We’re entitled to our own opinions, but whether or not we are bored by facts, our level of discourse would be greatly improved if we acknowledged them.

Posted: July 01, 2015

Some people say that those who forget history are domed to repeat it. Talbot County should not repeat history, we should do better!

I am not going to preach to anyone, just enlighten those who have gone off the deep end.

Thanks for the laugh
Posted: July 01, 2015

A good laugh is always the start of a great day, and so often our local news source of record, The Star Democrat, inadvertently provides that chuckle or two to get the day started right. Sunday's (June 21) front page article entitled, "Accidents snarl Friday's traffic", is the most recent case in point: "Police blamed both accidents on the fact that there was traffic in the first place." One certainly cannot argue that had there been no traffic there should have been no accidents. An appreciative smile must also go to the report that the "traffic backup" was "moving forward," which doesn't quite qualify as an oxymoron, but is close.

Remove the 'Talbot Boys'
Posted: June 28, 2015

Resting on the south lawn of the Talbot County Courthouse is a Confederate memorial to the “Talbot Boys,” which was placed in this spot in June 1916. The monument, which depicts a soldier draped in, and hoisting a Confederate flag, stands to the south of the Frederick Douglass memorial, an individual whom the Talbot Boys fought to enslave.

Downtown gem
Posted: June 28, 2015

If you haven’t walked past Thompson Park at the corner of Dover and Washington streets recently, you will find yourself in for a treat in doing so. This little in-town gem, always a pleasant spot in the downtown area, has been renovated by the Garden Club of the Eastern Shore. This has involved much planning, both in the design of the park and in fundraising to make it happen. The new plantings and walkways have lifted the park to a new level of in-town enjoyment.

Let's lose the junk writers
Posted: June 26, 2015

Tom Horton must be getting hungry again. He has written yet another letter about the problems with Chesapeake Bay for the Bay Journal News Service which was picked up and published by the Star Democrat in the June 14 edition. This is what he does when he gets hungry. He writes another letter.

Failing phone service is a concern
Posted: June 26, 2015

The Village of Neavitt has a failing telephone system. Verizon customers (including myself) have frequent occurrences of no dial tone on their phone. I’ve had the problem five times in the last nine months. On Sunday, June 7, when the phone had no dial tone, I went to a neighbor’s house to call in the problem. After 50 minutes, I was not successful contacting a Verizon person at their 1-800-837-4966 number.
