GREENCASTLE, Pa. - The proposal for a new government complex in Antrim Township, Pa., is weighing on the minds of supervisor candidates there. Each candidate has identified the complex, which could cost $6 million, as a key issue before the township. Some simply expressed concerns about the price tag, while others feel the U.S. 11 site isn't the best choice. The field of six Republicans and one Democrat is headed to the primary election on Tuesday. The seat held by Scott Diffenderfer is open on the Antrim Township Board of Supervisors.

tarar@herald-mail.com The two Democratic Washington County Commissioners ousted from office in Tuesday's general election said Wednesday there was one major reason why they weren't re-elected: The Republicans did a better job of promoting their candidates. "They did a better job than our Democratic Central Committee with getting the word out," Commissioners Vice President Paul L. Swartz said. Swartz and Commissioner Bert L. Iseminger were defeated in their bids to serve another four-year term, according to complete but unofficial results.

The aroma of grilled hamburgers and hot dogs blended with discussions of lower taxes and smaller government as the annual Washington County Republican Club picnic got under way Wednesday evening at the North American Rod and Gun Club. Republican candidates for governor, a House of Delegates seat and the 6th Congressional District mingled with an estimated 200 attendees, club President Ginger Bigelow said. The picnic gives people a chance to meet with candidates, to do some networking and otherwise enjoy an evening in the club grounds off Belvedere Road near Hagerstown that were described as a “great green cathedral.” Del. LeRoy E. Myers, R-Washington/Allegany, is not running for re-election, and two Republican candidates for the seat - Michael McKay of Cumberland and Ray Givens of Hancock - were at the picnic.

A plan unveiled by Gov. Martin O'Malley to reduce the state's greenhouse gas emissions by 25 percent by 2020 has drawn skepticism and concern from local Republican lawmakers. Del. Andrew A. Serafini, R-Washington, said the environment is important, but he remains concerned about the economic impact of the plan, which he said could increase costs of doing business, especially in Western Maryland, and raise energy costs for consumers. The governor's office said the plan will be achieved by enhancing existing programs that aim to reduce greenhouse gases.

Minutes after the Maryland General Assembly adjourned for the final time in 2013 last week, two Washington County delegates headed out the door, even as many of their colleagues readied for the late-night parties in Annapolis that typically follow the end of the session. Del. Andrew A. Serafini, R-Washington, and Del. LeRoy E. Myers, R-Washington/Allegany, said they were eager to get back home, and also keen to get away from the State House. A few days later, Myers seemed more upbeat as he tended to business at Myers Building Systems, a Clear Spring-based general contracting firm that he owns.

Pennsylvania has more NRA members than any other state, Keene said. “I thought this was a dinner for the Republican Party, but it's actually a gathering of NRA members,” he said to laughter.

I always enjoy reading fellow columnist Allan Powell. His columns are always thought-provoking and well-written. His recent column titled “The decline and fall of the Republican Party” was particularly interesting. In his column, he writes that the Republican Party for the most part is in serious decline. He suggests that Republicans have brought us to the brink of financial chaos and are no longer deserving of a leadership role. He also shared a list of Republican presidents ranked inadequate by historians.

Ever since the great British historian Edward Gibbon wrote “The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire” (1776), writers have adapted a portion of this title to describe “The Decline and Fall” of everything from a regime to a prominent family or person. So there should no alarm when it is applied to a political party. The Republican Party, now 159 years of age, shows all of the signs of decline and possible death. A party that began with a vision of free men and free territories has declined to an aggregate of naysayers dominated by a cadre of political absolutists who continue to bring the nation to the edge of financial chaos if they don't get their way. When their demise is final, I suggest this limerick be on the gravestone: Here lies the party of “no.” They knoweth not which way to row. There's no doubt about it, Their record doth shout it, 'Twas truly their time to go. It might turn out that this ailing party might not be pronounced dead.
