Six years ago, Victor and Margaret Kim purchased a 1-acre parcel in Fulton and proceeded to build a glamorous home with a serious purpose. Once it was completed, the couple took Margaret Kim's 96-year-old grandmother out of assisted living and into their home. The grandmother lived with the Kims in their brand-new, completely handicapped-accessible home until her death the following year. The total cost for the land and the custom-built 9,000-square-foot Colonial-style mansion came to $1.8 million.

A 29-year-old Howard County man pleaded guilty Monday to charges of vehicular manslaughter after an October incident in which he left the scene of a fatal crash after a bout of heavy drinking. Police showed up at Ray William Wolfrey's Fulton home after they followed a trail of leaking fluid from the Oct. 10 accident, which killed Mary Valenzuela, 53, of Bethesda. "I screwed up," he told investigating police at the time. "I was scared. " Authorities said he claimed he hadn't had any beer until after the accident and thought that the crash "didn't look that bad. " According to a statement of facts read at the hearing before Judge Diane Leasure, Wolfrey's blood alcohol level was tested at .25 that night, more than three times the legal limit and equal to about 8 or 9 beers for 135-pound Wolfrey, of the 12900 block of Clarksville Pike.

Jacob Rand learned about fire safety from a program sponsored by the Howard County Department of Fire and Rescue, which tells children that in the event of a house fire don't look for its source — just get out. The Fulton Elementary School third-grader didn't know that someday he would utter that directive. But on Aug. 25, he smelled smoke in his Fulton home and was the only family member who heard the fire alarm, because his siblings were asleep, his father had left the house and his mother, Vicki, was in the shower.

This year's election will be the third and last based on Howard County Council district lines drawn strictly along party lines a decade ago by a 3-2 vote and won by council Democrats after the last census. Republicans say they want to "take back the county" this year so they can redraw the lines themselves. That issue became clear at a fundraiser Sept. 16 for Republican Robert L. Flanagan. The candidate — former Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr.'s transportation secretary — is hoping to replace Democrat Courtney Watson as the council member for District 1, covering Ellicott City and Elkridge.

Forty years ago, Hilda Weber had no fears when her four small children played in the front yard of her Fulton home off Scaggsville Road.Now, she says, even adults can't walk across the two-lane road -- more popularly known these days as Route 216 -- to get her mail without worrying about getting hit by a speeding car."There's too much traffic here," said the 68-year-old grandmother of 10. "It used to be a lot of country. Now it's just houses here and houses there. I don't like it."Weber is one of many Fulton residents who are beginning to worry that the rural beauty of the area where they established homes and raised children will be wiped out by suburban sprawl.

McMahon said yesterday. The three family members were arrested and the eldest remained in jail yesterday, charged with multiple counts of first- and second-degree assault, reckless endangerment, resisting arrest and attempting to disarm an officer. "[Domestic calls] are unpredictable and fraught with peril for a lot of reasons," McMahon said.

The Howard County Planning Board has unanimously denied the request of an Elkridge man to maintain his former Fulton home as a two-family dwelling.Such a use was permitted as long as Richard Boulay lived in one of the units, but required Planning Board approval when he moved out and rented the house to another family.The 5-0 decision Wednesday night delighted neighbors who argued the two-family structure does not fit with the rest of the one-family homes in the neighborhood."I am adamantly against the use of the property as something other than a single-family residential home," said neighbor Tammy Hnarakis.

HOWARD COUNTY'S spelling bee champion, Priyanka Chavan, left the national competition last week disappointed. Priyanka, a fifth-grader at Fulton Elementary School, was eliminated Wednesday after the second round. Her combined score from a 25-word written round one and the oral round two -- in which she clinched by correctly spelling "bartizan" (a small turret on a tower or wall) -- fell short of the required point total to move to round three. "She was very, very depressed about it," said her mother, Meenakshi Chavan.
