Good morning, it is Wednesday, July 5th, 2023, and THIS is your Eye On Annapolis Daily News Brief presented by Annapolis Subaru and the SPCA of Anne Arundel County.

Welcome to the week where no one has any idea what day it really is! Awesome Independence Day for me–Saturday at St. Michaels, and then yesterday kicking off with the always amazing Naturalization Ceremony at the Paca House, a brief cookout, the lame parade–the City really ought to let that be run by someone else, and the fireworks which I thought I had a new cool place to watch but was wrong so we sprinted down Main Street!. All in all a good weekend so Go America! Anyhow, we have some news to catch up on so  let’s get into it, shall we ?

News on some alternative transit options in Annapolis. With the garage complete, there are some changes–that wonderful Uber-esque van you could hail for $2 is going away on the 17th. Bird bikes and scooters will remain. The Magenta Shuttle will remain but they are tweaking the Sunday hours. And the golf cart thingies they call the Current Trolley will remain. The City is looking into the possibility of resurrecting the Uber-esque thing in the future. And speaking of the garage, I purposely overstayed my welcome yesterday because I want to know if they charge me for the extra time, or issue a ticket. Stay tuned, I’ll keep you posted. 

The Anne Arundel County Police have launched a dashboard for transparency. If you want to learn more about complaints against officers, this is your place to go. It does not disclose detailed information (as expected) but gives you a great insight into how many, why, and the results. We have a link on EyeOnAnnapolis.net

The Baltimore Business Journal is reporting that there is a new business in town off of Admiral Drive. Two former sneaker (or tennis shoe if you insist) executives from Under Armour and Nike have teamed up to make new sustainable shoes right here in Annapolis. The company is called Made Plus, Inc. ad their shoe, branded a “Skiff lifestyle” shoe is made from recycled goods. Currently they have 10 employees and they are hiring. Currently they have only made 100 pair but are gearing up to make 100 to 200 thousand pair annually. Pretty cool. 

And more coolness. Once again the library and local breweries have teamed up for Cheers to AACPL. August 1, 8, 18, and 24 from 4 pm to 7 pm the selected brewery (which includes Forward, Pherm, Crooked Crab, and Hysteria) will create a special brew just for the library and will donate 20% off of sales that night to the library/. And as it was last year, you can score a limited edition piont glass each night with a $10 donation to the library! Details on EyeOnAnnapolis.net or at AACPL.net

OK, and that’s a wrap on the news. Up this Saturday on the Local Business Spotlight is The Put Away and then, the Ballet Theater of Maryland! Other pod news– hope you caught the bonus pod with Karen Henry from Anne Arundel County Department of Public Works–she is the big cheese over there! And did you adopt one of those puppies we had on Canines and Crosstreks last Friday?

Alright, let’s put this puppy to bed with a quick thank you to you. And also to our sponsors for this Daily News Brief– Annapolis Subaru, the SPCA of Anne Arundel CountySolar Energy Services, and Hospice of the Chesapeake.

So now you need to hang tight; George Young from DCMDVA Weather is standing by with the only locally forecast weather report you will find. And Bridgett, also known as BeeprBuzz, is here after binging on bananas all weekend, with Annapolis After Dark! Anyhow, all that coming up in just a bit, so hang tight!
