When County Executive John R. Leopold appears in court this week to face allega  tions he misused police officers assigned to protect him, he’ll be the first sitting Arundel executive to stand trial on criminal charges.  Yet some expect it to be business as usual at the Arundel Center, even as Leopold’s trial plays out in Circuit Court during the second half of the month. Though Leopold, a Republican, was indicted on charges of misconduct and misappropriation last March, the cir  LEOPOLD  cumstances that led to the allegations began much earlier, County Councilman Jamie Benoit said.  “I don’t know that morale is much different than it was a year ago,” said Benoit, a Crownsville Democrat. He added: ‘‘Certainly there are administrative initiatives that I view in a very different light than I did a year ago.”  Councilman John Grasso said he doesn’t expect the trial to have much of an effect on the county government’s daily operations.

The investigation follows an aggressive educational campaign launched by the department to warn business owners who sell the designer drug commonly called “spice.” The substance is frequently found at gas stations  and sold as incense.  “Our agency has been heavily involved in educating area businesses about the legislation enacted by Congress last July,” police spokesman Justin Mulcahy said.  The police Special Enforcement Unit has been compiling a list of places that carry spice. Police plan to send a letter to the  competent department heads in place, the county runs itself.  As for the rest of the county employees, they probably won’t be thinking much about the proceedings, he said.  “They don’t get up in the morning and think, ‘Is he guilty or not?’ They’re drawing a paycheck,” said Grasso, a Glen Bumie Republican who has announced his candidacy for county executive in 2014. “Constituents — it might have an effect on what they think of the county government.”  (See TRIAL, Page A14)  Flu may be stabilizing even as cases mount  By TINA REED Staff Writer  The flu has been infecting the nation early this year — swamping emergency departments and primary care offices, and making everyone downright miserable.  Unfortunately, health providers say, Anne Arundel County hasn’t been immune.  “We don’t know what the trajectory is. No one knows that,” said Mary Glance,  Anne Arundel Medical Center staff epidemiologist and an internist with Annapolis Internal Medicine. “I think we’ll see higher numbers of people getting this before it gets better. We need to be prepared for that.”  But there may be early signs the number of flu cases is stabilizing, said Linda Jo-sephson, the county’s program manager for  • National scramble for vaccine as supplies dwindle, Page All.  owners, explaining the potential side effects of using the product.
