laurae@herald-mail.com DOWNSVILLE - Charlie Settle of Downsville didn't much mind that he came back empty-handed on the first day of Maryland's firearm deer-hunting season. At age 62 and retired, Settle figures he has two weeks to land "the big one," a 10-point buck he's been eyeing. Those trophy deer always show themselves before and after the hunting season, but darn it if they don't seem to hide when hunting season comes around, he said. "He didn't get to be 10-point for being dumb," Settle said with a chuckle.

“To the caller who was talking about John Donoghue bringing home the grant to Washington County: Not really interested so much about whether, who brought the grant to the county. What I'm interested in is Gov. O'Malley raising taxes 26 times since he's been governor, and John Donoghue voting for every one of them, along with Mike Miller and Michael Busch, down in Annapolis. All these guys need to be replaced in November.” - Hagerstown “This is in response to the person who heard what they thought were gunshots down in Rest Haven Cemetery.

Almost a year ago, I wrote a column about the meat cutter and his friend, Bucky, a tiny deer rescued from the middle of Porterstown Road by Jeff Shumaker after the little critter's mother had died. Bucky was to have a most unique life. He became a celebrity to all who intimately knew him. Civilization must have seemed a little odd to this visiting fellow. His immediate surroundings did not include thistles, oaks and tall grasses of the valley. Manicured lawns, Little League diamonds and concrete walkways were his paths.

A Western Maryland legislator is trying again to gain passage for a bill that would allow bow-hunters to carry handguns while hunting in some areas of the state. Sen. George C. Edwards, R-Allegany/Garrett/Washington, has introduced a bill similar to one filed last year that passed the Senate but did not get out of committee in the House of Delegates. “(Hunters) are allowed to carry a handgun as they hunt with a rifle … but you cannot carry a handgun and hunt deer with a bow,” he said.
