Terry Baker, 50, of Clear Spring, has filed as a Republican for a seat on the Washington County Commission. Baker said growth and rising property assessments and taxes are among the issues that prompted his run for county office. Baker currently serves as vice mayor in Clear Spring. He ran for the Clear Spring Town Council in 2003. Housing prices have made it hard for young people to achieve "the American dream" of owning a home, and rising assessments are making it difficult for existing homeowners to pay their taxes, he said.

HAGERSTOWN - The Washington County Commissioners voted 4-1 Tuesday to formally approve an agreement for a relationship between Washington County and Jinhua City in China. Commissioners President John F. Barr signed a memorandum establishing the "friendship-city" relationship during a trip to China last month. Barr said he signed the agreement because he thought the commissioners had reached a consensus in support of it, but Commissioner Kristin B. Aleshire called for a formal vote on the matter.

Impatience is not a virtue To the editor: This letter is to address those individuals with traffic concerns caused by a Washington County school bus on Jefferson Boulevard transporting special needs students to Marshall Street School. If waiting for these children to get on and off their bus causes you to be so inconvenienced you find it necessary to blow your horn, shout obscenities, make obscene gestures and call the Board of Education to complain, let me offer the following suggestions: Leave five minutes earlier so you are not "stuck" behind the bus, travel an alternative route or possibly use those two or three minutes to count your blessings that your children are "perfect" and do not require adaptive strollers and wheelchair lifts to go to school.

Taking advantage of its AA bond rating, Washington County secured a roughly 3.50 percent interest rate Tuesday for the sale of 2011 public improvement bonds. The Board of County Commissioners voted 4-1 to approve the sale of $14.17 million in Maryland Public Improvement Bonds to Janney Montgomery Scott Inc., which offered the lowest interest rate of nine bidders. The bonds are to be used for county projects in fiscal 2011.   Commissioners President Terry Baker voted against the bond issue because it included funds for a road through the Mount Aetna Farms property, a controversial project Baker has been asking the commissioners to put on hold.

In its first action in open session, the new Washington County Board of Commissioners voted unanimously Tuesday to appoint Terry Baker as its president and John F. Barr as vice president. The decision was in keeping with county tradition, in which the commissioner who receives the most votes is typically named the board’s president and the commissioner who receives the second-highest number of votes becomes vice president. Baker, who was the vice president last term, received 25,360 votes, the most among commissioner candidates in this year’s general election.

Why Terry Baker deserves your vote To the editor: I have known Terry Baker since he was 14 years old (36 years) in several capacities. Terry burst onto the local running scene at Williamsport High School, where he was a state champion distance runner in cross country and track and field. He, his coach, Glenn Smith, and his teammates were extremely tough, but worthy opponents for all of us here in Washington County, and the state of Maryland. Mr. Baker, a true native son, broadened his horizons to the national and international levels through running at HCC, Auburn University and the USATF circuit.
