As the 2024 Maryland General Assembly prepares to convene its three month session on Wednesday, the threat of state budget cuts, along with the drying up of federal COVID money as well as inflation are teaming up to create a rocky budget year not just for Baltimore County but for localities across Maryland.

“You put all of that together and it’s going to be a much more challenging budget cycle for us,” Baltimore County Johnny Olszewski said. “It really is in some ways the perfect storm of presenting some challenges.”

Pet road projects threatened. Tax hike not ruled out.

Some people came from as far as Silver Spring Tuesday night to join dozens of people gathered in front of the Harford County Circuit Court, where Christmas lights still dangled from the trees. In gloved hands they clutched candles and wrote notes with messages for Meghan Riley Lewis.

“She really was the heart of the neighborhood,” said neighbor Carla Brown.

Lewis was killed last Wednesday, in the street in front of her home when a man named Brian Delen shot her through the abdomen. Lewis was a trans woman.

“She made many trans people, especially young trans people, feel like there was a place that they can belong. She made them feel whole, and human.”

But it’s already several years overdue and there are those who say the system used to plan Baltimore County’s future is broken.

Critics say the county’s CZMP cycle is hampering development planning.

The holidays are a time of joy, but they can also be a bit overwhelming. Between the crowds, blinking lights, loud noises and smells can stress out people who are sensitive to sensory input, especially those who are neurodiverse.

Baltimore’s B&O Railroad Museum is doing just that with its Polar Express ride to the North Pole.

Henry “Harry” Lockwood, an eight-year-old with autism, is took his first ride on the sensory friendly version of the Polar Express. Read more with the link in our bio.
