Greenwell, 28, of Fort Wayne, was preliminarily charged with armed robbery for the incident at the $727 million asset credit union.

  • LINTHICUM, Md. (8/2/13)--SECU, based in Linthicum, Md., will pay $4.75 million during the next 10 years to have the name SECU Arena placed on Towson University's new basketball facility. SECU will pay the university $475,000 annually, the $2.57 billion asset credit union said in a press conference Thursday to announce the deal.

The donation purchased nearly a dozen new in-reach radio units for the Mt. Hood Search and Rescue Council. The volunteers trained on the new devices on Monday. The radios use the satellite network, which means the volunteers don't have to rely on cell coverage or any other infrastructure. Rural areas have very little or no infrastructure. The radios also give the command base the ability to direct a rescue team to a missing person during white-out conditions ( July 30) ...
