Creation of a bus route that would connect Mount Airy to Washington-area public transportation seems imminent after town residents indicated support at an informational meeting Wednesday. The route probably would begin running six times a day between Mount Airy and the Shady Grove Metro station in Montgomery County in mid-March, said Simon Taylor, manager of service development for the Maryland Transit Administration. For years, Mayor Gerald Johnson and other town leaders have advocated a bus line to relieve daily congestion between Mount Airy and Damascus, about 10 miles away in Montgomery County.

A week after the University of Maryland learned it was the target of a sophisticated data breach, President Wallace D. Loh said Tuesday that the university would extend free credit protection services to the 309,000 students, alumni and employees affected from the one year it had previously announced to five years. The university discovered last week that the Social Security numbers, birth dates and names of all students, faculty and staff issued a university ID card at College Park and at the Universities at Shady Grove in Rockville since 1998 had been stolen.

The national organization that accredits hospitals decided yesterday that it will keep Shady Grove Adventist Hospital on conditional accreditation status -- the only Maryland hospital so designated -- extending a period of unusually strict scrutiny for the Rockville facility. The attention began in October, when Shady Grove's medical staff said it was worried about quality, setting off a series of inspections and downgradings by state and federal regulators and by the private Joint Commission on the Accreditation of Health- care Organizations (JCAHO)

A health care accrediting agency has upgraded accreditation for Shady Grove Adventist Hospital after a recent survey of services at the facility, the hospital announced yesterday. The Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations, which had placed the Montgomery County hospital on conditional accreditation earlier in the year, restored the hospital to full accreditation after an unannounced survey Sept. 11-13.

Robertson, who in May became president and chief executive officer of Adventist HealthCare, the nonprofit parent company that operates Shady Grove.

A former nurse at Shady Grove Adventist Hospital was linked to a second death yesterday in a lawsuit alleging that a 54-year-old male patient there died because of her actions. The three children of John Lieb of Gaithersburg allege in the suit that nurse Coleen M. Thompson injected the full contents of a "very large syringe" containing morphine into their father's arm, though the doctor's orders were to administer the medicine slowly in drops. Thompson then told the family "that he will pass away in the next half to one hour," according to the wrongful death suit, which was filed with the state Health Claims Arbitration Office and Montgomery County Circuit Court.

SHADY GROVE - Lavina Dorris was finishing up her associate's degree last spring at Montgomery College and trying to figure out how to continue on for her bachelor's. She had the grades to transfer to the University of Maryland, College Park but commuting there from Gaithersburg on traffic-clogged Interstate 270 and the Capital Beltway could take more than an hour a day. That would be hard with her 6-year-old son, Austin, entering first grade. "We were thinking of moving, maybe up to Towson or closer to College Park," she says.

The Maryland Transportation Authority has unveiled a toll plan for the Intercounty Connector under which passenger vehicles would pay as much as 35 cents a mile for travel on the highway when its first phase opens next year. The authority also announced a series of public hearings next month to gather comments on the plan. Since the ICC's revival under the administration of former Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr., the state has planned to set tolls for the highway at levels that would keep it free of congestion by setting prices that would detour a certain amount of the east-west traffic onto free local roads.

Health officials said Monday that they are trying to contain Maryland's first measles outbreak since 2001, after a fourth case was diagnosed in Montgomery County. Since February, three adults and a baby have developed measles, a highly infectious viral disease characterized by a red skin rash. Most Americans are immunized against measles, which has largely disappeared in the U.S. But last year, the number of cases doubled throughout the nation, which health officials attributed mostly to people who traveled overseas and may not be inoculated or have poor immune systems.

WASHINGTON - The House easily passed a $284 billion highway measure yesterday that could shower transportation cash all over the country - including millions in Maryland. Over the five-year period covered by the legislation, ending in 2009, the state would be in line to receive as much as $3.4 billion in highway funding. Maryland will not get everything state officials asked for, but the bill does authorize funding for mass transit projects, including $156 million to expand the MARC rail line, and several road-construction projects.
