9:12 am
the high temperatures upper 60s and low 670s. sunset this evening at 8:06. variable winds. wave height a foot or less. don't have to worry about lightning today. temperatures in the low 60s. 61. the forecast for tonight clearing, chilly, but temperatures drop back into the 40's and there could be a little fog developing late tonight as well. kind of like what happened last night. we had a great stretch of weather coming up through the beginning of the week. high pressure is going to work its way in and that will be the dominating factor. there will be some rain up in new england and rain out in the midwest. but in between those two systems we should wind up with some good stuff here over the next couple of days. so just a slight chance for shower today. make it up to 71 and then sunshine all the way through the middle of the week. the high temperatures will be in the low to mid 70s. above average. as we head into the weekend put a chance for a few showers and thunderstorms. but even then only a 30% chance with temperatures in the 70s

9:15 am
9:16 am
9:17 am
>> welcome back. time for our sunday business report with jimmy of the baltimore business journal. >> good morning. >> let's start with bje the parent company constellation energy just merged. what does this mean for the rate hikes. >> they were asking to raise the rates for distribution and they're going to put that on the back burner. they're say it's because they don't want to overburden busy regulators for two things for the merger and for the rates but i think it's probably just good business sense to say we're not going to raise your rights right before the merger. so they're trying to set the table to smooth it out and so they've had other merger attempts be disrupted because they were trying to raise rates at the same time. so i think they learned their lesson. >> once that goes through, jobs
9:18 am
would be a big thing. >> they're saying it's going to be a net positive but these never are a net positive for the city that has a company being acquired. but there's going to be some construction, they're talking about getting new building. so there may be some short-term gains and jobs but i think long term it probably will be a net loss. >> bad news on the job front for solo cup company. >> they announced 40 jobs going away. now they're saying they're corporate jobs but 101 jobs could be eliminated or moved to other parts of the city or to their corporate headquarters in illinois. >> all right. good news though for baltimore and the grand pri coming our way. ticket sales are doing well. >> they've done good. they sold out of their 300 v.i.p. seats and all their luxury seats, 36 of those selling for up to $27,000 are
9:19 am
sold out. so everything is progressing well for them. the closer it gets, the better the news comes and the last thing they're waiting for is a title sponsor be in the $1 million to $2 million range. >> if you work in the right building you might have a -- >> right. but if you have a good angle or a good view you might want to wait. >> yeah. just slated $4 until in state funding what does this go for? >> they're going to start planning for their expanding their research capabilities and be a $256 billion building. if they get that approved it will add about 120 jobs and $146 million a year. it will be huge for the west side of baltimore and further their goal of becoming the state's main research institution. >> so mostly good news for us. >> appreciate it. nice to see you as well. >> do april showers bring may

[ male announcer ] new lip perfection. in 44 lip perfecting shades. from easy, breezy, beautiful covergirl. >> good morning and welcome to your sunday gardener. >> good morning. >> from valley view farms. mother's day. happy mother's day. >> happy mother's day. >> we have all this stuff over our heads right now. >> right. >> and that's a good idea for
9:23 am
mother's day. >> it is. >> or any time. birthdays, whatever. >> you've got that absolutely right. one of the cool things about now is mother's day happens to hit our last frost date in most of maryland. so you can bring your tomatoes out now and cucumber plants and get that ready to go but your annual flowers, things like impatience and those thing that is are tender, even your tropical plants. >> what about these hanging baskets? they're quite popular. you see them on porches, they're terrific. portable. >> very nice. and usually they'll have one plant in them and for full sun or part shade or whatever it might be. this plant could handle about half day sun but also full. >> a lot of porches will get morning or afternoon but -- >> exactly. >> wrong side of the house half the day. >> right. but a lot of folks will have some plants out in the middle of the sun. >> these are wonderful.
9:24 am
ferns are betty for the shady areas. impatience for the shady areas. >> now, this is a pre-built one that you can get at the store and there's another idea if you want a container it's pre-built. >> there you go. if you have some at the end of your porch and want a quick fix, this is a great way to go. you can keep it in that basket, just take the hook off. it does get a little color with it and you want to change it out and see if you want to put something else in. so both of these go from sun to part shade. we like to call that the thriller. we usually have a lot in our things and we have all three components. >> kind of like mod lar gardening. >> it is. >> what about the basics? if you want to build one yourself, i mean, you can buy them pre-built but the basics are some sort of framework. >> exactly. some kind of framework,
9:25 am
plastic, fiber, moss or coco moss. what's great about these is they drain very well and they offer some disease resistance. fill them up with potting mix. do not use top soil, garden soil. use something that's going to drain real well. >> that real light wathe stuff. >> and a lot of the baskets behind us are pet nas so look for something that's hanging. >> there is a variety that does, it sends out long runners. meant to spread out. >> these are just great for that and a lot of great colors. but people will have these hanging a little lower so what we used to call our thriller, a tall plant, medium, and a falling over plant. >> the spiller. >> right. >> so a thriller, filler, and spiller. >> i get the sense from looking at this the more you jam in there, the better it looks. >> it's nice about that too and if you lose one there's plenty of plants to take its place.
