Gypsy moth problem to be discussed tonight NORTH COUNTY -- Linthicum * Ferndale * Brooklyn Park * Pumphrey


January 11, 1993|By ROSALIE M. FALTER

Richard Olsen, county gypsy moth program coordinator, will be the guest speaker at the Linthicum-Shipley Improvement Association general meeting at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, at Linthicum Elementary School.

Mr. Olsen will discuss the gypsy moth egg masses that the Maryland Department of Agriculture has found in the northwest area of Linthicum Heights, behind the homes on Woodland, Maple and Kingwood roads and Edric Drive.

The department's study recommends that the area should be treated and that Linthicum should be considered for the 1993 Gypsy Moth Program, if the community association is interested.

The association will vote on whether to participate in the program, and on how much money it would allocate.

Residents are encouraged to attend the meeting to learn more about gypsy moths, their life cycle and how to control them, which includes block aerial treatment with Bacillus thuringiensis.

If you disagree with the treatment, attend the meeting.


The Woman's Club of Linthicum Heights will meet at 10:30 a.m. tomorrow at the clubhouse, 110 N. Hammonds Ferry Road. Capt. Charles L. Gosnell Jr. of the 2nd Maryland Regiment's Light Infantry Co. will make local history come alive with a presentation called "Maryland in the American Revolution."

Captain Gosnell has studied American and Maryland military history. He has taught history for 27 years and been a teacher at Andover/North County High School since 1967. He makes his classes interesting by displaying authentic military uniforms and equipment.

He is involved in military re-enactments and makes his own authentic costumes.

A potluck luncheon and social time will follow the program.
