A Sykesville man has been indicted on charges that he burglarized his neighbors' homes in Howard County, committing two break-ins at a residence whose owner told police his computer was taken and a third where a bottle of Viagra was stolen. A grand jury handed up indictments last week charging James Taylor Bell, 21, of the 1100 block of Underwood Road of multiple counts of burglary and theft. Police said in charging documents last month that he confessed and was charged Dec. 28. Charging documents say that county investigators linked Bell to burglaries committed Dec. 8 and Dec. 13 at a home in the 1100 block of Underwood Road through a laptop stolen from there.

Kirk McEwen wasn't nervous when he entered the radio booth at Oriole Park last Saturday. The Sykesville resident had been behind a microphone a few thousand times during a long broadcasting career. But this was different. McEwen was one of 25 semifinalists who participated in an open competition on Feb. 11 to determine the new public address announcer for the Baltimore Orioles. Even though he wasn't among the eight finalists chosen by Orioles' officials, McEwen will remember the experience.
