Hello, today is Wednesday, September 14, 2022 and THIS is your eye on Annapolis Daily briefs.
The frog is gone! Can we talk about yesterday’s weather? I mean, from my first morning walk to sitting in a friend’s backyard on Adirondack chairs later in the afternoon, it was spectacular. I also got my hair cut at the Capital Barber Shop — highly recommended, by the way, and my third COVID encore — feeling like a pincushion. All in all a great day! Anyway, we have news, so let’s go, okay?
Dan Belson of The Capital unearthed a story that for some reason was never publicly reported by the Annapolis Police Department. Friday, ODA arrested a 27-year-old Annapolis man charged with sex trafficking. The complaint alleges that the ODA followed the suspect when he took a sex worker from his apartment to another residence. When they searched his apartment, they found $9,000 in cash and 18 grams of cocaine. The woman told police she was brought to Annapolis from New York to repay thousands of dollars owed for being brought to the United States. She also said she was only allowed to leave the apartment when the suspect took her to a client. Good job on Dan. I don’t know why the police wouldn’t report it publicly! Interestingly, all charges of prostitution and sex trafficking are misdemeanors, and the only felony is possession of cocaine. It seems a bit retrograde to me.
I hope you had a chance to listen to Dr. Pam Brown on yesterday’s Hunger Action Month Zoom call. Alternatively, check out the Anne Arundel County Food Bank Facebook page. Some statistics are staggering as inflation continues to rise. And based on yesterday’s CPI announcement, it’s only going to get worse. If you can help the food bank help our neighbors, please do so. You can go to EyeOnAnnapolis.net and see a list of easy ways to help, or go to aafoodbank.org
Hey, that’s fun. Every year they add words to the dictionary. We all know that, don’t we? Well, here are a few from this year’s class that I found amusing! Barkitecture – design the interior and/or exterior of your home around your pets. Algospeak – Use words on social media to avoid algorithms that might flag the comment as inappropriate – like unliving versus dead. Ghost Colleague – I think we can all relate to this, but a co-worker works remotely and rarely contacts other co-workers. And first there was sexting, and now there’s fexting – fighting over the text!
And as we close. Tomorrow, the first Annapolis Songwriters Festival kicks off with a FREE concert featuring local favorites Jimi Haha, Skribe, Dean Rosenthal, then regional powerhouse Honest Lee Soul and headlining…drum roll, if he please…Robert Randolph. It starts at 5:00 p.m. at MC3… which is the Park Place outdoor stage adjacent to the Westin Hotel. Again, totally free. More details and a full schedule at annapolissongwritersfestival.com, and listen to the bonus mod we posted a while ago – lots of great info on paid shows and over 70 free shows happening across the city from Thursday to Saturday! And if you want to see Jake Owen on the City Dock stage on Saturday, let me know. Rams Head just offered me another pair of tickets!
OK, and that’s a wrap on the news! Pod News… This weekend on the Local Business Spotlight, Heather Skipper… the most fitting name for the woman who manages the Naval Academy’s Business Services Division. And next week, John Wojcik, a local author and guy who just started a new business called Mission Next!
All right, let’s put this pup to bed with a quick thank you. And also to our sponsors for this Daily News Brief– Solar energy servicesthe Kristi Neidhardt The team at Northrop Realty, a Long and Foster company, and Scout & Molly’s!
