Daryl Jones, who returned to the County Council last week after a nearly two year legal battle, said repealing the fee is one of his top priorities. He said the annual fee — $85 for most property owners — is not being applied correctly.  His comments were encouraging to some of the legislation’s opponents, while others said there’s still probably not enough desire on the council to reverse it.  “I’m hopeful something will hap  pen, but I’m not optimistic,” said Sen. Bryan Simonaire, R Pasadena.  He and Del. Steve Schuh, R-Gibson Island, have been leading the push for the county to repeal the fee, often called the “rain tax” by opponents. Last month, the two pledged to introduce legislation to exempt Anne Arundel from the list of 10 jurisdictions included in a state funding requirement for stormwater remediation.  Pete Smith, who took Jones’ seat in January 2012, originally voted  against the stormwater fee when the council passed it in April. When Jones was sent to a South Carolina prison to serve time for failing to file a tax return, Smith was selected to finish his council term.  Smith had concerns about the fee’s timing. But after County Executive Laura Neuman vetoed the initial bill enacting the fee, Smith voted as part of a supermajority to overturn the veto, 5-2, after speak ing with constituents.  “He’s going to have to change the mind of someone else, and I don’t think Daryl has enough votes in place,” Simonaire said. “I think it’s good that it’s out and there’s discussion.”  Jones, a Severn Democrat, was removed from his District 1 seat a week before he was to report to prison to serve five months for tax violations. He did not return calls seeking comment.

Earlier this year, the academy commissioned Jessup-based McDonald Golf Inc. to review a golf course restoration plan that had been completed in 2007. McDonald presented a revised plan to academy officials two weeks ago, said Chet Gladchuk, the academy’s athletic director.  A 44 page plan proposes $4.6 million in improvements to the golf course on the Broadneck Peninsula and nearly $1.9 million in improvements to practice areas. A timeline for construction proposes closing the course from early July 2014 through October 2014.  Gladchuk called the plan a “fairly speculative vision.” Part of the academy’s 2020 Strategic Plan was to take a look at upgrades to the golf course and McDonald’s plan did just that, he said.

Family, friends remember Kellie Thompson Shiley a year after tragic death  5K, Family Run organized to pay tribute  By BILL WAGNER  bwagner@capgaznews.com   Kellie Thompson Shiley had an unforgettable sense of humor. Nicole Smollon remembers a friend who made everyone laugh by tagging members of the University of North Carolina women’s lacrosse team with funny nicknames.  “Kellie was just so fun to be around. She could be absolutely hilarious at times," said Smollon, whose last name  was Foran when she played with Thompson at St. Mary’s High School and UNC.  Thompson Shiley died unexpectedly in July 2012 due to complications from childbirth. To honor her, former teammates from Carolina created the Kellie Thompson Shiley Award while family and friends have launched an annual running event, which will be held Sunday morning on Kent Island.  “It was devastating to lose Kellie, and it still doesn’t seem real or make any sense,” Smollon said. “Kellie was so strong, so healthy. She was such a force of nature and had so much more  to give. For all of those that knew her, this has been a difficult thing to come to grips with.”  Tiffany Hoffman met Thompson Shiley in first grade at St. Mary’s Elementary School in Annapolis and was amazed at her will and determination.  “Kellie was driven to succeed in every single thing she touched," said Hoffman, whose maiden name is Schummer. “Whether it was lacrosse, her work, her family, her friends —-she put 100 percent heart and soul into everything she did.”  (See SHILEY, Page A16)  Former St. Mary’s High School star Kellie Thompson Shiley with her husband and their first child.
