We want your opinions


Howard County is becoming a cultural and international crossroads - the county's foreign-born population stands at 16.7 percent, or 46,000 people, up from just 5 percent in 1970, according to a report funded by the county government and the Horizon Foundation. And that population is growing, posing challenges for schools, social service agencies and health care providers.

How well do you think Howard County is doing in knitting new immigrants into the fabric of the community? What more can be done to foster cultural understanding between native-born Howard countians and those who have made the county their home?
