  • Chamber Update

    Summer is here! June 21 marked the official beginning of summer, that magical time of the year when popsicles appear in the freezer, crabs are on the picnic table and fireflies light up the evening sky. The hum of a lawnmower is always in the background, and the excitement of summer camp and Vacation Bible School is brewing. It’s a special time for sure.
    One of our summer traditions in the Greater Severna Park area is the Fourth of July Parade. We hope you’ll join us at 10:00am on Tuesday, July 4, for this community event. If you have little ones and they’d like to participate in their own age-appropriate event, we have the Decorated Bike Contest. As far as I know, this...

  • A Look Inside This Year’s Budget

    If there is one word to describe this year’s budget season, it would be “inclusive.”
    Our process commenced in February and March when we began meeting with the public to better understand their priorities. At two town halls, our departments met face to face with constituents from across the county to discuss school funding, park improvements and other important community priorities.
    From there, our administration went to work to put forward a budget that would advance our goal of making Anne Arundel County the best place to live, work and start a business in Maryland. And in mid-June, the county council concurred with all of our major priorities, ensuring our accelerated...

  • Dental Implants Are Not Teeth

    Modern technology has given dentists more ways to replace teeth. For example, dental implants can replace teeth and secure dentures. What is best for the patient? What are the benefits and risks?
    Q: How can I have my missing, broken and diseased teeth replaced to look like and function like my original teeth?
    A: Consider the condition of the remaining teeth as well as overall oral health, cosmetics, durability, longevity, cost and number of dental visits required.
