Good morning, it is Thursday, June 6th, 2024, and THIS is your Eye On Annapolis Daily News Brief presented by Annapolis Subaru and the SPCA of Anne Arundel County.

Sad news. My kiddo in North Carolina apparently does not listen to the DNB—too bad, I had an extra birthday present ready for her! And wow, those storms and tornadoes last night put a crimp in Annapolis High’s graduation! George should have something on that. Anyhow, we have some news, so shall we?

Anne Arundel County Detectives are investigating an armed robbery on Jennifer Road in Annapolis. A 44-year-old man was approached by two masked suspects after withdrawing cash from Wells Fargo Bank. One suspect was armed with a handgun and demanded cash, which the victim handed over. The suspects then fled in a blue sedan towards Route 50, driven by a third man. Anyone with information is urged to contact the detectives at 410-222-4730, or anonymously via the Anne Arundel County Police Tip Line at 410-222-4700.

The City of Annapolis has announced the creation of the Maryland Walk of Fame, set to debut next spring. Located on Main Street, the Walk of Fame will honor Marylanders who have achieved significant accomplishments in various fields such as arts, sports, and public service. Nominations are open to the public, and a selection committee will review submissions. Mayor Gavin Buckley highlighted the Walk of Fame as a way to celebrate the state’s rich history and diverse talent. The inaugural honoree is Toni Braxton who was born in Severn and I believe graduated from Arundel High. They are looking for sponsors of the program and sponsorships range from $5,000 to $100,000. There is some limited info at MDWalk.com

Captain Walter H. Allman has been appointed as the new Commandant of Midshipman of the United States Naval Academy, effective immediately. He returns to Annapolis from Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam in Hawaii, where he served as director of Targeting and the Fires and Effects Center for the U.S. Pacific Fleet. Allman graduated from the academy in 1997, and has a son entering his second year at the academy–no pressure there.  Allman took over in a Change of Command Ceremony at the Academy yesterday morning and officially relieved Colonel James JP McDonough, the outgoing Commandant of his position. 

Timber Pizza Co. is set to open a new location in Annapolis this summer. The franchise is known for its wood-fired pizzas and seasonal ingredients. The new restaurant aims to provide a cozy dining experience and contribute to the local food scene. More details will be available closer to the opening date which is later this summer when they open on West Street next door to Sailor Oyster Bar. 

Podcast stuff–  Up this weekend on the Local Business Spotlight we chat with  Ken from Kona Ice– an appropriate Local Business Spotlight considering it is summer!
