Question of the Day
Battlefield center a big draw
The new visitor’s center at the Monocacy National Battlefield is a bigger attraction than its predecessor.
Park officials say the number of visitors has nearly doubled in the six months since the facility opened. They also say the attractions of the new building are its location, roominess and interactive displays.
Venue change denied in crash
A Queen Anne’s County judge denied a request to move the trial of the man charged in the traffic accident that killed a county school official.
An attorney representing Daniel Savage, 24, argued unsuccessfully Tuesday that it would be impossible to find an impartial jury inside the county.
Mr. Savage is charged with vehicular manslaughter in the death of John Andrews, 71, a vice principal at Queen Anne’s County High School. Mr. Andrews was killed Aug. 23 in Centreville when his car was struck by a stolen sport utility vehicle that state police say was being driven by Mr. Savage. Authorities say Mr. Savage was fleeing police and ran a red light.
