Good morning, it’s Friday, October 15th  2021 this is Liz Frenaye and THIS is your Eye On Annapolis Daily News Brief.
Ladies and gentlemen, I’m officially outta here- so until the next time.  But first, we have some news to share, so let’s get into it, shall we?
Thursday at approximately 1pm, a man was shot on Pleasant Street and transported to an area hospital where he died from his injuries. This shooting happened in broad daylight, and marks the 5th homicide of the year for Annapolis. Detectives are investigating this incident, and asking anyone with information to call 410-260-3439.
On October 14, 2021, at approximately 5:25 a.m. officers responded for an assault in the 2100 block of Priest Bridge Drive in Crofton. When officers arrived they located an adult male victim with a stab wound to his torso. The investigation revealed the victim was involved in a physical altercation with the suspect who produced a pocket knife and stabbed the victim. The victim was transported to an area hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. A knife was recovered from the suspect. This investigation is ongoing and Western District detectives ask anyone with information to contact the Western District Detective Unit at 410-222-6155 or the Tip Line at 410-222-4700.
As we mentioned on Wednesday, the Board of Education sent County Executive Pitman the requested budget to raise bus driver wages. Pittman released the following statement: “I received the Board’s supplemental budget request yesterday to fund this plan, and began reviewing it with my team. While we conduct that review, I have instructed our legislative staff to move forward with an emergency supplemental budget bill at Monday’s County Council meeting.
We will do our due diligence and work with the Council to make sure the supplemental budget request is an efficient, fiscally responsible package that will accomplish our goal – getting our kids to school, on time, every day.
I want to thank the Board of Education and AACPS leadership for moving quickly this past week to finalize and present this proposal. I look forward to working with our County Council members in the coming weeks to review and pass this legislation.”   sounds like they may take some time to get it done now that the ball is in their court.
And, another Navy loss. Last night Memphis defeated Navy with a score of 17-35. The next Navy game will be at home and is against Cincinnati. The game will be on October 23rd and is at noon, rather than the usually scheduled 330pm games. Tickets are available at navysports.com
