The Maryland State Highway Administration found out Friday the meaning of the expression, "no good deed ever goes unpunished.''
Three SHA trucks showed up at the M.S. Johnston Co. at 13261 Pennsylvania Ave. in Hagerstown Friday morning to right an old wrong, according to Alan Sheeley, comptroller-personnel director at M.S. Johnston.
But in the process, they attracted the attention of at least one taxpayer who happened to drive by and wondered why his tax dollars were going to pave a private company's parking lot.
Last summer, the state widened and repaved Pennsylvania Avenue, Sheeley said. A hot tar pot owned by P&W Excavating of Hagerstown was left unattended on the Johnston lot and boiled over, Sheeley said.
