I want to thank you for choosing to publish the opinion piece written by Erma Durkin in Saturday's paper ("A Catholic's case for marriage equality," Sept. 29). It was a thoughtful, rational, logical, and obviously heart-felt statement, and it really cut through all the polemics that people have piled onto the gay marriage debate. For Mrs. Durkin, myself and hopefully most others, it simply is a matter of allowing those among us who have grown up experiencing different feelings to fully participate in personal life and have the sorts of practical relationships most of us take for granted.

One of the busiest Saturdays of the spring is coming up in Harford County on April 26, featuring four events many people have taken to marking their calendars for each year. Walk A Mile in Her Shoes in Bel Air, Clear Your Clutter Day at Harford Community College, River Sweep on both shores of the Susquehanna River and the Harford Earth Day Celebration in Aberdeen are activities that put service and helping others at the forefront, while at the same time giving participants a chance to have a little fun. Walk a Mile in Her Shoes To coincide with National Sexual Assault Awareness Month in April, Harford County-based non-profit SARC will host its sixth annual Walk a Mile in Her Shoes: The International Men's March to Stop Rape, Sexual Assault & Gender Violence on Saturday in downtown Bel Air. The event has a goal of raising $50,000 to support SARC, which provides hope and resources for victims of domestic violence, sexual violence and stalking.

January is Get Organized Month, a time to bring order to home and office spaces. Not surprisingly, it comes just after the holiday season, which brings its share of clutter in the form of packages, presents, cards, decorations and other items. Nancy Fox says it's not a coincidence that most people hire her services during the start of the new year. The Lutherville resident is founder of Clarify the Clutter, a service that helps people clean out and organize spaces in their homes.

Swim coach Bob Bowman's rustic retreat in Monkton is filled with personal touches that make the place his own. But there's not a tchotchke in sight. With the guidance of designer Seth Foster of Baltimore's Foster Knott LLC, Bowman learned how to incorporate his hobbies and passions into the design of his home but without clutter and distracting collectibles — eye noise that often trips up people when they try to make a show home their show home. Here's a few tricks Foster showed Bowman: Elegant Not Random: Bowman adores horses.

The garden shed is full of junk; debris has reached the ceiling. I open the door and recoil in terror. Out tumbles a family of field mice, who don't scare me, and an avalanche of other stuff, which does.Shovels and saws and things that crawl land at my feet. The mice keep moving, one step ahead of the avalanche, which buries me to my knees.The place is a mess; that's why I'm here. It's time to straighten the shed.I clean it every year during the holidays. Winter is the best time for gardeners to tackle such chores.

High school girls soccer standouts usually don't reside in Carroll County.South Carroll senior Amber Clutter is an exception."At our state [girls soccer] meetings, whenever there's a question about the merits of a player, someone always asks, 'How does she stack up to a Amber Clutter or a Laurie Schwoy?' " South Carroll coach Jim Horn said about his player and the McDonogh All-America who had 49 goals and 21 assists last season. "Amber doesn't quite stack up to Laurie Schwoy, but she is one of the top recruits in the country."

Trying to get a handle on the clutter in your home? Before you go out and spend a bundle on storage containers and organizational paraphernalia, take a look around. You may be able to make that clutter do double duty. Real Simple magazine offers some ways to organize your home using stuff you already have: Use your coat rack as a jewelry organizer.

We live in a lovely area with nice homes, so why are our thoroughfares so cluttered with illegal signage? Many businesses in Towson, along York Road and Joppa Road, post plastic signs, flashing signs, vertical flags, banners, pennants, etc., for which they do not have permits. Unfortunately, a citizen complaint must be filed for each violation. Citizens can call the county at 410-887-8099 for these unattractive nuisances, but I wish that these businesses could be cited without having to call the county about each one. In the meantime, when you see an attractive business with a well-kept exterior, be sure to tell the owner that you appreciate it!

Letter to The Aegis | May 10, 2012
Thank you everyone who participated yesterday in Clear Your Clutter Day. We had an overwhelming response with 623 cars coming through. That number does not include the many cars who got in line, waited an hour and decided to move on before actually coming through. At times the traffic snaked around and through the college and there were three aisles of cars working their way through the parking lot. HCC Security did a fantastic job of managing the traffic. I am profoundly appreciative of the people who stepped in at the last minute to help and who without planning gave up their Saturday just to keep the event moving including: BumbleJunk of Bel Air - Ryan and Stan; Rebecca and Annabel Jessop; Amanda McGhee and family; Greg Deal, Steve Pulliam and Lou at HCC. Thank you to the partners who came on time: SARC,Lions Club, Habitat for Humanity, Always Recycling, The Shred Mill, College Hunks Hauling Junk, HCC Vowlunteers.

In the 400-foot-plus turbines that a wind energy company wants to build on his tree farm on Maryland's Eastern Shore, Hall Coons sees a chance at a steady stream of income — and an opportunity to untether his economic fortunes from the ups and downs of the lumber market. But to the radar system at the Navy base across the Chesapeake Bay, the spinning blades of the towering pylons would look like aircraft — and interfere with the test range where the Navy studies how its planes appear to enemy radar, military officials say. Plans to harness the winds that blow across the Eastern Shore for cheap, clean, renewable energy are arousing concern at Naval Air Station Patuxent River.

The table in Jack Samuels' Fells Point office is piled two feet high with books, papers, scientific journals and grant applications. Samuels' wife likes to tease him that he has a hoarding problem, just like the people he studies. In reality, those stacks of paper might hold a remedy. Samuels, an associate professor of psychiatry at the Johns Hopkins University's School of Medicine, is the go-to guy nationwide for researchers seeking to understand the biological basis of hoarding — an intense, irrational drive to collect items in vast quantities, coupled with an inability to discard even objects that are worthless or broken.
