Circulator and Shuttles Bring Mobility to Southern Anne Arundel County        On July 1, the Anne Arundel County Transportation Office launched two new transportation options to serve the south of the county: the South County Circulator and two Zonal Shuttles. This initiative was the result of dynamic collaboration between Ramond Robinson, head of the Transportation Office, and the South County Huddle, a local volunteer organization.

Farewell to a Legend: Michael Hosford

In the rich land that was the Annapolis restaurant scene in the 1970s, Michael Hosford was a legendary bartender, and his domain was the Maryland Inn. There are a few things you need to know about the Inn back then. The hotel housed The Treaty of Paris, a world-class restaurant, and two bars, The Drummer’s Lot and The King of France Tavern.

New Public Transportation Programs

       For people in South County, there is no public transportation between Edgewater and the Calvert County line. In early July that will change with two pilot projects.         The Circulator bus will start at Annapolis Mall making stops in Galesville, Shady Side, Churchton, Deale, Tracy’s Landing, Wayson’s Corner, Lothian, Harwood and Edgewater before returning to the mall.

Put Solar Panels over Parking Lots       It should be unlawful to use good agricultural land for establishing solar farms when there are thousands of parking lots. Parking lots only serve for  parking vehicles. Asphalt covered parking lots re-radiate heat into the atmosphere, which contributes to global warming, and the polluted water runoff often causes flooding, overloading streams resulting in bank erosion and the killing of fish.
