Sen. Donald F. Munson's daughter was taken to an Annapolis hospital Wednesday after having a seizure on the floor of the state Senate chamber. About 2 1/2 hours later, Munson, R-Washington, reported that his daughter, Xanthy Hoover, was doing well. Hoover was at the State House to see her father sworn in for a fifth term as senator. At about 1:30 p.m., while a Herald-Mail reporter interviewed Munson about the swearing-in ceremony, Hoover, seated behind him, fell from a chair to the ground.

Maryland Sen. Donald F. Munson, R-Washington, will likely serve his third term in office after apparently defeating opponent H. Victoria "Vikki" Nelson during Tuesday's primary. The senator will run unopposed in the Nov. 3 general election since no Democrats filed for the seat. In the race, the incumbent received 5,185 votes, while Nelson garnered 1,699. Election results were complete but unofficial. "I feel incredible. I love my job. This is great," said Munson, 60, of Hagerstown, during a victory celebration at the Corner Pub. The senator said he felt good about the race throughout and received plenty of positive support from voters while going door-to-door.

I think we can all agree that when Washington County Commissioner John Munson called for the abolition of public schools last week, he was simply stating publicly something each and every one of us has thought privately at one time or another. Of course, that time-or-another was generally at age 11 in science class after we had just been handed a pop quiz on arachnids. I remember having wanted to abolish public schools lots of times. I still do occasionally, just on general principles over the torment that I was subjected to as a boy. But Munson is the first grownup I've heard mention it in a while.

So he's having a go at the dogs and cats now. Beautiful. You know, sometimes when I come in to work I'll see a copy of the morning paper out of the corner of my eye, and if I happen to notice that it has a headshot of Washington County Commissioner John Munson on the front page I get down on my knees and offer a silent prayer of thanksgiving. And that's before I even see what the story is about. I just know it's going to be something good. This time Munson jumped ugly with Humane Society President Dana Moylan, who was, as heads of all public agencies are wont to do, asking the commissioners for more money.

Washington County Commissioner John C. Munson says he wants county government to keep its hands off private property, for the most part. Munson on Tuesday asked the County Commissioners to approve a resolution that states the county would back away from using eminent domain to acquire private property, except as a last resort. The commissioners plan to place the proposed resolution on next Tuesday's meeting agenda. Munson asked for the resolution's approval in light of a recent U.S. Supreme Court decision that upheld a government's right to take private property for public purposes.

State Sen. Donald F. Munson is backing off his earlier support for a study questioning the downtown location of the University System of Maryland Hagerstown Education Center. Munson said Tuesday he supports the downtown site, a point on which he was challenged by Hagerstown Mayor Robert E. Bruchey II. At his annual State of the City address Tuesday, Bruchey said Munson needs to change his attitude about the education center for the project to succeed. "It's very important that we all reach out to our delegation, to our senator, to make sure this project happens," Bruchey told nearly 200 people at the Ramada Inn and Convention Center.
