Good morning, it is Monday, February 22nd,  2021 and THIS is your Eye On Annapolis Daily News Brief.

I hope you had a fantastic weekend…I cleared the last of the snow off my drive and I have a gut feeling we may be done winter now, but George will have to confirm–he’s up in bit. And hopefully you got a chance to catch the Local Business Spotlight on Saturday with Dr. Ndidi Harley from Health Source of Crofton–after my snow shoveling, I may give her a visit! Anyhow, it is Monday, so let’s get into it!

On Saturday morning the Anne Arundel County Police were called to the 300 block of Church Street in Baltimore…its a Baltimore address but actually in the County … Brooklyn Park. for a male suffering from what they are calling suspicious injuries.  When EMS arrived they tried to save him, but 35-year old Bayron Randolfo Calderon had died.  Police are waiting on the medical examiner’s report, but they are considering this a homicide at this point..the county’s third this year.  Police are asking anyone that may have information to contact them at 410-222-4731 or anonymously at 410-222-4700.

Kudos to Comptroller Peter Franchot. On Tuesday, he said his office was prepared to get the stimulus money out right away. And as of Friday, 98% of the payments had ben processed and deposited in accounts or mailed a check. Check out some of these numbers 266,985 electronic payments totaling $113M and 148,972 paper checks totaling $61.7M  have gone out.  This is all in addition to concurrently processing 160,000 tax returns and issuing $17M in refunds.  And let’s be honest, for those that say government can’t work efficiently–take a look at Franchot’s operation and take notes.

Speaking of tax season..it is that time. And just a reminder  Box 35 when you do your taxes.  Check it off and donate a small portion of your refund to the Chesapeake Bay Trust and DNR’s Wildlife Heritage Fund, and have a part in making our Bay that much more healthy. I do it every year.  AND I have a Bay Plate.

OK, St. Paddy’s Day is two and a half weeks away and this is the big day for bars and restaurants and especially the Irish ones. But, this year will be a bit different due to COVID.  Here is the deal for Galway Bay, Killarney House and Brian Boru in a nutshell. Galway will be on a first come first served basis in the bar and the tent outside..of course capacity limited.  The dining room will be reservations only and you will have a specified time limit to get in, sit down and eat so they can get the next reservation in.  Both Killarney House and Brian Boru will be doing it a bit differently. Same deal for the main restaurant, but for the bar and tent areas, you can reserve a time restricted space– two hours and there is a charge of $10 per person for that. Again, be on time because the clock is ticking.  All three locations will have three live bands playing at each location and they are open from 8am to midnight.  Best bet is to make reservations now as they will fill up.  We have all the details on eyeonannapolis.net or you can go to each of the websites for the restaurants and get all the info. I feel horrible for these guys because this is their day to shine and last year it was pulled from them the night before and this year it is so restricted.  So definitely get out there and support them.

And finally, congrats to Homestead Gardens!  Amidst all this COVID stuff, they found a way to expand and grown. They just acquired Ronny’s Garden World in Smyrna, Delaware to complement their locations in Davidsonville and Severna Park.  Ronny’s has a similar history .. founded in the 1970s and currently being operated by the second generation and has become the go to garden center in Delaware–much like Homestead here in the Greater Baltimore area. Ronny’s had temporarily closed due to COVID and the winter, so Homestead is taking some time to freshen up the place, hire staff and bring in inventory and plan to open up in mid-March.  Not sure if they are going to change the name or not, but Ronny’s is at 5580 Dupont Parkway…because everything in Delaware is named after a DuPont.

OK that wraps up the news for us today.  As always, thank you  for listening and if you are somewhere where you can leave a rating or a review, please do. And make sure you let your friends, family and colleagues know about us.
