On Thursday, Aug 4. my wife and I joined about 200 other people for a hearing in the county's George Howard Building. The subject was a study and proposed land acquisition for a road spur from the west side of Route 108 in Clarksville to Auto Drive in Clarksville. The proposal is a very poor solution to a problem that may or may not exist. The impact of the proposal on businesses and property owners affected is intolerable. It is difficult to see how or why the Howard County planning people would waste their time and county funds on an unnecessary study to reach an unsatisfactory conclusion.

County residents expect a lot out from their local government, and we want our neighborhoods to thrive. I believe that the Howard County government is trying to improve my community. I don't always agree with the county, but that doesn't mean it is not working in our best interest, though it might not always be obvious. My neighbors and I talk a lot about what we think Clarksville will look like in the next five to 10 years, and we seem to circle back to one sentiment: We don't want Route 108 to grow and change without a plan.

Dan Geraghty first picked up an electric guitar when he was 10 and now, at 17, he nearly always has his hands on one. Though just last spring he was a junior at River Hill High School, right now he and the other four band members of Hollywood Ending are contestants in "Next Big Thing," a Radio Disney talent competition that began its fourth season this month. "I've wanted to play music forever," said the Clarksville resident last week from aboard a tour bus traveling from New Jersey to Pennsylvania.
