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.

TANEYTOWN - For the last 45 years, members of the Taneytown Rod and Gun Club have been able to improve their catch or perfect their shooting in the middle of a lush, 20-acre refuge just outside the city.The three-acre stocked pond, the endless view of trees, wildlife and surrounding farmland and the distance from homes, schools or people made their club grounds a perfect place for target shooting or trout fishing.But that is about to change, as the club members, fearing an inevitable push of development could ruin their Stumptown Road property, decided last week to sell the parcel to the city for $365,000.

Taneytown Rod and Gun Club's five-year quest to build shooting ranges on a Frederick County farm may hinge on the capacity of its clubhouse.Capacity is a key factor because Frederick County zoning law requires meeting places that can accommodate 100 or more people to have paved road access. The club is located on an unpaved section of Shoemaker Road.The Frederick County Board of Zoning Appeals postponed a hearing Tuesday on the club's proposal to await capacity information from the state fire marshal's office.

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.
