Good morning, it is Wednesday, March 13th, 2024, and THIS is your Eye On Annapolis Daily News Brief presented by Annapolis Subaru and the SPCA of Anne Arundel County.

Man. St. Paddy’s weekend is barreling down on me. Be sure to check out today or tomorrow for al all-encompassing St. Paddy’s Weekend guide. I just need to get my butt in gear. And speaking of butts in gear, we have some  news, so let’s get into it, shall we ?

Monday evening, in Edgewater, a 35-year-old man was arrested after a prolonged standoff with the Anne Arundel County Police. The incident, which began before 3:30 p.m., involved the man assaulting another individual in a residence on Midland Road. Police, arrived at the scene to find him barricaded in a bathroom, armed and wearing bulletproof armor. The man, who was prohibited from firearm possession due to a past conviction, was finally arrested without incident after police insured the home was empty and they broke down the front door. He is now facing charges of second-degree assault, reckless endangerment, and firearm-related offenses, and is being held at the Jennifer Road Detention Center without bond.

In Annapolis, preparations are underway for the 250th anniversary of the United States’ founding, to be celebrated in 2026–man it seems like the bicentennial was just yesterday! Mayor Gavin Buckley and the City Council have formed a commission to organize the city’s festivities. This committee, comprising representatives from various sectors, aims to create diverse and informative celebrations, recognizing Annapolis’s significant historical role, including being the temporary capital of the U.S. and the signing location for the Treaty of Paris.

The Rotary Club of Annapolis is offering scholarships to local high school seniors and home-schooled students in select zip codes. With a commitment to community service, the club will award up to four scholarships of $2,500 each. These are intended to assist with college expenses. Students planning to attend an accredited college or university can apply by April 15, 2024, through the Rotary Club’s website at
