Good morning, it is Tuesday, February 23rd, 2021 and THIS is your Eye On Annapolis Daily News Brief.
Today, we have a bunch of COVID quick hits. Yesterday, the State was set to begin taking appointments online for the new Mass Vaccination Site at M&T Bank Stadium. Just a quick gander around the Twitterverse and it seems that the website was not working for most. Some folks tried the phone system, but gave up after estimated hold times exceeded an hour. If you want to try… coronavirus.maryland.gov/pages/vaccine. or 855-MD-GOVAX
Acting Health Secretary told Senators yesterday that the State will design and roll out a centralized registration system for the vaccine sometime in March. I am not sure why this was not handled way earlier.
In better news, the numbers for the state and county all are tending in a better direction. Hospitalizations statewide are under 1000, the case rate is at 13 and the state has poked more than a million arms with the vaccine.
Following up on the story we reported yesterday on the suspicious death in Brooklyn Park. Police have identified a person of interest and believe there was an altercation and the deceased man had attacked the suspect who was defending himself and ultimately caused the fatal injuries. It appears from the Medical Examiner that it was a stabbing. Police have not arrested anyone and are having pow wows with the State’s Attorney’s office to see if charges will be filed against this person of interest.
I am not sure how they will do this, but it is always an interesting time. The Key School will be presenting the 18th Annual Annapolis Book Festival on April 24th and 25th. And it will be virtual. They have nearly 40 authors already lined up. Not sure if it will be recorded so put the dates on the calendar and as we know more, we’ll be sure to let you know.
And finally, in another “I’m not sure how they will do this” moment.. Monica Alvarado. We dropped a bonus pod last night about Monica’s vision and birthing of Feed Anne Arundel. If you want to hear an inspiring story– listen to it and learn how she has been preparing 438 meals a day for the past year to help our Anne Arundel neighbors.
And speaking of podcasts, we are rolling with the Local Business Spotlight and you want to stay tuned on Saturdays for these.. Frances Marketing Group, One Physical Therapy Fitness and Wellness, Woodcraft Artisans, Quantum Sails, Flag House Inn, Soloday Marketing, Maryland Federation of Art and many more. If you know a business that wants to tell their story–get in touch with me…or have them get in touch…and we’ll make it happen!
And really finally now…. when you hear a podcast you enjoyed–this one, maybe the Annapolis Podcast, The Duckpin, The Loud Women’s Club, or The Conduit Street Podcast.. throw us and then a bone by sharing it. It’s usually pretty easy and it really helps spread the word!
OK that’s REALLY it. 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 it really is a big help!
And it is every day, George Young from DCMDVA Weather is here with your locally forecast weather report. All that gets underway in just one minute after we hear from Rick Peters from Solar Energy Services!
