SMITHSBURG - Two members of the Smithsburg Zoning Appeals Board addressed the Smithsburg Town Council on Tuesday night to protest the council's failure to reappoint the mayor's husband, Homer Myers, to the board.

To the editor:/ It seems to be an epidemic of grand proportions on the mountain. I have watched over the last year - so many trees wiped out so that homebuilders can make a quick profit. When will this destruction end? Shannondale, W.Va., used to be such a nice peaceful area, full of birds and other wildlife. Now it is becoming a crowded, overbuilt hodgepodge of vinyl-sided boxes. I am for property rights, but to totally wipe out a forest is criminal. Has there been any environmental study on the effect of this stripping of the mountain?

At its Aug. 2 meeting, the commission split 4-4 on whether to recommend the council change the zoning to low density, which limits development to single-family dwellings and duplexes.
