Letter to The Aegis | August 12, 2014
Editor: I was pleased to see Bryna Zumer's article in last week's Aegis about the growing popularity of solar electric power. I was disappointed Harford County Public Schools did not get mentioned, as we were one of the first to install photo-voltaic systems on seven of our schools in 2011.  I have attached information about our systems. More recently, we were recognized for being one of the first school systems in the state to implement a comprehensive commercial composting program at several schools.

Editorial from The Aegis | October 29, 2012
A Harford County Circuit Court Judge, recently appointed to the bench by the governor, is on the ballot unopposed in Tuesday's general election, but it isn't because she hasn't faced any other candidates. In the primary back in April, she was opposed by Steven J. Scheinin and H. Edward Andrews III, both of whom have become the voice of the opposition to having judges appointed by the governor. Bowen got more votes than Scheinin and Andrews combined, and, because of a quirk in Maryland judicial elections, won both the Democratic and Republican primaries.

Editor: Please allow me to introduce myself. I am Donte' Lamont Hickman, the Pastor of the Southern Baptist Church. I have been the Pastor of Southern for 12 year, and since I began as Pastor, we have implemented a vision and mission driven church committed to community outreach and transformation. About four years ago we began a multi-site church in Harford County. We had members who already lived in Harford County and we wanted to provide another ministry presence and option for established and new residents of Harford County.  Interestingly enough, the first place I came to look for a facility to hold services in was Joppatowne.

The following letter was sent regarding the article written by Bryna Zumer and is published with the consent of the writer. I just want to take this opportunity to acknowledge with heartfelt appreciation that I and my family feel for the wonderful article you wrote regarding Joshua's case. So many people have told me that your article touched them so much and brought tears to them. I am so thankful that you took your time to come and sit there and wait as we saw the court system has their own agenda and schedule.

Editor: I would like to ask the citizens of Harford County which of the following pieces of legislation they would support: • An onerous sales and inflation tax on gasoline that will increase the current rate by 83 percent in five years; • The most oppressive gun control law in the nation that strips away our Second Amendment rights to defend our families; • A multi-billion dollar risky wind mill project - the only kind of this...

Editor: A single disgruntled teacher makes a statement at a community meeting in Edgewood and The Aegis prints a "front page, above the fold" article that states "teachers want the Superintendent of schools to be gone. " No surveys, no data, just one person's opinion was enough for The Ageis ' editor to target Dr. Robert Tomback for attack. Basic rules of journalism require that a topic sentence be supported by factual evidence. Yet, the entire article disproved both the misleading headline and the teacher's misplaced attack.

Albany, New York.--Mario Cuomo, who always had both the mournful countenance of a basset hound and the serrating bite of a Doberman, is feeling frisky but not friendly. His famous fluency, the product of genuine passions, is the primary reason many Democrats want him to run for president. But the nature of his passions may preclude that.He is a man emphatically, and with a kind of grim exuberance, out of emotional synch with the country. For now. He believes the emotional high from the war -- a high he seems to find as disturbing as the war -- is perishable, and indeed is perishing as he speaks.

After several months of crippling snowstorms and flooding, I really look forward to spring weather, green grass, and flowers in bloom. The advent of spring is also a great opportunity to turn over a new leaf on our dietary and exercise habits. In fact, I've been told that hundreds of communities celebrate the advent of spring with something called the Great American Meatout. Local health advocates host educational events, where they ask visitors to get a fresh start this spring with a healthy diet of vegetables, fresh fruits, legumes, and whole grains.

Editor: This Friday, the Bel Air Independence Day Committee will deliver to this fine community a wide range of activities and spectacles the likes of which are only witnessed once a year in this town.

Our Committee is comprised of ordinary people who do extraordinary things for this day. Their dedication over the years has been an inspiration to me. The number of hours that they spend planning and executing their various contributions is incredible.

Editor: It is with great enthusiasm that I write this letter in support of Monica Worrell in her candidacy for County Council, District F. Having been the benefactor of Monica's volunteer efforts for many years, I can confidently attest to her strong commitment to community service and her tireless work ethic. Monica was the treasurer for the HHS Music Boosters three years and helped oversee their overnight trip to Orlando with over 200 students participating. The countless hours Monica spent working to raise funds and tracking accounts allowed students to have a remarkable once-in-a-lifetime experience.

Editorial from the Aegis | June 12, 2014
It's been more than a decade since all the voters of the county could vote for all the members of the county council. A key argument in favor of switching from countywide to in-district selection of county council members was that the smaller districts would allow for more grassroots campaigns. Rather than have to get a message out to a county of 250,000 — the theory went — candidates in a particular district would only have to reach about 41,500 people. Actually, the number of people needing to be contacted is even smaller than that as each district has roughly 27,500 registered voters.

As taken from the pages of The Aegis dated Thursday, June 11, 1964: Glue sniffing was in the rise in Harford County among people ages of 13 to 17. Dr. Henry Freimuth, a toxicologist from the office of the Chief Medical Examiner, furnished the following information relating to the habit of glue sniffing. The practice of glue sniffing is a means of obtaining a cheap high. Most sniffers fail to realize the practice could be habit-forming and may cause harmful after effects. Drowsiness, stupor and unconsciousness may follow.

Letter to The Aegis | June 10, 2014
As a resident of Fallston (District B), I was disappointed to see that The Aegis endorsed every sitting Board of Education candidate. The argument in favor of the sitting candidates seemed to be that they had experience on the Board. If that is the standard, we could argue that Board members should be appointed for life. No need to have an election and get new perspectives on the Board. In the three to four years that many of these Board members have been on the Board, we have had a consistently underfunded school system, a complete breakdown in cooperation between the Board and the funding authorities, significantly underpaid teachers and staff, a loss of qualified teachers and a reduction in services and instruction.

Mr. James realized his omission and, after the fact, ran his idea past Editor John D. Worthington Jr.Opined the Aegis' subsequent editorial of Mr. James' bill: "Good idea, poorly presented."

TAIPEI, Taiwan - Taiwan's foreign minister said yesterday that Taipei could accept a Bush administration decision not to sell the island warships equipped with the sophisticated Aegis weapons system. "It isn't the end of the world" if Washington decides not to include the Aegis system, which can detect and track more than 100 missiles, aircraft, surface vessels or submarines at a time, in the package of weapons it sells Taiwan, Tien Hung-mao said in an interview. "Aegis has been singled out as the weapon Taiwan has to have.
