Former Maryland Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. will host Mitt Romney's wife at the BWI Marriott on June 12. Tickets start at $1,000 for a general reception and will cost $15,000 for dinner. Romney will be in town on the same day that Obama plans to swing through for a pair of fundraisers , including one at the Inner Harbor and another in Owings Mills.

Hours before President Barack Obama was expected to appear in Maryland for a handful of fundraisers today, state Republicans cast his visit as an attempt to rally a base that they argued has been diminished by Democratic policies. "If this was four years ago, he'd be filling the convention center," said David Ferguson, executive director of the Maryland Republican Party, noting that Obama's second and larger fundraiser of the day will take place instead in an Inner Harbor hotel. The event is a fundraiser, not a rally.

On July 11, at 9 a.m., 40 women joined together with three instructors to participate in (what we think is) the first Zumbathon held in Catonsville to benefit the Susan G. Komen 3-Day 60-Mile Walk for the Cure. With these participants, our team raised over $600 towards our walk. Zumba is a Latin-style dance/workout. We would like to thank the following people for their contributions to door prizes: Opie's, Six Mile Coffee and Catonsville Hair Co. We would also like to thank Maggie Schorr and her bootcamp for hosting our event and our Zumba instructors Katie Banta, of the Catonsville Y, and Marlene Scott and Sue Hays, who donated their time for the fundraiser.
