The Boniface family of Bonita Farm in Darlington has been through a lot this year. Benjamin Boniface, 20, died when he lost control of his pickup truck on the private farm lane early one morning in June after "he failed to negotiate a curve," according to the Harford County Sheriff's Office. And Deputed Testamony, their home-bred who was the oldest living Triple Crown race winner and the last Maryland-bred horse to win the Preakness, passed away at age 32 in September. But the Boniface family, like their horses, is made of hardy stock.

Condolences to the Boniface family on the passing of their beloved "DT" ("'83 Preakness winner Deputed Testamony dies," Sept. 19). He enjoyed a long life at Bonita Farm and certainly brought prestige to the Maryland racing and horse breeding industry. He will always be honored in the record books, but more importantly, he will always be honored as a true champion in the hearts of Maryland racing fans. His greatness will live on through his progeny for many years to come. Kitty Deimel, Hampden

Harford County Democrats rejected a deal that would have given them one seat on the panel that will draw new County Council boundaries, before the council voted to exclude the party entirely from the redistricting process. Democrats, who trail registered Republicans in Harford County by fewer than 1,500 voters, are now planning a legal challenge to the county provision that led to their being left out. Party members became ineligible to serve on the commission when they did not pull 15 percent of the votes in the November council election and are now deemed a fringe party under the county charter.
