FROSTBURG – As an economic maelstrom of historic proportion broke over Wall Street and markets worldwide, the Frostburg Mayor and City Council stuck their big toe in the roiling waters, to test a possible refinancing of long-term debt that could save the city up to $300,000 over the next two decades.

Meeting Thursday night at City Hall in a public hearing, the mayor and city council voted unanimously to proceed with consideration of bid proposals for refinancing debt from Piney Dam and the city’s joining the state pension system.

The city had solicited bids for the refinancing in August, a month before the storm clouds rose in Manhattan, but it’s a ...

The Raging Controversy of the Allegany County Road Patrol,

Part 2.

 

A truism says that there are always two sides to any story, and Dear Readers, this most assuredly is the case when it comes to the heated disagreement between the Allegany County Commissioners and the Sheriff of Allegany County.

A sign of the season in the Mountain City, as sure as Big Savage aglow orange, red and yellow, is The Frostburg Freeze closing down for winter.  Sunday the 5th marks the end of either their 44th or 54th season, depending on which sign you read. Of the former, my cousin Rick Hess of Mount Pleasant Street was born that year, if the latter, my folks were married at St. Mike’s that November. Whatever the year, it’s a grand tradition in Frostburg; more so in spring rebirth, of course, but as day wouldn’t be the same without night, rise without fall, it is our lot to endure life without The ...

FROSTBURG – The Frostburg City Police Department is slated to add another officer to its ranks next month, thanks to a partnership with the Allegany County School System. If the August law enforcement activity report is any indication, the extra officer can’t come too soon.
