Harford County, grappling with development pressures and school crowding issues, will see its roads, parks and other services further strained by the influx of new federal workers in the coming years. Its elected officials will need to be both disciplined and creative in providing for newcomers and protecting the quality of life enjoyed by their constituents. County executive: Republican David R. Craig, appointed county executive last year to fill out the term of James M. Harkins, has had hands-on experience where it counts.

Five young men were stabbed late Saturday in Edgewood, the Harford County sheriff's office said Sunday. Sheriff's deputies were called to the 400 block of Meadowood Drive just before midnight and found two stabbing victims, a 22-year-old with chest injuries trying to help a 19-year-old with multiple wounds, said Monica Worrell, a spokeswoman for the sheriff's office. A third victim, an 18-year-old who also had been stabbed in the chest, then approached the scene, she said. The young men said they were attacked while walking to a friend's house in the Windsor Valley neighborhood from a gas station in the 1700 block of Hanson Road.

Bel Air Pediatric Dentistry recently opened an office in Bel Air to provide comprehensive dental care for infants, children and adolescents. Husband and wife doctors Kapil and Vidhima "Sheena" Davar, who specialize in pediatric dentistry, and the staff at Bel Air Pediatric Dentistry offer early dental care and sedation dentistry for patients from infancy through age 20. "Early dental care can provide a lifetime of healthy smiles. Children should see a pediatric dentist when their first tooth appears, usually between 6 and 12 months of age, and no later than their first birthday," Kapil Davar said.

I was outraged by Harford County's decision to open schools on Monday despite the severe weather conditions, thus putting our children, bus drivers, teachers and vehicles at risk ( "Sleet, snow snares roads in Harford, closes schools early," Feb. 3). All day Sunday the forecasts remained dire, and as late as 2 a.m. there was essentially no change. If anything, the picture was getting worse. The possibility of extreme weather was clear as a bell. I understand that weather forecasting is not a promise of what's going to happen, but it's also not a game of chance with only money to lose.

Editorial from The Aegis | January 29, 2013
The average citizen could be forgiven for failing to understand the way taxpayer money gets spent at the state and county level. It's as complex as a spider web, and about as easy to get tangled in. As of this week, Harford County Executive David R. Craig was getting ready to put together a spending plan for the year that begins July 1 (not Jan. 1, as the year does for most of us). His initial citizens input meeting was supposed to have been Monday, but that was delayed because of the weather.
