| April 30, 2021, 06:00 PM

Since Governor Hogan ended the Covid-19 lockdown in 2020, Maryland and Anne Arundel County businesses, restaurants, bars, and churches have been open to the public at reduced capacity. When Anne Arundel County Executive Steuart Pittman ordered another restaurant lockdown last December, Governor Hogan literally rolled his eyes and said there was, “ no scientific basis […]

This year’s National Volunteer Appreciation Week (April 18 to 24) has special meaning. Since COVID-19 hit our communities, we have spent the last 13 months learning to adapt.

Guest Column: Anchors Aweigh! Why I’m Running for County Executive

| April 07, 2021, 05:50 PM

I’m running for Anne Arundel County Executive because I love this county, and the people who live here; I can’t bear to watch it systematically destroyed by either an incompetent ideologue, or a political machine with its own selfish agenda. We can do better, and I’ll do a better job for you than anyone else. […]

“In the present crisis, government is not the solution to the problem; government is the problem.” Ronald Reagan. It’s about saving lives. Follow the science. We’re all in this together. For almost a year, state and county governments have chanted this COVID-19 mantra to justify closing or restricting businesses, classrooms, churches and individual freedoms. But […]

OPINION: The Painful Truth

OPINION: The Painful Truth

| February 03, 2021, 09:00 AM

Will Rogers famously noted that, “A remark generally hurts in proportion to its truth.” This became apparent last week, when Governor Larry Hogan said that County Executive Steuart Pittman’s Health Officer, Nilesh Kalyanaraman, “Didn’t know what he was talking about,” regarding public school reopening. Pittman’s indignation was an indication of the remark’s painful truth, as […]

The other protest in Washington

| January 18, 2021, 08:00 AM

They came from all over America. Tens of thousands of them. They had been wronged. They wanted justice. Many of the states they lived in violated or ignored election laws. Courts had ignored or dismissed their law suits repeatedly. They wanted their votes to be counted. They wanted Congress to listen to them, and fix […]

A Perfect Christmas

A Perfect Christmas

| December 24, 2020, 06:06 PM

There’s a lot of stress during the Holidays, especially this year. I think, in large measure, it’s because most of us want to make Christmas as perfect as a Hallmark movie for those we love. We worry about details that take on an importance far beyond their significance; we literally can’t see the forest for […]

OPINION: “Division Delays Recovery”, Pittman wants it both ways

| December 22, 2020, 04:33 PM

Anne Arundel County Executive Steuart Pittman recently chastised those who challenged his December 10th lockdown order in court with the admonition, “Division delays recovery.” Pittman seems to have forgotten that disagreement with a County Executive who’s dictated every facet of our lives by decree for nine months is not “division”; it’s democracy. Pittman got a […]

The last nine months have shone a spotlight on the importance of advanced care planning as families struggled to care for loved ones suddenly facing a life-limiting illness and unable to express their healthcare wishes.

OPINION: Back to class-a prudent risk

“All courses of action are risky, so prudence is not in avoiding all danger (it’s impossible), but calculating risk and acting decisively.” Niccolo Machiavelli Anne Arundel kids are headed back to classrooms in November. That’s a win for children, parents, and science over the teacher’s union, the Pittman administration, and politics. It should’ve happened in […]

The timely mail-in payment of county residents’ property tax bills during the COVID-19 pandemic has become more difficult.

If County Executive Pittman and Health Office Dr. Kalyanaraman want to get serious about getting control of the COVID-19 pandemic in our county, they need to close a gaping loophole.
