The question now: What are the candidates going to talk about, and will they tell Annapolitans what they  want to hear?  The races for mayor and for City Council seats for Wards 1 and 2 will have Democratic and Republican runoffs during the primary election on Sept.  17. Five races, including the mayoral race, will have face-offs in the general election on Nov. 5. Some council seats are uncontested.  We’ve heard from some of the politicians. We know some of their agendas, talking points and campaign  slogans,  But how does the rhetoric match what regular citizens think are the key issues?  In an attempt to find out, The Capital hit the streets last week to ask residents what’s on their minds and what concerns they hope the 2013 election’s candidates will address.  Foiu* reporters were dispatched to different areas of the city.  (See CITIZENS, Page A13)  No smoking ouUloors?

It has been the subject of many neighborhood conversations.  On one side, some residents fish in the murky brown water On the other, an old, tired swing is has been left broken and unused. Old beer cans are mangled in the plants.  Murphy points down to a few snapping turtles coming up from the water Despite appearances, he said, there’s still a variety of marine life below.  “It’s a small piece of a land with a big past,’’ said the former president of the Forks of the Patuxent Improvement Association “Everyone who lives around here knows that bridge”  And there's one particularly striking thing about the 6 acre parcel along the river right off Piney Or chard Parkway.  About 20 years ago, it was forgotten.  (See PARCEL, Page A14)  LITTLE PATUXENT PARCEL  Howard  County  Fort Oeofge G.

In the mid ’90s, the land was supposed to have been donated to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife service for the establishment of the Patuxent Research Refuge in Odenton, but the parcel, known as the Little Patuxent Parcel, was inadvertently excluded during the survey.
