KEEDYSVILLE karenh@herald-mail.com After a century that saw enormous increases in creature comforts and world population, the age of oil is ending, U.S. Rep. Roscoe Bartlett told members of the Keedysville Ruritan Club on Tuesday. "We are just as hooked on fossil fuels as a cocaine addict is hooked on his cocaine, and we will be weaned from it," Bartlett said before the Ruritan's business meeting. Bartlett, R-Md., told about 25 people that the country must invest in energy alternatives and maintain its heritage of respect for God and civil liberties to preserve its greatness.

A decision by the Williamsport Town Council on whether to amend or change the zoning for an oil recycler using an old county sewage treatment plant was delayed Monday night. Edward Kuczynski, Williamsport's town attorney, said Spirit Services' attorney, Jason Divelbiss, requested the town delay a decision on the zoning change while issues are researched. One of the issues to be explored is the cost and feasibility of a secondary road to the site, Kuczynski said. Spirit Services is using the county's former Nicodemus sewer treatment plant, which is at the end of Lockwood Road, a narrow road with residences along it. Kuczynski recommended the council delay the zoning decision until at least its December meeting, though he said he expected Divelbiss might request another postponement because it will take time to research the issues.

On Monday night, the Williamsport Town Council is scheduled to address a zoning change request for an oil recycler using the county's old Nicodemus sewer treatment plant, an issue that has raised other questions regarding the property, Mayor James G. McCleaf II said Thursday. The county owns the old sewer plant property but has been leasing it to Spirit Services, McCleaf said. McCleaf said testimony during a Nov. 5 public hearing before the mayor and Town Council about the rezoning request included information that Spirit Services' proposed purchase of the plant is contingent upon a change in zoning for the property.

Today's modern vehicles have computers that can monitor the air pressure in your tires. They have onboard calculators that can figure out your average fuel economy, the amount of time you have been traveling and the number of miles you can drive before you run out of gas. Cars today can park themselves and sound alarms if you begin to drift into another lane. They watch your blind spots for you and have video displays of what's beneath your rear bumper. They have cruise control that automatically maintains a proper distance between you and the car ahead.

As a longtime bicycle rider and a frequent user of rail trails, I am about to take a pledge that I should have taken a long time ago. Events of late in Washington County have shown me the error of my ways, and I hope I can begin the long road back to redemption with this promise: I, Tim Rowland, do solemnly swear - and I would urge all rail-trail cyclists to join me - that I will never again urinate on private property. As we have seen in recent public hearings, bicyclist urine, or BU, has become a chief argument against building a rail trail from Hagerstown to the Potomac River.

I just might have the world's best smelling bathroom. The skeptic would ask if I've smelled every bathroom in the world. The answer, of course, is no. And the rest of the answer is, "Have you smelled MY bathroom?" Not to brag or anything, but the scent of my loo and its surroundings calls to mind a field of sprightly lavender on the outskirts of a quaint village, perhaps on a Mediterranean shore. I'm not sure my teenage sons would explain it just that way, but I'm saying, it smells good.

In looking at specific flavors, I have found by adding different varieties of olive oils, I can get a much deeper or more pronounced flavor.  One note: That bottle of olive oil that's been next to your stove or on your counter for the better part of a year, should be cast out.  More than likely, the oil is off flavor, possibly rancid and maybe just down right bland. The initial cost of good, quality olive oil might seem less than frugal, but you'll use less oil to get the same flavor.
