Harford County is hardly Tinsel Town. The closest places to Bel Air named Hollywood are in St. Mary's County on Maryland's very lower Western Shore and in Carbon County, Pa., not too far from Scranton, backdrop for the hit TV series "The Office. " Yet Bel Air, for the third year in a row, will be the scene of a film festival come the weekend of Oct. 21-23, and it will feature fare found at the Sundance Film Festival and other venues that specialize in celluloid offerings of a more cerebral timbre than the typical summer smashes and seasonal blockbusters.

The Bel Air girls soccer team came at C. Milton Wright's defense with persistent pressure that came from everywhere in the first half. Freshman forward Alexcia Kraemer made sure the hard work paid dividends for the No. 5 Bobcats as she scored two goals before halftime to send Bel Air to a 3-0 home win over the No. 8 Mustangs. "Very early on, we had to adjust to the wet field," Bel Air coach Josh Clemmer said. "We kind of mishit a couple balls and that was almost a wake-up call for us. … As soon as they figured out to strike the ball solid and play the skip on the field, they pressured up. " The win helped the Bobcats move a big step closer to clinching the Upper Chesapeake Bay Athletic Conference's Chesapeake division.

Editor: I wanted to take an opportunity to provide some comments in summary of the recent Town of Bel Air election. First, I must express my gratitude once again to the voters of Bel Air. This campaign was yet another rewarding experience for me as a candidate. I always enjoy knocking on doors and hearing feedback from voters; this truly is a great town in which we live. I am pleased to see two outstanding incumbents remain in office and am delighted that a very well qualified challenger is joining the board.

Editor: What a great idea! The banner idea, no doubt will be a heart-warming experience for both veterans and their families, as well as the public. However, there will be very deserving men and women who will not be on a banner, because a relative, mother and father, son or daughter, cannot afford to pay the $200. This letter is to thank those veterans. They know what they did, and maybe next year someone will find a way to get all of their names flying in the wind over Main Street in Bel Air. Robert M.

Letter to The Aegis | January 17, 2012
Editor: I find it very disturbing that the Town of Bel Air is paying nearly $1.3 million to create 33-metered parking spaces [Bel Air Building Passing into History, The Aegis Jan. 11, 2012]. That is the cost for purchasing and subsequently demolishing the old BB&T Building that abuts the Harford County Sheriff's Office in Bel Air. In total, this amounts to just under $38,900 per parking spot. How many years does the lot have to be in use to even break even? Will the meters be in use 24/7 or will this result in free nighttime parking for those establishments adjacent to the property?

When it comes to picking their next state senator, many Harford County voters will choose between two familiar names. The Democrat is Mary-Dulany James, a four-term state delegate whose father, William S. James, was a Maryland Senate president. The Republican is Bob Cassilly, who served on Bel Air's board of town commissioners and on the Harford County Council — and whose two brothers are also running for office in Harford this year. Both James and Cassilly believe they have the experience and vision to represent Harford's interests in Annapolis, replacing Nancy Jacobs, a Republican who is retiring after 16 years in the Senate.
