With the summer months now in full swing, road maintenance projects, including complete resurfacing, slurry sealing, and tarring and chipping, are ramping up around Washington County. Portions of Downsville Pike (Md. 632) and Virginia Avenue (U.S. 11) - both state-maintained roads - have received extensive work lately, prompting a Cearfoss reader to question through Mail Call why other county roads in need of repair haven't received the same level of attention. “I read here in the paper where they repaved the Downsville Pike and the Virginia Avenue and everything,” the reader said, noting that area roads like Resh, Mount Tabler, Spade, Keysers Ridge and Broadfording Church roads are being tarred and chipped instead.

Jim Hurd said. Hurd said a woman was upstairs getting ready for bed at about 1:30 a.m., when two men entered the home and stole less than $1,000.
