Good morning, it is Thursday, April 18th, 2024, and THIS is your Eye On Annapolis Daily News Brief presented by Annapolis Subaru and the SPCA of Anne Arundel County.

It’s one of those mornings, a bunch of bad news with a few shining lights toward the end. Can’t say I didn’t warn you! So, let’s get into it, shall we?

The Anne Arundel County Police are probing two fatal traffic crashes that occurred on Laurel Fort Meade Road. The first incident involved David Michael Pulaski, 37, from Rockville, who was fatally struck by a pickup truck yesterday morning while crossing at a traffic light. The second crash, occurring early yesterday, claimed the life of Jeff Charles, 37, from Laurel, after his vehicle crossed into opposing lanes and overturned. The police have yet to determine the causes and are continuing their investigations.

The police are also investigating an armed carjacking that took place Tuesday night in Linthicum. An adult male was held at gunpoint and had his 2020 Ford F-150 stolen while inflating his car tires in the 500 block of Progress Drive. The suspect, described as a black male in dark clothing, remains at large.

I am not sure what’s going on with the Annapolis Police Department. They have not updated any daily police reports since Monday. Putting a note on my to-do list for today! Alright, enough of the bad!

Anne Arundel County’s Superintendent of Schools, Dr. Mark Bedell, is continuing his series of community conversations to enhance transparency and engagement with residents. These sessions will begin next Monday at Glen Burnie High School and will offer the public a chance to interact with key school leaders and discuss school performance and other topics. We have all the dates, locations, and times at EyeOnAnnapolis.net

Listen up, ladies! Homestead Gardens is hosting its wildly popular Annual Spring Girls Night Out next Wednesday evening at its Davidsonville location. The event promises a night of shopping, sipping, and sampling from dozens of local restaurants and businesses, with attendees enjoying a special 25% discount on purchases. Someday, like the Paca Girlfriends Party, I am determined to sneak in and see what goes on!

The Annapolis Children’s Business Fair is set for April 27, 2024. This fair is part of a global network that encourages young entrepreneurship, with children aged 5 to 16 running their own business stalls. The event, which promotes creativity and business skills, will include competitions for Most Original Business Idea, Highest Business Potential, and Best Presentation. The fair is expected to be a dynamic showcase of youthful enterprise and innovation. It all goes down at Gloria Dei Lutheran Church ion Arnold from 1 pm to 4 pm.  We have more info on EyeOnAnnapolis.net or you can go to MarylandCuriosityLab.org

Podcast stuff– Up this weekend on the Local Business Spotlight, we chat with Mickey Love from Historic London Town and Gardens about this hidden gem in Anne Arundel County and an upcoming event. And earlier this week, I said we were speaking with Annapolis College Consulting– my apologies, we have them NEXT Saturday!
