Proposed Md. fracking regulations are too restrictive

As president of the Garrett County Farm Bureau and the Energy and Property Rights Coalition, I would like to express our concerns about Maryland’s proposed hydraulic fracturing regulations and ask that they be placed on hold for further consideration.

NRP officers to test new 'iceboat' on Deep Creek Lake

Ice Boat

From the Maryland Department of Natural Resources

There’s a new boat on Deep Creek Lake that rises above it all — literally.

Maryland Natural Resources Police officers are training on a 32-foot airboat, capable of skimming above winter’s ice to quickly reach an emergency to provide comfort and assistance.

NRP 149, purchased a little more than a year ago with a federal grant, is one of the law enforcement agency’s largest vessels and one of its most specialized. It has a top speed of well over 100 mph and it takes a delicate touch to make it run straight and true.

Fracking, and the workers it draws, change a region's cultural landscape

People muster data, facts and studies to support their positions about using hydraulic fracturing (fracking) to extract previously inaccessible oil and gas deposits. The number of scientists standing on one side of the debate over whether it’s harmful to the environment rarely convinces anyone on the other side to switch camps. It appears to be a stalemate.

Md. Senate OKs speed limit boost to 70 on state highways

The Maryland Senate has voted to raise the speed limit from 65 to 70 mph on state highways.

The Senate voted 39-7 for the measure on Thursday.

Senate approval marks a milestone for the bill, which passed the House of Delegates last year, but stalled in a Senate committee. A similar bill is pending in the House this year.

Sen. George Edwards, a Garrett County Republican, is the sponsor of the measure. He says other states have a speed limit of 70 mph, and that the increase would not be mandatory statewide.

But opponents say it’s dangerous. Sen. James Brochin, a Baltimore County Democrat, says raising the speed limit will cause some drivers to push it to 80 mph. Brochin says he thinks that’s too fast.
