The chickens are coming home to roost. Years of publicly subsidized pro-growth planning (some would say no planning) have brought us to this point. Our schools are overcrowded. Taxes continue to rise. Traffic is becoming unbearable and even deadly. These problems continue to worsen. Rather than control development and require developers to pay the full cost of schools, roads, fire, etc., the Washington County Commissioners keep moving full speed ahead in the wrong direction.

By CLYDE FORD Staff Writer, Charles Town CHARLES TOWN, W.Va. - Charles Town residents who were ticketed recently for parking in the wrong direction may soon get a refund. Charles Town Police Chief Mike Aldridge said the municipal court recently dismissed 11 of the traffic tickets because the law had not been enforced in at least four years. The tickets for the offense come with a $20 fine. Eight Charles Town residents had paid the $20 without taking it to court.

The ones who molded me, And cast me from my shell, The ones who have always loved me, And never failed to teach me well. On the highest precipice, Or in the lowest gorge, They are my guardian angels, Ever since I was born. Who else would carry my burdens, When I cannot? Who else would lead me to the light, When I am distraught? Who else would cherish me In the manner that they do? How would I manage without those two? Only they can fill my heart, With happiness - or take it away.

I thought I died and went to Indiana on Tuesday night. This isn’t so much a conversation about my final resting place. If I went in the wrong direction it would be like living in Gary, though. This is more of a cinematic reference. It was the feeling I had while watching Heritage Academy face Broadfording Christian Academy in a battle for the Mason Dixon Christian Conference lead. While watching the style and flavor of the game unfold, I felt like I was in Hickory High School, the subject of the classic basketball flick, Hoosiers.

“Oh, Lord, Professor Allan Powell has read another book, and has given his usual slanted book report. This time he claims that you have to be crazy in order to be a good leader. Wow.” - Smithsburg “How soon we forget. It wasn't too long ago that Texas wanted to secede from the Union - you know, the United States of America. Now they have the nerve to run three candidates for president. Said that the government interfered too much, but when they had drought and firestorms, they weren't too shy about asking the U.S. government for help.” - Hagerstown “I was wondering if there's anything anybody can do about people across the street parking the wrong way. They almost pulled out in front of me and almost hit me. They're always parked on the wrong side of the street, in the wrong direction.” - Hagerstown “I'm tired of reading people commenting about Tim Tebow, and how the jokes about him are tasteless and disrespectful.

Robert J. Samuelson is an accomplished economist with more than adequate credentials to report on the relative status of social classes and social mobility in America. Given the steady stream of reports showing the widening gap between the wealthy and the lower ranks of society, it is a surprise to witness his over-solicitous concern for the wealthy in his “ It's Not Easy Being Rich” (Washington Post, Oct. 10 ). One's first emotive reaction to pleas for sympathy for the rich is to blurt out, “It's still a lot better than other options on the table.” To which some might say. “Take a close look around and you'll see that it's not easy being in the middle or lower classes, either.” But such a retort gets no mileage and the respondent is characterized as an envious loser.
