    Resident: Abingdon Business Park not ‘constituent-friendly’

    The citizens of Abingdon first learned about the Abingdon Woods project in January when a sign was posted along Abingdon Road about 100 feet from the parsonage of St. Francis DeSales. The project has since been renamed the Abingdon Business Park, I suspect because there will be very few trees left...

    Letter: Sober living owners still owe community answers

    In the March 20 interview with New Points’ owners, not once did they address the actual complaint of the neighbors, which is that New Points built a sober living community with complete disregard of the Harford County Zoning Code. Instead, they deflect with the accusation that the neighborhood...

    Letter: Girl Scouts offer young women skills needed to be independent leaders

    The article entitled “New Opportunities Open for Girls Joining Cub Scouts, Scouts BSA” that was published in the Aegis on March 29, wasn’t representative of the Girl Scout experience.

    Letter: Ma & Pa Trail tree removal poorly planned

    The recent tree removal to create pedestrian access to the trail was absolutely poorly planned. Who was responsible for the design? They should be held liable for harming the land and the environment, and wildlife not to mention removing privacy from an existing development and ruining that section...

  • Resident: Not all Girl Scout experiences the same

    Resident: Not all Girl Scout experiences the same

    I was very upset reading your recent article titled  "New Opportunities open for Girls Joining Cub Scouts, Scouts BSA.” The opinions of girls and parents quoted were very different from my Girl Scout experience. Their opinion was based solely on the troop they were a member of. I was a Girl Scout...
