It's just the start of the evening rush, and the cars are everywhere — and going fast — outside Clarence "Sonny" Jordan's house on Ritchie Highway in Arnold. The 87-year-old has lived here since 1932 — before Ritchie Highway was built — and has been trying for years to sell his property. But there's a problem, he says: No one wants to buy a piece of residentially zoned property along a busy thoroughfare. So he wants to get his 51/2 acres of land rezoned from low-density residential to commercial, increasing its value and allowing for a comfortable retirement.

A Baltimore-based commercial property manager bought the Arundel Village Plaza Shopping Center in Brooklyn Park for $6.5 million last month. Baltimore-based Oak Tree Management was one of 12 bids for the 5501-5517 Ritchie Highway site, according to Gil Neuman of Greysteel Company, which represented the seller on the deal. The sale, announced Monday, closed Jan. 31, he said.

For years, the 122 officers and civilians who work for the Anne Arundel County Police Department's Eastern District have worked in a cramped, oddly designed station in Pasadena. Prisoners have to be shuttled down a hallway between booking and holding areas. Officers do not have enough room to write reports. Computer wires dangle from the ceilings. And people often can't find the station, which is tucked away off Mountain Road. The police are about to get new digs, though.
