Thumbs Up, Thumbs Down - Dec. 17

December 17, 2011

Thumbs up to Allegany, Carroll, Frederick and Washington counties, which have formed the Maryland Rural Counties Coalition, largely to lobby against a proposed statewide development plan called PlanMaryland. The counties hope to expand the group to include other rural counties, including those on the Eastern Shore, to strengthen their influence in Annapolis.


Thumbs up to the Smithsburg Middle School Gives Back program, through which 62 students made 24 fleece tie blankets for various community facilities, created about 40 holiday cards to send to servicemen and servicewomen, and made 15 fleece scarves for residents of Holly Place in Hagerstown.
