IF CARROLL COUNTY is to have cohesive land use planning, state Sen. Larry Haines' effort to exempt small, rural residential subdivisions from the county's adequate facilities standards is horrendously misguided. This bill has little to do with allowing farmers to develop their land. It would simply carve a loophole in LTC Carroll's planning process large enough to drive a John Deere through.Mr. Haines contends that the planning commission is now in a position to deny farmers the right to develop their property.

Haines, Shewell deserve praise Living in Carroll County has been the best decision I have made for my family. Not only is it beautiful here, but the legislators are so dedicated to the community and its citizens. And my compassion for the legislators here in Carroll County is as strong as ever. Serving the construction industry as a bonding and insurance agent and being involved in many trade associations, Sen. Larry Haines was very agreeable in solving contractor issues in the state of Maryland.

RICHARD T. YATES, one of the three Carroll County commissioners, is right to be angry at the county's General Assembly delegation. Apparently, the county's state delegates and senators believe they know better than the commissioners on how to finance the operations of the county government.The focus of the conflict is the commissioners' request for a referendum on whether to create a real estate transfer tax. The proposed 1 percent tax on property transactions is intended to raise money for school construction and farmland preservation, two items typically important to the public.

Why are Dell and Haines trying to dry up the Maryland Wine 0) Festival?Carroll County Commissioner Donald Dell's woefully misguided efforts to undermine the Maryland Wine Festival (Nov. 10) are nothing new.He was preaching the same gospel back in 1992. As coordinator of the wine education seminars for the Maryland Wine Festival, I wrote a letter, printed in the Carroll County Times and copied to Mr. Dell, carefully addressing each of his objections. Now he has been joined in his diatribe by state Sen. Larry Haines, but it's the same old song.

Jeffrey Griffith yesterday at a news conference called by Griffith.Robert Haines said he supports Griffith because he favors spending more for education. He said he also disagrees with his brother's anti-abortion position.

State Sen. Larry Haines has found himself on the hot seat because of an alleged conflict of interest. His case is instructive because it highlights the ethical complexities of part-time public service as well as the need for elected officials to avoid even the appearance of conflict.The controversy involves a letter that the legislator wrote advocating the rezoning of 100 acres of land that his church would like to buy. Mr. Haines finds himself in a peculiar position on this rezoning question because he is simultaneously a state senator, a real estate agent and a member of the Church of the Open Door, which is seeking the land-use change.

By introducing a bill to create a women's commission in Carroll County government against the wishes of his colleagues in Annapolis, Del. Larry LaMotte may be -- as Sen. Larry Haines put it -- violating delegation protocol.Frankly, voters don't give a hoot about delegation protocol. They are much more interested in the fact that, on this issue, Delegate LaMotte is doing a much better job of representing them than is the rest of the county's legislative delegation.In short, Sens. Charles Smelser and Larry Haines and Dels.

Representatives assailed over environment votesIn the May 17 edition of The Sun for Carroll, Carroll countians were once again treated to the arrogance and deceit of Del. Joseph Getty and senators Larry Haines and Timothy Ferguson. Speaking to the Homebuilders Association, these three "public representatives" took their Senate Bill 649 antics to the next level, promising this special interest group that they are fighting each day to protect their God-given property rights.Forgive me, but I am unable to find any version of the Bible that prohibits communities from exercising planning and development responsibilities for the health, safety and welfare of its citizens.

The integrity of the Maryland Senate is very much at stake today as its Executive Nominations Committee deals with two cabinet appointees responsible for lucrative early retirement plans that benefited Gov. Parris Glendening and some aides.Will this hearing lead to a critical examination of this outrageous program and other questionable personnel and labor moves by Mr. Glendening while running Prince George's County? Or will the hearing be a sham, with Democrats giving the two nominees kid-gloves treatment and an overwhelming vote of approval?

State senators are elected to attend to the interests of the general public, but Larry Haines, the Republican incumbent in the Fifth District, has made a practice of lavishing his attention on special interests during his first term.If you are mortician, real estate agent or recreational vehicle dealer, Mr. Haines won't hesitate to put a bill in the hopper for you.But Mr. Haines feels no such obligation for the commissioners of this county, for instance. After the commissioners earlier this year approved the creation of a women's commission at the county level, Mr. Haines, along with others in Carroll's State House delegation, refused to introduce the enabling legislation necessary to create the advisory body.

* FRANCIS SCOTT KEY (1-21): Only three players remain from last season, and two are guards, so coach Jeff Cook plans to use a more run-oriented offense. Junior point G Dave Layman (5-7) and senior shooting G Larry Haines (5-10) will carry much of the scoring load.* LIBERTY (5-17): Ten of Liberty's losses last season were by 10 points or fewer . G Neal Lampron (5-11), one of two returning seniors, will provide the outside scoring punch.* NORTH CARROLL (12-12): North Carroll will stick with its patient half-court, three-guard offense.
