Officials at an animal rescue center in Harwood said Friday they are housing the feral cat that last week prompted closure of Richard Henry Lee Elmentary School in Glen Burnie. Anne Arundel County school officials had spotted the cat last Friday and, after failing to capture it, closed the school over concerns that students might be bitten or scratched. The cat was finally caught Sept. 2 by county animal control officials. On Friday, officials from Rude Ranch Animal Rescue in Harwood, a volunteer-based nonprofit, said animal rescue had brought the feline to its facility.

The developer says his planned center for heroin addicts in a North Baltimore neighborhood would be revolutionary: a primary care facility that would treat all aspects of addict's lives, not just dole out methadone. But Harwood residents see it as more of the same for a community they say is already filled with people bused in for addiction services. More addicts, they say, lead to more public urination, drug use and crime. "When the lifeboat is full, the next person being worthy doesn't make it any less likely to sink," said Joe McNeely, president of a neighborhood coalition opposed to the center.

WASHINGTON - American political journalism lost one of its giants the other day with the death at 75 of Dick Harwood, former reporter, editor and taskmaster of reporters and politicians alike for more than 30 years at the Washington Post. Mr. Harwood, a Marine veteran of Iwo Jima who often seemed still to be at war in the newsroom and on the campaign trail, was a certifiable tough guy who didn't suffer fools gladly, whether they were journalism colleagues or the pols he reported on. I first encountered him on the presidential campaign of Sen. Robert F. Kennedy in 1968, as a competitor.
