Leopold, a county lawyer said Thursday. Police Chief Col. James E.

An effort to oust Columbia Councilwoman Cecilia Januszkiewicz failed last night when a majority of the Long Reach Village Board declined to call a special meeting for a recall. A group of residents, angry over Januszkiewicz's support of former Columbia Association President Deborah O. McCarty, has been trying to remove her from office for months. In April elections, Long Reach voters approved a charter amendment that allows for recalling its representative to the Columbia Council. Soon thereafter, the village board received a petition with 53 signatures, asking them to call a special meeting to recall Januszkiewicz, who has a year left on her two-year term.

The Crofton Civic Association postponed action last night on the community group's budget until all residents could be notified of the vote. A 75-34 vote by residents to postpone action on the budget came minutes after Civic Association President Gayle Sears told those at the meeting that a vote would violate community by-laws that require "clear notification" to residents before the vote. Sears said she will call a special meeting before the end of the month and send letters to each homeowner notifying them of the future votes.

HARRISBURG, Pa. -- The Pennsylvania House approved legislation yesterday that may help AlliedSignal Inc. in its $9.8 billion hostile bid for AMP Inc., the world's largest maker of electronic connectors.A last-minute amendment would allow AlliedSignal to call a special meeting of AMP's shareholders to consider its offer. That conflicts with an AMP proposal -- also passed by the House -- that limits AlliedSignal's ability to take a shareholder vote for a year and could derail the entire legislation.

L. Gardner Inc. preliminary approval in June to build the plant, which would recycle 20,000 tons of concrete and asphalt a year.

The Annapolis Symphony Orchestra's board of trustees has reaffirmed its decision not to extend musical director Leslie B. Dunner's contract beyond this season. Board members would not comment after a special meeting Jan. 15 to discuss Dunner's dismissal, but ASO President Fred H. "Bud" Billups released a statement stating that the board backed last fall's controversial decision by a unanimous vote. He also stated that the board would support Dunner, 47, if he pursues another job. Billups shed little additional light on what prompted Dunner's ouster, stating only that the reasons are "personnel issues solely relating to administrative matters."
