The crowded food court of the Westfield Annapolis mall turned into a scene of panic last night as a gunfight broke out and wounded three people - including an off-duty Secret Service agent who tried to stop the shooting. The gunbattle erupted in an area of the upscale mall frequented by teenagers and spurred panic among hundreds of patrons, who fled screaming to escape what several witnesses said were at least 10 gunshots. Anne Arundel County police said a group of youths surrounded a young man about 7:15 p.m. and began hitting him just inside the food court entrance.

The igloo-like snow globe in the middle of the Annapolis mall caught the eye of James Soni. The three-year-old darted inside, pulling his mother and father along. The family, told they could dress up and appear in a short, slow-motion video, was filmed in two takes tossing snowballs in the air, to the delight of their son. The gigantic globe, which doubles as a mini production studio, is clearly the centerpiece of Google's new retail venture: Temporary shops set up in six locations nationwide, including Westfield Annapolis mall.

When Arundel Mills was proposed in the late 1990s, it was to be one of the largest malls on the East Coast. In order to win local support, the Mills Corporation shrank the proposed size of the mall and offered to reconfigure roads, add a community room, and provide land for Anne Arundel Community College. With those concessions by the Mills Corporation, the project received local support. Slot machines were never proposed or even imagined in the project. Since the mall's opening in 2000, the area has seen an explosion of residential development.

Environmentalists and government officials dedicated a stormwater pollution control project near Annapolis on Wednesday that they say is an example of what can be done to improve the health of the Chesapeake Bay. The $900,000 project was paid for by state and federal grants, but is the type of project that could be funded by Anne Arundel County's new stormwater fee, said Severn Riverkeeper Fred Kelly, who spearheaded the project. The project re-engineered a stormwater holding pond and 1,700 linear feet of Cabin Branch, a stream that flows from the intersection of Bestgate Road and Generals Highway near the Westfield Annapolis mall out to Saltworks Creek on the Severn River.
