I can only hope that in the coming months the owners will announce that there will be brand name children's, men's and women's clothing stores coming to the center.
Joshua Paul Antlitz, 29, of the 600 block of Law Street and the 500 block of Cider Press Loop in Joppa, was arrested Friday on a bench warrant in a case in which he was charged with driving while his license was suspended, driving with a suspended registration, failure to display his license and speeding.
