The Anne Arundel County Department of Public Works said it could cost $3 million to fix road damage caused by Tuesday's heavy rainstorm. The most badly damaged road in the county was Marley Neck Road near Marcy Drive in Glen Burnie, which will be closed for "an extended period of time," according to public works officials. Crews need to repair a 12-inch water pipe, an 8-inch gravity sewer pipe, a 32-inch force main sewer pipe and other utilities underneath the road. Other damaged roads could be closed for two to three weeks.

A gun shot fired during a chase whizzed several hundred feet through the Glen Burnie air Friday night police said, before lodging in a wall just four feet above a sleeping five year old. Anne Arundel County police said the incident started just before 10 p.m. when a 27-year-old man was approached by an armed man in the 7900 block of Gentle Breeze Court. The victim ran away and was chased by the gunman, who fired multiple shots, police said. One of the bullets flew across the street and went through the front window of a home in the 400 block of Secluded Post Circle, police said, only coming to rest when it struck a wall above where the young child was sleeping.

About a dozen schoolchildren at the Willows Apartments in Glen Burnie queued up curbside as the Anne Arundel County school bus pulled up. Some kids were flanked by parents and toddler siblings who appeared just as excited to see the bus; the moment had all the trappings of the first day of school. But that's a few weeks away. Instead, the bus had come with a mainstay for students in the area: healthy meals. School officials opened the rear of the bus and set up tables with some of the same food offered during the school year, feeding not only the schoolchildren but siblings who won't begin classes for a couple of years.

I have read many articles about Michael Peroutka, the Anne Arundel County Council candidate for District 5 ( "Hogan, GOP concerned about Arundel candidate's ties to secessionist group," July 25). These articles are mostly made up of name-calling, rumors and other allegations without any evidence or sources other than the Southern Poverty Law Center, which is a tainted source at best. Where are the articles that actually include facts? Where are the supposed exposes on the other candidates?

A 57-year-old Glen Burnie man pleaded guilty Tuesday to theft of thousands of aluminum carts from the U.S. Postal Service that will cost more than $2.8 million to replace, according to the U.S. State's Attorney's Office. Officials allege Roland Michael Muir and another man stole about 2,030 containers and sold them to metal recyclers for more than $323,000. Prosecutors said Muir worked for a private mailer company in Baltimore driving a box truck, and from July 2010 to 2014 he drove the truck to two U.S. Postal Service bulk mail centers in Capitol Heights where he took the large containers and loaded them on the truck.
