But the proposal drew criticism from the community.Liz Ziemski, an agency spokeswoman, said setting up a simulated roundabout using temporary signs and traffic cones or barrels is a compromise.

Braeburn, McIntosh, Gala, Empire -- the names are lovely, old-fashioned, even romantic. Nittany. Elstar. Fuji. Paulared. Crispin.Apples. There's something about the fall that brings apples to mind, the crisp days and chilly nights, the glorious colors of the fall foliage . . . somehow the crunch of a good apple, the tart-sweet flavor, goes right along.But for people who like to mix a little excitement with their tradition, there are lots of "new" varieties of apples to try. Some are traditional favorites that are coming back into popularity, such as Stayman, Ida Red, York and McIntosh, and some are varieties developed more recently, such as Mountaineer, Jonagold and Gingergold.

Some Lisbon residents are furious over the Howard County Board of Appeals' decision to let a High's convenience store have gas pumps at its planned store at Lisbon Center, warning of traffic congestion and competitive damage to other local businesses.The board approved the pumps 5-0 Tuesday night. Only three of the five members who voted had been present for a June 6 hearing on the issue of having pumps at the store."I make my living off of gas sales," said Larry Flickinger, who owns Lisbon Citgo, a gas station three-quarters of a mile from the High's store.
