First came the food trucks. Now, there's a cookie scooter. Back in June, Columbia resident Casey Dyson launched CookieRide, which sells home-baked cookies from an environmentally-friendly scooter. Dyson has been bringing CookieRide to Columbia gathering spots like Lake Kittamaqundi, office parks and outdoor pools.

Annapolis has been experiencing a rash of motor scooter thefts as the weather has heated up this summer. Owners have reported some that vanished minutes after they were parked; others were recovered in such bad shape that they were no longer drivable. Police have even recovered scooters they believe were stolen but hadn't yet been reported missing. Police said that in May and June, they received reports of 13 stolen scooters and one attempted theft. They expect scooter thefts to continue through the summer, because that's when the small vehicles get the most use. Barely any are reported stolen during the winter months.
