Another Flare Up
It's been some time since I added the first tiny blaze to the masthead map. Crofton has been under siege in one form or another for quite awhile. Originally, it was sand and gravel pits being swapped for public services. Now, the Route 3 corridor is slated to be developed like the Las Vegas strip. And, instead of holding his ground on the Route 3 moratorium, Councilman Ed Reilly has flip flopped and now opposes such a move.
To make matters worse, it appears he has been shopping developers around the County looking for fertile ground. The latest targets? A Wal Mart looking to plop down in the wetlands of the Little Patuxent in Crofton, and a big box monstrosity planned for Wayson's Corner. Ed's campaign donor, Walt Petrie, has his sights set on 27 forested acres in rural Lothian. This Tuesday is your big chance to tell Big Ed, Mr. Berkshire and Mr. Petrie to take their plans somewhere else. Somewhere far away, preferably.
