On the record inconsistencies during Monrovia hearing
Posted: March 30, 2014

On March 19, the Frederick County Planning Commission unanimously approved the revised Monrovia Town Center proposal. The process isn’t done yet. There are still more hearings ahead of us, but I want to point out a few things. Everyone has heard about the big changes but you may not know about some of the subtler changes. You see, those subtler changes tell a big story about developers and county staff working hand in hand, with the citizens left on the outside, and commissioners not even questioning the changes before their eyes.

Correcting just a few historical mistakes in Ukraine letter
Posted: March 30, 2014

Bob Hilton’s letter “Not quite equivalent,” published by The News-Post on March 24, is riddled with historical inaccuracies. Bob, as well as others, have tried to compare the Russian annexation of the Crimea with the German invasion of the Czechoslovakian Sudetenland. This is an invalid comparison. Bob states that the Nazi-Soviet non-aggression pact was signed before the German occupation of the Sudetenland — a totally incorrect statement.
