The new plan eliminates office space and adds 150 more parking spaces to a public garage at a cost of an additional $2.5 million.
The Baltimore County Revenue Authority unanimously approved an amended lease agreement that will allow it to build a larger garage for the proposed Towson Circle III project. The five-member board voted today to add 150 spaces to what had been a planned 712-space garage for the theater and restaurant complex slated to be built on Joppa Road adjacent to the Towson Town Center. A second amendment, also unanimously approved, will allow the authority to seek taxable bonds to finance the project instead of the tax-fee bonds that had been planned. Parking rates and private use requirements for the garage would not meet the requirements necessary to use tax-free bonds for the project, according to documents prepared by the authority. The …

Adam Riess, a Johns Hopkins astrophysicist, was honored for a 1998 discovery that the universe is expanding at a faster rate. He shares the prize with two other scientists.
It was early Tuesday morning and Adam Riess had already awoken to the sounds of his 10-month-old son stirring in his Stoneleigh home. And then the phone rang. The clock read 5:36 a.m. “It's famous, it's like a 15 minute window,” Riess said. “Either someone was pulling my leg or this is 'The Call.'” It was no prank. The call was from Stockholm. Riess, an astrophysicist, and two colleagues were awarded the 2011 Nobel Prize in physics on Tuesday for a 1998 discovery that the universe’s expansion is accelerating. Riess, a Johns Hopkins University professor in physics and astronomy, was recognized "for the discovery of the accelerating expansion of the Universe through observations of distant supernovae," according to a press release from the …

When the Baltimore Hebrew Congregation organized its first Rosh Hashanah Under the Stars event five years ago, it didn’t expect it to be the success that it was. “We expected 500 people, and got nearly 2,000,” event chairwoman Jessica Normington said. “Last year we had over 6,000.” The congregation anticipates an equally successful turnout during the fifth annual Rosh Hashanah Under the Stars on Wednesday at Oregon Ridge Park in Cockeysville. The free event gathers Jewish community members for family services the night before the Jewish New Year. The park will open at 4:30 p.m., when families can picnic on the grass to a performance by the Peabody Ragtime Ensemble. This will be followed by a service in both English and Hebrew led by …

Baltimore County will add one camera to original 15 and place it outside Perry Hall High School.
Baltimore County will move three speed cameras to new locations and install a new one at Perry Hall High School after the first of the year. As first reported on Patch, county Police Chief Jim Johnson said a review of the original 15 cameras, installed just over a year ago, was recently completed. "I've been looking at the current 15 camera sites and I'm making recommendations as to whether or not some of the cameras should be moved to other locations," Johnson said in an interview last Wednesday. He added that "there are a few sites that could be changed." Johnson declined during that interview to discuss which new locations would receive the cameras. Cameras will be placed at the following locations: Three other cameras that were part of…
