In a couple of weeks, state legislators will gather in Annapolis for the annual circus that is the Maryland General Assembly's legislative session. Given that 2014 is also an election year, the show will be even more entertaining, or depressing, depending on your point of view. For 90 days between January and April, issues like raising the minimum wage, the rain tax, marijuana legalization (pot for tots) will suck up a lot of oxygen. However, the only requirement our legislators must fulfill is passing a balanced budget - something they just can't seem to get right.

An Odenton woman was sentenced to eight years in prison Thursday for stealing more than $350,000 from the Ellicott City architectural firm where she worked as an office manager and bookkeeper. Jacqueline Gatton, 40, had pleaded guilty to theft for stealing checks from Architectural Collaborative during a five-year period. Howard County Circuit Judge Timothy J. McCrone sentenced her to 15 years, but suspended all but eight. The money was discovered missing after Gatton was fired in July 2008 for "work-related issues" such as showing up late or not showing up at all. When co-owner Tom Hager examined bank statements and books left by Gatton, prosecutors said, he noticed checks made out to Gatton and signed by his business partner, Dave Robbins, with a stamp.
