By LAURA ERNDE Staff Writer CEARFOSS - A tire fire was burning across a 100-by-200 foot area on property behind the house of Denzil and Delores Poling near Cearfoss on Tuesday afternoon. The fire broke out before l p.m. in piles of tires being used as planters. About one-third of the thousands of tires on the property were burning Tuesday afternoon, according to Poling and firefighters. The thick black smoke billowing from the fire on Castle Hill Road off Md. 63 south of the Pennsylvania line drifted toward Hagerstown and could be seen from 25 miles away on Interstate 81. Poling had fought authorities for the right to legally keep the tires on his property and use them for gardening purposes.

On a recent visit to Colonial Williamsburg, I realized just how true the saying is "the more things change, the more they remain the same. " I was visiting the Great Hopes Plantation, home to a middling planter, different from what many people know which are the gentry's planters such as Washington and Jefferson. The main difference was the gentry didn't actually do any physical work. The majority of today's farmers are middling planters - meaning they are middle class and they do the work.
