  • Chamber Update

    In the mid ‘70s, Bill Gates dreamed of a world where there would be “a computer on every desk and in every home.” His dream didn’t quite happen overnight. In the early stages, computers were often used only as word processors and the internet was as uncharted as “space – the final frontier,” to use a “Star Trek” phrase.
    We did, however, begin to enjoy many innovations that would make our lives easier, more efficient and fun. Entering our homes was a steady stream of “toys” such as the PlayStation, touch-tone phones, LED watches, microwaves and many other wonderful things.
    Outside of our homes, we saw a rapid acceleration in...

  • Simple Sands is now open again during daytime and evening hours. Owner John Sparkman has fresh ideas for the menu and the future of his business.

    Operational Changes Haven’t Slowed Down Simple Sands

    The emails to John Sparkman poured in as people drove past Simple Sands at night only to see that the “open” sign was not illuminated. That trend continued from March 2017 until this fall, when the restaurateur was able to again open his store in the evening, extending close time from 3...

  • Farewell, Marjorie Holt

    Our county lost a legend recently. Former Rep. Marjorie Holt was an icon whose legacy continues to reverberate here in Anne Arundel County. For 14 years, she diligently served the Fourth District with honor and distinction, worked shamelessly across the aisle, and cared deeply for Maryland and specifically Anne Arundel County.
    Marjorie’s election helped break a longstanding glass ceiling for women in our county. As the first Republican woman from Maryland elected to Congress, she blazed a trail from Shady Side to Brooklyn Park that Anne Arundel women leaders have followed for decades.
    Marjorie will always be someone who took time to sit down and meet with me when I first considered...
  • News From The State House

    Noting the near-universal American pastime of complaining about taxes, I have been surprised at the level of ingratitude that has accompanied the federal tax cuts in December. Maryland politicians have repeatedly spoken of the need to protect the state from the “impact of the cuts,” as...
  • Frederick Douglass

    Maryland has an incredibly rich African-American history, which is now being recognized after so many centuries of being ignored. This year, we have the honor of celebrating the bicentennial of the birth of noted abolitionist, preacher, orator and statesman Frederick Douglass. Frederick Douglass...
  • What Federal Tax Reform Means For Maryland

    When Congress passed the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act in December, it left many unanswered questions. Who will benefit? Who will be harmed? Will corporate tax relief really boost the economy and have trickle-down effects, despite past failures? Will tax bills go down for the long haul or will it be...

  • The Eco-Friendly Dental Office

    Modern technology has given dentists more ways and means to practice dentistry while maintaining exceptional patient care. Most of these improvements are also better for the environment.
    Q: What is Eco-Friendly Dentistry?
    A: I take this question to mean, “What can dentists do to help the environment through reduction of waste and pollution?” The answer is: the same as everyone. There is a need to reduce, reuse and recycle.
