Dog kennel zoning exception on county panel's agenda
A Pasadena family, cited in March for operating a dog kennel without the proper zoning, is seeking special-exception approval from the county Office of Administrative Hearings.
Richard and Beverly Fleig, residents of the Pinehurst-on-the-Bodkin community, want approval for a facility with five dog runs in the 8100 block of Riverside Drive. The 9,018-square-foot lot is bordered by woods and Bodkin Creek.
The county Office of Planning and Zoning cited Mr. Fleig with a zoning violation on March 3, said Kevin Dooley, county planning analyst. A special exception is required if someone wants to keep more than four dogs in certain residential districts, he said.
The Fleigs' request is to be heard at 9 a.m., May 13 in the County Council chambers at the Arundel Center in Annapolis.
Information: county Office of Planning and Zoning at 222-7430.
Woman leaps from car, is critically injured
A Baltimore woman was in critical condition yesterday at Maryland Shock Trauma Center after she jumped from a moving car on Pinehurst Drive early Sunday.
According to the police report, officers found Cindy Lou Claudy, 29, laying in the middle of the road and covered with blood about 2:45 a.m.
A woman with her told the officers that she and Ms. Claudy had been drinking at a local bar and she was driving Ms. Claudy home when Ms. Claudy told her she wanted to know what it felt like when her brother was hit by a car and killed.
She opened the door of the car and either jumped or fell out despite attempts by the woman to stop the car and hold her inside, the police report said.
Ms. Claudy landed face down on the pavement and was flown to Maryland Shock Center with several factures to her face and skull.
