    By Jim MacPherson When asked which cars get the best fuel economy, most people immediately think of gas-electric hybrids. There’s good reason for this, as compact and midsize hybrids produce outstanding EPA fuel economy numbers. Honda has two...
  • 'Tis The Season

    For me, the week after Thanksgiving can only mean one thing: It's time to get the Christmas tree. None of this plastic/fake stuff either. One of the biggest perks of the holiday season is the smell of a live Christmas tree in the living room. But...
  • About Specs

    Land swap could provide beach parking closer to Sunrise Boulevard

    For Year-Round Bicycle Commuters, Winter Is Just Another Season
    Nothing seemed out of the ordinary to the half-dozen bicycle riders who filtered into Maddie's in East Hartford on a Friday in February for their monthly breakfast gathering. It's a convenient and friendly spot, as most of them work as engineers across...

    Why the speed limit should stay at 65
    There are many inaccuracies in letter writer D. Keith Henderson's argument against raising the speed limit to 70 mph in Maryland ("Pick up the pace of Md.'s absurdly low speed limits," Feb. 27). One measures miles per gallon by overall miles driven...
