Feeser hired as assistant to commission president

Carroll County Board of Commissioners President Julia Walsh Gouge has hired Tim Feeser as a special assistant.

A lifelong county resident, Feeser, 44, has been a manager in the grocery retail industry for the past 26 years. He lives near Manchester with his wife, Lynne, and their two daughters.

Feeser will earn $32,339 annually for the 30-hour-a-week position. He succeeds Frank Johnson, who was named the county's director of legislative services in August.

Feeser is active in the community, serving as chief financial officer of the North East Social Action Program and coordinator of a local food pantry. He also is chairman of the Church Council at Shiloh United Methodist Church.

He also is treasurer of Trout Unlimited's Patapsco Valley chapter.

"I have known Tim all his life. I have worked with him over the years in our church, and I have confidence he will represent me well with the citizens of Carroll County," Gouge said.

Curfman ties up loose ends as his retirements nears

Carroll County Comptroller Eugene C. Curfman tidied up a few loose ends yesterday as he prepares for retirement. He asked the commissioners to approve his replacement on the pension fund board and to appoint an administrator for the county's credit card account.

"Does this mean, if we don't approve, that Gene will stay?" Commissioner Perry L. Jones Jr. asked.

"No," answered Curfman. "It means there would be no more investments for the pension fund and no more employees would get credit cards."

At Curfman's request, the commissioners will expand the adjustment period on water and sewer bills to two cycles for customers who make efforts to repair leaks. The board will draft an amendment to the county water and sewer plan that allows for the measure.

Fired Sinclair reporter to speak at McDaniel

Jon Leiberman, former investigative reporter and Washington bureau chief for Sinclair Broadcast Group, will present "Why I Spoke Out" at noon tomorrow in Room 108 of Hill Hall at McDaniel College.

The talk is free to the public.

Leiberman says he was fired from his post at Sinclair Broadcast Group because he criticized as biased the company's decision to air a program based on allegations against Democratic presidential nominee Sen. John Kerry as news.

The company says he violated company policy by speaking to the media about company business.
