I disagree with Rep. John Delaney that Cove Point should be approved as a liquid natural gas export facility ( "Natural gas is the right choice for the U.S.," April 2). The harm that will come from such approval is immeasurable and the brunt will be borne by the people of Maryland, not to mention those to the north and west who are currently being "fracked. " I live in Myersville, a small community in Frederick County. Dominion Resources came to Myersville with a plan to build an oversized natural gas compressor station at the gateway to our town.

Another bit of the increasingly oddball John Waters hitchhiking mystery has been revealed. We knew the filmmaker started his cross-country adventure in Baltimore. And we knew a touring indie band had picked him up in Ohio. We also knew a married couple helped ferry him from Kansas to Denver. But we had no idea -- until now -- how Waters made it from here to the Buckeye State ... and beyond. The Frederick News-Post helped clear that up today with a crazy story that details how a Myersville, Maryland councilman named Brett Bidle spent four delicious hours in the car with Waters in Maryland, dropped him in Ohio, and then, defying belief, hooked up with the director again further west.

For weeks, people in Myersville had hoped that the remote location of their small town in western Frederick County would protect them from attacks by a sniper striking across the Washington suburbs and in Virginia. But then, early yesterday morning, the sniper crisis arrived in their back yard - at a rest stop along Interstate 70 just a mile or so from the community of 1,500. With it came roadblocks, helicopters, a sea of flashing lights, and a seemingly endless flood of police and journalists.

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.

So it turns out Myersville's resident overgrown punks, Ann and Chris Boyes, aren't the worst-dressed couple in America after all. That title was awarded Friday night to leather-and-camouflage-clad Kal and Tammie Hudson of Albemarle, N.C., on TLC's What Not to Wear: Worst-Dressed Couple in America contest. The Hudsons walked away from that dubious honor with a fresh, sophisticated look and $10,000 worth of new, more-fashionable clothes. But even though it was pretty close - the three pairs of finalists were all really, really, really bad dressers - it was a competition the Boyeses thought they should have won. "In terms of being the worst-dressed, there's no question," says Ann, 38. "I think we have that down."
