Bushmill Tavern is the restaurant/bar that every neighborhood wishes it had. There's nothing fancy about the place, from the bare bones decor to the burger-centric menu, but thanks to friendly service and a ton of talent in the kitchen, locals could eat at Bushmill every night and never get bored. The Abingdon restaurant opened in February. In May, chef Mark Littleton took over in the kitchen. Littleton, who developed a loyal following in the city during his stints at Annabel Lee Tavern and the now-shuttered Adam's Eve, keeps the menu casual but shows off his cooking chops with top-notch execution and creative touches to standard dishes.

Sixteen vehicle airbags and a vehicle were stolen in Aberdeen, Abingdon and Belcamp last Wednesday night through Thursday morning, according to the Harford County Sheriff's Office. According to detectives, in almost all of the cases, the thieves broke out a rear passenger window, unlocked the front door and then, after opening the hood and disconnecting the battery, re-entered the car and stole the airbag affixed to the steering wheel. The batteries are disabled to avoid the airbag deploying, which could injure the thief, but also renders it useless, according to Edward Hopkins, spokesman for the sheriff's office.

Amelia and Thorpe Staylor's suburban garden began about 15 years ago when the former bankers downsized from a 12½-acre property in Havre de Grace to a quarter-acre lot in Abingdon. The smaller space gave them new opportunities to focus on garden design, Amelia Staylor says. But first, they had to solve the problems of a steeply sloping backyard that was susceptible to erosion. Their solution was to create three outdoor rooms and position higher plants on the downward slope. They also "borrowed" the landscape of a wooded common area to provide a backdrop to their design.

Single-handedly behind the scenes, Mr. Cheney has wreaked more havoc than any other American citizen ever.

When I sat in my car after voting at the local fire hall in Harford County Tuesday and watched the American flag gently sway in the cool summer breeze, I just thought to myself, "How lucky am I to have been born in America?" Nowhere else in the world could I enjoy the lifestyle and freedom that I enjoy here. I am now 61 years old and have never missed an election since turning 18. People who are dissatisfied with the direction we have taken ask me what can we do to restore our constitutional form of government and shrink its ever-growing footprint, and I say to them: Restore yourself, your family, your faith and be a virtuous person.
