  • Chamber Update

    Severna Park and Arnold are beautiful and unique communities where we shop, dine, live and play. We love our communities and many of us have lived here all our lives. We can drive anywhere in Maryland, skiing at Wisp Resort in the winter and enjoying the Ocean City beach in the summer.
    We can drive to our nation’s capital and to Philadelphia, home of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution. A three-hour drive away, New York is a shopping and dining mecca, not to mention home base for the New York Stock Exchange and Broadway, and headquarters for some of our largest companies. And after our visits to these incredible places, we return home to the comfort of our lovely...

    Annapolis Film Festival Handpicks Best For Its Audience

  • End Gerrymaryland

    Look, it's a Rorschach blot! It's a crazy quilt! It's a constipated dragon! It's definitely not Superman. It's a map of Maryland's congressional districts.
    This year, I brought the fight against congressional gerrymandering back to the General Assembly, introducing House Bill 1022. This bill calls for Maryland’s congressional districts to be drawn so that each district would be “of adjoining territory, be compact in form and be of substantially equal population,” with due regard given to “natural boundaries and the boundaries of political subdivisions.” Article three, section four of the Maryland Constitution mandates that state...

  • Laser Your Gum Disease

    New methods for treating medical conditions and diseases are always being developed. Arthroscopy has allowed surgeons to be minimally invasive. Using lasers, LASIK can correct vision.
    Dentistry has lasers and procedures (LANAP=LAR and LAPIP) to treat periodontal disease in a minimally invasive way.
    Periodontal disease is one of the most common medical conditions facing our adult population. As many as 80 percent of 35 year olds are affected by periodontal disease.
