Tuesday Round Up...

With the moving clock ticking and a considerable amount of work left to do, we're running out of steam here at Hayduke Blog Central. Thanks go out to the little brother for his superb work on the bathroom floors last night. Now, if we could get the new vanity/sink installed, our only bathroom will be fully functional. Here's to hoping the water's flowing by Saturday -- moving day.

On, then, to the news...

As expected, county executive James Robey proposed a 3-cent reduction in our property tax rate. Last month, bloggers, include myself, debated the merits of Robey's proposal as compared to councilman Charles Feaga's, which calls for a 1 percentage point reduction in the annual assesment increases. To read the debate, click here and follow the links.

Two more Democratic candidates enter the District 2 race, swelling to four the number of hopefuls for the currently unoccupied seat. Speaking of which, the Howard County Democratic Central Committee, according to the article, met today to decide on David Rakes' replacement. Though I'm not sure who they will choose, the smart money has to be on Calvin Ball, who finished second to Rakes four years ago and whom he endorsed upon resigning last month.

That's all for now. I know this is a pathetic showing for a Round Up. I'll do better the next time.
