The dry weather helped contribute to the annual rash of brush said county Fire Department Frank Stokes. Since firefighters respond- ed to 63 separate brush many of them small according to department reports. So the number of such biases is about normal for this time of said.

County growth rate up Income population rise By DEBRA VIADERQ Buiineit Writer The population of Anne Arundel County broke for the firit time last year. And more of them are rich than ever before. Those conclusions come from statistics compiled by Alexander D. senior plan- ner and demographer with the county Office of Planning and Zoning. Statisticians such as Speer tend to take a second look at what the numbers say about us during the first quarter of the year. A glance at Spear's newest estimates and the state Department of Economic and Com- munity Development's newly revised Maryland Statistical Abstract reveals these characteris- tics about tin people who live and work in the Speer figured that fce population broke the mark last August.
