    Water Access In Anne Arundel County

    On a sweltering June afternoon at Fort Smallwood Park, children waded into the Patapsco River, arching their fingers at distant boats. Other kids, armed with miniature rods, cast lines from the shore. This display occurred just one week after Memorial Day weekend, when swimming at Fort Smallwood...

  • A mother and survivor of the foster care system, Leann Rhodes wrote the book “Rise Up. Shine On,” encouraging all women to never forget that they are loved.

    Pasadena Resident Pens First Book To Empower And Support Women

    By her own admittance, Leann Rhodes should be just another sad statistic in the conversation on abuse and addiction. In her new book, “Rise Up. Shine on,” Rhodes provides intimate details of her childhood, and how she refused to be deemed yet another lost soul consumed by where she came...
  • Pasadena Theatre Company’s upcoming production of “Twelve Angry Men” will be true to the time period to better express the strengths and weaknesses of the justice system.

    Pasadena Theatre Company To Present “Twelve Angry Men”

    Reasonable doubt: It’s the standard of evidence required to determine a suspect to be guilty or innocent. But how often is reasonable doubt (or lack thereof) swayed by the outside influences that a jury of one’s peers brings to the courthouse? On June 18, Pasadena Theatre Company will...
  • The real backbone of “The Nice Guys” is its A-list cast, with Ryan Gosling and Russell Crowe headlining and doing just about everything they can to make their performances distinct and surprising. Unfortunately, the film isn’t as flexible and daring as the actors are in their roles.

  • The Practical And Personal Importance Of Valuing Education

    With the recent actions of the Maryland General Assembly and the Anne Arundel County School Board Nominating Commission, I want to discuss why I and every county executive before me have taken a strong interest in the school board of Anne Arundel County.
    There are two main reasons. The first is practical, and the second is personal. As a practical matter, education is the most important thing that county government does. This is reflected in the fact that education constitutes 51 percent of the county budget. Under the governance structure of our school system, the board of education handles all operational responsibilities, but the county is the final fiscal authority. County executives...
  • Council Update

    Graduations have begun, Memorial Day weekend has come and gone, and the summer is soon to be in full swing.

One of my passions is to help the vulnerable in our society. Last year, I sponsored and passed legislation that...
  • Politics Are Ruining Our School Board

    Our students have become the victims of politics and personal agendas, and this situation could have been averted. In 2007, as a freshman senator, I boldly warned the originator of the current school board and selection process that it was going to be a debacle and asked him to relinquish his...
