We begin with a local news roundtable. Our topics include: the debate over the panhandling bill introduced by Baltimore Councilwoman Rikki Spector; the closing of Santoni’s market, which their owner blamed on the bottle tax; controversy over the proposed CSX rail facility in Morrell Park; and why the autopsy is taking so long in the Tyrone West case. Joining us in-studio is: Odette Ramos, President and CEO at Strategic Management Consulting; Joanna Sullivan, Editor of the Baltimore Business Journal; Melody Simmons, reporter for The Daily Record; and the Reverend Heber Brown, pastor of Pleasant Hope Baptist Church.
