Nevin Young, Republican for Mayor of Annapolis (E-42)

This week, we speak to the last (we think) of the four candidates vying for Mayor of Annapolis in the 2017 election.  Nevin Young is an attorney in Annapolis and is running as a Republican.

Young talks about his desire to run for Mayor during the last cycle and what prompted him to run this year. SPOILER: He feels the current administration is not being a good steward for the citizens. Take a listen. It will help hone your decision.

For more information on Nevin Young:  Nevin Young For Mayor
And speaking of decisions.…we will be hosting a Mayoral Forum at Rams Head On Stage on June 28, 2017.  There is no cost and the doors open at 6pm with the 90 minute forum scheduled to begin at 7pm. All 4 candidates have confirmed their attendance. For more details, please follow our Facebook page!

25 Years of Institutional Knowledge; A Conversation with St. John’s President, Chris Nelson (E-40)

He’s leaving!  After more than a quarter-century at the helm of St. John’s College, Christoper Nelson is retiring! With that kind of tenure, we thought it woudl be a great time to invade his office and talk.

We covered all sorts of ground. From what makes St. John’s unique, to how they insulate themselves from the political turmoil found on many campuses, to the changes he has seen in Annapolis and St. John’s over his tenure.

We talked about the struggles the college faced during the recession, and the struggles all colleges are facing in today’s world and what will be needed to thrive going forward.

Chris Nelson has left a mark on the institution and the town and our conversation brings it out. Did you know the Nelson is the longest serving president of ANY college or university in the state?  Now you do.

Chris leaves his post (and cushy office) at the end of June and will take a brief sabbatical while he organizes his new home, and then like Schwarzenegger in The Terminator—he’ll be back. Nelson will return as a Tutor (that’s Johnnyese for Professor).

The Baltimore Ravens; Play Like A Raven, Ravens Foundation, and a look into 2017 (E-39)

The Baltimore Ravens one of Maryland’s two favorite NFL teams. And the season does not end in February (hopefully) but continues year round.

This week, we talk to three key (off the field) people about what The Ravens are doing off-season and what the 2017 team looks like.

Play Like A Raven. Adam Rudel talks about the fun outreach of The Ravens and their caravan. The Play Like A Raven Clinic is an on field clinic for kids 5-15 and will feature pro coaching, retired players and more. The clinics will be coming to Annapolis High, on June 12th, Urbana High on June 13th, Meadowood Regional Park on June 14th, and Queen Anne’;s County High on June 15th!  But if you are not on the field, there will be plenty of free stuff to do–cheerleaders, players for autographs, Poe, inflatables, and much more. Check it all out here!  AND….we have 5 tickets to the clinics to give away!  Just be one of the first 5 to email us at info@themarylandcrabs.com

Ravens Foundation. Heather Darney is the Executive Director of the Ravens Foundation and the Director of Community Relations for the team. All too often we hear the bad news surrounding the NFL and the players. What you don’t hear is the great stuff the Ravens Foundation and the players are doing on their own. From a bookmobile to providing meals to needy families in their home states to helping to quell a riot in Baltimore. Heather clues us in!

A peek into the 2017 team. Finally Garrett Downing, who hosts the Ravens Daily podcast during the season and is their Social Media Manager chats with us about the prospects for 2017, the draft, and what surprises Ozzie Newsome might have up his sleeve.

Crystal Spring or Village at Providence Point; we talk to the developer for the latest (E-38)

Roadtrip!  The Maryland Crabs took to the highways this week and headed to Rockville and the National Lutheran Communities & Services (NLCS) HQ to speak with Larry Bradshaw, their CEO.

NLCS is the developer behind the proposed continuing care community called The Village at Providence Point…or for you old-timers….Crystal Spring.

The original plan has been scaled way back and now features strictly an age restricted continuing care community to serve the needs of the senior population in the area. But it comes with some questions.

And we ask them. What about the size? What about the preservation of the existing forest? What about the traffic? Schools?

Listen in as the head honcho gives us the scoop on where they are and where they are headed in Annapolis.

Thank you to everyone who wrote with suggestions for upcoming episodes. We are on it.

We also talked about his efforts to get AC in the Baltimore schools and making schools start after Labor Day statewide!
