Frederick County teachers will receive a 3 percent across-the-board raise in a contract hammered out between the school board and the teachers union, according to an announcement Monday afternoon. “I’m pleased we reached a settlement but I clearly believe and know in my heart and in my head, that the teachers of Frederick County deserve much more,” said Kim Lewis, president of the Frederick County Teachers Association.

After years of waiting and hoping and pleading for federal funds, a host of public officials broke ground Monday morning on the missing interchanges to connect I-70 and I-270. The $37.2 million project will allow drivers coming from Baltimore on I-70 to head south on I-270 east toward Baltimore directly. Currently drivers must get off the highway and travel up or down an increasingly congested section of Md. 85 to make the connection.

The first raccoon out of the trap looked anxious, and rightfully so. It was about to be sedated and tested for rabies antibodies along with six others caught in county traps as part of a rabies experiment Monday. This week may prove to be the most telling in a two-year, $10,000 experiment aimed at reducing the number of rabies cases in Frederick County. Trappers and veterinarians on Monday retrieved 18 traps set Sunday to catch racoons at Fort Detrick’s Area B.
