For many years the county has plowed snow outward in Esperanza Circle, covering our mailboxes, preventing mail delivery, making driveways impassable and creating safety issues in case of emergencies where residents could not get out. This is rare and applies only to deeper snows and to a uni…

I disagree with the notion that ignorance is bliss. The lack of knowledge can cause us to make poor decisions, dangerous decisions and even decisions with eternal consequence. Mike Thompson’s Dec. 21 letter titled “We cannot make God into what we want. God is who he is already” is an example…

For one day I am asking for my fellow U.S. citizens to put politics aside and think about what is happening today. Don’t get me wrong, there are a lot of other issues to worry about that some may deem more important, but my focus is on the historic government shutdown. There were some 800,00…

If you know nothing of the 50-year history of the anti-gun movement, you might find Diane McGowan’s Dec. 14 letter, “Common-sense measures need not infringe on responsible gun owners’ constitutional rights,” a seemingly reasonable discourse on the subject. However, who will be the arbiter of…

I fail to see where being fiscally hawkish and asking about responsible management of county tax funds magically transmogrifies to being “anti-gun.” It seems reasonable to ask politicians to exercise fiduciary responsibility and financial restraint when it comes to spending commonly sourced …

It has come to my attention that a local national historic site is under threat. Oxon Cove Park and Oxon Hill Farm are headed for the bulldozer under the guidance of Gov. Larry Hogan (R). This national park on the shores of the Potomac River where children from the cities and suburbs can go …
