CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - When Michael Starr first opened his insurance agency in 1989, his day job was sandwiched between morning and evening occupations. "When I started on my own, I needed to make sure I could pay the bills, so I kept the cow-milking job," said Starr. After milking those 400 cows at a neighbor's farm and then running his insurance agency by day, he sold men's clothing at Lyon's & Co. "My mother said, 'Someday you'll be glad I taught you to work so hard,'" Starr said Thursday after being named the Greater Chambersburg Chamber of Commerce Business Person of the Year.

A controversial proposed ban on new large-development septic systems in Maryland will be replaced by a broad study of environmental-protection issues, a House committee chairwoman said Wednesday. The plan was in a bill filed by Del. Stephen W. Lafferty, D-Baltimore County, and championed by Gov. Martin O'Malley. It was seen as a way to bolster Maryland's efforts to protect the Chesapeake Bay by limiting pollution that ends up there. However, Republicans from Washington County argued that it could devastate homebuilding and other associated trades.
