  • And The Winners For The 2016 “Best Of Severna Park” Are…

    It took our staff several days to tally all the votes and come up with the list of winners for this year’s “Best of Severna Park” survey.

    So without further ado...the envelope, please!

  • Don’t Go Crazy — Go Local

    Perhaps because I was once a candidate for the office of president of the United States (I was the Constitution Party’s nominee in 2004), I am frequently asked during presidential campaign years for my opinion not only of the candidates who are contending but also on the nature of the race itself.
    And when the presidential campaign season gets into full swing, it’s almost impossible not to get blown over by all the hype, bravado and bluster that is part and parcel of this particular part of the political cycle.
    And I think you might agree that this seems to be especially true this time around in that the current campaign has included (without mentioning names) threats of...

  • Autism: What Are Some Common Signs?Exclusive

    Even beginning as early as infancy, children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) may seem different when compared with other children their own age. Some signs may include a hyper-focus on certain objects, difficulty making eye contact, and lack of engaging in typical babbling with their parents. Other children appear to be developing normally until they are 2 or 3 years of age and then begin to withdraw socially or verbally.
    The severity of ASD in a child can vary tremendously depending on how severe the child’s social communication skills have become, how insistent the child is with the sameness of their activities and surroundings (difficulties with change), and how repetitive...
