AEGIS STAFF REPORT | September 2, 2013
Two small businesses in Harford County developed a creative way to use their resources to support a non-profit in Harford County. As they work together to make Harford County a better place, these women prove that everyone can make a difference. Ewenique Yarns owner Maggie Jackovitz and Kelly's Hair Design owner Kelly Casalena have come up with a "ewenique" way to give back to the community. Jackovitz and Casalena decided to work together to support SARC in its mission to help victims of domestic violence, sexual violence, child abuse and stalking live a life free from abuse and fear.

I've been a physician on the medical staff of St. Agnes Hospital since 1965, and since that time, there has been a significant change in the needs of those whom the hospital serves ( "Some neighbors unhappy as plans coalesce for Cardinal Gibbons," July 1). Regardless of those needs, St. Agnes, in the mission of Saint Elizabeth Seton, has remained committed to provide not just health care but living assistance to our patients. The doctors, nurses and administration of the hospital reach out to its community for support in that effort.

The call to the county homicide detective came in the middle of the night. A man had been gunned down at a bus stop on Eastern Boulevard in Essex. Found on the scene, the victim's cellphone held a message from someone named Ashley. It read simply, "You dead. " Like most homicide victims in Baltimore County, Robert Holiday knew his killer. Witnesses willingly spoke to investigators and testified in court. The result: three convictions in a year and a life sentence for Holiday's former girlfriend, Laquesha "Ashley" Lewis.

I feel bad for Sojourner-Douglass College students who may see the value of their diplomas go up in smoke ( "With Sojourner-Douglass' accreditation in jeopardy, students in limbo," March 30). Until I became involved with Baltimore International College's similar accreditation problems, I had no idea of the power the Middle States Commission on Higher Education enjoys. More than two years ago the culinary arts and hospitality management school was about to lose its accreditation as well, and since I lived in the neighborhood, the thought of an enormous, empty building was alarming.

As a police chief, I know that two of the most important measurements of the strength of a law enforcement agency are the effectiveness of our members and the support of our community. The recent tragic shooting at The Mall in Columbia demonstrated to me that the Howard County Police Department has an abundance of both. Our entire police department, and I personally, have been overwhelmed by the outpouring of support and encouragement we have received from the public. Through emails, phone calls, social media and one-on-one contacts, you have let us know that you feel we met and even exceeded your expectations that terrible day. We are humbled by those sentiments and proud to serve and protect you. I am also proud of the selfless dedication members of the police department showed during an incident filled with uncertainty and fear.

A coalition that advocates for cuts to military spending is calling on Maryland to establish a military downsizing commission to help the state deal with the result of reductions already underway. Fund Our Communities, made up of 60-some political, veteran, faith and union organizations, said Wednesday that it is asking legislators to launch a jobs-focused commission "tasked with developing plans and policies to ensure a competitive advantage for Maryland" as military spending falls.

Roland Park Place is attempting to sell an old church next to its property - the same church it tried to tear down for parking five years ago against strenuous objections by residents who live in the area. "I don't know that we've had any serious offers of late," said Teresa Snyder, president of Roland Park Place, a continuing care retirement community. The church, which was built in 1889 and closed in 1999 due to declining membership, is said to be solid, but needs to be renovated and restored inside, Snyder said.
