By BRENDAN KIRBY Staff Writer CHEWSVILLE - The Chewsville Cooperative Association's mill stands silent and its store is closed. In a few days, the last two employees will be gone and a community landmark for more than six decades will fade forever. Then attorney Roger Schlossberg, who was appointed receiver by the court last week, will begin the process of preserving the assets of the store - and another in Smithsburg - and selling them. "It's a mainstay out there in that community," said Schlossberg, who represented six shareholders who brought suit to force its closure.

A Washington County food cooperative and a church near Boonsboro have formed a partnership to help each other grow. George Snyder, pastor of the Church at the Crossroads, said his congregation recently opened its doors to the Valley Co-op to give the blossoming organization more room to store and distribute food. “From what I've heard, they've grown in leaps and bounds,” Snyder said. “The co-op is a good way to advertise the church. It's a good partnership. It doesn't put us out and it gives them a better place.” Co-op volunteer Susan Simonson said the group has grown from six members in 2010 to 150 members today.

When my column "What really motivates the CPWC?" appeared in the June 15 Herald-Mail, I hoped it would give that group some pause. Despite its noble goal to protect Washington County's rural atmosphere, the CPWC advocates policies that will cause devastating financial loss to rural landholders and hurt the viability of local farming. That unfairness and economic harm undermine the group's goals to "preserve nature" and "keep things peaceful here," hence my ironic suggestion that the CPWC is really an anti-rural, anti-farm, anti-environment group with a hidden agenda.

Over the last year or so, I've written several op-eds on local issues. I now find myself with a problem - I have a few "follow-ups" and comments that I want to make public, but nothing lengthy enough for a column. I'll try to tie up these "loose ends" below. First, I need to acknowledge some flawed thinking on my part. An op-ed I wrote last winter argued against the thenen vogue notion that Washington County and the City of Hagerstown should merge into one governmental entity.

Just last week, some members of The Herald-Mail's Editorial Page Advisory Committee were complaining that there's no real debate on the Washington County Board of Education, that the members who vowed to shake up the system have been ground down by it instead. Judging by Tuesday's election, that complaint may not be valid for the board's next term, if it ever was. That's because the top vote-getter in that contest was not Bernadette Wagner or Roxanne Ober, the powerhouse campaign team of the last election, but Wayne Ridenour, a retired teacher who promises to speak up in way we haven't heard in a while.

Most people don’t own part of their local supermarket. But that isn’t the case with members of Valley Co-Op near Boonsboro. Co-op coordinator Chris Madeo said not only are co-op customers the owners, but much of the food is grown or raised locally. The concept not only allows co-op members to know where there food is coming from, but it gives them a chance to support area farmers. “This is our first year. We’re trying to work out the kinks,” Madeo said. “Right now it’s a break-even kind of thing.

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Stephen Strasburg had to get through a few hours of anger, confusion and certainly a few more volatile emotions before he was ready to accept the sobering news expressed in three disheartening words. Tommy John surgery. The Washington Nationals rookie sensation is done for the season -- and maybe next season as well -- after the team announced Friday that he has a torn ligament in his right elbow. He will travel Saturday to the West Coast for a second opinion, but the 22-year-old right-hander has accepted the fact that he will need the ligament replacement operation that requires 12 to 18 months of rehabilitation.

WASHINGTON COUNTY - Once upon a time, getting electricity was as simple as calling the number in the phone book, providing a street address and switching on the lights. No longer is that the case. When Maryland decided to deregulate energy and open the market to competition, it meant businesses faced the prospect of dramatically increased electricity bills. For a small-business owner who not only is overseeing his or her business but also taking out the trash and writing paychecks, understanding deregulation became crucial.
