DD, what is the nescessity of that comment? It has nothing to do with this article.

Just because some of the KKK supports the efforts does not mean that they are the volunteers in anyRead More way.

The Dundalk Renaissance Corp. is a proud partner in the series of free Movies in the Park for theRead More community. This sold-out Dive-In movie is the last of the season - and we thank our sponsors, Margreta at the Y Aquatic Center, and Angel Ball for their work to make these family evenings happen!

Additionally, updating our current stormwater management systems will also stop the millions ofRead More dollars in damage being caused to property owners who live along our waterways from massive erosion due to these streams being forced to continuously carry excessive volumes of fast moving water. This erosion causes trees to fall (One of these trees broke the Back River Trash boom last year) further blocking up the stream and a large amount of sediment (Another Chesapeake Bay TMDL value) to flow into Back River and the Chesapeake Bay. So while I completely agree with you that education and personal responsibility is imperative, I believe an upgraded stormwater management system (like those received by other parts of Baltimore County) is equally of paramount importance for the health of our community and the Chesapeake Bay.

The problem was identified as shopping carts, port holes etc. I don't feel changes to the stormRead More drains will significantly help with those issues. I worked for the save the bay foundation and the problem was identified as having two main prongs. One was lawn fertilizer run-off (chem-lawn etc) which promoted plant growth on the bottom which then depleted the oxygen. The second was bilge being pumped out of ships using the bay with various assorted toxic chemicals and lubricants. Storm drain size and condition did not factor into this equation. Just for your information, no system could contain the natural flow of storm run-off adaquately and to even try would be a large waste of money. That is taxpayers money which is a tad bit short these days. Stopping the problems at the source was identified as the solution and the only solution that would affect change. But again we're not talking about save the bay issues here, but rather large debris being tossed. And again that is the responsibility of those who enforce the law. Without the law there is nothing that can work. Which was my point. We need to build healthy communities where folks realize the importance of adherence to the laws.

Mr. Day since you previously worked for “Save the Bay Foundation” I am very surprisedRead More this is the first you have heard of Bread and Cheese Creek. Since 2009 our creek has been identified by the Baltimore County Small Watershed Action Plan (SWAP) as one of the most polluted tributaries of the Chesapeake Bay. Additionally we regularly work with the Alliance for the Chesapeake Bay, the Ocean Conservancy, American Rivers as well as many other similar organizations who do believe retrofitting our current stormwater management system would significantly decrease the trash, erosion and chemical infiltration going directly into Bread and Cheese Creek. Furthermore, most of Baltimore County has already had their stormwater management systems retrofitted; do you not believe the people of Dundalk should receive the same benefit of the other residents of Baltimore County? Lastly, since you have admittedly only recently heard of our creek, I invite you to attend our next cleanup in the stream, walk its length (as we do regularly), spend some time working alongside the volunteers giving up their time to save this beautiful little stream, talk to all the neighbors who live along the stream and hear of their property damage and how they still pay taxes on land that no longer exists

Ask any emergency responder who has been at the scene of a major incident - a hot or cold drink andRead More a hot dog can make a huge difference. These people don't get the attention they deserve for running the coffee wagons in the County. Way to go, Frank! Good luck.
jack amrhein September 11, 2012 at 05:41 pm
I agree Mark! These men and women are a God send on cold night and hot days, providing drinks andRead More snacks to keep us going on emergency scenes. I cant say enough good things about them.
Barbara Huber September 12, 2012 at 03:04 pm
I think they should set up at Essex Day and ask for donations.
Brandie Jefferson September 6, 2012 at 02:48 pm
Eric, you can call Small Miracles at 410-461-0516. Let us know if it works out!

Eric, you can visit smallmiraclesrescue.org to learn more about the shelter, our adoption process,Read More fees, adoption hours and directions. The fee for pups is $300, payable by cash or check. Adoption fees cover the cost of care and veterinary services. All adoptable animals have received a veterinary exam, spay/neuter surgery, distemper vaccine, rabies vaccine if age appropriate, preventative stool check, de-wormer and flea prevention medication. Dogs also receive a heartworm test, Lyme disease test and Bordatella vaccine. We are open tonight (Thursday) from 5-8 p.m., Friday from 11-3 and 5-8 p.m., Saturday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sunday from noon to 3 p.m. We don't accept holds, and hopefully this puppy will find a home soon, so I suggest coming in to meet him ASAP. You can get a jump start on the process by filling out our application and bringing it with you: http://smallmiraclesrescue.org/docs/adoption_application.pdf. Thanks! Liz Schroen Volunteer

Any idea what breed the father was? Wondering how big this puppy will grow to be.
Buzz Beeler September 4, 2012 at 01:26 pm
Judging by the heavy weights that showed up on National Night Out, I would say they are one of theRead More best in Dundalk. As a community they are voices to be reckoned with.

Did anybody criticize Benny Hill for slappin' that little "old-bald-headed-white-man"Read More around? No....Why? ...'cause it was funny!!! There was no race card involved...you're right "everyone should put aside the race card!"...these days you just can't say anything where people take issue with it!...tough beans!!!

Why was my comment rejected okay site run by a group of racist
Edward August 4, 2012 at 09:48 am
His sunglasses pretty much took care of that and definitely suspicious to see someone riding with aRead More bike in tow, now that they mention it.
john merkle October 10, 2012 at 02:15 pm
On the flip-side there were a group of whites circling a block on bikes, in the photo the white kidRead More was limping, clothes torn, busted eye and, standing in a puddle of urine looking for his bike....and the camera was stolen before it could be presented on the back pages of the free-press...was this a race issue?...no...just another day in charm city...

We would like to thank the incredible volunteers who gave up their Sunday to help out our communityRead More and the enviroment! We could not have done this without all your hard work! Thank you again!

Oh Jeff where are you? Typical make a comment then run and never to be heard from again.
Arbutus Town Crier July 21, 2012 at 02:47 pm
That will never happen, volunteers are "PRIVATE SECTOR" and supported by the community andRead More a part of the community,(of the people) Professional Fire Fighters supported by the government is a "PUBLIC SECTOR" supported by taxes, well you know how government handles you money.
Marc December 6, 2012 at 03:56 am
Firefighters don't have time to make phone calls, it's their office admin that does it most of theRead More time and who would want such a task? Someone has to ask for help.
