Going On: Illegal Hunter Shot, Apple Opening, Council Retreat (Demo)

County Council critiqued for retreat, Apple to open mini-stores inside some Target stores, Five dudes go on illegal deer hunting trip in Ft. Washington and accidentally shoots his hunting buddy

Prince George’s County Council is holding its annual retreat in $139 a night per room and $550 a day for meeting rooms.  I wouldn’t mind them going to Baltimore if the County wasn’t facing a $125 million deficit.  Neighboring counties in better financial states don’t spend this kind of money on retreats.  The actual cost for the 2-day retreat might not be exhorbitant but in this economic climate, the decision to spend like this makes the County Council look frivolous.

Apple will be opening new mini-stores in Target stores  in areas that don’t have enough Apple customers to support the opening of a full Apple store.  This endeavor will start with 25 Target stores where IPods, IPads, MacBooks, IMACs and other Mac accessories will be available.  So that means a Target in Prince George’s County has GOT to be opening a mini-store, right?

Five men were hunting off Indian Head Highway and Oxon Hill Road.  Get this, the land where they were hunting is owned by the Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission.  Some of these guys didn’t have on flourescent clothing so when a deer they were trying to flush out suddenly jumped out and scared them, one of the “hunters’ shot his buddy in the stomach.
