To the Editor:
Last year, through your generous contributions, we were blessed to provide a full Thanksgiving meal for over 50 families in the Western Maryland area. This was only possible through your enormous generosity.
This year, through a collaboration of the Western Maryland Food Bank and the generous citizens of the community, we want to help as many families as possible this Thanksgiving. We know there is a genuine need out there and we would love to fill it. Through your contributions, we can help so many. Your contribution is tax deductible and is much needed and appreciated.
Our request: while performing your holiday shopping this year, please pick up an additional turkey for a family less fortunate than yourself.
Contact Pastor Scott Barrow, 240-920-2279, or Jerome Younger, 240-682-0195, to arrange for your contribution to be picked up. Due to our work schedules, please call after 3 p.m. If you are unable to provide a turkey, a financial contribution would be greatly appreciated and we will pick the turkey up for you.
Meals will be distributed from the Community Food Bank, 637 N. Centre St., on Saturday, Nov. 23, beginning at 10 a.m. until all donations have been distributed.
May God move you to contribute and make this year’s effort another success.
Jerome C. Younger

Money wasted on roundabout could have been spent in city

Who doesn’t love a mystery, especially when it involves gold.
Theories are springing up around a $10 million trove of gold coins found on their land by a Northern California couple who wisely have chosen to remain anonymous.
It came as a rather sad surprise to read recently that, regardless of how remorseful a dog appears to be when scolded, it has no idea why it is being admonished and probably doesn’t care (“Behaviorists: Dogs feel no shame despite the look,” March 1 Times-News, Page 4A).
There must be better ways to promote cycling
It is a very rare event for me to agree with any politician irrespective of their party. And here I find myself agreeing with Delegate Kevin Kelly (“Plan to establish bike lanes is both absurd and dangerous,” Feb. 27 Times-News).
Roundabout could have been the scene of a fatal accident
I am writing this letter because I am concerned with the safety of this fiasco Maryland calls a roundabout. I call it a death trap waiting to happen. (“Runaway SHA truck injures driver,” Feb. 26 Times-News, Page 3B)
