U.S. Sen. Benjamin L. Cardin promised Friday to fight to preserve Social Security and Medicare. At a senior citizen forum in Hagerstown, Cardin, D-Md., denounced efforts in Washington, D.C., to cut the entitlement programs for senior citizens. Cardin mentioned a budget proposal by U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wisc., that would have made large cuts in federal spending and restructured Medicare. The Republican-majority House of Representatives approved the plan, but the Democratic-majority Senate rejected it. Cardin, who is running for a second six-year term in the Senate, stopped at the new C. Williams Brooks senior citizen housing center on West Baltimore Street in Hagerstown to talk about senior citizen issues.

The power is controlled by a government entity as well as the coal mining that feeds the generators of electricity. The utility is losing money due to the inability through regulation to raise prices. Twenty percent of the electricity generated is said to be stolen.

I was fortunate and blessed and privileged to be a player for him in basketball, and he not only showed me the best way to play basketball, but he also taught me things in life that's helped me, at 55 years old.

Many take it for granted that the refrigerator will be stocked with plenty of food for dinner and there will be milk ready to pour over the family's morning cereal.

So, he gathered American Legion Riders from across the county and organized a 75-mile Food Pantry Ride to benefit South Central Community Action Programs' six county food pantries, each of which was visited by the riders.
