  • County Seeks Assistance For Homeowners And Business Owners Following August 12 Floods

    Many parts of Anne Arundel County experienced flash flooding on Tuesday, August 12, due to near record-setting levels of rain. Because of those floods, some homes and businesses sustained damaged.

The county is currently working with state and federal agencies to determine whether uninsured homes and businesses will be eligible to receive low-interest loans to assist in their recovery efforts. To be eligible to receive a low-interest loan, losses must exceed 40 percent of the property’s value.
    For more information or to be contacted if low-interest loans...

  • A Trip Down Washington’s Forgotten Waterway

    The Anacostia River. What thoughts are conjured up when you hear this river’s name mentioned? I guess the best thing that can be said about the Anacostia is that it never caught fire, as the Cuyahoga River in Ohio did back in 1969. However, the Anacostia River has been horribly mistreated as Washington, D.C., and the surrounding beltway suburbs developed.
    Recently, I was invited by Jim Foster, the president of the Anacostia Watershed Society (www.anacostiaws.org), to take a tour of the Anacostia River. The AWS is located in a historic tavern in Bladensburg, Maryland, but we met up with Jim at the Bladensburg Waterfront Park’s boathouse on the Anacostia River. Here he gave us a...

  • Department Of Health To Begin Raccoon Oral Rabies Vaccine Project

    The Anne Arundel County Department of Health will begin this year’s Raccoon Oral Rabies Vaccine (ORV) Project on September 3. Completion should occur by the end of September, weather permitting. The goal of the project is to immunize thousands of wild raccoons by placing baits containing rabies vaccine throughout Anne Arundel County. This year, with support from Anne Arundel County funding, approximately 85,000 baits will be spread throughout the county. Immunizing the raccoon population helps reduce the number of rabid animals and the number of human and pet exposures to rabies.
    In 2013, Anne Arundel County reported 30 cases of terrestrial (ground dwelling) animal rabies. This is a...
