Welcome to Bel Air News & Views a collection of local news, advice and opinions about Bel Air, Md. I’m Stacey Alatzas, a journalist and mother of two spending most of my time toting the kids in and out of Blockbuster and the library, figuring out where is the best place to feed the kids between swim class and baseball, which summer camps are worth trying and how much I should worry about the shopping center planned to be built next to my son’s elementary school. I figure I’m not alone in mulling how to make life work here and thought I’d open this blog to share thoughts and solicit advice from others. The best resources are those folks who are battling your same battles. So let’s share information. It will it make managing life so much easier.
