The Taneytown Rod and Gun Club can rent its Frederick County land for hunting, hold hunter safety courses and "could shoot in any direction and never hit a house." But it still can't get permission to build a range to hold organized shooting competitions.Club officials are waiting again for Frederick Circuit Judge Herbert Rollins to decide on the adequacy of the dirt road leading to the club's 128-acre property on Shoemaker Road just outside Carroll County."The zoning board ruled the road inadequate, and then the Circuit Court decided that the zoning board should hear additional evidence from us about the use of the road," said Wesley D. Blakeslee, general counsel for the club.

The Dug Hill Rod and Gun Club has asked county officials for permission to use a target range it built on its property four years ago without county approval.Club members were unaware that they needed permission from the Board of Zoning Appeals to build the range, club trustee Clair D. "Hap" Baker Jr. said."A disgruntled former member" notified the county last year that the range had been built, he said. In June 1991, the county ordered the club to stop using the range.Three club members told the board Wednesday afternoon that the new range would not increase noise at the site, in the 4100 block of Wine Road north of Manchester.

Yesterday, I got a big bang out of being at the Associated Gun Clubs of Baltimore campus just outside downtown Marriottsville. So did lots of others, from Boy Scouts to office workers. Ellen Radliff, a Frederick resident who works at a mortgage company, experienced the powerful kick of a 50-caliber rifle and the fun of hanging out with her father, Gene. "I'm enjoying it," she said, after handling several of the guns. "I'm hoping this will become a regular thing for my father and I to do."

An aging, little-used and somewhat dingy building in Taneytown that was once a gun club's headquarters has become a warm, welcoming and safe space filled with children's lively laughter and their toys and books. The Rod and Gun Club, a stark, concrete building with an uninviting dark interior, has been transformed into the Taneytown Head Start Center, a sunny place where 3- and 4-year-olds learn, socialize and play. "Here was a cinderblock building virtually untouched since it was built," said Councilman Darryl Hale.

Once upon a time, politicians courted sportsmen. Maybe they weren't true lovers of the outdoors, but pols loved the he-man image and the vote potential that came from talking the talk. So they'd drag themselves out of bed before dawn and wrap themselves in camo or hop in a fishing boat for the photo opportunity. One of my favorite pictures shows an obviously uptight Thomas E. Dewey, New York governor and 1948 presidential candidate, and a trout. Cold fish meets dead fish - talk about separated at birth.
