  • The ABC's Of CleaningExclusive

    Summer isn't a distant memory yet, but it is time to consider how busy you're going to be with a new schedule while still juggling your everyday schedule. Whew! I am already exhausted just thinking about it! So, you may already have a cleaning company. This is not just a luxury for homeowners anymore; it is an absolute necessity, and it ranks right up there with having an electric bill. I want to share with you some timesaving tips for your "in-between” visits. These guidelines have helped my family and have created a nice flow of consistency and expectations.
    We de-clutter daily. It is so easy to let school papers and bills pile up. What do I keep and what do I toss?...

  • Term Versus Permanent Insurance: Which Is Right for You?

    What’s your most valuable asset? While you are still working, this asset may actually be your future income, so you need to protect it. And you can do so by maintaining adequate life insurance, which can help provide your family with the financial resources necessary to meet critical expenses — such as mortgage payments, college tuition and so on — should you pass away prematurely. But what type of insurance should you purchase? There’s no one “right” answer for everyone, but by knowing some of the basics of different polices and how they relate to your specific needs, you can make an informed decision.
    As its name suggests, term insurance is designed to...

  • Letter To The Editor: The Superintendent’s Proposal For Later Start Times, And What Should Be Done InsteadExclusive

    While Start School Later Anne Arundel County (SSLAACo) is pleased that Anne Arundel County Public School's proposed bell schedule provides safe, healthy and academically appropriate school start times for high school students, we are concerned about significant schedule changes proposed for many elementary and middle school students and the manner in which they are being proposed.

  • Tech Talk With Dr. Cranska

    I have witnessed the high-technology changes in dentistry since I started going to the dentist as a child in the 1950s, and I am still a dental patient.
    Last month, I fractured a large tooth-colored filling in a back tooth. There was no pain, but now the dentist needed a dentist.

The digital image was shown to me on the monitor, and I quickly noticed an abscess on the tooth next to the broken tooth. There was still no pain, but now I had two problems. I scheduled an appointment to have a crown placed on my broken tooth, but before that, I needed to see an endodontist for a root canal on the adjacent tooth.
