A Howard Circuit Court judge declined yesterday to intervene in a repeat Columbia Council election set for tomorrow in Long Reach village -- at least for now.Leaving the court the option of having final say, Judge Raymond J. Kane Jr. refused six-year incumbent Dr. Gail Bailey's request for an injunction halting the contest and an immediate ruling on her apparent ballot victory over challenger Roy T. Lyons in a disputed April 24 election.Regardless of who wins at the Long Reach polls tomorrow, attorneys for both candidates say the case, which likely will be heard next month, will hinge on an interpretation of Columbia's voting rules.

A Long Reach village board member said she opposes a proposal to build a "family fun center" at Dobbin Road and Tamar Drive because the site is near a rental housing community known for drug activity.But even though the board voted to oppose the proposal months ago, it is "not necessarily unanimous" on the issue, said Phil Blustein, board vice chairman.Building an amusement center at the 6.5-acre site next to Long Reach Park and near the village center could attract "bad influences," said board member Nancy D. Smith.
