Bob Maginnis' article of Dec. 11, "Many roads to Robinwood," was disappointing. Everything he reported was true about what happened during our meeting with Gary Rohrer, the county's director of public works. However, he failed to report the important issues that were discussed and the conclusions reached. To claim that Rohrer answered all my questions without saying what the answers were suggests to the reader that Rohrer's answers were acceptable and believable. Maginnis failed to say that the funding for the U.S. 40/Edgewood Drive intersection is in jeopardy because the city government has pulled out of the agreement.

" It's good old-fashioned family fun and Saturday, it came to the Village at Robinwood. For the adventurous, there was a ride called "The Rock and Roll Tumbler.

With an estimated construction cost of nearly $30 million, a network of roads that eventually will connect Eastern Boulevard North to Robinwood Drive is viewed by Washington County officials as a remedy to growing congestion on two major Hagerstown corridors. It's also the hope of county and local development officials that the infrastructure will pave the way for a proposed high-tech business park east of Hagerstown that could boost tax revenue and create thousands of local jobs over the next two decades.
