Candidates make last push before election  As hours tick away, Cohen and Pantelides keep knocking on doors  NOV. 3, 2013  By SARA BLUMBERG sblumberg@capgazne ws. com  Four days and counting.  After weeks of debates, and endless door-knocking and personal phone calls, Josh Cohen and Mike Pantelides can agree on one thing.  They’ve reached the endgame.  With the Annapolis mayoral elec tion coming on Tuesday, both candidates followed similar paths Satur day as they crisscrossed the city in their final campaign pushes.  There were a few bumps on the way — for Cohen, literal ones.  During the blessing of the rope at Saturday’s Slaughter Across the Water tug of war, a miscom-munication in the countdown sent a piece of pipe swinging, taking out Cohen, his family members standing next to him and some volunteers.

A former reporter for Roll Call, Congressional Quarterly, The Deal and other Capitol Hill-centric publications, Duran moved to Annapolis two years ago but has yet to switch her voter registration from Washington, D C.

Whitewashed metal walls enclosing classrooms rise only three-quarters of the way to the ceiling, and every lecture, discussion and presentation leaks into every nearby class and hallway.  “We try to do things that make the walls look as nice as they can,” said Principal James Todd, pointing to a football poster. “But it’s tough.”  For years, Anne Arundel County school officials have been saying Old Mill is outdated.
