Anyhow, we have a bunch of news to catch up on, so, shall we?

I expect to hear more a bit later this morning, so check back with, but the Annapolis Police were sent to the Taco Bell on West Street just after 7 pm on Friday night for a stabbing. According to fire officials, there was one victim with a stab wound to the face. Police have not released any information on a suspect or the victim or circumstances. 

County Executive Pittman announces that our Corrections Department will be the first in the nation to launch a “Bystander Training Program” in the jails. He says it is a program to promote a safer and more positive environment in the jails. It is based off of a program called Active Bystandership for Law Enforcement, but is being adopted for the correctional facilities. But how many bystanders are there in a jail? This program is just about as foggy as it was yesterday morning. 

We sort of saw this coming. But Governor Moore has announced that he is cutting 8% across the board of the Maryland Department of Transportation. This is in response to the expected budget shortfalls, and there likely will be more to come as the surplus the administration has inherited has been depleted.

Artie people ought to be happy. We got word of these too late for Friday, so we went the social route. But Nancy Hammond Editions has opened the new gallery on Sixth Street in Eastport–fun fact: that was Nancy’s home and very first gallery, so she has come full circle. And Art Things will reopen on Saturday in Maryland Hall. It was recently purchased by Sarah Winchester, and I know many people are thrilled to see this Annapolis staple come back to life!

We learned at 7 pm last night that the Hokies will take on the Green Wave in the Military Bowl here in Annapolis on December 27th. Virginia Tech has been here three times, and this will be Tulane’s first appearance. The teams have played a total of nine times in history, and the Hokies lead that series 5-4. Tickets are available now at and you definitely want to keep your ears open because we will have a bunch to give away as well. On the morning of the 27th, the parade kicks off at 10 am, and again, yours truly will be emceeing it from right at the base of the City’s Christmas tree–so stop by and say hello!

Hopefully you caught our Canines and Crosstreks on Friday with Cinnamon Zoey the Shih Tzu that nearly got stolen by me!. And hopefully, you have some room in your heart and home for her. She’s totally adorable and looking for a perfect home! If you missed it, go back and have a listen!

On Saturday, we spoke with Sally from the Classic Theatre of Maryland and all about the goings on this month and beyond–if you want professional theatre–that’s the theater you want! Do give that a listen!

OK, that’s a wrap– thank YOU first and foremost, and also a quick thank you to our sponsors for today’s Daily News Brief– Annapolis Subaru, the SPCA of Anne Arundel County, Solar Energy Services, Hospice of the Chesapeake, and Scout and Molly’s.
