MLK / Inauguration Day Schedule Changes, and The Ravens Head To The Super Bowl
January 21, 2013
The Ravens are headed to the Super Bowl. This after the team defeated the New England Patriots by a score of 28 to 13 in yesterday's AFC championship game. Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco threw three touchdown passes without an interception to lead Baltimore to their second Super Bowl, which is being held on February third in New Orleans. It'll be a battle of brothers, as the Ravens and head coach John Harbaugh will be taking on the San Francisco 49ers and their head coach Jim Harbaugh (more here from the Baltimore Sun and here from NPR).
Today's a day to celebrate the Ravens' victory. It's also the federal holiday honoring the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. -- prompting many schedule changes. The Baltimore Sun has a complete rundown here; an overview is as follows:
Federal, state, and local government offices are closed.
Public schools closed today; so are courts and banks and public libraries.
There's no regular mail delivery from the post office today, but express mail is still going out.
There's no regular trash or recycling pickup in Baltimore City - but trash removal service goes on as usual in many other jurisdictions.
And don't forget to feed the meters -- parking meters around the state don't take today off.
Today's also Inauguration Day... which means some schedule changes for public transit services. Local MTA buses, the Metro Subway and the Light Rail aren't seeing any of those changes -- they're all running on their regular schedules. But commuter buses aren't running today. And there's no regular MARC train service. MARC is running special service to and from DC for President Obama's second inauguration. Most tickets for those trains have been sold... but some are still available, cash only, for the price of $25. As of this posting, you've only got a couple hours to get those tickets. You can do so at the Brunswick station through 8am, at the Germantown station through 9am, and at the Halethorpe and Odenton stations through 10am.
And on today's edition of Inside Maryland Politics, WYPR Senior News Analyst Fraser Smith talks to WYPR's Statehouse reporter, Karen Hosler, about the 2014 gubernatorial candidates and their fundraising totals for 2012.
