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.

Editor: I am writing in response to an apparent dust-up over the use of rap lyrics on a t-shirt at Joppatowne High School. Unfortunately, I did not see the original letter to the editor on this subject, but I can comment on the mother-educator response. It disturbs me to read that a parent and educator would actually condone the use of this particular rap song, or any part of it in a school setting. This so called song contains foul language and atrocious grammar from start to finish as well as the use of the controversial "N" word; though in the so-called acceptable context we have been duped to believe is "artistic expression.

"I didn't want him where there was liquor stores on the corner," she said. But, Pair said, "It doesn't seem like it made a difference. " In October, her son, 16-year-old Derrick Wingate, was gunned down in front of their Edgewood home. The shooting was the second homicide in Edgewood this year and the sixth shooting in a twomile radius that Sheriff L. Jesse Bane said has been "a killing zone.
