Probably no one is surprised that I am a union member. I am now a retired employee. I worked for the Department of Veterans Affairs (Veterans Administration until it become a cabinet level agency in 1990) for over 40 years. There are no more deserving citizens in this country.

I want to reach out and thank all of the caregivers in the health care industry, friends and family included. My son, Quinton Dillard, recently had major surgery at the world renown Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore.

Last week, in a conference call with leadership from Maryland’s Counties, Governor Hogan emphasized two very important points about this COVID-19 national emergency. First, what we are experiencing right now is unprecedented. Second, as government officials, the work we are doing to address …

According to the Statista Research Department, the United states has the largest number of incarcerated individuals in the world. China is in second place, Brazil in third place and Russia in fourth place. There are many in “re-education camps” who are not classified as prisoners. I was surp…

I am writing in response to the article titled “Legislation would usher in zero-emission transit buses,” published in your newspaper, the Maryland Independent, March 6, on page A4. Gov. Larry Hogan’s idea for Maryland’s bus fleet to become 50% zero-emission by 2030 which is laid out in Maryl…
