Isn't the governor supposed to represent the views of the constituents who elected him to office? The governor is opposed to the death penalty, so no murderers have been executed. Does that represent the wishes of the majority of Marylanders? The governor is for in-state tuition for illegals, which the majority of Marylanders are against. UnderMartin O'Malley's administration, we have seen increases in our taxes, tolls and fees. Now this man wants to add more to the already-high cost of gasoline.

Friends of Harford strongly opposes Bill 11-48 Gas Station Reforms pending before the Harford County Council. The "reforms" it proposes requires the council to surrender its authority and responsibility to protect Harford's private drinking water wells from gasoline contamination. Harford's zoning code already provides a process for "nonconforming" rural gas stations to expand. The process includes a public hearing so citizens whose homes and businesses will be affected can be heard.

Mandatory testing of groundwater at Maryland service stations has led to the discovery of a significant level of a gasoline additive in residential wells in northern Baltimore County. Tests showed that two wells at homes near a gasoline station had concentrations of methyltertiary butyl ether - commonly known as MTBE - at dozens of times the level deemed safe by the state. Three other wells had much smaller traces of the chemical. The residential wells were tested after the discovery of contaminated groundwater at a Citgo station operated by Wally's Country Store in Parkton.

Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. proposed regulations yesterday aimed at preventing residential drinking water from being contaminated by potentially cancer-causing gasoline additives that leak from pipes beneath service stations. Harford County residents have criticized the state for not acting quickly enough after reports surfaced that more than 100 wells in the Fallston area were tainted with the chemical MTBE, some from an Exxon gas station. Ehrlich's proposed rules would require the installation of double-walled pipes and leak sensors on underground storage systems for new gas stations built in areas of the state where most residents get their water from wells.

He has purchased a full-page ad explaining his plan. Mr. Tevis even invited people to attend a "public hearing" where he gladly fielded questions about his project.If other developers followed Mr. Tevis' example, they wouldn't be so universally despised. When Mr. Tevis initially proposed his gasoline station and convenience store project, he proposed constructing a rather utilitarian-looking project.

Crown Central Petroleum Corp., the owner of refineries and gas stations whose Baltimore roots stretch back nearly 100 years, has hired an investment banker to help it sell the company - as a whole, or piece by piece. Crown has hired New York-based Park Avenue Equity Management LLC to help sell its two Texas gasoline refineries, its 10 product terminals and its 315 retail locations. "While this was a hard decision, we believe that, in view of the difficult environment faced by independent refiners and retailers during the past year and a half, it is the right thing to do," Frank B. Rosenberg, Crown's president and chief executive officer and a great-grandson of the company's founder, said yesterday in a news release.
