A controversy over color has ignited the Anne Arundel County community of Pasadena. Chesapeake High School has traditionally launched a red, white, and blue theme during this football weekend as a salute to those lost during 9-11. However, the school announced this week that its red, white, and blue theme would be replaced this week with a Hawaiian Beach Out Theme. In a letter to parents this week, the Principal wrote that the move was "simply an effort to avoid the issues we faced as a community last year. It was in no way an attempt to take any side of any argument or align with any philosophy."
"I said, 'No thank you,' and he just kept doing it and I said, 'No thank you.' Then he called me a [expletive] and he started hitting my windshield with his squeegee," she said. Carol claims when she pulled up to Interstate 83 South and North Avenue, a boy cleaning windshields for cash scared her so badly that she almost risked fleeing into fast-moving traffic. "I looked at my sister like, you know, like I might have to run through this light and I didn't know what to do," she said, "I just wanted to get away from him because he was literally standing right next to me yelling at me and that's when I laid on the horn and the police officer turned his lights on." She says from there, a city cop watching the altercation came over to the corner, but stopped short of clearing it.
