    Hoping for people to come downtown it would make sense for The Cumberland Times News to open it’s parking lot. Parking can be difficult to find and, if you drive by, you’ll notice that the lot is always almost completely empty.

    I totally agree with Mac about opening Times News lot. Parking in the Museum lot is also free.

    I guess this explains why my garbage was not picked up Friday. I called their office and got a recording that they were closed DUE TO LABOR DAY. Maybe they should focus on hauling garbage a while longer before they go sponsoring festivals. Just a thought. . .

    Why on earth would they schedule this the same weekend as autumn glory?

      > I guess they are hoping someone gets lost on the way to Garret county and decides to stay here. We’re not really anyone’s destination, we’re always going to be plan B.
