  • The 2017 General Assembly Has Big Ramifications

    Pre-empted by two last-minute lawmaker resignations and bitter press battles waged from both Democrats and Republicans, the 437th session of the General Assembly looked to be a circus in the making.

    Cougars Reign Supreme With 11th State Championship

  • Now Is The Time To Start Retirement Planning

    My mother has told me all my life, “If it’s meant to be, then it’s up to me.” When I was in high school trying to make the team or make the grade, my mother always responded with this wise quip, but I didn’t really understand it. Yes, I understood that she meant I...

  • The State Budget

    At the end of the Maryland General Assembly’s 2016 legislative session, I wrote an article that highlighted some of the good, bad and ugly legislation that was passed and how it affects Anne Arundel County. Governor Larry Hogan has shown that he and his administration are dedicated to improving Maryland’s future by improving its education system, infrastructure and public safety without increasing taxes or our debt. The $17.1 billion budget continues to be a responsible way of funding all necessary state-funded programs and agencies without raiding special funds or raising taxes on Maryland’s citizens.
    One of the main funding initiatives in the governor’s budget...

  • 2017 Forecast Is Good For The Future

    Let’s face it: Anne Arundel County had a rough couple of years when it came to some of its representatives.

  • Let 2017 Be The Year You Discover A New You

    We all want to look and feel our best. Carrying around excess weight is a strain on the body’s organs and systems. The good news is that losing even just a small amount — 5-10 percent of your weight — brings great benefits that include increased energy, reduced soreness, and improved health from lowering blood pressure and cholesterol. It also contributes to better blood sugar levels, prevention of Type 2 diabetes, and reduced risk of heart attack or stroke. In fact, obesity is directly correlated to hypertension and Type 2 adult-onset diabetes.
    To maintain a healthy weight, try small lifestyle choices, like eating more whole grains and produce, drinking plenty of water,...

Current Poll

Would you prefer the recent anomalies in temperature to continue?
Yes! I am all for a warmer winter. It's about time!
Not at all. Winter is my favorite time of year. And besides, we need a break from the summer heat.
I like the occasional warm winter day, but I don't think that I'd like to spend the whole season in the seventies.
