A former high-ranking Maryland Department of Veterans Affairs official pleaded guilty to extortion Monday in federal court after falsely claiming about $1.4 million in government benefits over a 16-year period. David Clark, a 67-year-old Hydes resident, admitted fabricating documents and claims to secure federal benefits and state tax waivers for himself and at least 17 other veterans. He acknowledged making up records in his role as the deputy chief of claims for the state agency, including fake doctors' letters saying that claimants suffered from diabetes and documents listing false tours of Vietnam and awards such as Purple Hearts from 1995 until his retirement in 2011.

Two Baltimore County councilwomen survived primary challenges Tuesday while two other incumbents lost their seats.

Baltimore County officials announced plans Friday to install sidewalks along a road segment in Middle River where residents have complained about pedestrian dangers. The county has set aside $70,000 to construct an 800-foot stretch of sidewalk with handicap ramps on Bowleys Quarters Road from the intersection of Holly Grove Road to Carroll Island Road, near a local shopping center. County Council Chairwoman Cathy Bevins, who represents that community, said she's been working with County Executive Kevin Kamenetz's office for the last few years to secure the sidewalks.

Your story regarding a proposed outlet mall in White Marsh quoted Allen Robertson as a representative of a community group in Bowleys Quarters that would be affected by the development ( "Developer eyes outlet mall along I-95 in White Marsh," Jan. 24). Bowleys Quarters is located several miles from the proposed site and is at least a 15-minute drive away. I would urge your reporters and editors to take a look at a map before deciding who you solicit comments from. Had you done so you would have easily determined that Mr. Robertson and his group are no more affected by potential traffic from this project than would be the residents of Towson, Essex, Middle River or other areas within that 15-minute zone.
