The Sideling Hill is a long, steep, narrow mountain ridge that runs north to south across western Maryland in Washington County, in the United States. For many centuries, this mountain had blocked the path of many travelers who wished to go from Maryland to northeast West Virginia and vice versa. Travelers had to decide whether they wanted to go around it or over it, but both routes being treacherous, resulted in many mishaps.
The first tunnel was blasted through the rocks of Sideling Hill in 1873–74 for the East Broad Top Railroad. This was followed by at least a couple more. The original railroad tunnel ceased operation in 1956, and the one opened in 1940 is now abandoned. A few decades later, when the Maryland State Highway Administration was laying down Interstate 68 across the state of Maryland, they decided that another tunnel through Sideling Hill would be too expensive. Instead, they decided to cut a deep notch across the hill and lay the road through it. After excavating 10 million tons of rock, engineers discovered they had exposed an unusual geologic structure — a syncline of tightly folded rock strata dating back more than 350 million years.

As congressional candidate in a district that ranges from the hills of Garrett County to the tech corridor along I-270,–Maryland Sen. David Brinkley said he has found something that ties everyone together: dismay over federal spending.
“The common denominator they all have is a concern about federal government spending sucking the economy dry,” he said.
The same concern propelled him to run for the 6th District seat in the U.S. House of Representatives. The Republican legislator from New Market said national debt and bloated government spending isn’t a new problem, but it’s one that keeps getting worse.

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (Legal Newsline) — Maryland Attorney General Douglas Gansler announced this week a campaign aimed at protecting landowners in western Maryland from what he calls “high-pressure sales tactics” by natural gas drilling speculators.
Speculators are seeking to obtain mineral rights in the Maryland portion of the Marcellus Shale, a large underground rock formation stretching from upstate New York to southwestern Virginia.
The region is rich in natural gas deposits — estimated to contain 250 to 500 trillion cubic feet of the valuable energy resource.
Landowners whose properties sit above the Marcellus Shale should know their legal rights and potential risks from leasing their land to energy companies interested in drilling for natural gas using the process known as hydraulic fracturing or “fracking,” Gansler said Tuesday.
