APD’s Chief Pristoop – On the Other Side of the Interrogation Table (E-15)

mdcrabs_250x250Crime is at an all-time high in Annapolis…or is it? Perception and statistics rarely align and Chief Pristoop joins the Crabs to muddle through both. From cameras to staffing and patrols to public housing, and how he’s going to spend the $1.25 million Christmas gift promised to him by the mayor, no subject is off-limits. And will they ever find John’s bike? Will John ever stop complaining about it?

If city crime is something you worry about, then you can’t miss this episode!

Pesticides on Playgrounds–AACo Councilman Trumbauer Weighs In (E-14)

mdcrabs_250x250Anne Arundel County, Maryland is an odd place. Some things make so much sense, and then…well, others not so much.

This week, District 6 Councilman, Chris Trumbauer talks to the crabs about a common sense bill that he proposed that was shot down like a flaming jug of Round-Up! He proposed that the county limit the use of pesticides on county playgrounds where children play.  Seems like a good idea, right? Find out why it failed!

We also talk about County Executive Steve Schuh’s new rural zoning proposal, the health (or not) of the Chesapeake Bay. We dig deep and find out his feelings about Kanye West (not really), and the inside scoop on what is next for this effective, term-limited politician!

A few housekeeping notes and a teaser or two.  Earlier this year, we spoke about crime in Annapolis and had Robert Eades as our guest.  He has had some surgery along with some complications and is in a bind.  If you can, check out this GoFundMe page and toss a few bucks his way. He is very much part of the fabric of Annapolis.

And coming up in the next few weeks….we are putting Annapolis Police Chief Michael Pristoop on the hot seat now that the City has seen a historic high murder rate. After that, Speaker of the House of Delegates Michael Busch, and then Governor Larry Hogan!  So, make sure you are subscribed!

What’s the REAL Deal with Public Housing in Annapolis?

mdcrabs_250x250Public Housing has been in the news this year. Crime is up. Drug dealing is up. HACA, the Housing Authority of the City of Annapolis has been under fire. Mayor Pantelides is the first Mayor in recent history to reach out and try to correct the course.

This week, we sit down and talk with Sandra Chapman who is a public housing resident and also chair of the HACA Board, and Chip Doordan, the former CEO of Anne Arundel Medical System who also serves on the board.

HACA has problems. They admit that they will not be solved overnight. But they have a plan and we crab about it. In the end, we did not solve the woes, but we see the vision and will revisit it again in six months to see how it is all working out!

THIS is a good one!

Where Do The Locals REALLY Go? (E-12)

mdcrabs_250x250

The elections are behind us and we figured we needed to lighten things up a bit and not delve too deeply into anything. So over lunch at Rocco’s Pizza we decided to talk about where the locals go.  No, don’t worry. It’s not one of those pay to play top lists of advertisers–we have none! We kind of ramble on (apologies in advance–we’re kinda stunned by the election too), but talk about the hidden gems in our area.

Hey, have you listened to any of our previous episodes? You really should. They could change your life. Granted, your life would have to be pretty bad. But still, we have some gems you will want to check out!

Or maybe go back and see how we did with our election predictions and prognostications.

mdcrabs_250x250In honor of Veterans Day, we wanted to bring you a special episode of The Maryland Crabs featuring William Keyes, a 95 year-old African-American veteran of World War II. Mr. Keyes has created a fascinating museum to his experiences in the war, along with other aspects of Americana throughout the past century and he was gracious enough to share that with us as well as tales from his service to our country.