9:26 am
the biggest thing, well, two things. water when ever they're dry. >> they need a lot. >> hot weather. maybe twice a day. >> absolutely. >> because with this kind of material they dry out quickly. >> that's really what's great about this. on the flip side because they're using that much water they're going to need fertilizer. >> so i usually fertilize mine in the summer about once a week and go for it. that's nice time released fertilizer because then i add a water solyubble fertilizer. >> because it leaches out quickly when you're doing that watering. >> and if you don't overstuff it, it's that much more demained. >> there's a lot of roots in this pot. >> thanks for the ideas for mother's day. next sunday we'll be back with more. we'll see you then. >> if you have a gardening question, send it to sunday gardener wbaltv. you can also go on our website. and the time is 9:26. we're minutes away from sunday
9:27 am

9:29 am
>> welcome back to 11 news sunday morning. thank you very much for joining us. >> we'll take another look outside with tony. >> good morning, everyone. and happy mother's day to the both of you. we're starting out with a little cloud cover and few sprinkles in some neighborhoods. nothing of any consequence. 57 at the airport, 55 in westminster. take a light jacket but doy expect the clouds to break up and we'll get sunshine and that will help. we'll put that 20% in for a rain shower. no big deal. the high temperatures upper 60s. we do have plenty of sunshine. stay with us. >> time now for our sunday morning q&a. joining us ken alman. good morning. >> thanks for having me. >> you just submitted your proposed budget. some papers called it one of the most optimistic budgets to be offered by maryland county this year.
9:30 am
>> first, let me just take a moment to wish everyone happy mother's day and especially my beautiful wife who is at home waiting for us to get back. with our budget actually what the baltimore sun said about being optimistic was one of the best compliments because that's really what we've tried to do in howard county. even though we'd tough times, but we tried to stay focused on the positive. and this is the first year where we're able to move some things forward. we're able to move forward on environmental nishtiffers and be focused on storm water and put in more investment there. so we're starting to see the flicker of hope in the distance that the economy is beginning to come back. >> even with this $1.5 billion plan you anticipate an increase in county generated revenue. where is that coming from? or income tax. our unemployment rate is higher than we would like it to be but it's coming down. people are getting raises and income tax revenue is coming in stronger than we thought it would be. >> you still have a fortunate
9:31 am
county because you're located between washington and d.c. and you have one of the highest income levels around. >> we do. i think we're very blessed to have the location, the quality of life, the great schools, people want to live there and also what's going on at fort mead with the cyber command and the number of jobs coming to the region. we're in a glood place. >> how do you think you fared in annapolis and as someone who represents other counties, how did other jurisdictioning do? >> as president of the maryland association of counties, it was a great session. it was tough, but it could have been a lot worse. the governor did not put in the shift of teacher pensions to local governments which would have been a huge burden that frankly couldn't have been met by many counties. so it was a tough time. we still lost a lot of transportation funding. but it could have been a lot worse. >> when you -- let's go back to what's happening in howard county. nobody is getting a raise. you're covering the basics, eat cade and those things but and you're not going to have any furlough. >> last two years we furloughed this year we're not.
9:32 am
we're starting to come out of this. and in tough times that's what you do. you hold positions vacant, you furlough folks and when you start coming out of it you're able not to do those things. i'm very pleased. >> let's talk about, let me go to an e-mail from our viewers. we have been inundated with this particular question. you recently taken a position against the planned csx international site in hanyorro say it will not cover at this location or your watch. how do you plan on keeping this from happening if the governor and csx support this site? >> there are four sites that they're looking at for intermodal facility to help the port of baltimore. i support the port of baltimore. it's important for the jobs there and also for the region but i said from day one to csx and to m d.o.t. that they had to show that whatever site they picked didn't have a negative impact on existing communities. so far they haven't shown that. i don't believe it will go to elk ridge because of the impact on the existing communities. there's another site that we're hoping they take a longer look
9:33 am
at in jessup. the good thing about that site is there are no residential units very close to it. a lot of ware houses, a lot of industrial. so we think it's a betor fit. >> tell me about what you did at the white house. you were at the white house. >> sure. i was pleased to be asked as a group of 65 county leaders from across the country to go spend a day at the white house with much of the cabinet, the vice president and it was a lot of give and take about frankly they appreciate what counties do. they set policy and we're the ones who implement on the ground. discussion about homeland security, infrastructure. it was good give and take. i'm glad the administration appreciates the role that counties play. >> it's interesting that you were there last week given the whole situation osama bin laden we're talking about increased security in so many ways. howard county is right in the middle of a major security enclave that you want to make sure you protect. >> absolutely. and i must say i'm very proud and especially the sun has an article this morning about the
9:34 am
role that nsa played in the search and killing of osama bin laden. so we're in the heart of a very important national security interest for our nation. >> people forget all the bedroom communities that we have that are related to national security from the fort mead, nsa, and other places that are working on defense issues. >> absolutely. and the cyber command that's being stood up, we look at what happened in the killing of osama bin laden, it was all about intelligence data. much of which happens at fort mead. we're very pleased. and it means jobs for the future. >> what are you going to do for mother's day? >> we're going to have a great day, we'restill going to have a great day. we're going to have a great dinner and my daughter lily, my 5-year-old is joining us here this morning in the studio. so we've got some nice things planned for mother's day. so happy mother's day. >> thank you very much for joining us. >> and don't go away we'll be right back. first here's david gregory with a look at what's coming up.
