10/11/2018
More
Yes we know there is an election year going on. Yes we know that Wes Adams and Anne Colt Leitess are both vying for the office. But we were curious--just what does a State's Attorney do? It's a race that many may not completely understand and in that vein, we decided to ask Adams exactly what it is that his office does. The only ground rule we had was no politicking! Taking a cue from Reddit, we had him explain like I was five (ELI5)..which is not too far of a stretch! Anyhow, sit back...

It has been the talk of the town for two weeks. The gawdawful bike lane that the Mayor unilaterally installed on Main Street without warning thereby destroying all businesses.

We have had our own questions and wanted some answers from the horse's mouth so we invited Mayor Buckley to come talk about the bike lane and his thoughts on biking in general. Alex Pline was on hand as well. Alex is a bicycle advocate and...

What happens when a multi-national corporation with deep pockets tries to put a struggling industry out of business? Well, many would sit back and lament the loss; but John Minadakis from Jimmy's Famous Seafood in Baltimore is a scrapper and survivor and he swung back. Hard! PETA took aim at the crab industry and Jimmy's Famous Seafood was having none of it. They employ too many people to let down. They contribute to so many charities.

It sounds a bit like a device you might see advertised on late night television-- Lifeline 100. Might even be a new hospital reality show. But it is anything but that.

But for those (me) not even close to being in shape to ride 100 miles, there are shorter routes--60 miles, 30 miles, 15 miles, and for...
