  • In His FY2016 Budget, Schuh Lets Vision For The County Take Shape

    On the campaign trail last year, then-candidate Steve Schuh recited at every opportunity his vision for county government: a property tax cut, smaller county high schools and more public safety spending. In his first budget since being elected county executive, the Gibson Island Republican followed through on that vision.
    On May 1 at the Arundel Center, Schuh released his Fiscal Year 2016 budget proposal, which will go into effect on July 1. The $1.4 billion operating budget and $227 million capital budget include funding for additional police officers, a new Crofton High School and the 3 percent property tax promised through Schuh’s campaign.
    “Our budget will accelerate...

  • A Look Back At Session

    There was a new perspective in Annapolis this session with Republican Larry Hogan as our new governor. I am one of 14 Republicans, out of 47 senators, in the Maryland General Assembly. It was encouraging to work on legislation knowing that there was bipartisan compromise happening in the hallways of the State House. Bills still passed freely through the Democratic-dominated chambers, but the balance from the one-party dominated government had a slight shift to it. I found this environment to be very refreshing.

    There were several pieces of legislation that received a great deal of time and attention during the session. The first and most important item is the state budget. The Maryland...

  • Drink Up On World Kidney Day, March 12Exclusive

    March 12 is World Kidney Day, and the National Kidney Foundation (NKF) is asking Americans to drink a glass of water to celebrate their kidneys. Consuming plenty of fluid helps the kidneys clear waste and toxins from the body. Studies have also shown that increasing fluid intake is one of the best ways to prevent the formation of painful kidney stones.
    The right level of fluid intake for any individual depends on many factors, including gender, exercise, climate, health conditions, pregnancy and breastfeeding. In addition, those with advanced kidney disease or kidney failure often have to restrict their fluid intake. In general, drinking 1.5 to 2 liters (3 to 4 pints) of water per day is...
