In the race for Union Bridge mayor, former Town Councilman Scott W. Davis is challenging incumbent Bret D. Grossnickle, who was appointed when Perry L. Jones Jr. was elected to the Carroll County Board of Commissioners in 2002. Three men are also campaigning for two seats that are up for grabs on the five-member council, which currently has four female members. One of those seats belongs to Councilwoman Sarah Black, who has decided not to run for re-election. The council's only male, incumbent Donald D. Wilson, will face challengers John T. "Tommy" Hyde III and Edgar C. Wentz in the May 8 municipal nonpartisan election.

Two candidates are seeking Tuesday to be elected mayor of Union Bridge, a post left open when Perry Jones, the town's most visible political face for a decade, moved into county leadership. Brett Grossnickle has been in office for five months as Jones' appointed replacement and faces a challenge from community activist Joan McKee. Union Bridge voters will also vote to fill two seats on the five-member town council. Jones, who was elected to Carroll County's board of commissioners last year, said he doesn't think either mayoral candidate would have a hard time following him. "I think there are a lot of projects ongoing that they can just keep following through on," he said.

MYERSVILLE -- With floodwaters streaming across the road and their vehicle stalled, a married couple and a family friend were stranded. A pickup truck driver stopped to help, authorities said, and the trio - saved from the rising waters - climbed into the open truckbed. They were on their way down Wolfsville Road in Frederick County in Tuesday night's rain. By then, the water had topped Jimmy Grossnickle's fence posts and was running 4 feet - maybe deeper - across Wolfsville Road past his farm.

Union Bridge does not have the resources or the will to maintain a newly constructed and heavily used road that a proposed annexation could bring into the town, the mayor said yesterday. Bret D. Grossnickle, mayor of Carroll's smallest town, told the county commissioners that he is "uneasy about taking ownership" of Shepherds Mill Road, a 1.25-mile stretch that opened to traffic nearly a year ago and cost $2.2 million. The road, part of a $5.5 million economic development project funded mostly by the state, primarily serves heavy-truck traffic from Lehigh Cement Co. The town is negotiating an annexation with the owner of an industrial parcel along Shepherds Mill Road.

The Union Bridge Town Council has approved an agreement with Carroll County that will allow Francis Scott Key High School to connect to the town's sewage-treatment plant - resolving a longstanding problem for the county. Douglas Myers, the county's director of public works, said yesterday that "at least a minimum of 10 months" would be needed to complete the hookup. That allows four months for design work, two months to advertise and choose a contractor, and four months of work, Myers said.

Union Bridge officials said yesterday that they will probably scrap a proposal to start fining property owners for repeat nuisance calls that tie up their police service, but are hoping to come up with another solution. Mayor Bret D. Grossnickle said the council will likely start looking for other options in dealing with repeated police calls to the same addresses for loud music, drinking, arguing and fighting. Grossnickle's comments came the day after residents overflowed Monday night's public hearing in nearly unanimous opposition to a proposed ordinance that they characterized as overly punitive, possibly illegal and a deterrent to calling police for help.
