With strong ties to both leading candidates for governor, former state delegate D. Bruce Poole said he feels torn this election year. But in the end, a commitment he made last summer will win out over a long-term friendship. Poole said he promised fellow Democrat Lt. Gov. Kathleen Kennedy Townsend a year ago he would support her candidacy. At the time, he believed his longtime friend and colleague Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. would stay out of the race. But Ehrlich jumped in and Poole had to break the news he would be supporting Townsend.

HAGERSTOWN -- The rundown former Municipal Electric Light Plant building might sit, as is, as long as the economy falters. D. Bruce Poole, an attorney for the building's owner, said Monday that various plans for selling or redeveloping the property have been considered, but "the current status of the economy has kind of put sand in the gears on that. " Poole said trouble in the credit market has cooled interest and is one reason it's been difficult to make a transaction. The building, across from Municipal Stadium, has sat idle and deteriorated for many years.

When all is said and done, the primary purpose of a public park is exercise and fresh air. So we support the Hagerstown City Council's move to ban smoking in these green environs. It's true that smokers must feel like an endangered species, roped in ever-tightening corners. But when people visit a park, they should not be subjected to clouds of smoke. Secondhand smoke is a proven carcinogen, which basically defeats the purpose of venturing outdoors in pursuit of a healthy lifestyle.

Some regular users of the Western Maryland Rail Trail at Big Pool were surprised last week to see a sign asking users to pay a service charge of a dollar per person to use the popular trail. The sign, which went up July 8, had been taken down by Wednesday afternoon. Earlier that day, Maryland Park Service Superintendent Nita Settina acknowledged that the department had made a misstep in putting it up. But Del. LeRoy Myers, R-Washington/Allegany, said questions remain as to how the state Department of Natural Resources, or DNR, which oversees the Maryland Park Service, was able to begin charging a fee to use the trail without public hearings and informing area communities.

An Ellicott City, Md., man died Sunday at a Virginia hospital after participating in the Tough Mudder endurance series in Berkeley County on Saturday, police said. Avishek Sengupta, 28, was pronounced dead at Inova Fairfax Hospital in Falls Church, Va., Berkeley County Sheriff's Deputy Sgt. Ted Snyder said Monday. Sengupta's death was ruled accidental by the Virginia medical examiner's office in Manassas, Va., which said Monday afternoon that drowning was the cause of death. Sengupta had to be removed from a fairly deep pool at the “Walk the Plank” aquatic obstacle where it appears he was submerged for too long, according to Snyder.
