Samuel L. Gilmer, a former Annapolis alderman and civil rights activist who helped organize Anne Arundel County's NAACP chapter, died of lung cancer Tuesday at Anne Arundel Medical Center. He was 86. "Like many of his generation, Samuel Gilmer was awakened to the civil rights movement in the 1940s, when he returned home after military service in World War II to find himself and other former black soldiers treated as second-class citizens in segregated states such as Maryland, Virginia and North Carolina," a 2004 Sun article said.

In trying to dupe an unsuspecting citizen with a phony check scheme, scammers probably could've picked a better mark. Last Thursday, Anne Arundel County police Chief James P. Teare Sr. received, via FedEx, an unexpected check for $4,200 at his office at county police headquarters. He turned it over to investigators, who later determined it was fraudulent. They believe the check was sent as part of a scam in which victims are sent a large sum of money - often described as prize winnings - with instructions to deposit the check and send a portion of the proceeds to an address, typically out of the country.

For two decades, Annapolis' 3rd Ward has been represented on the city council by World War II veteran Samuel Gilmer. But Tuesday, Gilmer, 79, lost his seat to a former college administrator who challenged him for the second time. Classie Gillis Hoyle, 65, defeated Gilmer by 98 votes in the Democratic primary. She had lost to Gilmer by 152 votes in 1997. Because no other candidates have said they will run for the position in the general election, Tuesday's vote essentially assures Hoyle the seat.
