Dear Honorable Bob Gatto:
Thank you for “sharing” on the telephone this week. I appreciate your feedback about the “wet and dry” “fracking” issues. However, I respectfully do not buy it.
I have been in close contact with Annapolis Advocates. The attached article clearly states the truth about gas drilling in Garrett County (“Don’t be fooled; natural gas industry is alive and well in Md.” Jan. 31 Times-News letter to the editor).
You may also check with Gov. Martin O’Malley’s press “hidden agenda” to gas drill, too. He has arranged special gas drilling work training in the fall of 2012 Anne Arundel College Community College. I sent this to my colleagues that will stop the gas greed gimmicks.
He also sent me a letter stating gas drilling was on the agenda. This just another example of the corruption in our government, to me.
No citizen should be mislead and bullied. It is wrong. We now have a state government that says right is wrong and wrong is right. God cannot bless bad deeds or corrupt government systems.

Dear Honorable Bob Gatto:
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.”
Other groups get county funds, so should CHCO
At a recent county commissioner meeting, members of the Cumberland Historic Cemetery Organization, Maryland Delegate LeRoy Myers Jr. and Pastor Alfred Deas of the Metropolitan A.M.E. Church, Cumberland attended to request from the commissioners $5 dollars of marriage license money be permanently allocated to the CHCO (“Cemetery group renews funding request,” July 25 Times-News, Page 1A).
No public funding for extremist organization
Once again, the Cumberland Historic Cemetery Organization has asked the Allegany County commissioners for public funding (“Cemetery group renews funding request,” July 25 Times-News, Page 1A).
Although many Cumberland streets are in need of repair and improvements, the decision by city and county officials to address Greene Street is a good one.
Why are fair officials targeting firefighters?
The Allegany County Fair has been known for its Demolition Derby for a long time. Several years back the operation of the derby was awarded to the local Cresaptown Volunteer Fire Department.
Here’s a time when W.Va. law took precedence over Md. law
There may be an applicable precedent concerning any assumption that the Potomac Highlands Airport Authority (PHAA) can choose to ignore West Virginia territorial state laws.
- Citizens don’t want Terrapin Run; remove it from the plan
- Hydrofracking won’t spoil just land of those who consent to it
- McCoole Fire Department’s failure must be investigated
- How they held each other could be a lesson for us all
