Residents in the tiny community of Johnsville jokingly call it a "Leave It to Beaver" kind of place.Most people do their yardwork on the weekends. There is little, if any, conversation about crime. And, other than the frequent rumbling of trucks down the small stretch of Route 75 that is Johnsville's Main Street, daily activity is tranquil.The general store that once offered everything from haircuts to fertilizer is gone. So is Gruber's Garage, and the local antique store.With only a few more than 300 residents, this Frederick County community that rests between Union Bridge and Libertytown would certainly suit June and Ward Cleaver just fine.

State Delegate Susan Krebs and County Commissioner Doug Howard met with a representative of the State Highway Administration on Thursday, Oct. 27, at the intersection to pitch the idea of adding a designated left turn lane on Route 32 northbound.
