The Taneytown Rod and Gun Club can rent its Frederick County land for hunting, hold hunter safety courses and "could shoot in any direction and never hit a house." But it still can't get permission to build a range to hold organized shooting competitions.Club officials are waiting again for Frederick Circuit Judge Herbert Rollins to decide on the adequacy of the dirt road leading to the club's 128-acre property on Shoemaker Road just outside Carroll County."The zoning board ruled the road inadequate, and then the Circuit Court decided that the zoning board should hear additional evidence from us about the use of the road," said Wesley D. Blakeslee, general counsel for the club.

Dr. Marsha Y. Blakeslee didn't recognize the number on the page she received one recent Friday night at home while she was changing her daughter's diaper, but she called back right away because she knew it must be one of her patients. A woman on vacation with her husband in Hawaii was feeling awful, with a fever, a terrible cough and aches all over. Five minutes later, Blakeslee figured out that her patient was suffering from a severe case of bronchitis, so the 39-year-old doctor called in prescriptions to a Hawaiian pharmacy for antibiotics, a chest decongestant and a cough suppressant, and the woman was soon on the mend.
