A second community meeting to discuss plans for a Target-anchored shopping center in Lothian satisfied Anne Arundel County law - but definitely not most of the 450 people who attended. Before Tuesday night's event began, the raucous crowd assembled at a Wayson's Corner bingo hall and loudly derided the meeting's organization. And before it was over, residents guffawed, groaned and lashed out at the developer's representatives, accusing them of playing down the project's impact on South County.

An Atlanta developer that once tried to purchase dilapidated Parole Plaza, the vacant mall at the gateway to the state's capital city, may be back in the running to redevelop the site, according to a company director and a county official. Jacoby Development Inc., which announced in September that it wanted to buy the mall but never secured a purchase deal, has been quietly negotiating with Parole Plaza representatives even as another developer, Walt Petrie of Annapolis, tried to take control of the site.

A local developer who county officials hoped would breathe life into the long-vacant Parole Plaza is pulling out of the project, becoming the third developer in as many years to pass on the 34-acre mall at the nexus of highways just west of Annapolis. Walt Petrie of Annapolis said yesterday he could not come to terms with Parole Plaza owner Carl Freedman of New Jersey, son of the original plaza's developer. Freedman had planned a $250 million makeover of the dilapidated mall for close to a decade, but the plans stalled because he let the required permits lapse.

Annapolis-based Petrie Ventures Inc. said yesterday that it will demolish part of the struggling, 40-year-old Glen Burnie Mall to make room for a Target store and lure other higher-end retailers to the Ritchie Highway corridor. Petrie said its two-year revitalization project will pump $8 million in investments into Anne Arundel County and create about 250 jobs. The renovation seeks to reverse the steady decline of a mall that has suffered from growing competition and the loss of its anchor Montgomery Ward store more than a year ago. Petrie Ventures has recruited Chick-fil-A, Bennigan's restaurant and Salvo Auto Parts to the mall site to join the new Target, which is expected to open in 2004.

In the latest round of an ongoing skirmish, a group of gay U.S. Naval Academy graduates is pressing the academy's alumni association to approve an anti-discrimination policy when its board of trustees meets Thursday - a step the association rejects as unnecessary. Jeff Petrie of San Francisco, a 1989 graduate, said yesterday that he and others plan to attend the board meeting in Alumni Hall to make the point - if only as silent observers - that some homosexual and transgender academy graduates favor having an explicit policy written into the 51,000- member alumni association's bylaws.

A Baltimore brain surgeon and an Annapolis real estate developer who grew up on opposite sides of Detroit have teamed up to establish a $25,000 scholarship fund for Freetown Elementary School in Glen Burnie. It is the first time a county public school has been chosen for the Carson Scholars Fund, which awards scholarships in Washington and several states, including Maryland, Pennsylvania, North Carolina and Wisconsin. The developer, Walter Petrie, said that when he and his wife, Nancy, heard Dr. Benjamin Carson of Johns Hopkins Hospital speak over dinner this year about rising from a Detroit slum to make his way to medical school, they were immediately inspired to contribute to the fund.
