Businesses and Howard County police are working to curb loitering at Long Reach Village Center, worried that teens congregating by the Safeway entrance or at the bus stop are disturbing customers. The center has had more loitering this summer, business representatives said, likely stemming from a combination of a new HotSpot coordinator and new village center owners who are not familiar with the problem. "In certain circumstances, you may have people who feel a little unsafe walking into a dark parking lot with people hanging out around the shopping plaza," said Kevin Henry, manager of the village center's Safeway.

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.

Nearby Columbia residents fear that the Rouse Co. proposal for the new town's second giant warehouse-style retail complex may hasten the decline of their community shopping center and worsen congestion on one of the county's busiest and most dangerous traffic corridors.But county officials say road adjustments can be made to handle the increased traffic, and they praised the proposed $45 million retail hub on Route 175 between Dobbin Road and Snowden River Parkway for the taxes and jobs it would generate.
