Here are the top three stories in Catonsville today:

  1. On Mar. 11, Secretary of the Interior Deb Haaland visited Catonsville to tour the Patapsco River Restoration Project and “discuss how nature-based-solution projects can enable ecosystems and communities to be more resilient to climate change.” Secretary Haaland also saw the results of the 2018 removal of the Bloede Dam, allowing a more natural river flow which created about 250 miles of spawning habitat and nourished the land downstream. (US Department of the Interior)
  2. On Mar. 10, the Board of Education of Baltimore County listened to parents speak about the rising violence in Baltimore County Public Schools, but did not comment or make any changes to the district’s disciplinary policies during the meeting. Many parents agree with the disciplinary policies, but do not think the county is enforcing them. Amy Adams, president of the Baltimore County Parent and Student Coalition, said that “this year, there are frequent reports from schools all over the county of repeated disruptive behavior by a small group of students that goes unchecked and often escalates.” (Fox News Baltimore)
  3. Jayne Miller, a WBAL journalist for 39 years and winner of many national and regional awards in journalism, recently went to El Guapo in Catonsville for the Maryland Crab Cake Tour with Don and Nestor. Miller discussed the importance of local news, ways to improve Baltimore, “fake news” and more over nachos and crab cakes. (Baltimore Positive)
