MD NEW AGE FOR CADE After 20 years in the the Severna Park Republican has been given a powerful role that is traditionally Democratic ByTODDSPANGLER Staff Writer A bureaucrat's worst nightmare could come true in a Budget and Taxation subcommittee hearing if he finds himself on the wrong side of cantankerous Sen John A.

But the respite was only with expecting more of bone-chilling winds that have put freeze on outside activities. Today's temperatures were a heat wave compared-to when the low dipped to 5 degrees 3 degrees off a record and the wind chill made it feel like minus you felt you had reason to feel said Amet a National Weather Service forecaster at Baltimore- Washington International Airport. It was so cold that county firefighters were forced to bring buses along to calls for first time this winter. _The buses give firefighters a heated place to hide from the wind. One was used at a blaze that demolished a story farmhouse in Deale early yesterday. The ultra-frigid conditions will return tomorrow with 20-25 mph gusts making temperatures in the low 20s seem like Mr. Figueroa said. It will warm up by but some snow showers should hit the area Thursday night into Friday. There will be little Mr. Figueroa said. The good news in all of this is that no one was treated for exposure yesterday or this morning in emergency rooms at Anne Arundel Medical Center or North Arundel Hospital. The cold was hard on cars. The mid-Atlantic Division of AAA this morning received 500 calls to jump-start spokesman Sharon Perry said. The average for an entire winter day is just 700. The total yesterday reached almost equalling last year's cold she said. And while gas and electric consumption was at its highest level of the it was nowhere near last year's record- setting peaks when rolling blackouts were implemented to reduce said Kathleen spokesman for Balti- more Gas and Electric Co. Electric usage was expected to peak at about megawatts at 9 this morning. Gas usage peaked at about decatherm-hours yesterday. No figures were available for Ms. Nolan said. The set last Jan. were megawatts for electric and decatherm-hours for gas. Another positive omen was that some plumbers were fielding fewer calls to fix frozen pipes during this cold snap than last year I think people have gotten said Doug Branzell of Branzell Plumbing in Annapolis. Page Measure gives governor final say on school board picks By TODD SPANGLER Staff Writer Bills were introduced last night in the General Assembly reforming the county school board selection process and allowing retail of judges soft on crime issues close to County Executive John G. Gary's campaign. But the school board introduced by Del. Michael wasn't exactly what Mr. Gary wanted. Instead of giving the county executive author- ity to appoint school board theg measure would establish a school board nomi- nating commission and leave the authority to pick board members with the governor. Another General Assembly bill allows recall of 'soft' judges Mr. during his campaign last pledged to push for an executive-appointed school board with recall powers granted to the County Council. Del. Victoria L. intro- duced the judicial recall measure. But Ms. who won her first election in Novem- did not hold out much hope of success for the bill. these things take a lot of she said. may take four It may take more years. I want to get out in front on Recall of lenient judges was a significant issue in Mrs. Schade's campaign as well Mr. Gary's. Throughout the1 election angry resi- dents made clear their belief that criminals were being let off easy by judges. aim is to give the people the ability to do it Mrs. Schade said. we never use it because we have great that's The measure would allow recall of a District or Circuit court judge through a petition sent to the secretary of state and signed by at least 3 percent of voters who cast ballots in the previous gubernatorial election in the area served by the The petition would contain a statement alleg- ing or breach of the judge's oath of The allegations could not be questioned in any legal review process. Voters would be asked in the next election if they wanted to recall the judge. The measure- faces almost certain defeat given that House Speaker Casper R. referred it to the Rules where bills usually die unceremonious deaths. But Mr. Taylor said last night that all measures going to the committee will be consid- ered and then passed on to other standing committees for full-blown hearings and a vote.

They were among a crew of seven aboard a B-25 bomber that was shot down on Feb. while trying to cripple a railroad through the Adige River valley. Mr. Pisoni was 7 and was called by family and friends. He was having lunch in a second-story room when he saw each member of the crew bail out and each parachute open. Many years while examining U.S. Mr. Pisoni confirmed that the plane went down at just as he was eating his meal From when Allied bombing began in until the end of the he never saw another plane destroyed.
