It seems like every time I watch the news or read the newspaper Baltimore City has reported homicides all the time. This city is no longer a safe city to live in. Most homicides are due to robbery. What is this city coming to? I think our mayor needs to fix it. Milton Hill, 70, was the eighth homicide victim last week. Having eight homicides in one week really shows how dangerous Baltimore City is. Most of the homicides were people who did no wrong and were just at the wrong place at the wrong time.

It's America Recycles Day , so listen up: The secret's out about a little-known municipal service offered to Baltimore City businesses - free and practically unlimited single-stream recycling. “The key advantage to business single-stream recycling is that firms can eliminate up to 50 percent of their trash costs when they shift from costly garbage collection to free recycling,” according to Robert Murrow, Baltimore City's recycling coordinator. Though the Department of Public Works web site appears to limit free recycling to  "small businesses in residential areas," Murrow said in reality the city will pick up recyclables for free from businesses of all sizes, no matter where they are. Those firms generating enough recyclables to regularly fill a dumpster or in need of more than once-weekly collection can arrange that with the department, he said.  As a practical matter, DPW draws the line at picking up more than three times a week, he added, so any establishments needing that much service ought to hire a private processor.
