Cemetery organization plans events to mark Memorial Day

Rowley proof of experience breeding opportunity
When Bob Rowley learned of the fund-raising efforts to help provide Fort Hill football player Zac Elbin the opportunity to play in the Down Under Bowl this summer in Australia, it became a mere reflex for him to make a significant contribution on Elbin’s behalf. For while very few area high school football players have followed in his footsteps, Rowley, the former Fort Hill great from the late 1950s, had certainly walked in Elbin’s, having faced similar circumstances following his senior year in high school. And thanks to the support of the community, Rowley says he was able to realize an opportunity of a lifetime.

Their health benefits proved to be better than they expected
ObamaCare! Of all the terms the GOP uses as scare tactics, that one is my favorite.
It’s time to ratify Equal Rights Amendment
I have three words I want to say: “It is time.”
By those three words, I am referring to passage of the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA).
Preserve these things for future generations
This is an open letter to the mayor of Cumberland and Allegany County commissioners:
Aggravating as it may be for those who use the east-bound portion of Interstate 68 through Cumberland, the situation is survivable.
They’re gradually implementing Agenda 21
The Times-News reported I “accused” President Bush and President Obama of promoting a socialist’s agenda when I spoke on behalf of the Allegany County Conservative Tea Party Caucus at the commissioner’s meeting recently (“Commissioners discuss mental health, grants,” May 4, Page 1A).
