I am writing to thank Elkton residents for sharing the true meaning of Christmas with children in need this past holiday season.

THUMBS UP... to the cast and crew of Cecil College’s Milburn Stone Theatre’s “Romero and Juliet.” Be sure to go this weekend — it’s the only time you can! Show will be performed at 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and 2 p.m. Sunday. Tickets are available for purchase at milburnstone.com.

The North East Lions Club would like to thank everyone who came out in good weather — and bad — to purchase Christmas trees from us. Christmas tree sales have been a yearly event for us for over 15 years. If it wasn’t for you, the people of North East and surrounding communities, the Lions would not be able to provide the services we do. Every cent of our proceeds goes back to the community to provide financial support to organizations such as: Cub & Scout Troop 131 of North East, North East Library, Boys & Girls Club of Cecil County, Scholarships to Cecil College, Henry Hammer…

We are grateful to be part of a journalistic organization that prioritizes accurate reporting and objectivity. It is my great pleasure to lead with these principles as I begin my first full calendar year as editor of the Whig. Thank you for supporting…

I recently found out that the Cecil Businesses for Better Government implied that I may be “local anarchist” because I favor restraint in government spending and taxation.

Dear Editor,

What should be your New Years Resolution? Make it something you really want. Don’t make it a resolution that you should want or what other people tell you to want. Limit your list to a number you can handle. It’s probably best to make two or three resolutions that you intend to keep. Example get in shape, start eating healthier food and less food overall. Perhaps you may want to stop procrastinating or improve your concentration and mental skills. Perhaps it’s time to be more active and meet new people. Spend more time with people that matter. Become more polite and reduce stress. Volu…
