Top 5 Stories: Same-Sex Marriage, Market House
Just in case you missed something this week, Patch brings you the week in review for Annapolis and the top stories that everyone's talking about.
The successful passage of same-sex marriage in Maryland was the main topic of conversation seemingly everywhere you went around Annapolis last week.
And downtown, the fate of the Market House, not to mention sharing an opinion on City Council considering spending $300,000 on interior renovations, was frequently discussed. Especially since work on the geothermal wells still dominates the City Dock area.
And that's just to name a couple of the stories people were talking about this week.
We also have some detailed information if you'd like to know more about how to use the Patch site.
This week's top five stories (in no particular order):
- The Maryland Senate passed the same-sex marriage bill after the House of Delegates passed it the week before. The historic measure now heads to the governor's desk for his signature.
- An Ellicott City man was shot twice last weekend in the morning hours on Madison Street. He was wounded in the thigh and suffered a graze wound to his shoulder.
- The 4th annual Annapolis Restaurant Week came to a close last week and this year saw the most participants, with more than 40 eateries participating. City and downtown officials also implemented new incentive programs in an attempt to attract more shoppers downtown.
- St. John's College officials announced several changes for this year's annual croquet match against the Naval Academy midshipmen. Foremost among them will be that they will not allow any outside alcohol onto school grounds.
- City Council is on the verge of approving $300,000 on interior renovations at Market House. Last week the Finance Committee approved the expenditure and Mayor Josh Cohen laid out his case in his regular blog on why council should follow suit.
