September 1920 was all about women in politics in Harford County. As a result of the recent passage and ratification of the 19th Amendment to the Constitution, women were given the right to vote. The Aegis newspaper reported that the Republican women "will take their initial fling into local political matters when they convene in the Armory to elect a member of the Republican State Central Committee on September 14." The Aegis continued, "In order to get in the good graces of the ladies, our Republican leaders hit upon the plan of filling the existing vacancy with a lady, elected by popular vote.

Maryland's highest court yesterday threw out the convictions of two Eastern Shore women who were sent to prison after their babies were born with cocaine in their systems, likening the prosecutions to going after mothers who smoked, failed to exercise or even went horseback riding while pregnant. While social workers regularly get involved when newborns test positive for drugs, Talbot County appears to be the only place in Maryland - and just one of a few in the nation - where police and prosecutors were putting mothers in prison for it. Within hours of the court's opinion yesterday, Talbot County State's Attorney Scott G. Patterson said in a statement that his office disagreed with the decision but would cease the practice of charging such mothers with reckless endangerment.
