  • PBA Update

    The Pasadena Business Association and Two Rivers Steak & Fish House hosted the annual Fifth-Grade Straight-A Lunch last week.

    Chesapeake Arts Center Opens Newly Renovated Gallery

  • Maryland Is Headed In A Better Direction

    In my role as delegate, I speak to a lot of community groups around our district throughout the year. In the past, I have really had to memorize a few good things that were happening in the state so my speeches wouldn’t sound all “doom and gloom.” This year, I’m in the happy position of having trouble remembering all the good things that are happening!

    In my experience, it’s extremely rare for a politician to deliver on his campaign promises, but that is exactly what Governor Larry Hogan has been busy doing. He campaigned on a platform of lower taxes and more jobs for Marylanders, and so far, he is doing a great job delivering on those promises.

  • The Do’s And Don’ts Of Noise Phobias And Separation Anxiety In Dogs

    Is your dog scared of thunderstorms? Does he or she cower or pant and pace at the sound of fireworks? Have you ever come home to find that your dog has chewed a hole in your wall? Behavior problems are one of the most common causes for pets being relinquished to a shelter, or even worse, being put to sleep.

    It is natural for dogs to become destructive or try to escape when they hear a startling noise like fireworks or thunder. Often, dogs become fearful of thunderstorms because of the combination of the sounds of thunder and rain as well as the change in barometric pressure. It is important to focus on easing their anxiety; do not punish them for their behavior. You can try to relieve...
