R.I.P. Handy. It's given name was The Epicentral Shrine to the Helping Hand Vehicular, but one look at Conrad Bladey's beloved art car made it immediately clear why everyone knew it as Handy. A 1990 Pontiac Grand Am, Handy was covered front-to-back, but especially on top, with dozens of mostly bright-red fiberglass hands. No one who saw it on the streets of Baltimore, or hitting the road in its northern Anne Arundel County home of Linthicum, will ever forget the sight. Handy always made quite an impression.

When a 60-year-old amateur historian died in February, dozens of Linthicum Heights residents decided they wanted to do something to remember the man who remembered and preserved the history of their community. Oscar "Skip" Booth was a local librarian, former president of the Ann Arrundell County Historical Society and had recently written his 100th historical "vignette" about Linthicum when he died unexpectedly of complications from a stroke. Soon after Booth's death, members of the Linthicum-Shipley Historic Association, a nonprofit that funds community projects, hatched the plan to build a memorial bench and place it along a local trail, said Kate Graf, secretary-treasurer of the group.

Leonard T. Schroeder Jr. was a North Linthicum native and a graduate of Glen Burnie High School, but 70 years ago he carved out a moment in history for himself when, on the morning of the Allied invasion of Normandy, he was credited with being the first American to step ashore in France. In the days following the invasion that marked the beginning of the end of the war in Europe, Schroeder was cited in newspaper clippings as likely being the first American soldier to reach Europe in the amphibious invasion.

There will be no more wedding receptions, birthday dinners or high school reunions at Snyder's Willow Grove. For 77 years, the Linthicum Heights restaurant and banquet hall hosted countless family and community celebrations and special dinners. But storms at the end of April forced the Patapsco River over its banks, depositing a foot of water and mud in the Snyder's dining rooms. For Mother's Day, co-owner Vernon Snyder was preparing to serve 1,200 customers, a healthy crowd on one of the restaurant's busiest days of the year.

A Linthicum man and two juveniles were arrested Sunday, authorities said, after police searched a car and found 70 boxes of ammunition belonging to the U.S. Air Marshals. At 1:49 a.m., a patrol officer on Hammonds Lane saw a black Chevy strike a curb, drive down Robinwood Road and park on Cresswell Road, Anne Arundel County police reported. As the vehicle sat with its lights off, the officer approached the driver, who said he was checking for damage, police said.
