MIDDLETOWN — Away from the fast-paced urban life of Frederick, beyond the housing developments on the fringe and the small towns that add character to the landscape of Frederick County, are hills and fields, creeks and woodlands.

It's those open lands that lure tourists to imagine what the area might have been like as battles raged during the Civil War, or even during the early days of this country when pioneers began their push westward. And it's those lands that Middletown residents Tod and Barry Salisbury hopes will be preserved, through the Maryland Environmental Trust's conservation easement program.

    I believe that the majority of us agree tha the open areas of the County are appealing, and wish they could be left alone. Many are hurting and shaking their heads over what has become of what once were beautiful and open areas in Walkersville, Urbana, Thurmont, etc. Welcome to the days of developement and sprawl, Middletown.
