A planned Southern Maryland power plant that was to be built with state help — an arrangement that set off an industry fight — landed financing Friday to start construction despite a court ruling quashing the assistance. Silver Spring-based Competitive Power Ventures and its partners said they received financing from 15 lenders, including GE Energy Financial Services, which anchored the effort. Major construction on the $775 million Waldorf plant is expected to start in September.

Both are part of a relatively brisk retail development market.Rapid growth in the still predominantly rural Charles County -- the population went from 47,000 in 1970 to 101,0000 in 1990 -- and the success of recently opened major retail developments appear to be keeping commercial developers interested in Waldorf.

A Waldorf man was ordered imprisoned for life Tuesday for trying to kill his pregnant girlfriend - a hairdresser who prosecutors said refused his demand to have an abortion - at her home in Crofton. "I got my early Christmas present," Jodi Torok said after seeing her former boyfriend, Charles Brandon Martin, sentenced to life in prison by an Anne Arundel County judge. "I believe you were willing to snuff both of them out because they were an inconvenience to you," Judge Pamela L. North told Martin, in a reference to Torok and her unborn child, before sentencing him. Prosecutors depicted Martin, 33, as a ruthless would-be killer and alleged two murder plots centered on him. They said another man, Jerold Raymond Burks, shot Torok in October 2008 to work off a $400 drug debt to Martin.

So now that we've made it through one major holiday, with all of its attendant traffic woes, we've got another two staring us in the face. My first advice about holiday travel is: Don't. My backup advice is: Don't try to drive south on Interstate 95. With the traffic on I-95 in Northern Virginia, you'll be lucky to reach Richmond in less time than it took General Grant's army. Last week, this column explored the only even theoretically viable route: U.S. 301 through Southern Maryland.

Maryland energy regulators Thursday ordered the construction of the state's first new natural gas power plant since the state's electric power market was deregulated more than a decade ago. In a decision questioned by other power producers, the Maryland Public Service Commission said it awarded a contract to CPV Maryland LLC to build the new $500 million facility in the Charles County town of Waldorf. The order calls for three of the state's largest publicly regulated power companies, including Baltimore Gas and Electric Co., to buy electricity from the plant.

Michael Halmon, a 49-year-old father of six who drives a United Parcel Service truck, had been alerted months ago by a store clerk that he'd bought a winning ticket, but didn't take the time until recently to actually check what he'd won, according to the lottery. Under lottery rules, winning tickets must be claimed within 182 days of the drawing date.

WALDORF - If automobile traffic were water, Waldorf would be the kink in a garden hose. In this Southern Maryland town, commutes south from Washington become steering-wheel-punching nightmares. Motorists returning from work encounter a four-mile stretch of lights on roads clogged with traffic from countless strip malls and restaurants. Weekend traffic in Waldorf - which is basically one big suburban shopping center more than it is a town - has gotten so bad that some residents simply avoid the roads.

When Good Charlotte released its first album more than a decade ago, few critics saw much of a future for the band. Upbeat, impetuous, sure; but it was mostly seen as a slightly more punk alternative to the boy bands of the moment. And yet the band is now touring to promote its fifth album, "Cardiology," which came out last year. Guitarist Benji Madden, who started the band in Waldorf in Southern Maryland with his brother, Joel, isn't surprised. "We never planned on breaking up. I can't see us doing much else," said Madden.
