A stretch of road near Route 198 in Maryland City will remain closed until at least today for repairs from a water main break that began Wednesday night and lasted nearly 14 hours. Crews from the county Department of Public Works responded to the break at Red Clay Road that occurred around 8:30 p.m. Wednesday. The situation was compounded, officials said, when workers struck an unmarked gas line four hours later halting most repairs until Baltimore Gas and Electric Co. workers sealed that line and rerouted gas service to customers in Maryland City and the Russett Community.

The students said they know jaywalking on the major thoroughfare is dangerous - three people have been struck and killed by drivers there in the past six months - but they said they've become accustomed to drivers yielding to them on campus. "Because on campus the cars have to stop for you, we all are so used to it," said Elizabeth Steidl. "So we just walk wherever we want.

The Anne Arundel County Board of Education said last week that at least 50 people have applied for the position of superintendent. The school system closed its application deadline Monday for the vacant superintendent position and now begins the process of picking a permanent replacement for Kevin Maxwell, who left the school system in August to take a similar position in Prince George's County. Stacy Korbelak, chair of the ad hoc superintendent search committee, said the firm conducting the search, Iowa-based Ray and Associates, was expected to give the school system access to its applications database, allowing each board member to review all applications and recommend up to 12 applicants for interviews "We will meet on March 5 to narrow down the list to somewhere between six to eight applicants," Korbelak said.

Baltimore was among just 25 cities in the country to receive top marks for LGBT equality in a new study of municipalities released by the Human Rights Campaign on Tuesday. The study, known as the Municipality Equality Index, rated 291 cities across the country on a range of issues related to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender rights, including whether they had same-sex marriage laws, offer employment protections and track hate crimes. The study found that "cities across the country, including in Maryland, continued to prove that municipalities will act to support equality for LGBT people, even where states and the federal government have failed to do so," according to the HRC, the country's largest LGBT rights organization.
