After struggling financially for several years and dealing with growing state and federal regulations, the Board of Directors for the Lions Center for Rehabilitation and Extended Care has announced that it will sell its assets to the developers of the planned Cumberland Chase senior living facility near Rawlings. The announcement was made during Thursday’s meeting of the Allegany County Commissioners by Board members Ed Crossland and John Emerick. A press release provided details of the agreement with Cumberland Chase and outlined the reasons for the move.  It was pointed out that the aging Lions Nursing Home facility on Haystack Mountain is no longer adequate to provide all of the necessary services- and that building a new structure would not be possible financially. Crossland said that after exploring a number of options it was determined by the board that the best course of action would be to work with the Cumberland Chase project- with the goal being to establish a state of the art long-term care and assisted living complex…

      > That Zoning board has a convicted Mail fraud person name Ed Crossland. His wife is a goofy lunatic. Besides this deal will benefit Ed Crossland and his wife because the value of their farm will rise higher. I once visited the Corner Tavern when it was owned by his lunatic wife and found her deranged all because someone wanted a non alcoholic drink. Besides how did a convicted felon disbarred lawyer get to decide your zoning issues. Just google Ed Crossland Mail fraud.

    Isn’t the land under the Lions Center owned by the school system? It will be wonderful for the Lions Center to have a new up to date and code for the residents.
