The officer then realized it was County Executive Isiah Leggett.

Ex Virginia governor helps Howard County candidate

Thursday was not a good day for the last governor of Virginia as Bob McDonnell was found guilty of corruption in a Richmond courtroom. But another former Republican governor of Virginia, George Allen, had a better day of it in Howard County, talking up the candidacy of state Senate hopeful Jody Venkatesan in District 13 and other candidates at a Clarksville ballroom. “There were a lot of folks from Maryland who helped me out” in his successful race for governor of Virginia 20 years ago, Allen told a crowd of about 50, and he was happy to return the favor. Venkatesan is running against Democratic Del. Guy Guzzone for the seat now held by retiring Democratic Sen. Jim Robey. In 2010, Venkatesan lost the Republican primary for the seat that represents much of eastern and southern Howard County, but ran unopposed in June. “In every way, Jody is running on the issues that matter...

The Ghosts of Christmas

22-12-2014 Hits:160 Editor's Notebook Brian Karem - avatar Brian Karem

The Ghosts of Christmas

Last week as my wife and I celebrated our anniversary we met at the Willard Hotel downtown and after a nice libation we walked to Ford’s Theater to watch a production of The Christmas Carol. We sat across from the box seats where John Wilkes Booth shot and killed President Lincoln. An ethnic diverse cast spoke of the ghosts of Christmas past, present and future while the largest ghost of all sat watching the embodiment of all this country fought for during the Civil War – men and women of many diversities united together in a common cause. This cause was the gift of entertainment and the joy of celebrating the Christmas Spirit and I found myself halfway through the performance engaged in a day dream unlike any other I’d ever experienced.

A little Cornerstone of the holiday season

So this Christmas season my wife and I found ourselves in possession of an extra Christmas tree and rather than put two up in the house – thereby giving our cats and dogs the ultimate solid and liquid waste depository – we decided to donate the tree to someone who didn’t have one. I tried a variety of venues to give away the tree before running across Cornerstone Montgomery in Bethesda. Their mission statement: “Cornerstone Montgomery empowers people living with mental health and co-occurring substance use disorders to live, work, and integrate successfully within the community.”

Have yourself a merry little CIA Christmas!

I think as Christmas and the season of giving is upon us it would behoove us to make the most of the recent revelations from a Senate investigative committee regarding the torturing of prisoners by the CIA.This handy little “How to Book” with an executive summary of some 500 pages should be a wakeup call for all of us as we embrace the season of peace and joy.For as the Bible tells us: A whip for the horse, a bridle for the ass, and a rod for the fool's back.
