With the passage of the Transportation Infrastructure Act of 2013, the state’s gas tax wiU rise over several years to pay for transportation projects. This week, motorists will see their fuel tax rise by 3.5 cents — 1 percent.of the annual average retail price of gasoline — to a total of 27 cents per gallon.  “When you’re filling up your tank two and three times a week, that takes a lot out of your profit,” said Robert Eades of the Neet-N-Klean taxicab company. “When do we get a break? When does the everyday working man who depends on gas in his car for a living get a break?”  Michael Smith already spends about $60 filling up his Dodge Caravan. He said he won’t mind the gas tax hike if the money really goes toward building bridges, constructing roads or fixing potholes.

If you own a home you'll pay between $34 and $170 in extra stormwater fees.  If you own a car you’ll pay about an extra 3.5 cents per gallon for gasoline or diesel fuel.  Sowces: Maryland Comptrolkr's Office i Maryland Transportation Authority  County stormwater fees among highest in Maryland  By ALLISON BOURG  abourg@capgaznews.com   Starting Monday, Anne Arundel County property owners will pay one of the highest stormwater fees in the state to help clean up the Chesapeake Bay.  Those fees and the others that will take effect are as diverse as the 10 municipalities that decided on them.  The majority of property owners in Anne Arundel County will pay $85 a year, phased in over three years. Businesses will pay based on their amount of impervious surface. Those bills will be capped at 25 percent of their property taxes.  Carroll County officials didn’t pass a fee at all, saying they would pay for pollution cleanup out of county funds. Frederick County officials levied a 1-cent yearly fee.  “Did municipalities fully embrace it? Are we going to see all of the improvement we hoped for? Probably not,” said Alison Prost, Maryland executive director of the Chesapeake Bay Foundation. “But it’s a good first step.”  The General Assembly passed a law last year ordering the state’s 10 largest municipalities to pass stormwater fees.

Her finances have forced her to continue living at the crime scene.  It took layers of paint to cover the blood, her blood, spattered on the living room walls.  With each stroke of the brush, Deanna Ries-Pace flashes back to the night she was nearly beaten to death in her Severn home.  She was already living paycheck-to-paycheck before it happened. Afterward, paying a crew to clean the home — the crime scene — was not an option.  She can’t afford to move.  Jarob Walsh was sentenced to the maximum 30 years for trying to kill the 34-year-old single mother in the  Story by HEATHER RAWLYK  early morning hours of Dec. 10, 2011. On Wednesday, three county judges denied his request for a sentence modification.  But the story is far from over for Ries-Pace. Eighteen months after the attack, the crime has left her emotionally, physically and financially broken.  “I have to continue to live here, in my own near-death crime scene,” she said. “Here I stand with nothing. I have nothing but blood everywhere.”  (See AFTER, Page A13)  Photos by JOSHUA McKERROW  ''Sometimes the visualizations are so unbearable that I have to get up and leave my own home. ”  — Deanna Ries-Pace  SUNDAY'S WEATHER  85 n  HIGH  LOW  SCAHERED STORMS  Monday: Storms.'C2  BUSINESS  GET YOUR FILL:  County liquor stores ready for growler sales.
