    When business owner Noel Smith announced plans in 2015 to build a methadone clinic near Hog Neck Road, the community rallied against it, causing Smith to look elsewhere.

    The director and founder of the Serenity Sistas recovery home in Annapolis, Angel Traynor has a contract on the Pasadena property, which includes one large house and three smaller units. She is currently seeking funding from a bank.
    “I am very passionate about recovery, and I am very passionate about helping people...

  • Council Update

    I hope that everyone had a happy and safe Thanksgiving; it is one of my favorite holidays, and I cannot believe it has come and gone so fast. This year in general has really gone by fast. Tree lighting ceremonies are being held throughout the county the last few weeks, many people were out getting those great deals the day after Thanksgiving, and everyone’s favorite Christmas movies are on repeat. Christmastime is officially here, and with all that is going on in the country and throughout the world, there is no better time than the Christmas season to be with one’s family, enjoy one another and give back what we can to those in need. We know that it is not the hustle and bustle...

  • Tech Talk With Dr. Cranska

    Dentistry and modern science have not been able to find a cure or preventative measure for tooth decay. New clinical studies show that chewing sugarless gum for 20 minutes after eating may help to prevent tooth decay.
    Q: What is tooth decay?
    A: Dental decay (also known as cavities or caries) is a bacterial disease. Everyone has bacteria in their mouth that cause caries. These bacteria form a plaque on teeth (sticky bacterial biofilm); a high sugar and starch diet is turned into acid by these bacteria, which causes decalcification and cavities in the tooth, destroys the tooth enamel and allows the decay to occur.
    Q: How does chewing sugarless gum help prevent cavities?
    A: Chewing gum for...
