One year after local preservationists and community leaders voiced concerns that Baltimore's Scottish Rite Temple of Freemasonry might be demolished to make way for new development, the building no longer appears threatened by the wrecker's ball. It's not completely off the endangered list, either. Leaders of the Masonic order that owns the neoClassical building at 3800 N. Charles St. have decided for now to stay at their current location rather than pursue a plan to sell the property and use the money to move to Baltimore County, according to representative Ray Leppo.

Johnny Hiland was a budding musician from a small town in Maine, a legally blind boy with a guitar and a dream of making it in Nashville. Cody Leppo was a young child when he took up the drums, a Carroll County resident emulating his father, who would play into the night. Hiland moved to the Music City in 1996, beginning the next phase of his career with regular gigs, an extended stretch playing in a band and a headline appearance at the Grand Ole Opry. Leppo, meanwhile, graduated in 2000 from Westminster High School, and three years later moved to Nashville, eventually crossing paths with Hiland.

Debbie Peyok couldn't drive her vintage Mustangs without scratching them or getting dust all over their custom paint jobs. Maria DiFatta spent thousands to replace blown tires, fix cracked windshields and realign the front ends on her family's vehicles. Dust coated their homes. The culprit? The gravel that covered the road in front of their northern Carroll County houses. Carroll County went a decade without paving any of its 92 miles of gravel roads. But a few years ago, the two women began hounding officials - in DiFatta's case, even tossing a shredded tire on the floor of a county office.

Nearly four years after stepping into the void left by the sudden death of a popular Westminster police chief, Roger G. Joneckis announced his retirement as head of the department last night to the Common Council. "The time has come for me to move on. I will be retiring on the last day of July," he said after the meeting, adding that he had no specific plan for future endeavors. Joneckis, 49, has been with the department for nearly 29 years and was eligible to retire four years ago. He chose to stay on, however, to lead the department after Chief Samuel R. Leppo was killed in a car accident in August 1999.
