Dear Honorable Bob Gatto:
Thank you for “sharing” on the telephone this week. I appreciate your feedback about the “wet and dry” “fracking” issues. However, I respectfully do not buy it.
I have been in close contact with Annapolis Advocates. The attached article clearly states the truth about gas drilling in Garrett County (“Don’t be fooled; natural gas industry is alive and well in Md.” Jan. 31 Times-News letter to the editor).
You may also check with Gov. Martin O’Malley’s press “hidden agenda” to gas drill, too. He has arranged special gas drilling work training in the fall of 2012 Anne Arundel College Community College. I sent this to my colleagues that will stop the gas greed gimmicks.
He also sent me a letter stating gas drilling was on the agenda. This just another example of the corruption in our government, to me.
No citizen should be mislead and bullied. It is wrong. We now have a state government that says right is wrong and wrong is right. God cannot bless bad deeds or corrupt government systems.

Dear Honorable Bob Gatto:
Why have the media been silent all this time?
When I read the Cumberland Times-News Editorial this morning, Friday, May 17, entitled, “Outrageous,” I laughed like a kid at a birthday party!
What are chances this much money will be spent on road?
I was intrigued by cost data summarized in reporter Kathy Mellott’s recent article, “Completing southern link of U.S. Route 219 said to be best use of highway funds,” which appeared in the Cumberland Times-News on Tuesday May 14 (Page 1A).
School board should be doing better job with less money
The Allegany County Teachers Association (ACTA) board of directors recently submitted a letter to the editor asking the Allegany County commissioners to fully fund the Board of Education’s budget request for the upcoming fiscal year (“Commissioners should fund school board request,” April 29 Times-News).
Better ‘Click It’
If you notice more police on the highway this week, it’s for a couple of reasons.
Were they really good old days? You decide
When a fellow gets old, it’s not unusual for his mind to wander back to the days of his youth. He may forget where he laid his glasses five minutes ago, yet he can remember events that took place a half a century ago. This is one of the interesting things of old age.
Wearing the poppy tells others people that you remember
On May 25, members of Farrady Unit 24 American Legion Auxiliary, Frostburg, will once again ask the citizens of the community to remember the sacrifices our veterans have made.
Donating your old bike will help someone who really needs it
Once again Bikes for the World is collecting used bicycles at Canal Place, May 25 from 10 a.m. to noon,
Hosting Fresh Air Children can be a memorable experience
I got a phone call, and a little voice said, “Hi Miss Linda, I’m calling to wish you a Happy Mother’s Day.”
Stop buying licenses; let them find the money somewhere else
A few months ago, I received two cards from the National Rifle Association. These were dealing with a legislative alert.
They asked that I should contact Sen. George Edwards and Delegate Kevin Kelly concerning the anti-gun legislation.
Strength of gun laws is not reflected in grisly statistics
According to the FBI’s uniform crime reports, California had the highest number of gun murders in 2011 with 1,220, which makes up 68 percent of all murders in the state that year and equates to 3.25 murders per 100,000 people.