9:35 am
>> good morning. coming up a special edition of meet the press. the u.s. and the world after swin osama bin laden. the national security adviser tom done lynne pro-plus the perspective of the mayor of new york rudy juliani and former secretary of security. then the roundtable weighs in, what it means for the president and the 2012 campaign. it's all coming up this morning. curtis: welcome back to geico radio, it's savings, on the radio. gecko: hello clarence from stevens point.
9:36 am
clarence: ok, you know the grapes at the grocery store? clarence: well, sometimes you try one. take it for a test drive, see how it tastes. clarence: well, my wife says that's stealing. i say it's sampling. what do you think? gecko: yeah, um, listen clarence, i can't really speak to the moral bit, but if you switch to geico, you could save hundreds of dollars on your car insurance. you could buy a whole heap of grapes. how's that? vo: geico. 15 minutes could save
9:37 am
>> welcome back. a little cloud cover out there this morning. not a big deal. 57 at the airport. a little chilly. you might want to take a light jacket.
9:38 am
i think the clouds will break up and we'll get some sunshine. that will help with the temperatures. right now it is chilly. 61 downtown but only 57 in parkton and 56. watching a little disturbance in the upper levels passing by to our south and west. even few sprinkles in southern maryland and out in the western suburbs of baltimore. nothing of any consequence if you're watching us out there and you've got a couple sprinkles in your neighborhood it won't last long because this whole thing is moving quickly. you can already see the clouds breaking up in southern pennsylvania and it's moving from the northwest to the southeast. so all of that clearing will be working its way down towards baltimore over the next couple of hours. so we expect improving conditions as we go through the morning. so a mixture of sunshine and clouds. keep a slight chance of rain showers in the forecast even this afternoon because the atmosphere is unstable. upper 60s and low 70s. the average high temperature is 71. if you're going to take the boat out it will be a good one. variable winds, 10 knots.
9:39 am
you might see a few sprinkles. the bay water temperatures are now in the 60s. 61 at the thomas point light. as we head through the evening hours the sky will gradually clear. chilly tonight. a little fog will probably develop. the temperatures are going to drop back into the 40's. now, during the day tomorrow we'll start the workweek with nice weather. high pressure in control. but there's a lot of stuff happening around us. there's an area of low pressure off the new england coast tomorrow and rain out in the midwest. but right in between we should wind up with decent weather and that will be the case for the next several days. this is a pretty good seven-day forecast. 72 tomorrow, 73 tuesday, 76 on wednesday. and we're going to keep the sunshine through the middle portion of the week. the next chance for rain is going to hold off until we head into the beginning of the weekend with slight chance for showers and thunderstorms on friday. the high near 76. and maybe increase the chance for rain a little bit on saturday and sunday. butover all that's a good seven-day forecast. >> thank so much tony and
9:40 am

cooking great stuff. what are you going to do? >> goes until december believe it or not. rock fish is gorgeous. we're doing their crispy skin for mom tonight. i just salt and pepper the top side of the flesh. you don't want to salt the skin because it will start to reduce the moisture. you want to press it down lightly. keep it on that side until it's entirely crispy which takes longer than you think. >> and do you have to apply a little pressure? >> you do because the fish will tend to buckle. and then you won't get the crispy skin all over. we have asparagus is amazing this year. it's been a great season for aspare gus. local farmers market. we get this from albright farms in maryland. they have a five day a week, they're a beautiful farm. the asparagus is absolutely gorgeous. tossing it with lump crab. >> great to support the farmers. >> and of course in butter. >> just a little butter. and the herbs are beautiful as i said mention again i love
