The Frederick News-Post plans to revive its Monday edition, which was suspended nearly three years ago in a cost-cutting move, and will return next month to seven-day publication, the newspaper announced Wednesday. The Monday edition, to restart Feb. 6, will have its own design and features and will emphasize business and sports coverage, publisher Geordie Wilson said. More than 100 papers in the United States have eliminated publication days in the past few years to save money, but Wilson said readers in the Frederick market "have made it abundantly clear that they want the print edition of their local paper on their doorstep seven days a week.

It's one of those scenarios that would be hard to believe in a movie.  As John Waters embarked on the cross-country hitchhiking trip that is memorialized in his recently published book, "Carsick," a 20-year-old Tea Party-affiliated legislator from Frederick County offered him a ride.  And, to make it all the more cinematic, the Bible-thumping college student and the "Pope of Trash" hit it off.  " We don't see eye to eye on a lot of...

A Maryland state delegate says going green includes letting your clothes fly in the breeze. Frederick County Democrat Galen Clagett says he will reintroduce a bill in the 2010 General Assembly to prohibit homeowners associations from banning the use of clotheslines. The bill died in committee in the last legislative session. Clagett told The Frederick News-Post that associations would still be able to regulate where clotheslines are placed to keep them from being an eyesore. Clagett says the idea got his attention because his commercial real-estate business helps manage homeowners associations.

Tracey Lynn Kirkpatrick would be 37 today, a wife and mother, perhaps, and maybe an attorney. Instead, she is mourned by her parents, her family and friends. Twenty years after her murder, she is also never far from the minds of the Frederick police investigators, who have worked since March 15, 1989, to solve the mystery of her violent death. The Kirkpatrick family and Frederick police marked the anniversary of Tracey's killing with a brief vigil last night at the Westridge Shopping Center, where she was stabbed to death at 17. Police hope that fresh attention to the cold case might finally bring them the final clues they need to bring the killer to justice.

Sunday in an op-ed in the Frederick News-Post , former delegate and county commissioner Charles Jenkins (no relation to Frederick County Sheriff Chuck Jenkins) waxed poetic at great length about how his former colleague Jan Gardner was a shoo-in to be the first Frederick County Executive next year.  I guess they can cancel the election, for a former delegate hath spoken... Clearly, Mr. Jenkins is still smarting about his 2010 Primary election defeat to current Del. Michael Hough in the Republican Primary.

Lefty Kreh is to fly-fishing what James Naismith was to basketball and, perhaps, what Elvis was to rock 'n' roll. Not only is the now 87-year-old Kreh credited with helping invent the sport in the late 1940s, he later popularized it by writing more than 30 books as well as writing an outdoors column, including an 18-year stint at The Baltimore Sun. On Monday, Kreh will be honored - begrudgingly - when a seven-mile trail at Gunpowder Falls State...

The Frederick County Board of Commissioners voted Tuesday night to adopt an ordinance making English the county's official language, the Frederick News-Post has reported. According to the newspaper, the board voted 4-1 to approve the law, which replaces a previous nonbinding resolution. The measure appears more symbolic than substantive, and does not override federal or state laws requiring the use of other languages in certain circumstances. Nor does it prevent county officials from using other languages in emergencies or to communicate with criminal suspects.

The Delaplaine and Randall families, which own the company, are talking with industry brokers about ways to reorganize the business, said Jake Tamse, company spokesman.

Jaimy Gordon says she was a student at Antioch College when John Updike's "The Centaur" taught her that a writer could use "outsized metaphors" and still wield "the power to keep people interested because they need to know what happens in a book. It's the most powerful tool for any writer of narrative fiction. Who in his or her right mind would relinquish it?" In 1964, Updike won the National Book Award for "The Centaur," his third novel. In 2010, Gordon won the National Book Award for her fourth novel, "Lord of Misrule.
