Old man Winter is a state on mind and it may be on everyone's mind next Tuesday.

The paraphrase Mark Twain, reports of winter's demise are premature.

"Our" Ancestors are not from the land of Ariel Shalom. Very selfish that a U.S. SenatorsRead More would believe that Marylanders are from the land of Ariel Shalom. Please give this international statesman his due, but please don't stretch the truth and assume that he represents Marylanders. Incredible how a U.S. Senator could assume everyone in Maryland is Kosher.

In the movie “As Good As It Gets” Jack Nicholson’s character says to HelenRead More Hunt’s character, “You make me want to be a better man”. That is how Norm Myers affected me. Norm’s love of family, his dedication to country, and his commitment to his faith were paramount, and important in making Norm Myers the man he was. He was a great friend to many people. I met Norm in 2004 when I was starting a business in Odenton. I was referred to him for printing my office stationary. Norm could have looked at that as a business opportunity, which he did, but he also took it as an opportunity to help out a fellow businessman, someone new to the business community who had rookie coming out of his pores. Norm not only provided my stationary, but he asked about my family, my business, my interests, and in his typical low-key way invited me to visit the Rotary Club as his guest. He introduced me to the other members, what Rotary stood for and its objectives, and made me feel that it was a good place to be for how it could benefit me, and for how I could be of benefit to others. Norm was called the “Mayor of Odenton”, an honorific of respect and an acknowledgement of the years of work he performed in making his community a better place. His involvement, support and leadership of groups like the Odenton Heritage Society, the Greater Odenton Improvement Association and the Rotary Club of West Anne Arundel County were emblematic of his commitment to his community. His work with the Odenton Town Center Oversight Committee was important in moving a project forward that will be bringing benefits to Odenton and the surrounding area for decades to come. Norm was a quiet man, one imbued with an aura of dignity and good humor. He was slow to judge, quick to complement or encourage, and reliable in support of his friends, other businesses and the community. At Rotary, we never expected Norm to say much, but when he did, it was like the old E.F. Hutton commercial where everyone stopped what they were doing and leaned in close to hear what he would say. What Norm had to say was always well-thought out, considerate of others, and eminently wise, or wickedly funny. We might have been laughingly talking about some issue of the day, speaking volumes to wring every last bit of humor out of a topic, and Norm, in just a few words, would slay us with a witty bon mot that left us laughing and realizing that that was the final word to be said on the subject. Norm will be missed a great deal, and he will be fondly remembered for what he accomplished in his life, and for encouraging all of us in his quiet, dignified way to be better men and women. Respectfully, David Magayna
