  • Letter: Pension proposal by Kamenetz a gamble for county

    The purpose of this letter is to express my strong objection to Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz's proposal to float a $250 million Pension Obligation Bond (POB). Words make it difficult to accurately express my opposition. I believe that it...
  • Towson Library looks at ballot issues in discussion series

    The League of Women Voters and the Towson branch of the Baltimore County Public Library have scheduled several discussions, starting Thursday, on referendums that will appear on the Nov. 6 ballot. A panel will delve into Perspectives on the Dream Act,...
  • President Obama has steered the nation wisely through troubled times

    I was flabbergasted by Stanley Glinka's recent letter criticizing President Obama's performance in office ("Obama made U.S. weaker, more vulnerable," Oct. 31). He obviously lives in a different country than the rest of us. Let me point out that over...
  • Calling Obama on his lie: Bush tax cuts did not cause the economic crisis

    Calling Obama on his lie: Bush tax cuts did not cause the economic crisis
    "Now Gov. Romney believes that with even bigger tax cuts for the wealthy, and fewer regulations on Wall Street, all of us will prosper. In other words, he'd double down on the same trickle-down policies that led to the crisis in the first place." --...
  • Congressional candidate profiles

    MEET THE CANDIDATES   When Marylanders head to the polls Nov. 6, they will elect members of the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives in addition to casting their ballots for president. Dozens of people are running for a chance to represent the...
  • Letter: Wake up, Howard County, Obama has failed

    Letter after letter is published in your paper supporting the president, despite the fact that they are all just regurgitated talking points of the Democrat Party. The latest is the new 7.8 percent unemployment rate. Nothing could be further from the...

    Students trapped by high debt, low wages
    Based on estimates by the Federal Reserve, for the first time in U.S. history, student-loan debt ($867 billion) has surpassed credit card debt ($704 billion). These debt levels have real implications for productivity and lifetime earnings for this current...
  • Rodricks: Thousands of undocumented workers pay state taxes

    Under the Maryland Dream Act, students who want to attend our community colleges or public universities at the in-state tuition rate must have attended a Maryland high school for at least three years. They must prove that their families filed state income...
  • Lois W. Uram, bank accountant

    Lois W. Uram, a retired Mercantile-Safe Deposit & Trust Co. accountant, died Oct. 9 of complications from dementia at Gilchrist Hospice in Towson. She was 82. The daughter of a certified public accountant and a homemaker, Lois A. Weidemuller was born and...
  • Obama and bin Laden: Who wouldn't have given the order?

    I was not surprised that die hard Democrat Mel Mintz is supporting the re-election of President Obama ("Romney is this year's Dewey," Sept. 5), but the reasons he gives for his support are amusing. He must be living in some other country. First, he...
  • There's a reason the economy isn't generating jobs

    There's a reason the economy isn't generating jobs
    The economy added 96,000 jobs in August, down from 141,000 in July and not nearly enough to keep pace with population growth. The unemployment rate fell to 8.1 percent only because 581,000 workers quit looking for work and are no longer counted in the...
  • After 30 years, Rouse's Enterprise is adapting to financial challenges

    After 30 years, Rouse's Enterprise is adapting to financial challenges
