Dear Bay Weekly:

I love Diana Beechener’s Dec. 9 article on all the different calendars. However, the website link for the Chesapeake Bay Foundation’s calendar is incorrect. The correct url is www.cbf.org/store.

Thanks!

Dear Bay Weekly:

I have been meaning to say thank you for all your work in producing the three Maryland Avenue pages that really turned out great in the Season’s Bounty Holiday Guide.

I pick up Bay Weekly every week, usually at Gary’s Grill, and I love the sudoku puzzle. I try the crossword, too, but I’m better at the sudoku.

Dear Bay Weekly:

The story is beautiful. I find myself wondering how long my brother and I can hold onto our two vacant lots neither one of us wants to see developed.

Dear Bay Weekly:

Steve Carr’s article is good as always!

Everyone is running around these days seeking Happiness indexes. We should have one for the Bay, and the index/measurement should be on people living today and how they can maintain or improve their level. Total Maximum Daily Loads are nice and necessary, but they are just another diversion that separates people from land and water and have no personal meaning for individuals.

Dear Bay Weekly:

EPA is requiring Maryland to create a Watershed Implementation Plan as a road map for cleaning up our waters.

Maryland’s first draft was a good start. But there are key elements missing — namely how the state is going to achieve full implementation of the programs detailed in the plan.
