It has been interesting to read the different opinions on naming Joppa. My wife and I had the privilege several years ago to go to Europe on a business award. It was interesting to learn as we drove around France that the local roads aren't named as in America but are really directions. When you come to an intersection you see arrowed signs that have the places they go to on them. So coming from opposite directions you might see a different name. Then I started to wonder is that what we did in the U.S. would assume over time instead of the road that goes to Bel Air it became Belair Road (Philadelphia road, Frederick road, etc….)

As she enters her 80s, Margaret Himes looks to her garden for solace. She started the expansive garden behind her house in the fall of 1967, just a few months after she, her husband and their three children moved into the new home in Joppatowne. Himes and her then-2-year-old daughter, Patty, planted tulips in the backyard that first autumn. When they came up the next spring, Patty asked if they could plant flowers every year. Patty, who suffered from a congenital heart ailment, died later that year, but Himes continued to work in the garden.

Joppatowne officials were forced to postpone Friday night's homecoming football game against Havre de Graceuntil Monday because of a power outage at the school. “I came in at 6:45 [a.m.] and the cafeteria ladies were standing out front. I thought, 'This can't be good,'” Mariners coach John Horgan said. “When I left, BG&E was there with a backhoe, so I don't even know if we could have played last night. I don't know if the power was restored.” Classes were dismissed at 9:15 Friday morning.

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.

Thursday's much-anticipated girls basketball rematch between Aberdeen and host Joppatowne turned out to be a lopsided 82-40 win for the visiting Eagles, who stayed unbeaten in the Chesapeake Division of the Upper Chesapeake Bay Athletic Conference. Aberdeen, 19-0, division champions at 10-0 and ranked No. 1, used its relentless full-court press to force the Mariners (16-4, 9-2) into numerous turnovers throughout the first half. The Eagles led 31-8 after one quarter, 45-21 at the half and 68-38 after three quarters.

I am writing in response to the editorial dated 1.15.2014 titled "Details, details. " My opposition to the purchase of the Havre de Grace property is that this entire property, not just "one of the properties" are contaminated. The statement, "contamination concerns seem to have been addressed," is not true. Who will take the contaminated top soil from the 4.585 acres and at what cost? Where will they put it? Who will cover the cost? When you put down two feet of new clean top soil, will the contaminated soil under this new soil leach up into the fresh top soil?

I am appalled at the two candidates for the upcoming Primary Election in June, one in each of the two major parties in this county: a Republican and a Democrat. The Republican is County Executive David Craig. He ignored the needs and petitions of voters in the southwest corner of the county: Joppa and Edgewood, District A in not championing the purchase of the Joppatowne pool property that would have ultimately served all of District A not just Joppatowne. Instead, [he championed]

I just wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed your column about the local history of the Joppa Town area last week. I especially hadn't known the part about the once flourishing port that had to be abandoned along with others along the northern bay and Bush River. Having grown up in Catonsville myself, I was also familiar with your comparing the modern version (1960s onward) with Columbia in Howard County, which was planned and built at about the same time. One more interesting personal thing was that I began my professional teaching career at Havre de Grace High School in 1973.

Lakeia Hayden and her fellow Aberdeen guards always look to the inside for their advantage. Thursday night, they found it in 6-foot-3 center Bri Jones as usual, but also in running the floor. The No. 3 Eagles got 28 points and 30 rebounds from Jones and they converted some easy transition buckets late in the third quarter to take a lead over No. 2 Joppatowne that they would never give up. With their 65-59 victory, the visiting Eagles ended Joppatowne's 35-game winning streak, which had been the area's longest active run. The defending Class 1A state champion Mariners had their last lead at 43-41 late in the third quarter, but the Eagles converted three straight turnovers, including two on nice feeds from Hayden in transition, to spark an 18-3 run lasting halfway through the fourth quarter.

As taken from the pages of The Aegis dated Thursday, March 12, 1964: Residents were urged 50 years ago not to get alarmed if they noticed four foot squares painted in white on highways or in fields. The Harford County Metropolitan Commission hired Maps Inc. of Dundalk to take aerial photographs of the county from 3,000 feet. The square markers were placed at 130 different locations in the county by the U.S. Coast and Geodetic Survey. Once complete, the aerial maps could be put together and elevations could be better recorded.
