    No worries, Martirano said in his apology presser that "a full forensic audit will be conducted on an ongoing basis to make sure this will never happen again."

    There, everyone feel better now?

    When did this happen?
    No more food truck Tuesdays?
    So I was wondering what this place was? I just saw that HoCo terminated their lease. Is this a place I should have visited? It’s right down the street from me.

    They have 90 days to disassemble and get out

    It's an empty building that was going to be a farm museum. Lots of dreams with not enough funding. Some good people wanted to keep the Howard County farming legacy alive.
    Both my parents grew up on farms in Howard County.

    Can't have that in Calvin's Howard County, those farmers where probably, *gasp* white people.

    We were outside tonight talking to the neighbors who's oldest is in middle school. Very nice young lady who told us that her bus has been late both ways every day this week, and that on Monday afternoon the driver was asking the kids where to go and eventually dropped them at a church which is about six blocks from their stop.

    This is rich.
    Drivers to get a $500/week bonus for doing their job.

    Annapolis Bus Co. Had to bring in out of town management last year from AACO because the local management team was messing up so badly.

    The guy who runs this site (and probably wrote this) comes off as a pretentious dickhead online, but it's a very well done summation of the current cluster and how we got here through the failed leadership of Martirano. He doesn't come out and directly call for his scalp like I would have, but other than that pretty well done.

    Wife and I both work in Howard (APL), live up in Carroll (Eldersburg). She's been following this, having an officemate with kids from HoCo. Makes me incredibly glad I didn't pay the higher taxes, HOAs and housing price for a place in HoCo when we moved here 8.5 years ago - multiple incidents with their schools (this, the redistricting a few years back). CC isn't perfect, to be sure, but sure ain't bad (at least right now).

    daughters morning bus. seems to be about 15 mins early and her evening bus seems to be about 15 mins late.

    While I love a good gripe I can’t be to mad on my end here about it.

    The more I learn about this the madder I get about the fact that the county abandoned the local bus contractors - county citizens who were locally employed- in favor of hiring a company literally across the country. It doesn't look like they saved any money so what are the taxpayers and school students getting out of this? (besides the future promise of an electric school bus)

    I didn’t know any of this. I was just talking about the timing.
