Parking issues are holding up plans for a New York-style pizzeria with live music in Hampden. Kelly Beckham, 44, of Butchers Hill, said he wants to open Paulie Gee's Hampden this summer on the first floor of the former Hampden Republican Club building at 3535 Chestnut Ave. The 125-seat, 6,000-square-foot eatery would have outdoor seating and would specialize in non-traditional pizzas like braised fennel and fresh mozzerella with anisette cream drizzle....

LONACONING -- Republicans from far and wide have come to a grand old place in Lonaconing -- the meeting hall of the Grand Old Party where members have assembled for debate, drink and duckpins for 49 years.Hidden away in the Western Maryland mountains of Allegany County, the Lonaconing Republican Club is legendary for its party loyalty, so much so that its members boast that it is the largest such Republican club in the nation."I think we are considered the largest Republican Club incorporated in the United States," said club President Marvin "Huck" Shockey.

The Howard County African-American Republican Club yesterday has widened the party's so-called big tent enough to endorse Circuit Judges Donna Hill Staton and Diane O. Leasure -- winners of the Democratic primary and Gov. Parris N. Glendening's appointees.The women's qualifications -- along with the gender and racial diversity they bring as the county's first female circuit judge and first black judge -- swayed the 15-member group to endorse them, club president Delroy L. Cornick Sr. said.

The dart teams walked out on David D. Morgan Sr. late last week. Three of his pool squads had already left, packing their cue sticks when they learned the Hampden Republican Club could no longer sell its $1.50 beers. For the dart-tossing, pool-shooting crowd, that was simply an unacceptable change after decades of being able to buy drinks there. "For 19 1/2 years the Democratic Club served alcohol," said Morgan, 61, referring to a former life of the establishment he now runs. Pacing in his empty club in an Orioles cap and T-shirt, Morgan added, "I drank with Schaefer at this very bar while he was running for mayor."

The fire in Bob Ehrlich's tone matched the red of his polo shirt. His friend, former New York Mayor Rudolph Giuliani, had just finished a fierce speech dismissing Democrat Martin O'Malley as the "most anti-business governor in the country. " His one-time tea party antagonist, Brian Murphy, sat by the stage offering support. The Republican candidate for governor seemed in his element, spoiling for a fight. "He can't market what he's done," Ehrlich shouted to hundreds of supporters against the brilliant autumn backdrop of a Montgomery County farm.

At its last gathering, the ready-to-disband Mount Royal Democratic Club drew one of its biggest crowds in recent years to mark the end of an era Saturday evening at the club's annual holiday bash. Organizers said it was the final hurrah for a club that no longer has a place in an age of community association activism, the Internet and too many other demands on members' time. Several hundred formally dressed people, including current and former members and invited guests, mingled with top elected Democrats over cocktails and pate while a brass quartet entertained in the marble lobby of the MICA building in the 1300 block of Mount Royal Ave. Gov. Martin O'Malley joked that the club's president, former state Sen. Julian L. Lapides, had come up with a great marketing gimmick, advertising the bash each year as the final one, likening it to "the Cher farewell tour.

It seems to be a tradition in Maryland for Republicans to say they are planning to run for governor - but would happily bow out if Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. gets in the race. Audrey E. Scott, now the state Republican chairwoman, and businessman John M. Kane stepped forward nearly a decade ago as admitted backup candidates before Ehrlich, then in Congress, announced his candidacy for governor and eventually won. This year, Del. Patrick L. McDonough, a Baltimore County Republican, says he's thinking of running but is willing to step aside if Ehrlich jumps in this winter.

For several months, the Carroll County Republican Club met inconspicuously at a Woodbine residence, while two of its officers faced campaign finance charges. The political club's lawyers had advised keeping a low-profile and limiting interaction with the media while the case was pending. But the club embarked on a significant change of course last week. With the charges thrown out earlier this summer, the club gathered publicly for the first time, undertaking an effort to expand membership and generate support for conservative Republican causes in Carroll and across Maryland.

A rebellion among Republicans in conservative Carroll County has some GOP faithful doing the unthinkable in the commissioner election this year: supporting a Democrat who aims to be the first of his party on the three-member board in more than a dozen years. Prominent Republicans throughout the county are lending support to a ticket with Republican incumbents Julia Walsh Gouge and Dean L. Minnich and Democrat Dennis E. Beard, a retired firefighter from Sykesville. That's unusual in a county where registered Republican voters outnumber Democrats by nearly 2 to 1. The effort could mean defeat for Michael D. Zimmer, an Eldersburg attorney who ousted incumbent Commissioner Perry L. Jones in the Republican primary.

The Republican Women's Club of Carroll County and a few male guests who gathered last week in Eldersburg talked politics, sipped punch and munched on star-shaped cookies coated with red, white and blue sprinkles. But the main item on their agenda was an imminent phone call. First lady Laura Bush would be "calling with a personal message," announced Gerrye Johnston, party hostess and the club's membership committee chairwoman. "This is a phenomenal blessing for us," Johnston said. That the one small party with about 15 guests was among 7,000 other groups sharing in the conversation did not dampen their enthusiasm.
