Rescue squad seeking sub-station in McCoole

The Tri-Towns Rescue has shown an interest in providing a sub-station in McCoole to provide emergency medical services for our area. They are interested in purchasing the old fire station to house their equipment and operate out of.

In order to be able to do this they must know that there is a show of support from the citizens and the citizens willingness to work with them to help make this a success. They cannot do this alone.

Our community needs this service. They are now serving our area from their station all the way to Pratt’s in Rawlings. It takes them a minimum of 15 minutes to go to the Rawlings area from their station. This is way too much time to save a life of someone who is suffering a full arrest, or any type of heart attack.

Please, get behind this project and sign on to support it. Our community is in dire need of this service. Be thankful that someone thinks enough of this area to offer us this service.

Send this message, with your name and phone number printed, to Ambrose Enterprises, 24943 Crooks Ave. SW. McCoole, MD 21562:

“Yes, I will support the efforts of the Tri-Towns Rescue to establish a sub-station for rescue services for the McCoole area.”

By signing this paper will show your support, you will let Tri-Towns know that there will be sufficient support and they can continue to pursue their efforts to purchase this building.

  • Time to do it Time to do it

    It never made sense that criminal background checks were not made on medical license applications in Maryland. Fortunately — for the protection everybody — the background investigations may soon be a matter of routine.

  • If you don’t like the way things are going, vote to change them

    I daily hear complaining about the decline of America. I also hear people say that things will only get worse and there is nothing we can do about it. Admittedly, I used to be like this.

  • Thanks for publishing both sides, but only one was right

    Kudos to the Cumberland Times-News for publishing opposing Reader Commentaries (“Other groups get county funds, so should CHCO” and “No public funding for extremist organization,” July 30); a relatively minor issue, but a great demonstration of our cherished “Freedom of the Press.”

  • Hold on a minute ... we know these guys

    Tom Bosley says this isn’t the Garrett County revival of “Space Cowboys”. They’re just getting the band back together — Bosley, Don Stemple, Oren Yoder and Matt Redinger. They’ve been there, done that, and they’re ready, willing and able to be there and do it again.

    I feel that I have to respond to recent articles about the out of control Potomac Highlands Airport Authority.

  • State would require disclosure of chemicals used at well sites

    A recent article (“Docs want full disclosure of chemicals that would be used in fracking process,” July 21, Page 1A) and editorial (“No secrets: Chemical use in fracking a concern to all,” July 22) in the Times-News might have caused confusion about Maryland’s proposal on public disclosure of chemicals used in hydraulic fracturing.

  • If we don’t sell it to them, somebody else will

    The front page article on coal exports by AP writer Dina Cappiello is one of the most asinine and biased “news” articles I’ve read (“Not in my backyard: U.S. sending dirty coal abroad,” July 29 Times-News, Page 1A).

  • Not a villain Not a villain

    Time was that we looked for heroes. Heroes of the make-believe variety have sold a lot of comic books. We also had real-life heroes like Presidents Franklin D. Roosevelt and John F. Kennedy, whose deaths the whole nation mourned.
    These days, we seem to be more interested in looking for villains. “Vote for me because I’m the good guy” has taken a back seat to “Don’t vote for him, because he’s the bad guy.”
