You can tell when you’re getting older when you start complaining about the weather.. well I am old. Yesterday– cold, then beautiful for a hot minute, and then downright raw toward the end. Let’s just pick a season and get into it! OK, we have some news today so let’s get into it, shall we?
Some workplace violence in Linthicum. On Friday, a 23-year-old woman from Randallstown was working in the Hardee’s fast food restaurant and according to police she had had enough bullying from her manager. So she stabbed her. She left the restaurant and police found her walking away and they arrested her without incident. She has been charged with attempted second-degree murder, assault, reckless endangerment, and carrying a concealed weapon.
Tonight at Hella’s Restaurant and Lounge will be hosting a Republican Central Committee Event. Nothing too earth-shattering there. The event is called Champions for Children and the guest speaker is a representative of the Alliance Defending Freedom. And here is what the Southern Poverty Law Center says about them. “Founded by some 30 leaders of the Christian Right, the Alliance Defending Freedom is a legal advocacy and training group that has supported the recriminalization of sexual acts between consenting LGBTQ adults in the U.S. and criminalization abroad; has defended state-sanctioned sterilization of trans people abroad; has contended that LGBTQ people are more likely to engage in pedophilia; and claims that a “homosexual agenda” will destroy Christianity and society.” So there’s that. And as would be expected there are quite a few groups upset including Annapolis Pride and other advocacy organizations. Hella’s did confirm that they were hosting the event and it was still planned. I have not heard of any protests.
If you are an organization or small business and want to get your message out, you can always advertise here…joking…sort of… but the PRSA Chesapeake Chapter will be hosting a PR Bazaar on May 11th. This is a continuation of the program created by Wendi Winters back in 2003 to bring all sorts of media and PR folks in and let them speak to the organizations and businesses about how to get your messages out. Tickets are limited and available at prsachesapeake.com
