The Reese fire company lost an appeal yesterday to stop the Carroll County Firemen's Association from withholding county funds because of a dispute over ambulance billing. The Maryland Court of Special Appeals upheld a Carroll County Circuit Court decision denying Reese's injunction against the association, which oversees the county's 14 volunteer fire companies. In its decision, the court said the association "acted within the scope of its authority." Despite Reese's claims, the association's bylaws allow for punitive action against an individual fire company, the court wrote in a seven-page decision issued yesterday.

"We think it's going to be a good year, but it won't be a record year like the last five have been," said Tom Quattlebaum, chief executive officer of the Anne Arundel County Association of Realtors Inc. "There will be some market correction."
