  • Roller coaster ride [Editorial]

    Roller coaster ride [Editorial]

    It’s been dry, really dry, and somewhat hot. Before that it was somewhat dry and really, really hot. In the spring, it was rainy and cool; really rainy and unseasonably cool. For many of us, the weather is a great topic of conversation, something to be happy about, something to groan about or something...

  • Bel Air Independence Day Committee chair thanks all who made a great celebration possible [Letter]

    Bel Air Independence Day Committee chair thanks all who made a great celebration possible [Letter]

    Editor: The Bel Air Independence Day Committee, Inc. hosted a terrific family-oriented event. I want to thank everyone who came out to participate in our events. Most of our activities provide an opportunity for families to go somewhere fun on the 4th of July. Given all of the families that I saw...

  • Check on the elderly, especially in hot weather [Letter]

    Check on the elderly, especially in hot weather [Letter]

    Editor: Heat exhaustion can sneak up on you, causing increased body temperature, rapid pulse, headache and fatigue. If you don’t get cool, you’ll dehydrate, possibly suffer a stroke, or worse, die. Of 8,000-plus heat-related fatalities reported annually in the United States, 36 percent are among...

  • Hard look needed at election problems in Maryland [Editorial]

    Hard look needed at election problems in Maryland [Editorial]

    Maryland’s primary election process is so flawed that it nearly turns the political views of its electorate, even the pitiful few who do bother to turn out, into worthless votes. There’s a myriad of flaws in the process. Those flaws may exacerbate the decades-long concern of less than acceptable...

  • Some are unhappy [Editorial]

    Some are unhappy [Editorial]

    Any agency, committee, organization or group that gets nearly 100 percent participation of its members won’t be able to keep each one satisfied. That’s human nature. Keeping all of the people happy all of the time is impossible, so said no less an authority than Abraham Lincoln, who was credited...

  • Thanks to all for another memorable Bel Air 4th [Letter]

    Thanks to all for another memorable Bel Air 4th [Letter]

    Editor: On behalf of the Bel Air Independence Day Committee, Inc., I wish to thank the greater Bel Air and Harford County community for its support of and response to the 2018 Bel Air July 4th Independence Day Parade. As I’ve said over the years — and I have been the Bel Air July 4th Parade Chairman...

  • Our next generation [Editorial]

    Our next generation [Editorial]

    Ours is a diverse community. But as different as we are, and as much as things change, there’s much that’s eerily similar. Just as importantly, there’s a great desire to keep much about our lives the same. We’ll choose to note a couple of the more positive aspects of modern American life in Harford...

  • Being 'uncivil' starts at the top with Trump [Letter]

    Being 'uncivil' starts at the top with Trump [Letter]

    Editor: With regard to Ed Garano's Letter "Fox News provides balance, civility" (The Aegis, Wednesday June 27). The criticisms that Mr. Garono attributed to the major networks and liberals should more accurately be attributed to President Trump. He is "over the top as possible in criticism and...

  • Regardless of where we came from, our goal has been freedom [Letter]

    Regardless of where we came from, our goal has been freedom [Letter]

    As a Democrat I find the letter by Anthony Lambros (Aegis, Wednesday, June 27) an insult. First, as a Republican he throws me into a group of people called liberals and then calls himself a conservative. Considering Liberal is derived from the word Liberty, I wish to thank him for the compliment....

  • Fox News' many omissions and commissions [Letter]

    Fox News' many omissions and commissions [Letter]

    Editor: Ed Garono’s Aegis letter Jun 27, “Fox News provides balance, civility”, prompts me to want to list the many Fox omissions and commissions in its coverage of the Trump presidency and the myriad of violations of the norms of American Democracy and expert opinion on economic and foreign policy....
