We appreciate the willingness of Washington County's General Assembly delegation to yield a bit on their "no gambling legislation in 1997" stand. Now that they're willing to move, they need to do the most important one first, and chop out the "sunset clause" that, unless eliminated, will kill the tip-jar gaming law in 1999. We've heard one argument that the delegation still has two more sessions to eliminate this clause, and another that says the sunset clause should stay in, to force a periodic review of this issue.

Gambling bill aims to repeal 'sunset' provision By GUY FLETCHER Staff Writer ANNAPOLIS - Washington County's delegation in the Maryland General Assembly agreed Wednesday to sponsor legislation that would remove the 1999 expiration date from the county's tip jar gambling bill. But the debate over local gaming legislation will continue, and likely focus on the operations of the county Gaming Commission, which distributes tip jar proceeds to charities, nonprofit organizations and fire and rescue companies.

Robert Shoemaker, a Washington County liquor board inspector, said music coming from the tavern was at an acceptable level during an inspection in June, but the noise got worse when he returned in August. David McSherry Jr., co-owner of the Sunset Tavern, said he planned to install noise panels and take other measures to mitigate the problem.

WASHINGTON COUNTY -- Washington County Public Schools students may continue to use school bus transportation to attend schools outside of their assigned attendance districts if they can board buses already en route to those schools. A vote Tuesday by the Washington County Board of Education continues a provision in the policy that, had it been allowed to expire, would have eliminated that privilege. The vote was 6-0 with board member William H. Staley absent. The school board approved a new transportation policy last year, and the section that allows students to be picked up or dropped off at locations other than their homes would have expired at the end of the school year without school board action.
