After three successful seasons, the Annapolis Shakespeare Company is completing its final production as a resident theater company at Bowie Playhouse with a fine production of Shakespeare's "The Tempest," continuing weekends through Aug. 17. Annapolis Shakespeare was founded in 2009 by Sally Boyett as a workshop group and quickly rose to become an accomplished performance company at Bowie Playhouse. Nevertheless, when the troupe made its Bowie debut in 2011 with "Twelfth Night," one could hardly have anticipated it outgrowing this venue in just three years.

"We're trying to create a community environment here," Cares said.

The $1.1 billion plan to overhaul the city's schools is fine, he told Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake and new superintendent Gregory Thornton, but the economic issues facing families need to be addressed first. The city's problems "won't be fixed by brick and mortar," the Cherry Hill Community Coalition representative said. "That's where I disagree with you," the mayor replied, adding that even the city's poorest areas produce good students, who desperately need a place to succeed.

Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz's last four years have been about not listening to the people who elected him, and that will not bode well for him in November. Residents of Baltimore County are used to thoughtful, transparent and open discussions on issues that affect their neighborhoods. Mr. Kamenetz has been running Baltimore County like his own kingdom where residents' opinions and concerns fall on deaf ears. Mr. Kamenetz is more in tune with the developers and construction companies that are overbuilding our county to the point of being ridiculous.

Maybe you read on Slate, saw on Colbert or heard on NPR how a developer qualified for tax benefits under New York City's Inclusionary Housing Program by agreeing to add to its new luxury building on the Upper West Side set a number of "affordable" apartments.

The American Civil Liberties Union notes that at least some utilities have turned over customer data after legal demands. San Diego Gas & Electric, required by California regulators to report annually on privacy issues, said it disclosed 3,056 customers' records last year, some of which could have included "energy usage data of varying granularities.

Baltimore County Police Chief Jim Johnson says officers in his department should not have asked to meet with two Dundalk activists after they testified at a County Council work session in Towson this month. The Dundalk residents — a community association president and a former state lawmaker — have said it felt like police intimidation when officers met them at a local library to go over rules for public meetings after they had testified against county plans to redevelop the North Point Government Center.
