Here's a look at some of the top stories from Severna Park Patch this week. To read more of any story, just click on the link.

1. Risking It All for Split Ends
Split Ends Salon co-owner Jennifer Hardison left her 9-to-5 job working PR for the Orioles in 2000, and decided to open a hair salon with her sister—something she had no background doing.

Twelve years later, Split Ends is one of the most popular hair salons in Severna Park.

2. Olde Tyme Barber Shop Showcases Community Achievement
You don’t need to talk to Olde Tyme Barber Shop owner Brian Mears to know how much he cares for his customers and the kids in Severna Park—it is apparent on the walls.

The local barbershop, which begins its 16th year in business on Nov. 1, recently remodeled to include hundreds of photos featuring more than 300 local athletes.

3. Field Hockey: Taking it One Game at a Time
At the end of the season last year, the Severna Park field hockey team stood on the field at Washington College in Chestertown, MD, as state champions. Entering post-season play this year, the team is just looking to take it one game at a time.

4. Update: Trial Date Set in Family Violence Incident
James Arthur Zito, the 21-year-old Millersville man who allegedly stabbed his mother and then fled the home, will go to trial on Jan. 22.

5. BGE Preparing for Hurricane Sandy
Emergency services and BGE are closely monitoring the path of Hurricane Sandy as it nears the East Coast.

Sandy made landfall Thursday in Cuba. Its path could veer toward the East Coast, landing anywhere from New York to Maryland, or it could fade away into the North Atlantic, meteorologists said.
