The Broadneck grad will be running again in the New York indoor track meet.
The 106th Millrose Games in New York City's Armory is one of the largest indoor track meets in the country. Broadneck's Olympic running sensation Matthew Centrowitz recently told Supersport.com that he's prepared and confident about the upcoming meet. The Millrose Games begin Feb. 16 in New York. According to Runnersworld, Centrowitz has told race organizers that he wants to beat the current mile run record, set by Bernard Lagat in 2005, of 3:52.87.

Anne Arundel County Executive John R. Leopold could be permanently removed from office by a county council vote Wednesday.
The Anne Arundel County Council will meet in an emergency session Wednesday afternoon to introduce legislation that would declare a vacancy in the county executive's office.

Chief Administrative Officer John Hammond is now serving as acting Anne Arundel county executive as a result of the suspension of Leopold from his duties. The Maryland Constitution provides for suspension of an elected official upon a …

Improvements to College Parkway are proposed in association with the new neighborhood being built.
A sign has been posted for a new residential development along Jones Station Road in Arnold. Canterbury Village, a D.R. Horton, development, will consist of 30 single-family lots and 100 townhome lots, just off of Jones Station Road. In July, Horton purchased land for two approved developments—Millstone Village in Severn, a 116-lot development between Reece Road and Loving Road, and Canterbury Village. It was the largest land transaction in Anne Arundel County in 2012. According to the Hogan Company, Canterbury Village is one of two developments in Broadneck that were on hold due to school capacity issues. An eight classroom addition to Broadneck High School in 2010 allowed the project to continue through the subdivision approval process. …
Special Olympics Maryland spokeswoman Linda Ellingsworth said fundraising crossed the $2 million threshold during the Saturday event, and projections were set on $2.8 million in donations this year.
Hundreds of frigid Marylanders plunged into the Chesapeake Bay on Saturday morning for a good cause—more than $2 million was raised for Special Olympics Maryland. More than 12,000 people participated in the 17th annual Plungefest at Sandy Point State Park on Saturday. Among the plungers not in the water this year was Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco, according to The Capital. It was the second year running that Flacco opted out of the annual plunging fundraiser. Of course, he's hot on the heels of the Super Bowl, so Marylanders may cut him some slack. This year's plunge was also attended by the Baltimore Ravens caravan, which included Ravens cheerleaders and band members, who serenaded frigid plungers with team fanfare. According to…
