Good morning, it is Tuesday, June 11th, 2024, and THIS is your Eye On Annapolis Daily News Brief presented by Annapolis Subaru and the SPCA of Anne Arundel County.

Do you know what has made my spring? I sit on the ICST Board at Annapolis High, and last month, we worked with the Annapolis Maritime Museum and Bread and Butter Kitchen to give the graduating signature students a fun field trip on the Wilma Lee. On Thursday, they gave me an amazing thank-you gift—two framed photos from the sail, all signed! Congrats, A-High Signature kids—you truly rock! Anyhow, we have some news, so we better get to it, shall we?

Usually sleepy West Annapolis has seen a series of car break-ins over the past few days. On June 9th, officers responded to Dewey Drive where a complainant reported that an unknown person had smashed the front passenger window of their car and stolen items. The same night, another vehicle on Claude Street was targeted in a similar manner. The day before, a car on Tucker Street also had its front passenger window smashed, and items were taken. Not sure locking them up is going to solve these! Get the Ring cameras trained om the cars I guess!

The channel leading to the Port of Baltimore has been completely cleared after nearly 11 weeks of work following the Francis Scott Key Bridge collapse. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers announced the reopening of the 700-foot-wide Fort McHenry Channel. This follows extensive efforts to remove approximately 50,000 tons of bridge wreckage from the Patapsco River after a cargo ship collision on March 26th killed six construction workers. The collapse had severely disrupted the supply chain, affecting thousands of port employees. While the channel is now open, the bridge itself won’t be rebuilt until 2028.

An Annapolis-based shoe company, Made Plus Inc., plans to triple its revenue this year by launching three new shoe designs. Founded by former Under Armour and Nike employees, the company will release the second version of its flagship shoe, the Skiff, along with a running shoe and a pickleball shoe. The Skiff 2.0 features a new rubber sole from Michelin and targets the local nautical community. The company focuses on sustainable, zero-waste shoes, and personally, my Skiffs are one of the most comfortable shoes I have worn! 

The Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum will celebrate Independence Day with Big Band Night on July 6th. The event, featuring the Shades of Blue Orchestra, begins at 7 pm at the Tolchester Beach Bandstand and will conclude with fireworks over the Miles River. The museum’s Welcome Center opens at 6 pm, and attendees are encouraged to bring lawn chairs and picnic blankets. Tickets are available on the museum’s website or at the door. Food and non-alcoholic beverages will be sold during the event, which has a rain date of July 7th. We went there last year and it was a blast–brought a basket with some food and wine and it was a perfect Fourth of July! But, beware for some reason there is no nightlife down there–we tried to grab a nightcap in St. Michaels and the town was shut down at 9pm on a Saturday night!
