I’ve been at The Baltimore Sun for nearly six weeks now, and it’s been a very busy blur. I’ve had to get comfortable with all of the new systems (e-mail, budgeting stories, filing stories, requesting photos, etc.) while covering lots and lots of news.
I’m covering Annapolis and Anne Arundel County — mainly government, but also a little bit of everything. And Anne Arundel County has no shortage of news.
In my first week, I managed to land stories on A1 twice — first, when the county executive vetoed a stormwater fee and second, when I wrote a quick-turnaround profile of the state’s corrections secretary.
A few other stories I’ve liked: A co-written, in-depth look at safety concerns in obstacle/mud runs; a feature on the county’s foster parents of the year and a bit of a spat between the former county executive and the new county executive.
