A broken water valve in an underground pipe on U.S. 40 at Rogers Avenue in Ellicott City affected operations in Howard County's George Howard Building yesterday, and repairs will disrupt traffic tomorrow night, county officials said. James M. Irvin, the county public works director, said county workers tried to repair the valve early yesterday but postponed the job after finding it would be more complex than first thought. As a result, the valve bringing water down Rogers Avenue to the county government complex was closed to stop water leakage, and rerouting the flow caused another blockage to the George Howard Building.

The last Howard County employees left the George Howard Building for temporary office quarters in Columbia in November, but a few citizens still show up at the former government headquarters to try to pay their taxes. "People think the county building is still here. They come and want to pay their taxes," ignoring the construction machines, the mud and the blue partitions intended to keep them out, said Clark Interiors' superintendent Jim Summers of the $23.5 million renovation of the government complex on Court House Drive in Ellicott City.

As Elkridge residents try to block a large CSX rail cargo transfer facility from their neighborhood, Howard County Council members are moving to get their own environmental analyses of two possible county sites for the $150 million project. The idea is to give county government and local residents "another layer of oversight," said County Councilwoman Courtney Watson, a Democrat who represents Elkridge and is the resolution's main sponsor. Watson has support from two other council members, giving the measure majority support on the five-member council.

Howard County's proposed operating budget may total $1.56 billion, but it was the minute details of what local government does that occupied the County Council's initial face-to-face reviews of government agencies Thursday at the George Howard building. Detention center administrator Jack Kavanagh drew cheers, for instance, when he told the council he's forcing the contractor who sells the jail cleaning solution to use 55-gallon drums instead of one-gallon bottles. "We're saving $5,000 a year," he said to huzzahs from the members.

Two decades ago, a speeding truck smashed into a car carrying Clare Meitl's 16-year-old daughter Jodi and two friends as they drove toward Centennial High School. One girl died and Jodi was badly injured — she spent two weeks at Maryland Shock Trauma Center and took years to recover. "She had no chance" against the truck, Meitl said of her daughter's best friend, who died. Now Meitl's only child has a young daughter and lives in the same neighborhood, and the family wants her to be safe.

New zoning approved Wednesday night for Howard County's oldest shopping center would allow a mixture of apartments, offices and stores to replace the partly empty Normandy Center on U.S. 40 in Ellicott City. Over neighborhood objections, the county zoning board, composed of the five County Council members, unanimously approved a zoning change that will allow the dense development. Before the panel could issue that approval, members had to rule that the County Council had erred by denying "traditional neighborhood zoning" for the property during comprehensive rezoning in 2004.

In the three recession years ending in mid-2010, Howard County netted just 83 new jobs, according to state labor figures, but local officials are proud to have seen any growth at all — especially compared with big losses in surrounding counties. Over that same period, Frederick County lost a net 2,257 jobs, Anne Arundel lost 4,401, Baltimore County lost 10,394, and Montgomery County lost 14,034. Across all of Maryland, the net job loss was 65,089. "We were the only county in the area to gain jobs," county finance director Sharon Greisz told a combined meeting of the county's Economic Outlook and the Spending Affordability committees Wednesday morning at the George Howard building in Ellicott City.

Howard County's 85 beekeepers are happy about the new, bee-friendly rules unanimously approved Monday night by the Howard County Council, but Sam Peperone is not. Peperone, a retired West Columbia man, started the debate over bees three years ago by complaining that neighbors Dan and Jeri Hemerlein's bees were swarming on his property, searching for water. The process ended Monday night in an overhaul of zoning rules that had classified the insects as farm animals and required them to be 200 feet from a neighbor's property.

Some Howard County state legislators are skeptical of an Ulman administration proposal to raise the local hotel/motel tax, presented as an idea to increase tourism and economic development, because the draft legislation presented at a public hearing doesn't say where the new revenue would go. Sen. James N. Robey, a Democrat, said he was concerned that the money wouldn't be set aside by law "I thought it would be in the bill. Why isn't that in the bill?" he asked David B. Nitkin, County Executive Ken Ulman's new lobbyist, at the hearing Monday night in the George Howard building in Ellicott City.

The Ulman administration is moving to buy the 160,000-square-foot Columbia office building Howard County has leased since 2008. County Executive Ken Ulman said the $26 million purchase of the Ascend One building was "too good to pass up," partly because it would produce an operating profit during the first few years of the two-decade-long repayment. He is asking the County Council for approval to sell bonds and borrow the purchase price in legislation set for introduction Jan. 3 but filed Wednesday.
