Improvement association to discuss decking downtown in seasonal banners GLEN BURNIE


Decorative banners will be on the agenda when the Glen Burnie Improvement Association meets tomorrow night.

Association members are to discuss buying street banners to decorate the downtown area.

The association has one set of 16 vertical banners advertising its carnival, which opens at the end of this month.

However, the group is considering buying new seasonal banners to hang along Crain Highway and Baltimore-Annapolis Boulevard, said GBIA president Muriel Carter. In addition to the carnival banners, there would be spring, fall and winter holiday banners.

Last winter, the organization hung the county's wreaths and strung lights on the tree at Logo Park.

Many people said they liked the festive appearance and urged the GBIA to do more.

The meeting starts at 8 p.m. at the association's building on South Crain Highway near First Avenue.

Wonder Bread bakery held up at gunpoint

A man armed with a handgun robbed a baking company in Glen Burnie of an undetermined amount of cash Friday, county police said.

Police said the man "cased" the Continental Baking Co., in the 7100 block of E. Furnace Branch Road, early in the day, then returned about 10:45 a.m. and held up the clerk at gunpoint.

The man sped off from the bakery -- which makes Wonder Bread -- in a white, late-model Dodge Shadow.

Highway agency to add left-turn signal

The State Highway Administration will add a left-turn signal near Glen Burnie High School to help control increased traffic there.

The signal will be for left turns from Baltimore-Annapolis Boulevard onto Amberly Road at the traffic light there.

The work, which will cost about $2,000, will be done by mid-July, said Valerie Burnette, SHA spokeswoman.
