From all indications, Harford County has enough registered voters to qualify for two additional early voting sites for next year's presidential election. The state's threshold to qualify for the additional sites is 150,000 voters. That number was reached in the past week. The county's top election official says the Harford Board of Elections plans to recommend to the state board that early voting sites be designated inAberdeen and Edgewood to go along with the existing site inBel Air. We respectfully disagree with such reasoning.

With four vineyards conveniently located in practically each corner of Harford County, you don't have to travel all the way to Sonoma to sip award-winning wines, experience scenic vistas and learn all about the winemaking process. In 2010, Harford County government, along with Baltimore County government and the Maryland Winery Association, created the Piedmont Wine Trail “in hopes that people would cross county borders and spend more time (and money in local businesses) in their quest for good wine,” according to Wini Roche, tourism and marketing manager for Harford County government.

An aquatics center is the latest splash at the Walter & Betty Ward Family Center Y in Abingdon. As part of a $3.5 million expansion of the Harford County facility, the aquatics center includes two indoor pools: a lap pool and a warm-water family pool. Renovations to the center also include more multipurpose areas and space for youth activities, as well as additional parking and an outdoor patio adjacent to the indoor pool. In a letter to Y members, center director Suzanne Green and president and CEO John K. Hoey wrote, “We hope that these additions will enhance your Y experience, while allowing more families, youth and seniors in Harford County to become more active and engaged in their community.” The Walter & Betty Ward Family Center Y is located at 101 Walter Ward Blvd., in Abingdon.

Letter to The Aegis | February 1, 2013
Editor: I agree wholeheartedly with Lisa Muller's letter, "Making a case for better bus service in Harford County," published Jan. 25 in The Aegis. We need bigger buses and more buses that run more often. We need shelters at bus stops. We need better treatment of disabled and senior citizen bus passengers, and as for weekend service, Harford County buses don't even run on Saturdays! In the past few years, Harford County's population has grown by leaps and bounds, but as for public transportation, it's like we're living in the day of the stagecoach!
