FREDERICK, Md. (AP) -- A state Senate committee has rejected a bill that would have blocked construction of a proposed trash incinerator near a Civil War battlefield just south of Frederick. The action effectively kills an effort by local Republican Sen. Alex Mooney to prevent Frederick County from building a $527 million incinerator in an industrial park near the Monocacy National Battlefield. The incinerator would burn trash from Frederick and Carroll counties to generate electricity and conserve landfill space.

FREDERICK, Md. (AP) -- The Frederick County Commissioners have voted to suspend the bidding process for a large trash incinerator amid growing opposition to the $527 million project. The 4-1 vote effectively kills the project after more than two years of planning and studies. The incinerator was planned for an industrial park just south of Frederick along the Monocacy River near the Monocacy Civil War battlefield. Supporters had hoped to conserve landfill space and generate electricity by burning garbage from Frederick and Carroll counties.

By LISA GRAYBEAL Staff Writer, Chambersburg McCONNELLSBURG, Pa. - Congressman Bud Shuster, R-Pa., announced Monday that Fulton County will receive a $500,000 grant, the second one awarded to the county in two months, which will go toward the construction of its first industrial park. The money comes from the Veterans Affairs, Housing and Urban Development Appropriations Act of 1998 through the Environmental Protection Agency, Shuster said. It will be used to install water and sewer lines in the 110-acre South Central Business Park, to be constructed about a half mile south of McConnellsburg between Cito Road and U.S. 522. The funds are in addition to the $1.027 million from the federal Economic Development Administration and the Appalachian Regional Commission awarded to the county in August.

By CLYDE FORD Staff Writer, Charles Town CHARLES TOWN - Jefferson County residents should check the Yellow Pages to find septic waste haulers instead of the county going to the expense of renovating a waste treatment lagoon, county officials said. Jefferson County officials called an emergency meeting on April 8 after being told by residents that homeowners with septic tanks were unable to get their waste pumped. A local waste hauler had a 30-day waiting list, partially because he was no longer able to get the waste treated at the Charles Town treatment plant, officials said.
