First county executive, council will set course for new charter
Posted: July 12, 2014

Your editorial advocating the charter enhancement of the new county council’s participation in the budget is critically important. The new executive really has tremendous budget authority. The council should have a greater role.

Two types of landfills, but only one type of incinerator
Posted: July 12, 2014

Commissioner Blaine Young indicates there are two types of landfills, “ones that leak and ones that will leak.” He has a point. However, there’s really just one type of incinerator — it puts toxic chemicals into the air, creating increased health and environmental problems, and costs taxpayers a whole lot of money for a long time.

Pay as you throw will encourage illegal dumping
Posted: July 12, 2014

I’m responding to your Thursday editorial, “Pay as you throw.” Years ago, if you were a Frederick County resident, you could throw trash in the dump for no extra cost beyond your taxes. Some residents never used this option, and others used it frequently. The powers that be in their wisdom decreed that this wasn’t fair. So the rules were changed, and a fee based on weight was instituted to rectify this unfairness. Everyone agreed at the time that it was a great solution.

Other side of the SS disability story
Posted: July 11, 2014

Your editorial in the July 4 edition correctly expressed outrage that nearly 200 of the approximately 1,400 administrative law judges employed by the Social Security Administration approved 85 percent or more of the disability cases they heard. Of course, some people (claimants) who do not meet the statutory standard for disability have been approved by these judges.
