Even though it didn't work well in the Hagerstown City Council race, a group of Western Maryland delegates to the Maryland General Assembly has decided to run as a slate in the 2006 campaign. If the effort forces the candidates to stake out clear and firm positions, that would be a good thing. If it is only a mechanism to raise enough money to bury their foes in a mound of dollar bills, that would not be so good. Like their counterparts in the city, the members of this slate are Republicans.

The slate of candidates that wishes to take over Hagerstown City Hall is new to the business of running for office, so they may be excused for two political blunders on the same day: The slate's first public, sort of, gathering was exclusionary (invitation only) and it was held at a ritzy restaurant that happens to be situated not in the city of Hagerstown, but in Washington County. A private coming-out party. Good move. Nothing screws up democracy faster than allowing the people to become involved.

Patriot Act is laying waste to our Bill of Rights To the editor: While Congress was a nervous wreck trying to quickly stop terrorism, the Patriot Act was approved, which ultimately took away certain unalienable rights of the American citizen. One of the main violations was the Fourth Amendment found in the Bill of Rights concerning search and seizure, which states, "The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall be issued, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched and the persons or things to be seized.

The Hagerstown City Council voted unanimously Tuesday to introduce an ordinance that will impose a 10 percent fee on the city's water and sewer customers who are late paying their utility bills. The ordinance - which the five-member council began considering after several hundred utility customers were delinquent with their bills this spring - is slated to be adopted next week after a formal vote at the council's June 18 work session. It will take effect 30 days later. Michael S. Spiker, the city's director of utilities, has said a late fee notice would be sent to water and sewer customers 21 days after their quarterly bill is due. The late fee for one bill would not be compounded if a customer failed to pay the next bill, Spiker has said.

On Saturday, the racers will move to Smithsburg, and on Sunday, they will be in Williamsport. “Think of it as NASCAR on two wheels,” said Race Director Joe Jefferson of the  Antietam Velo Club, which is hosting the event. “You're going to be seeing bikes that weigh 14 pounds that cost over $5,000 and $6,000 doing speeds of 35 to 40 mph in downtown Hagerstown - you can't even get a car to do that fast on these streets because of how tight the turns are.” Modeled after the Tour de France, the weekend of racing includes road races, time trials and downtown circuit events.
