Dels. Carmen Amedori and Nancy R. Stocksdale have filed for re-election, but redistricting has made the incumbents, who have been working together the past four years, opponents. Redistricting has trimmed one at-large seat from Carroll and forced its three incumbent delegates - including Joseph M. Getty, who is considered a candidate but has yet to file - to compete for the two available seats. Typically, incumbents win re-election fairly easily, no matter how crowded the field. Amedori and Stocksdale are Westminster residents, and Getty lives in Manchester and has a law office in Hampstead.

Carmen Amedori knows that her mouth makes her a target. Quick with a barb, the Republican candidate for state delegate has during the past four years called her Democratic foes traitors, crooks, liars and conspirators. She has become the brashest symbol of Carroll County's gun-loving, abortion-hating, unapologetic conservatism. And she loves it. "Yeah, I'm a lightning rod and I'm outspoken," she said. "I'm sure the Democrats would like to get rid of somebody like me, who doesn't go to Annapolis for 90 days to socialize but to speak up for the principles of my constituents."

The run-oriented team found it in a most surprising place. Senior quarterback Travis Love, who had thrown for just 600 yards all season, completed 16 of 21 passes for a career-high 335 yards and three touchdowns, helping the host Falcons hang onto their slim post-season hopes with a 44-12 drubbing of the Eagles.

The voters saw that the candidates telling us they were the "real" Republicans seemed mostly real interested in business as usual for big developers.
