DI City housing agency may face federal takeover But some say deficiencies have been known about for years By EARL KELLY Staff Writer The chairman of the board that oversee# the city Housing Authority announced last week that he had uncovered documents from last year that threaten a federal government takeover of the agency because of deficiencies in the condition of its structures. But some officials in charge at the time say the “discovery” is nothing new. and the housing authority has known about the deficiencies in public housing — and has been working with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development to correct them — for years. Central to the discussion is a letter from HUD dated Oct. 14. 2009 In the letter, a HUD official warns that the housing authority is falling short of an earlier memorandum of agreement that listed improvements that needed to be made The letter cautions that unless conditions improve, HUD could “transfer control of all or part of the (housing authority’s) daily operations to a desig nated receivership.” The unfavorable HUD report does not allege any wrongdoing, but merely states that the condition of some properties is not (See HOUSING, Page A6) Authors relate story of ‘Deadly Charm’New book focuses on convicted county killer By SHANTE^ WOODARDS Staff Writer Patrick McCullough’s final act was fatally shooting his girlfriend and himself nearly a decade ago, ending a life spent in and out of prison and mental institutions. Now the crimes he committed in Anne Arundel and Charles counties in the 1980s and 1990s are being brought to the forefront in a new book. In “Deadly Charm: The Story of a Deaf Serial Killer,” writers McCay and Marie Vernon describe McCullough as someone who knew how to use his difficult life and disability to his advantage. It took the husband-and-wife team about four years to conduct research for the book, which included reviewing old police reports, newspaper articles and court testimony. McCullough’s remaining family — a sister — declined to be interviewed for the book, as did the relatives of Randi Marie Lawrence, the Waldorf woman he killed in 2001. McCullough also has a brother who lives in Alaska. “(We) got a strong sense of how much charm he had, and how he knew how to use his assets, including his good looks and strong physical body to impress people and draw people to him,” Marie Vernon said, speaking from the couple’s home in St. Augustine, Fla.

They agreed to allow our reporter to observe their behavior as long as they were not identified in the article. By ELISABETH HULETTE Staff Writer By 2 p m. Tuesday, the beer pong game was already in full swing The players had recently graduated from an Anne Arundel County high school. No sooner had they turned their tassels than they made a beeline for Ocean City to partake in that final fling of high school known statewide as “senior week.” Now, giddily under the influence and entombed in a sweat-scented condo, they put their newfound freedom to good use by competitively drinking massive volumes of cheap beer. “Here’s senior week: You wake up at, like, ll, go to the beach and tan,” said one boy, shoeless, shirtless and grinning. “You get drunk In the afternoon, pass out for a little bit. Then you go out and go hard.” Going hard means drinking, possibly doing drugs and often trying (See SENIORS, Page AIS) By Elisabeth Hulette — The Capitol Red cups and beer cans cover a table used for many games of beer pong In an Ocean City condominium occupied by recent high school graduates last week.

The United States Navy Veterans Association, the subject of an intensive investigation published in March by the St. Petersburg Times with questions about lobbying, fundraising and membership, also states on its website that 34 midshipmen are voting mem hers of the Maryland chapter. The Times was unable to verify many of the claims of the association, which the newspaper found was formed in Tampa, Fla., and granted tax-exempt status in 2002. Although the group said it has almost 67,000 members and annual income of more than $22 million, the newspaper could only (See GROUP, Page A8) ;
