A community column in Sunday's Anne Arundel editions of The Sun misspelled the name of Linthicum-Shipley Improvement Association Vice President Gerald Starr.
The Sun regrets the error.
CHECK IT OUT. Linthicum has a Web site. Steve Payor, a Linthicum resident who was active in the community in the '70s, brought his son-in-law, Rick Forgo, now of Linthicum, to Wednesday's meeting of the Linthicum-Shipley Improvement Association. Forgo, a Web page designer, presented his site, www.linthicumonline.com, and asked that people visit the site and send him ideas about what services should be available.
At its last general membership meeting before adjourning for the summer, the association also elected directors and officers for the year. The new officers are Susan March, president; Gerald Staff, vice president; Bill Mueller, treasurer; and Nancy Phelps, secretary.
Re-elected directors are Mike Daniel, police liaison; Paul DiBlasi, membership director; Tom Holland, airport director; Ted Sophocleus, planning director; Glen Haller, legislative liaison; and Marge Smith, director of environment and community beautification.
I look forward to reading "Will's World" in each association newsletter. Penned by director Will Hubbard, the columns are kindly, wisdom-packed commentaries about life. And sometimes they even rhyme. Here's a one-sentence sampler in Hubbard's neighborly wish for this summer: "When our summer comes to an end, I hope that you will have attended at least one 'Concert in the Park' with a friend."
By the way, the first concert of the season will be presented by the Barry Dove Jazz Quartet at 6 p.m. July 5. Scheduled most Sundays throughout the summer, the concerts are free and open to all, at Linthicum Park on Benton Avenue. Information: Jo Barker, 410-859-3308.
Those attending Wednesday's meeting also heard Frances Phillips, health officer from the Anne Arundel County Health Department, and Maj. Dale Irwin of the Anne Arundel County Police Department, speak and answer questions about the county drug-intervention program.
Information about substance abuse treatment for adolescents or adults: 410-222-7265 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays.
If you'd like the Health Department to provide drug prevention education and training to your community group, call 410-222-6179.
Recently, the association rallied to support the Andover Equestrian Center and the Olde Brooklyn Park Middle School building.
If you are interested, membership director Paul DiBlasi can be reached at 410-859-5356.
