A bank teller manager from Odenton pleaded guilty in federal court in Greenbelt yesterday to embezzling more than $35,000. Theresa Williamson, 40, worked at Wachovia Bank in Laurel starting in 2002, according to court documents. Over two years, she transferred about $35,920 from a vault to her checking account, prosecutors said. The transactions generally involved between $1,000 and $2,000 each. She would create a "miscellaneous cash out ticket" for the amount she had taken to balance the bank's records, documents say. Because the bank rarely audited the vault, the crime was not discovered until an audit Sept.

Harvey Barnsley Kershaw Jr., who rose from teller to chairman during nearly half a century with Provident Bank, died of pneumonia Sunday at Greater Baltimore Medical Center. The Ruxton resident was 87. As the bank's president, Mr. Kershaw made it a point to answer all his phone calls personally by announcing his name - without even a customary hello - as the line rang. He also believed that the bank's customers, whom he described as hard-working Baltimoreans, liked to have their savings noted in a passbook.

MY CAB DRIVER made me an offer I had no trouble accepting. On the way into the office, he'd drive me through a neighborhood he calls the Twilight Zone, a place of drug dealers and transvestites better known as Barclay Street, south of North Avenue to Oliver Street. True, at high noon on a Thursday, there was a knot of dealers ready to supply the goods. I saw his point about this troubled address, but had a different reaction to what I viewed. Were the temperature not in the 20s, I might have been walking through this section.
