  • How To Engage In Giving This Holiday Season

  • Gift-Giving Inspiration For The Holiday Season

    Gift giving can often be the most stressful part of the holidays. Even if you are able to nail down someone’s interests, it’s always tough to find the perfect present. “Money in an envelope just won’t cut it,” you think, “but what in the world can I buy?”...

  • If You Can Think It, D’s Tees Can Print It

    It all started in summer 2016 when Elisa Henderson and her teenage daughter, Devyn Trosser, wanted to put some of Devyn’s artwork on T-shirts for a few upcoming festivals. But when she looked at companies that could do the order, she was blown away. “Their prices were insane,” she...

  • Legislation On Pesticides Is Overkill

    October was a pleasant month to be outside enjoying the great parks, playgrounds and all of the outdoor activities that Anne Arundel County has to offer. However, a sign on one playground caused some concern from a few citizens about the type of chemicals that are being used to treat the weeds and pests at some local playgrounds. In an effort to stop pesticides from being sprayed on parks and playgrounds, a councilman has introduced Bill 76-16, which would eliminate the use of pesticides on playgrounds throughout the county. I understand the concern that people have, but I think that this legislation is overkill on a concern that has not manifested itself as a problem.
    I am skeptical of...
  • State Must Get Real With Spending

    For nearly a decade, the members of the House Republican Caucus have held firm in the belief that our state does not have a revenue problem, it has a spending problem. A recent meeting of the state’s Spending Affordability Committee is yet another reminder that, without meaningful spending...

  • What Happens When The Dentist Needs A Dentist?

    I have witnessed the high-technology changes in dentistry since I started going to the dentist as a child in the 1950s, and I am still a dental patient.
    Last month, I fractured a large tooth-colored filling in a back tooth. There was no pain, but now the dentist needed a dentist.
    I called my general dentist and went for a consultation. An X-ray was taken. The digital image was shown to me on the monitor, and I quickly noticed an abscess on the tooth next to the broken tooth. There was still no pain, but now I had two problems. I scheduled an appointment to have a crown placed on my broken tooth, but before that, I needed to see an endodontist for a root canal on the adjacent tooth.
  • Getting A New Best Friend

    Many pets can make wonderful companions for you and your family. When choosing a pet, remember that they can be in your life for a significant amount of time – anywhere from two to 15 years depending on the species, age and breed. Also, some pets will need more training, socialization,...
  • Mama Knows Best

    From the minute a woman becomes pregnant until delivery, she is undermined. She is either too old, too overweight or too small in the pelvis. The second-guessing of her ability to birth and mother doesn’t end there. Perhaps her baby doesn’t latch properly or she doesn’t produce...
