J im Donaldson is 38 years old, the separated single father to 8-year-old Jacob and “5-going-on-35”-year-old Lily. Until recently, he had a good job with a large oil company. But when his son got croup that developed into pneumonia three years ago, all that changed. Donaldson asked for time off and was denied.  “I had to choose between the job and the child,” he recalls. “It was a very easy decision. You can replace a job, but you can't replace a child.” But losing that job started a downward spiral that was hard to stop.

The Cal Ripken World Series has been a highlight of summertime in Harford County for a dozen years. People in the community step up and provide housing for players, some of whom travel from as far away as is possible to get and still be on earth. As a result of this tradition, there always are some local people cheering extra hard for whatever teams are playing. It's a wonderful expression of hope for the future insofar as it brings people from many cultures together to share good times and good sports.

With very little notice being taken in Harford County, one of the most widely-observed holidays on earth was celebrated this week: Eid ul-Fitr. The movable feast was observed on Tuesday as people of the Islamic faith celebrated the conclusion of the holy month of Ramadan, whose beginning and end each year also are variable. During Ramadan, Muslims fast during the daylight hours, perform works of service and generally renew their faith. For most people in Harford County, the observance of Ramadan and its traditions have been rather mysterious.

A chain-link fence marks the edge of Aberdeen Proving Ground, an Army installation where a nationwide base reorganization was supposed to bring so many people and jobs to Harford County that officials worried they would not have the space or resources to meet demand. Inside the fence, an estimated 21,000 people report to work, conducting research in massive new buildings. Shots fire in the distance. Sometimes bombs explode. But outside the fence, gleaming new offices completed in anticipation of economic spillover stand empty, a reminder that any growth that's taken place growth remains tightly contained.

Letter to The Aegis | July 17, 2014
Editor: Please allow me to introduce myself. I am Donte' Lamont Hickman, the Pastor of the Southern Baptist Church. I have been the Pastor of Southern for 12 year, and since I began as Pastor, we have implemented a vision and mission driven church committed to community outreach and transformation. About four years ago we began a multi-site church in Harford County. We had members who already lived in Harford County and we wanted to provide another ministry presence and option for established and new residents of Harford County.  Interestingly enough, the first place I came to look for a facility to hold services in was Joppatowne.

Wayne and Wende Allen found a second home, their vacation escape, in a convenient location - 24 miles from their Harford County home. "Most of our friends who have second homes have them at the beach, in the mountains down south," said Wende Allen, a 46-year-old physician's assistant at a fertility clinic in Bel Air. "That's where you typically think your vacation home should be, hours away. But we have found our paradise retreat in our same county, our same comfortable community; yet it feels like we've escaped.
