County Commissioner President Donald I. Dell testified against a bill Thursday that would abolish the existing Baltimore Regional Councilof Governments and replace it with a scaled-down and less costly Baltimore Metropolitan Council.Dell opposed the bill because he believes the legislation creates a council with flaws from the outset. Heobjects to allowing county executives or commissioners to designate appointees to represent their positions on the council."If there is a purpose strong enough to justify the organization,then that purpose certainly should be of such strength and need to require the active and direct participation and control of the electedofficials of the region," Dell said in written testimony.

The passage of Maryland's marriage equality law this year was recognized by many readers as having been the most significant news event of 2012, and they suggested several people who were deserving of recognition as Marylander of the Year for their role in seeing it enacted. To represent them, we chose Del. Maggie McIntosh. Without her effort, marriage equality would not have passed either in the legislature or at the ballot box. She also had a pretty decent year as chairwoman of the House Environmental Matters Committee.

April 16--YORK, Pa. -- As one visitor put it, it seemed like "every Dell rat in the county" came to see the renovations made to the former teen hangout on Starcross Road in Spring Garden Township. About 200 people came during the two-day event to see the changes made to the 4,000-square-foot home and 3-acre lot, which is now on the market for $399,000. Among the visitors was Margaret Elizabeth Brown Schneider, whose father built the house in 1913, shortly after she was born. Schneider will turn 100 on Wednesday and is considered the "oldest living Dell rat. " Walking past the new, stainless-steel appliances and granite countertops in the kitchen Sunday, Schneider's daughter, Kathy Clunk, whispered in her ear. "Could you imagine if your father could see this?"

For sheer political cynicism, it is hard to top the events surrounding the appointment of Robin B. Frazier to the Carroll County Planning Commission. Commissioner Donald I. Dell's crafty political maneuvering would have made 16th century philosopher Niccolo Machiavelli proud.Mr. Dell has never liked the county's zoning laws. He believes that the 1978 zoning ordinance stole value from landowners, particularly those -- like himself --whose land received the agricultural designation. His efforts to dilute the zoning code and supersede the planning commission have gone nowhere.
