Folks who have moved here from other parts of the country quickly learn what we already know: Southern Maryland summers are brutally hot. And in St. Mary’s, scorching temperatures and their accompanying sweltering humidity can be hazardous for those who work outside. And it can be deadly for…

As names go, the Gov. Harry W. Nice Memorial/Senator Thomas “Mac” Middleton Bridge rolls off the tongue about as well as “supercalifragilisticexpialidocious” from “Mary Poppins,” and fits about as well on a sign, too. But whatever the span over the Potomac is called, it is finally getting th…

A rather expansive article in the Aug. 2 edition of The Enterprise headlined “Market for medical marijuana budding” portrayed a rather favorable view of the expanding market for marijuana in Maryland — in spite of its status as federally illegal and untested by the U.S. Food and Drug Adminis…

Next week, what will Maryland have in common with Alaska, Delaware, Montana, New Hampshire and Oregon? No sales tax. But remember, it’ll just be for a week here. The other five states offer that perk all year long.

The recent passing of Bob Waxman at age 93 offers an opportunity to examine the many contributions he made to the Navy and the country over more than a half-century of service. His many accolades have focused on his stewardship of Webster Field, significantly keeping it open when it was slat…

In June, my Labrador retriever, CC, went to heaven, and we will always miss her.

Community building, community partnerships and camaraderie sparkled on Aug. 6 at the J.P. Jarboe Family Center campus on Lex Woods Drive. It was that neighborhood’s National Night Out, an annual activity introduced across the United States in August 1984.

Thank you for publishing your very well-written editorial in the Friday, July 19, edition of The Enterprise headlined “Speaking your mind costs $2,439.48 here.”

I recently called the White House comment line, waited 10 minutes for an operator to answer, and once on the line, I asked to have the following message transmitted to the president:

During Columbus’ second voyage in 1493, a third of present-day Haiti’s population died. Historical revisionists blame Columbus for the deaths, without providing any context.

We commend The Enterprise for its excellent July 19 editorial about the retroactive financial penalty imposed on the St. Mary’s County Library by the county commissioners. The editorial rightly pointed out that not only did the commissioners completely disregard the First Amendment implicati…

I am writing in response to two letters to the editor, both in the Aug. 2 edition of The Enterprise: “Be skeptical of anyone who uses fear as a motivator regarding climate change” and “Could all this modern-day heat be due to global warming? Maybe, maybe not.”

Democrats are especially adept at changing their political terminology to suit their deceptive purposes. For example, multiculturalism gets relabeled as diversity. To disguise their advocacy of socialism and lessen public opposition, they commonly use the euphemism “regulated capitalism.”

During my sporadic dives into the world of tabletop games such as trading card games, living card games and other games of the sort, I soon noticed an annoying habit of all the players, even the most experienced ones. They tended to play their cards so that each card was upright from their p…
