Residency requirements could thwart Timothy Tenne's efforts to get his name on the 2014 ballot
Timothy Tenne has lived in Baltimore County nearly all his life except for the time he spent in the Air Force. The retired Lt. Colonel and commercial airline pilot wants to be Baltimore County Executive but he may need a little help to meet the residency requirements. "There is going to have to be some kind of an opinion from the Attorney General or we're going to need a Charter change," Tenne said speaking of his eligibility. Tenne filed earlier this year and is listed on the Maryland State Board of Elections website as a provisional candidate. "He is provisional until he satisfies his residency requirement of 5 years living in Baltimore County," wrote Katie Brown, director of elections for the Baltimore County Board of Elections. The …

Perry Hall High School football is pushing through a winning season.
Monday, October 15, 2012
Special thanks to Lisa Alluisi, who provided photos and the following football update. Football was definitely in the air Friday. Beautiful clear, crisp fall evening, highlighted with a shooting star across the sky. Eastern Tech was no pushover, they kept Perry Hall out of the end zone the first quarter, yet the Gators kept them to only a field goal. It took Eastern scoring in the second quarter to waken our Gators. Down the field they marched. First Jeremiah Johnson scored on a 35 yard run. On next possession they ran and threw their way down the field with Chris Ricker bulldozing in for quarterback keeper to score. Halftime Gators were up 14 to 9. Third quarter was a drawn out dogfight, back and forth the scores went. John Myers scored …

Actress Shirley Jones cut the ribbon on the revamped Boscov's.
Boscov's wrapped up a weekend of festivities with donations and a ribbon-cutting to mark the re-opening of their store in White Marsh Mall. The 200,000-square-foot department store opened to great fanfare, too, with the help of Perry Hall High School's marching band on Sunday morning.

Robert W. Gladden Jr.'s attorney is challenging investigators' account of the Monday shooting.
The attorney representing Robert W. Gladden Jr.—the 15-year-old accused of shooting another student in Perry Hall High School Monday morning—is challenging investigators' narrative of the attack. George Psoras Jr., whose legal practice is based in Lutherville, claims that Gladden, a sophomore, was bullied and never intended to harm anyone when he brought a gun into the school's cafeteria, The Associated Press reports. Psoras said he believes Gladden shot into the floor, and then shot the gun again accidentally when teachers tried to wrestle it away, according to the report. "The stereotype right now is that we have a Columbine," Psoras told The Associated Press. "It's simply not the case. This is a typical teenager who was just starting …
