Westminster students take politics into their own hands with mock debate, voting

Presidential election results will be in a bit earlier for students at Westminster High School. Students in all four grades at Westminster participated in a two-part assembly during which two groups got to debate current political issues. On one side of the stage sat six students representing Republican issues; on the other, five students representing Democratic issues. Ninth- and 11th-grade students attended the first assembly, 10th- and 12th-graders the second.

Donating a kidney was 'the best decision I ever made'

On May 3, I lost one of my closest friends. Tom Barrett died of multiple myeloma at the age of 55. However, Tom lived much longer than he might have, thanks to two kidney donations, one at the age of 20 and the other at the age of 43. His sister donated her kidney to him while he was a college student at the University of Virginia. I donated mine while we were both professors in the history department at St. Mary's College of Maryland. It was the best decision I ever made.

It's senior week in Ocean City. Many parents rationalize the getaway as a well-deserved week of respite from the rigors of academic pressure their teenagers have endured for four years.

Laurel water walkers find their stride at Fairland pool

The sun's first rays gently filtered through the towering windows at Fairland Sports and Aquatics Complex on Old Gunpowder Road in West Laurel. Outside, most of the parking spots reserved for vehicles with disability placards were taken. Inside, in yeoman-like fashion, a small group of determined individuals glided effortlessly in waist-deep water. This was a Tuesday gathering of the early-morning water walking group at the popular facility.

Media wrong all along on Trump

Despite the latest primary results from "Western Tuesday" this week, the question remains: "What do we make of Donald Trump?" The answer is as roiled now as it has been for the past 10 months. From pundits to politicians to the professional prognosticators in the mass media, nobody knows. But that doesn't stop them from making spectacularly bad predictions.
