A new Taco Bell restaurant could be open in the Greencastle area before the end of the year. “I think we should be open this year. I hope before Christmas,” Tom Cook, director of development for BurgerBusters Inc., said Friday. BurgerBusters Inc., based in Virginia Beach, Va., operates franchisee organizations for Taco Bell in North America. “If all goes well, we could have the Taco Bell up and running by the fourth quarter of this year,” he said. Until you get all of your permits, it's difficult to judge when the store will open, Cook said.

I normally don't approve of marginally pointless lawsuits, but in this case I'm willing to make an exception. A California woman is suing Taco Bell for hinting around that its beef filling might contain some actual beef. Which it does, of course, but only 35 percent's worth, the lawsuit contends. The rest is filler, all the stuff you would expect — corn, soy, oats, and so on. The only thing that really grabs your attention is the "anti-dusting agent. " As is getting to be the case in these matters, the reaction to the news is far more interesting than the news itself: 1. A Miami newspaper noted that Taco Bell had pulled its advertising from a promiscuous television show on MTV, but then made a pretty good argument that Taco Bell is worse for you than the show.

The restaurant will be owned by Burgerbusters Inc., which also owns the Taco Bell restaurants on Dual Highway and Wesel Boulevard.

A Tuesday afternoon fire in an exterior wall at Taco Bell at 1600 Wesel Blvd. caused about $5,000 in damages, a Hagerstown Fire Department official said. Firefighters had to remove a section of the rear outside wall to put out the fire, Capt. Mark Cleck said. It is unclear what caused the fire, which fire marshals are investigating, Cleck said. The fire, which was reported at 5:09 p.m., caused light smoke to accumulate in the restaurant, Cleck said. Taco Bell workers had evacuated everyone from the building by the time firefighters arrived.

SHARPSBURG - Sharpsburg officials are worried about tourism and economic development from a proposed Civil War Heritage Area and the possibility of Taco Bell coming to the area. A California couple won a bid to buy 15 acres on Sharpsburg Pike across from Battleview Market, just outside the town limits, said Vice Mayor Sidney Gale. The second proposal for the land was from a man who wanted to build a feed mill and Taco Bell there, Gale said. "We couldn't stop that and that scares me," Gale told the Washington County Commissioners during a joint meeting last week.

These were three words I never thought I'd hear linked: "National Tomato Crisis. " Yet there was cable news dude standing in his "Situation Room," acting all panicky, as if zombies were rising from their graves and voting Republican. Yes, I know it's the job of these folks to breathlessly make every spoiled turnip sound like a presidential assassination, but still, there was something in his voice that caught my attention. I don't know how many people have died from this crisis, but judging from the guy's tone, it must be in the thousands.

By Anne Chovey Special to The Herald-Mail Move over, Taco Bell. There is a new Mexican restaurant in town and this one bills itself as having authentic Mexican food. El Paisa Taqueria y Tienda is on East Washington Street, a block or so down from Hagerstown's Public Square. My friend, Tom Atoe, and I recently stopped in for lunch to check it out. El Paisa Taqueria y Tienda is an interesting name and I was curious as to what it meant. With some guidance from our waitress and the Internet, I was able to figure out that "Paisa" means a countryman or someone who is just like you (think "paesan," in Italian.)
