Deputy state fire marshals on Sunday arrested a Joppa man who they believe set two small fires in a woman's apartment after getting into an argument with her. The Office of the State Fire Marshal said Ryan Lawrence Spann, 28, argued with a woman living at 209 Foxhall Drive, an apartment complex in Bel Air, before the woman left. Deputies said Spann then set two fires in the apartment with "ordinary household items," which the woman discovered when she returned home about 1 a.m. Sunday to smoke alarms sounding.

When the second plane slammed into the south tower of the World Trade Center on Sept. 11, 2001, Stacy Spann had a bird's-eye view of the firestorm from his employer's office a mere block away. Anxious that the skyscraper where his wife was working could be targeted next, he called Shannon and told her to get out of her high-rise and go to a friend's house, even as he watched workers jumping from the burning buildings. As the last train leaving Manhattan pulled away with him on it, he looked over his shoulder and watched the twin towers fall.

The trip from public housing at Guilford Gardens to tony Maple Lawn, Maryland is a short one across a small corner of southern Howard County, but Stacy Spann's journey included detours in Georgia, New York, Boston and Baltimore. The incoming county housing director, whose second child, Sydney, was born late on the night that his new job was announced Dec. 12, is an enthusiastic advocate for Howard County - both the poor and rich parts. "I'm a testament to the fact that people of all income levels live here," Spann, 33, said in an interview.

The athletic director at a small Christian preparatory school in Woodlawn was arrested yesterday and charged in the rape of a teen-age student in a school bathroom. The allegation has shaken officials at Gwynn Lake College Preparatory School, which prides itself on traditional values, but parents said they remain committed to the school's mission. School officials and Baltimore County police are checking for other possible victims. Authorities are also investigating claims that another teacher at the school knew of the alleged rape but did not report it. Keith A. Williams, 31, of the 4000 block of Fernhill Ave. turned himself in to police after a warrant on second-degree rape, third-degree sexual assault and child abuse charges was issued Wednesday.

Rents for some of Howard County's lowest-income public housing residents are going up for the first time in decades, starting Dec. 1. The county's Housing Commission voted unanimously Tuesday to increase rents at Hilltop Housing, a first move in changing the way the county's oldest public housing complex in Ellicott City operates. "We need to stop some of the [financial] bleeding," county housing director Stacy L. Spann told the five commissioners. Spann said he also wants, as yearly leases expire and units become vacant, to begin bringing in families with slightly higher incomes who can pay more rent.

After requesting $4.4 million, Howard County is to get $750,000 in federal foreclosure relief funds from the state to buy, fix and resell bank-owned vacant homes. That would be enough for "2.5 homes," the county's housing director, Stacy L. Spann, said recently, though he added that Howard might get a second crack at more money if some funds are left unspent. The other frustration is that the money can't be used to prevent foreclosures, only to recycle homes already owned by banks, Spann said.

The elusive goal of owning a detached, single-family home in Howard County may soon be within reach for a few limited-income buyers as county officials develop plans for 10 affordable new homes in Savage, and perhaps more later. Unlike other government housing programs that depend on private builders' projects, these homes would be developed by the county's Housing Commission on land purchased six years ago. The nearly 4-acre plot is on Marys Lane, off Guilford Road. The commission owns about 20 acres elsewhere in the same neighborhood that could be developed later, said Stacy L. Spann, the housing director.

After almost four decades of charging families a fraction of their income to live in Howard County's largest public housing complex, county officials are considering substantial rent increases. Concern over the ability to cover operating costs at the 94-unit Hilltop Housing community in Ellicott City while major repairs on the aging complex are looming has led county housing director Stacy L. Spann to propose the increase. Funding for the townhouse and apartment community comes from a one-eighth share of the county's real estate transfer tax. But the housing slump has reduced that revenue from $4.7 million in fiscal 2006 to a projected $2.8 million this year.

People with limited incomes who want to buy or rent a home in Howard County will have another chance Saturday at a county-sponsored housing fair at Long Reach High School. Two Elkridge houses, one apartment condominium in Columbia, and one rental townhouse in North Laurel - all newly renovated - are to be awarded to qualified buyers at the event, which kicks off preparations for a new round of home purchases in May under the county's Moderate Income Housing Unit program. The county is trying to build a list of pre-qualified buyers it can use whenever new MIHU homes become available.
