I believe Horacio Moronta’s March 8 letter, “’Squeaking’ back against the Israel lobby’s stranglehold over politicians,” against the condemnation effort in the House of Representatives of Rep. Omar and the way money buys politicians is unfortunately on target.

Recall that U.S. Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch was accused of plagiarizing others in a book he wrote, and in a law journal.

Next month is Alcohol Awareness Month. Founded and sponsored by Facing Addiction with the National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence, this year’s theme is “Help for Today, Hope for Tomorrow.”

I was very saddened to read the March 6 editorial in The Calvert Recorder in support of physician-assisted suicide. I am troubled that the terminology has been softened to “medical aid in dying,” which implied to me palliative care, which accompanies people in their passage from this life.

The National Socialist German Workers’ Party, aka Nazi Party, was founded in 1919 and abolished in 1945. With Adolf Hitler as leader, this party seized control of Germany in 1933 and systematically eliminated rights like freedom of speech, religion, press, assembly, petition and the right to…

I saw the March 13 letter urging legislators to end the ban on Sunday hunting in Maryland. The first sentence speaks to “world-class waterfowl and deer hunting.”

Driving through Southern Maryland, I am often in awe of its beauty, with its large swaths of land both planted and natural. It shows the care and forethought past generations have left for our benefit. Often, I see trees that are two and three times larger than the homes around them, but wha…

Colorectal cancer affects both men and women; in fact, it is the second leading cause of cancer deaths in Maryland. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, “More lives are lost each year to colon cancer than to breast cancer and AIDS combined.” An alarming fact, when 90 …

If you recently noticed a slight shiver in the continuum, it was the universe reacting to the passing of one of the greatest minds in American history. Lyndon LaRouche, by far the most adept political economist since Alexander Hamilton, passed into eternity on Tuesday, Feb. 12. He extolled t…

Maryland is home to world-class waterfowl and deer hunting. Hunting has been part of our heritage since the very beginning. The Chesapeake region and Susquehanna Flats go hand in hand with Maryland’s and the nation’s tradition of waterfowl hunting.

This letter was sent to Maryland elected officials, and a copy was sent to The Calvert Recorder.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R) of California threatened punishment for Rep. Ilhan Omar (D) of Minnesota for her criticisms of Israel, which I believe to be an apartheid, murderous and most oppressive regime in that region. I find it amazing how much time U.S. so-called political le…

I carefully went over the entire December 2018 Calvert County Comprehensive Plan, the planning commission’s recommended plan, looking at the marked-up version of the May comprehensive plan showing changes made. With each page I became more and more disappointed. I have read the many, many th…

I’m as sympathetic to those federal government workers who were impacted by the recent shutdown as I am disgusted and angry at our elected officials for not being able to negotiate a compromise over the budget that would have prevented this fiasco in the first place (and by compromise, I don…

With Southern Maryland’s solar growing 14 percent in 2018, there are now 5,700 substantial solar panel systems installed and working in the Southern Maryland Electric Cooperative footprint. It is estimated that all systems installed within this footprint generate between 3 and 5 percent of o…

As a lifelong resident and taxpayer for over 50 years, I was delighted to finally enjoy the benefits of my taxes by using the aquatic center and golf course. Until then, most of my taxes went for the benefit of children, and I have none. Those who disagree with the purchase of the golf cours…
