When two leaky 1,800-gallon propane tanks caught fire at the Coca-Cola plant in Baltimore County, Md., last week, the Washington County Special Operations Team and a local heating company went to the rescue. On Thursday, a forklift operator at the plant had damaged the propane tanks, which leaked several hundred gallons of the flammable liquid, said John Bentley, special ops deputy coordinator. Firefighters from Baltimore County put out the 50-foot flames shooting from the tanks but the heat had melted the valves, making it impossible to shut them off completely, Bentley said.

ANNAPOLIS - Four of six Washington County delegates voted against a Baltimore County condemnation bill Tuesday, possibly jeopardizing the chances of having South Mountain designated a state battlefield this year.

They call this revitalization. I call it rape," said Del. Diane DeCarlo, D-Baltimore/Harford.

New congressional districts an assault on representation To the editor:   The voters of Western Maryland, and Western Maryland economic interests have been cheated by the recent redistricting of Maryland congressional districts. We all know that Maryland is a very small geographic state and that the vast majority of the population of Maryland lies within the very strongly Democratic Party-controlled areas of Baltimore, Baltimore County, Anne Arundel County, Prince Georges County and Montgomery County.
