns about its racial and geographic diversity. If elected, De Lacy, who is African-American, and Kornreich, who is from Hanover — an area where residents have complained about lack of board representation — might quell some of those concerns.

Democrat Alan Klein received some significant support Tuesday as Del. Elizabeth Bobo formally endorsed his primary challenge to incumbent Mary Kay Sigaty for a seat on the Howard County Council. The Sept. 14 primary contest in West Columbia's District 4 race is the latest fallout from the County Council's February approval of new zoning to allow the three-decade redevelopment of downtown Columbia, which Bobo represents in the Maryland House of Delegates. The announcement, made to reporters over iced tea on the quiet deck of Bobo's Columbia home, formalized the support she acknowledged she'd been giving Klein all along.
