Cooper Beeson exceeded his goal in raising money for the homeless across Baltimore County.
Lutherville boy Cooper Beeson smashed his goal of raising $1,000 for Baltimore County's homeless population over the weekend with his adorable 8-year-old smile and refreshing lemonade.

The governor's redistricting advisory committee recommended that the redistricting line be drawn at Greenspring Drive, through the Country Club Park community. Residents living north of the boundary would be shifted into the 11th District—which is represented by state legislators Sen.
