There was a story in The Frederick News-Post emphasizing the president of the Board of County Commissioners is all alone in selling the public facilities, Citizens Care and Rehabilitation Center and Montevue Assisted Living.
In the land of the free and home of the brave what is more fun than keeping abreast of the nefarious activities under way in the “republic” of Frederick, both city and county.
It seems like all anyone wants to talk about these days around Frederick County is politics. As we are in an election year, sometimes I am guilty of that as well, but not today.
