At the last town meeting the commission was offered a way to discuss and maybe settle this dispute without costing the taxpayers any more money, but it was rejected. Why does the commission want to fight this so strongly? If it is a personal vendetta, it has no place in town government. If there is a good reason to put the town's only working boat yard at risk and spend a great deal of the taxpayers' money, what could it be? I am truly concerned about the welfare of St. Michaels and about protecting its value.

Please, Town Commissioners of St. Michaels, show the people of St. Michaels and Talbot County that you have the same concerns. JUDI CORNETTE Easton Sunday drives My wife and I just bought a new car. In all these years of owning cars, this is only the second new car we've purchased.

"A poor man voting for a Republican is like a chicken voting for Frank Perdue." ROBERT W. PERKINS Easton That John Allen This is in response to a recent letter to your newspaper from Mr. Bill Morrison asking if I am an advocate of adequate funding for the public education for Caroline County's children. Yes, I am that John Allen Mr. Morrison referenced in his letter.

Do I ever endorse "full funding" requests as alleged by him? No. Now that Caroline County has saved $14,000 by not approving his endorsed request for an offseason charter government referendum, I am curious if Mr. Morrison would be comfortable supporting our children and youth by re-allocating the savings to the Board of Education to provide for material upgrades which lack due to our inability to adequately fund education in I Caroline?

This country's history is replete with caustic political cartooning, more often than not reflecting the views of many more people than just the cartoonist. Mr. Kollinger's very pertinent and perceptive cartoons make one of the eminent features of your newspaper. They are extraordinary in their grasp of today's political melange.

He "tells it like it is" and I look forward every day to his views. I do not always agree with him; I do appreciate seeing the other side. I clip, copy and send Mr. Kollinger's cartoons to several friends in different areas of the country. They agree with me: he should be syndicated and thus shared with those who believe in the variance of views so neces took over.

Controvillo plans Christmas parade The theme for the annual Cen treville Christmas Parade is "A Nutcracker Christmas." Lately I have been very confused about the role of the Town Commission in St. Michaels. It has always been my understanding that a Town Commission's role is to protect the town and its best interest. How can it be in the town's best interest to alienate agencies such as the Volunteer Fire Department that are there to protect the town and to harass businesses such as Higgln's Boat Yard that are the core of the town's success? Why would the town commission keep the Volunteer Fire Department on strings denying them funds one minute and giving funds the next? Shouldn't this service-oriented organization have the security to know that it can always count on the town to support its efforts? Why would a town commission refuse to try to settle, out of court, a dispute over a dock that is at least 100 years old and in actuality probably no longer The parade Is to be held Fri BEATTY, SATCHELL COMPANY LLC CERTIFIED PUBLIC ACCOUNTANTS IS PLEASED TO ANNOUNCE THAT KENNETH W.
