Three cheers for the wildlife officials who tracked a bear cub in McHenry for three days to remove a bucket that was stuck on the animal's head. It's a reminder that litter can be deadly: Some animals die slowly from dehydration, starvation or suffocation, others are struck by traffic or att…

As Election Day draws near, the League of Women Voters of Queen Anne’s County would like to remind our citizens of the importance of going to the polls to exercise your right to vote and make your voice heard.

Carrie O'Connor is a more than friendly, local, pretty face, that always seems to find a reason to smile: she is a creative problem solver and deserves a permanent seat on the Board of Education.

Recently, there was a front page story in our local paper about Congressman Andy Harris visiting a company in Cambridge. I recalled his visit to my company in 2010 when he stopped by my office unannounced. He said he was running for Congress. He said he would work on behalf of small businesses.

The information under a photo about the American Legion Riders event published in the September 28, 2018 edition is incorrect. The people shown in the photo are not members of the American Legion Riders, just people who attended. Also, we are not a “Motorcycle Club,” We are Jeff Davis Post 1…

As we search for ways to remedy the traffic problems created by the Bay Bridge, I’m reminded of the electric utility industry’s great success with “Time of Use” rates. In the 1970s, electric companies faced demands on their energy supply during peak-use periods, so rather than build costly n…

As an Eastern Shore native and as a wife, mother, daughter, sister, and constituent, I am honored and humbled to be a Democratic candidate for Maryland’s District 36 House of Delegates. The support and feedback I have received from constituents from all sides of the aisle and walks of life i…

Where’s the outrage? I asked that question about a year ago. I was naïve to think that all it would take for Americans to become outraged is a president that is an inept, vulgar, racist, corrupt, misogynistic, unpatriotic sociopath. That some Americans are still not outraged is unconscionabl…

I welcome the traffic control recommendation made by the Queen Anne’s commissioners in a meeting with the State on Sept. 18. This plan would direct weekend beach traffic off Kent Island roads on summer weekends. By using a special Queen Anne’s County car sticker, a series of turn signs, and …

Beyond the widely reported devastating impacts of Hurricane Florence on the Carolinas, there is one more — of the self-inflicted variety.

Last Friday I witnessed a road rage incident on High Street in which an aggressive individual verbally and physically assaulted a victim who had double-parked to get coffee.

Community college was a lifeline for me as a mother and full-time dairy farmer. It provided an opportunity to pursue a degree and continue on to a Master’s Degree. Not only was it affordable, the location allowed me to do “everything” efficiently.

Recently QAC residents received a flyer from the MDSEA (Maryland State Education Association) telling us to ask the commissioners to yet again increase school funding.

Last month’s influx of woody debris, plastic bottles, and tires littering our shorelines is a stark reminder that there’s more work to do to restore the Chesapeake Bay to health. And while it’s a startling scene on the surface, science shows that the constant flow of invisible nitrogen and p…

As a concerned Maryland citizen and long-time resident of District 1, I am gravely disappointed in the voting record of Rep. Andy Harris. I strongly feel that Mr. Jesse Colvin will do a much better job for us all. My own family proudly served the USA during World War II and my father, a Navy…

Rep. Harris has told us to ignore the press conference held in Helsinki, because of the unfriendliness of the free press. Instead, he tells us to concentrate on the summit itself.
