John G. Schisler, the longtime spokesman and director of public relations for the old Chesapeake & Potomac Telephone Co., died Sept. 12 at the Blakehurst retirement community in Towson of chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder. He was 85. "Through and through, it was C&P and what was best for the community," said Betsy Nelson, who retired in 2012 as president of the Association of Baltimore Area Grantmakers. "He was diligent and a pragmatist, but had a heart of gold. " The son of J. Harry Schisler, executive vice president of the Fidelity & Deposit Co. of Maryland, and Mildred Hawkins Schisler, a homemaker, John Gardner Schisler was born in Baltimore and raised in Cedarcroft.

The chairman of the Maryland Public Service Commission, Kenneth D. Schisler, should resign. Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr., who appointed Mr. Schisler in 2003, should demand his departure. Even Baltimore Gas and Electric Co. and its parent company, Constellation Energy, should be eager for Mr. Schisler to leave his post. The revelations last weekend of improper e-mail exchanges between the state's top utility regulator and an industry lobbyist are just that damning. The breezy conversations strongly indicate that the pro-business slant that Mr. Ehrlich sought at the PSC is a cozy insider's game.

The Maryland Republican Party acknowledged yesterday that it financially supported Public Service Commission Chairman Kenneth D. Schisler's lawsuit to keep his job, despite stringent denials the day before. Party spokeswoman Audra Miller said yesterday that she had been incorrect to assert that a $20,000 payment from the GOP's federal campaign account to the law firm representing Schisler was not for the former Republican delegate's lawsuit. She declined to elaborate further on the payment.

Maryland's House Republicans re-elected Del. Alfred W. Redmer Jr. as minority leader yesterday and selected Del. Kenneth D. Schisler as their new minority whip. Redmer, who represents the Parkville area of Baltimore County, was first elected minority leader last year. Democrats will have a 55-seat majority in the House of Delegates when it convenes in January, but the GOP caucus will include eight more members than it did last session and will be working closely with Republican Gov.-elect Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. "We are going to be able to demonstrate to Maryland citizens that we as a party collectively have the ability to govern and lead," said Redmer, a delegate since 1991.

Arnold ruled.

It's August -- that all-purpose excuse for not paying attention to business -- so you might have missed the latest episode in that long-running drama, Schisler Agonistes. Kenneth D. Schisler has been battling to save his job as the chairman of the Maryland Public Service Commission since he and the other members were fired by the General Assembly in the flurry of activity that followed the announcement this spring that BGE electric rates were going up 72 percent. As head of what is supposed to be an impartial regulatory board, Schisler has been controversial for both his ties to the industries he regulates and to the Republicans who have sponsored him. This week, as The Sun's Andrew A. Green reported, the state Republican Party gave $20,000 to the law firm that filed Schisler's suit to overturn his firing by the Assembly.

Maryland Public Service Commission Chairman Kenneth D. Schisler discussed with a power company official how to get Republicans into the leadership of a national utility regulators association and how to draft legislation that would boost energy competition in Maryland, a new batch of recently released e-mail shows. The November 2004 discussion took place when the official, Loyd "Aldie" Warnock, was working for Mirant Corp., an Atlanta-based company that owns three Maryland power plants rated by an environmental watchdog group as among the dirtiest in the nation.

Martin O'Malley, had sought to be reimbursed for the...

A Carroll County farmer was convicted of animal cruelty and selling contaminated meat yesterday after he waived his right to a jury trial in Circuit Court - the most recent in a series of dealings with authorities that date to the early 1990s. Also, in a separate case involving environmental crimes that the state was set to prosecute next week, Carroll County Circuit Judge Thomas F. Stansfield convicted Carroll L. Schisler Sr., 61, of discharging animal carcasses and waste into a stream and littering the farm with more than 500 pounds of trash, including numerous junked cars.

The state will spend $150,000 to settle lawsuits by two former employees who claimed they were fired illegally by former Public Service Commission Chairman Kenneth D. Schisler, officials said yesterday. Schisler fired Randy M. Allen and Blaine L. Keener, who served as the PSC's chief auditor and engineer, in April 2004. He did so without consulting other members of the commission in a housecleaning that claimed the jobs of three other employees, a move critics said was designed to make the regulatory body more friendly to the utilities.

At the request of the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the Carroll County Humane Society will trap wild animals living in the vicinity of a quarantined Marston farm beginning Monday in order to test them for a potentially deadly parasite, officials said yesterday. Raccoons, possums, foxes and skunks, all of which may feed on carcasses, will be captured in box traps, euthanized and tested for "trichinella spiralis" to determine if pigs escaping from the farm infected surrounding wildlife.

A Carroll County man whose Marston farm was quarantined last April when a pig tested positive for trichinosis successfully appealed two Circuit Court cases yesterday involving three llamas and a bull found unattended near his property on separate occasions. Carroll L. Schisler Sr. had been found guilty last fall of failing to prevent a bull from leaving his property without attending to it last April, and of failing to restrain the llamas in May. Schisler appealed the guilty findings because "he had done nothing wrong," said his lawyer Roland Walker.

A state senator who pushed last year for the Maryland Public Service Commission to reconsider electric deregulation and to pursue millions of dollars customers paid to BGE's parent company wants the commission to start those inquiries all over again - once Gov. Martin O'Malley appoints a new chairman for the panel. Sen. E.J. Pipkin, an Eastern Shore Republican, was one of the most outspoken critics of electric deregulation last year as lawmakers worked to mitigate BGE's anticipated 72 percent rate increase, and he was one of the first to call for PSC Chairman Kenneth D. Schisler to resign over his handling of the matter.

Gov. Martin O'Malley could name a replacement for Public Service Commission Chairman Kenneth D. Schisler by the end of the week as part of his effort to install more consumer-friendly regulators, but lawmakers warned yesterday that he should be careful not to make the commission anti-business in the process. Schisler's abrupt resignation Monday came as a surprise to many in the legislature and the administration, but O'Malley had already been vetting candidates for another empty seat on the commission, which regulates electric utilities, phone companies, taxicabs and other public services.

The resignation of the chairman of Maryland's Public Service Commission, Kenneth D. Schisler, is a welcome, if overdue, event. Mr. Schisler's credibility had bottomed out quite some time ago, and his lingering presence on the board threatened some ugly legal machinations. And while Mr. Schisler's actions (or inactions) are hardly the primary reason Baltimore Gas and Electric customers are likely to face much higher electricity bills this summer, he clearly wasn't going to be part of any long-term solution.
