  • How Mr. Trash Wheel Is Cleaning The Chesapeake Bay

    Marylanders take pride in the Chesapeake Bay, the backbone of our state, but the watershed hasn’t been healthy for several decades. The Chesapeake Bay Foundation gave the bay a C- in its 2016 report, which was the last released assessment of the bay.

    This is sad to hear considering the history of the Chesapeake Bay. It was formed 10,000 years ago and is home to 3,600 species of plants and animals. The Chesapeake Bay and its tributaries have 11,684 miles of shoreline, which is more than the entire West Coast of the United States.

    Despite the bay’s importance, people dump tons of trash into it each year, making the water look disgusting and harming the animals that inhabit...

  • Letter To The Editor: Misleading HeadingExclusive

    If readers failed to read the entire recent article titled “Chesapeake Bay Health Improves As Government Reduces Enforcement,” they might think the bay is improving without government funding. This is erroneous, as the bill to reduce funding has not passed out of Congress. The bay and rivers in Maryland are not in good health. For example, many of our Maryland rivers received a failing grade in categories that grade the quality of the water. They need both government funding and public support. Please contact your federal and state representatives and ask for funding to protect the bay, rivers and creeks of Maryland.

    There is another thing that we can do ourselves to improve...

  • Can Your Pet Escape That Winter Weight?

    As we approach the holiday season, we can’t help thinking about all the great food we like to share with family and friends. It is also a good time to think about helping your pets get in shape and prevent the dreaded excess “winter weight.”

    Obesity is an increasingly common problem that affects 40 to 50 percent of our pets today. The effects of obesity are far-reaching, predisposing our pets to insulin resistance, type II diabetes, orthopedic disease, heart disease and certain types of cancer. A pet is not in ideal health when it is not at its ideal weight. However, many of us have also discovered how difficult it can be to get motivated to help our pets lose...
