HAGERSTOWN -- In the latest move in a legal battle over construction of a new Sheetz store in Williamsport, an attorney representing the developer filed a response last week defending a zoning decision that would allow the Sheetz to be built. The case began when a group of 45 Williamsport residents and property owners filed a petition in Washington County Circuit Court for judicial review of a decision by the Williamsport Board of Zoning Appeals. That board decided in July to grant a special exception to allow a convenience store with gas pumps to be built at the corner of Potomac and Artizan streets, across from the current Sheetz.

I am happy to report that on the evening of July 19, I had a Sheetz sub with lettuce and tomatoes. I am happier to report that I am still alive. Really, who knew that MTO stood for Many Tiny Organisms? An outbreak of salmonella was traced - at least they thought at the time - to Roma tomatoes at the Sheetz deli last week. So some of you may have been a little nervous about going back to the convenience store - someone, obviously, had to step forward and prove that order has been restored.

WILLIAMSPORT -- The Williamsport Town Council on Monday rejected an alley transfer that was seen as paving the way to a new, larger Sheetz store. The council voted 4-1 not to give up a portion of a public alley near the former Red Barron furniture store. The 614-square-foot dead-end alley, if added to the Red Barron property, would have been part of a proposed Sheetz convenience store, across North Artizan Street from the existing one. Councilman Anthony T. Drury, a leading opponent of the transfer, said he might not mind a different project, but objected to the large store in the middle of town.
