Good morning, it is Tuesday, April 19th, 2022 and THIS is your Eye On Annapolis Daily News Brief.
Did you get your taxes in? And remember the Maryland ones are not due until July! OK, enough of that, let’s get into the news, shall we?
On Sunday morning, Anne Arundel County Police responded to a shooting at the Festival at Riva in Annapolis. A man was a passenger in a taxi cab exiting the shopping center at Riva Road after midnight when shots rang out and hit the cab and the 22-year-old passenger. The cabbie was not injured and he immediately took his passenger to the Anne Arundel Medical Center where he was treated for non-life-threatening injuries. Police are asking if anyone heard or saw anything to contact them at 410-222-1960.
Yesterday, M-DOT released some encouraging, yet sobering figures. Most of the US saw an increase in traffic fatalities over the past year, but Maryland saw a reduction. Not a huge reduction, but a reduction nonetheless. It was 3% which equates to 557 fatalities on our roadways in 2021. By far, the most common cause of these fatal accidents is distracted driving and M-DOT reiterates, put the phone down. Their goal has not changed, they are working towards zero deaths and you can find out more, along with many more statistics at zerodeathsmd.gov
It is budget time for the City and the County. While the city is having interminably long meetings televised on YouTube, the County just launched a very cool budgeting tool for the public to see where the money is coming from and where it is going. You want to go to aacounty.org/budde. and BuDDE is an acronym for Budget and Data Development Explorer. The COunty is releasing this in advance of upcoming budget town halls so folks will be able to have the facts and figures when they attend–and you really ought to attend once they are announced.
And if BoCa Flavor gets a few more votes than the second-place company, THEIR budget will need to be adjusted to the tune of $60,000. The local small spice company in Odenton is a finalist in the Barclay’s Bank Small Business Big Wins Award. The owners, Suzanne Delica and Jelece Morris bring the flavors of their home countries–Jamaica and Haiti to kitchens everywhere. BoCa is short for Bold Caribbean flavor. Starting in the midst of the pandemic, the flavors took off. So congrats and good luck to BoCa Flavors!
And finally, it’s ticket Tuesday from Rams Head On Stage. But we’re sweetening the pot with a pair of tickets to the Bay Bridge Boat Show this weekend. I played trivia last night so I am tired..make it simple. Send me an email or a DM on Twitter and tell me if you would rather have the boat show tickets or two to see Livingston Taylor at Rams Head On Stage on May 4th–that’s Star Wars Day! I’ll select some winners tonight. And make sure you check out all the other great shows coming up at Ram Head at RamsHeadOnStage.com.
