County agreement will allow fireworks to continue — for now

    When the county announced its intention to sell the North Point Government Center property in December 2012, one of the first concerns raised was of the future of the annual July 4 fireworks display.
    Each Independence Day, the Dundalk Heritage Fair Association funds and organizes a community fireworks show, launched from the county-owned grounds near Grange Elementary School.
    As plans to sell the Government Center have progressed, public concern over the future of the much-beloved tradition has increased.
    Last Tuesday, the county signed an agreement with the Heritage Fair Association that will allow the fireworks to continue for at least the next year.
    According to Joe Falbo, president of the Heritage Fair Association, the agreement will allow the fireworks display to continue, regardless of the status of development at the Government Center site.

Democrats propose annual pass system for Key Bridge tolls
Wednesday, 27 August 2014 12:04
 by Ben Boehl

    It took a while, but it appears that the Democratic state legislative candidates in the 6th District are on the same page, at least on the topic of tolls.
    State Senate candidate Del. John Olszewski, Jr. and Del. Mike Weir have been campaigning together, but House candidates Jake Mohorovic and Nick D’Adamo had appeared to be taking an arm’s-length approach to their fellow Democratic nominees.
    However, the full slate is now cooperating on legislation that would help motorists with the cost of tolls.
    Olszewski and Mohorovic announced that, if elected, they will cross-file legislation in both houses of the General Assembly in January to lower toll rates on the Francis Scott Key Bridge. D’Adamo and Weir agreed to serve as co-sponsors of the cross-filed legislation.
    The bill would create a commuter plan for the I-695 harbor crossing that would be similar to the Hatem Bridge Plan, which connects motorists between Harford and Cecil counties on U.S. 40.

DiCara admits master’s degree claim on website was wrong

 by Ben Boehl

    After a local blogger raised questions about Joe DiCara’s online résumé, the Democratic County Council candidate said he does not have a master’s degree, but admitted that such a claim had been listed on his website.
    An Aug. 16 Google cache version of DiCara’s campaign website includes the claim that DiCara had received a master’s in marketing from the University of Baltimore, but an updated version no longer mentions the degree.
    When blogger Buzz Beeler inquired to see if DiCara’s claim was legitimate, an update was made to DiCara’s site.
    DiCara told The Eagle that he does not have a master’s degree and admitted a mistake was made.
