By STEVEN T. DENNIS Staff Writer Washington County Commissioner James R. Wade says a plan to spend at least $3 million to build a bridge and access road across the Conococheague Creek to the future Lund landfill is a mistake that will cost the county taxpayers money for the benefit of a few residents. Wade said he thought it would be wiser and less costly to upgrade Independence Road to access the landfill, which wouldn't require a bridge. But a 1990 agreement to appease residents who opposed the landfill, signed by then-Washington County Commissioners President Ronald L. Bowers on behalf of the commissioners, specifically forbids trash-hauling vehicles from using Independence Road.

By BRENDAN KIRBY Staff Writer SMITHSBURG - Former Police Chief Tommy Bowers has asked a federal court to prevent Smithsburg from hiring a permanent replacement until his civil suit against the town is resolved, his attorney said Monday. Lewis C. Metzner, one of Bowers' lawyers, said Bowers made the motion in U.S. District Court in Baltimore on Thursday. It seeks a temporary restraining order that would prevent the town from hiring a permanent chief, Metzner said. He said the town still could hire an interim chief.

From the Civil War, when those who gave their lives led to “a new birth of freedom,” to the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, when the nation's resolve was tested, military personnel in the country have risen to meet something bigger than themselves, a former Washington County Commissioner and retired U.S. Army official said Sunday. Ronald L. Bowers' comments came during an annual ceremony in front of the Washington County Courthouse in commemoration of Memorial Day, the day set aside to honor the nation's men and women who died while serving in the United States Armed Forces.

Now, Bowers is leading a group trying to reduce the amount of people who repeat that offense. He credits hearing the story of a victim injured in an alcohol-related crash as one of the most significant moments in his recovery. Bowers, an admitted alcoholic, was appointed chairman of the advisory board to the Washington County Victim Impact Panel, which was formed this spring.

By STEVEN T. DENNIS Staff Writer Washington County Commissioner Ronald L. Bowers Tuesday suggested charging developers a road access fee as a way of raising money for a planned four-lane extension of Halfway Boulevard Extended and Newgate Boulevard west of Hopewell Road. Bowers said the fee could be charged much as a sewer hookup fee is and could help fund a portion of the $22 million in improvements. Such a fee could be charged to developers of new businesses for access to Halfway and Newgate in order to pay for the road work.
