Editor: Harford County was a wonderful place to have grown-up, riding ponies, attending Harford Horse Show Association Shows, and moreover, enjoying country living. The country living which I experienced was one of cooperation, where I never heard a chorus of extremist political views.  However, and sadly,  Harford County has come to be known by State Stakeholders as having political representation which holds beliefs which are far to the right on the political spectrum. The Harford County Delegation in general in known to hold these extreme, right-wing beliefs.

Severna Park's Olivia Reiter wasn't supposed to receive the insertion on a penalty corner with 10 minutes left in Monday's field hockey game with visiting Arundel, but once she got the ball, she knew what to do with it. Reiter fired a shot from the edge of the circle for an important insurance goal, and the No. 4 Falcons successfully defended six penalty corners over the game's final nine minutes and defeated the No. 6 Arundel Wildcats, 2-0. ...

In roller derby, a name says it all. The Hazard County Hellions, Harford County's only roller derby team, chose a name that seems wild and mischievous, a stark contrast to the responsible citizens who form the team. In this sport, theatrics are just as much a part of a match as athletics, and its players, no matter how shy or timid they seem by day, take on sassy, aggressive alter egos when they lace up their skates. Formed in 2013, the co-ed team is part of MADE (Modern Athletic Derby Endeavor)

Welcome to Drug City, akaHarford County,Maryland. Maybe that's what the signs should say on either end of I-95, Route 40 and Route 1 in our county, now that the federal Office of Drug Control Police has added Harford to the agency's High Intensity Drug Trafficking Areas list. As much as some of us may hate to admit it, such a designation was long overdue, unwelcome as it may be. Surely, everyone even remotely familiar with Harford County knows we have a pretty darn bad drug-related crime problem.

Regarding your article about Harford County teachers, our teachers were promised a significant raise and weren't given it ("High school teachers stage protest in Harford County," May 30). We wouldn't be where we are today without teachers, and they're underappreciated. They don't make a lot of money, so they deserved this raise. Instead, all of our money is going toward athletes and singers, who aren't doing anything to shape our world. I hope these protests work out, because these teachers undoubtedly have earned the money.

Many Harford County residents were missing from work and school Tuesday, at least some of them, presumably, to attend the massive celebration held in downtown Baltimore in honor of the Ravens' Super Bowl victory. Attendance at Harford County Public Schools was at 89 percent as of shortly after 3 p.m. Tuesday, Teri Kranefeld, communications manager with HCPS, wrote in an email. She noted that not all schools had reported their attendance for the day, but said "daily average" attendance is usually at 96 percent.

Planning is complicated, especially as those who make the decisions are rarely the same as those whose lives are affected. I wonder, though, if a little less government planning and a little more of citizens building solutions might do us all (and county budgets) some good. I noticed that on April 29, a Harford County-funded Arbor Day tree planting was held at Cedar Lane Regional Park (close to the Bynum Run Conservation Area). The idea was to promote caring for the community forest to foster a healthy environment in a sustainable community.

A federal judge ruled this week that owners of multiple Harford County properties - where portions of a 21-mile underground gas pipeline are being installed under an eminent domain claim - cannot fully access funds set aside by the gas company as a form of collateral until a final determination is made at trial on compensation. Columbia Gas Transmission LLC was granted access to the properties in June to begin installing a back-up gas line between Owings Mills and Fallston under condition that it file a cash bond payment of $231,675 to the court, according to court records.

The National Weather Service is adjusting weather warning boundaries in Howard, Baltimore and Harford counties to reflect geographic differences that can cause wide weather variations. The changes could help reduce false alarms and make advisories more precise, forecasters at the weather service's Baltimore/Washington forecast office wrote in a post on their website . That could be particularly useful for winter storms, when areas at higher elevations and further from urban heat islands can receive significantly higher amounts of snow and ice. On the new map, a line will extend across the three counties dividing them into northern and southern sections (the weather service already divides Baltimore County into northern and southern sections, but the boundary is changing)

The rise of this city in Harford County and its decline owed much to U.S. 40 and the car-centric culture of 20th century America. From World War II to the 1960s, motels and gas stations sprouted along the main road from Baltimore to Philadelphia to accommodate road-weary travelers. Diners served up coffee and gossip to neighbors and road-trippers alike on what was also the main local drag. But when Interstate 95 opened, running parallel to U.S. 40 just a few miles to the west, the flow of out-of-town cars slowed to a trickle.

The change is gradual but noticeable: Fewer wheels are traveling Harford County's back roads. But it's not from some miraculous traffic decrease - bicycling is on the rise, and Harford's travelers are making the switch from four wheels to two. For Neil Buchness, it started as a way to shake up his commute to work from South Bel Air to Abingdon. Two or three days a week, he'd take the roads with “nice wide shoulders, somewhat flat,” to the office, and “the next thing you know, you have four bikes in the garage.” Buchness is now the president of Chesapeake Spokes, a Harford County bicycling club that's grown from 40 to 200 members since it began four years ago. The bicycling increase is so tangible that in recent years the Harford County Department of Planning and Zoning has created a Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan, complete with a website due to launch this fall.
