Carroll County, take a minute to stop and cheer on your local law enforcement officials tomorrow asRead More they run (and I mean run, like 18 miles from Sykesville!) for a great cause. And then June 8-10 cheer on our local Special Olympics athletes at Towson as they participate in the Maryland State Special Olympics.

I was very proud to see Maryland State Comptroller Comptroller Franchot come to Carroll County toRead More deliver the William Donald Schaefer Annual Excellence Award. As a former Assistant State Comptroller who was also friends and worked with former State Comptrollers, J. Millard Tawes, Louis l. Goldstein, William Donald Schaefer Peter Franchot, these gentlemen regardless how far right some of these County Commissioners are, these state wide public officials alwys had nothing but good in their hearts for Carroll County and its citizens. As William Donald Schaefer used to end his remarks, Maryland"s Best and "Do It Now"William Donald Schaefer will never be forgotten as he will always be known as the Maryland 's best well known Politican, Baltimore City Council President, Mayor, Governor, Comptroller . HE DID IT ALL and as a Democrat

Romeo, Franchot did say yesterday that many people know Schaefer for his big projects -- stadiumsRead More and the Inner Harbor -- but the people who really knew him knew he was more dedicated to the "small people", the ones who needed it most.

Kim. Thanks a lot for the article on Governor Schaefer. Franchot defeted Governor SchaeferRead More re-election term for State Comptroller, and those of us who worked for and knew Schaefer well, he never took this defete by Franchot lightly. By the way . Schaefer gave most of his assets, to his dedicated employees.

The Kentlands Community Foundation supports and encourages volunteerism in many programs includingRead More the Go Green Group. The Go Green group educates and advocates for green practices in our small community in a BIG way. Our community leaders and volunteers make Green fashionable.

It seems unlikely that "one comment" will net $500. As Patch explains, "we'll pick aRead More comment at random and the organization gets a check. There is one shot per commenter but other commenters who support the group are welcome — so the more comments an organization receives, the better chance it has at winning. If you know of a worthy nonprofit, have it mobilize its supporters to leave comments." It actually sounds to me more like a way for Patch to boost traffic on its site so AOL can go to advertisers and Wall Street investors and say, see--it's working! To those offended by my cynicism, sorry, but when the pool of comments includes people who have commented twice, and people with unrecognizable names, the word "randomness" loses its meaning.
