GLEN CAMPBELL â€” While this town of just over 300 people may not be listed among those sites for famous artists, Glen Campbell is the home of one local artist and retired teacher serving as president of a nationwide organization dedicated to advancing the cause of fine arts in America.
â€śI was reluctant to take the position,â€ť said Larry Mallory, of Glen Campbell, who added that his biggest issue has always been the distance from Glen Campbell to New York City. But he realized being president of a prestigious art association is not something that happens every day, so he accepted.
BIG RUN â€” Big Run Borough Council heard a possible solution to its police problems at Mondayâ€™s meeting, but actual funding for such a program is still the main obstacle.
Brian Lyons, a former Sykesville and Summerville police officer who also served as a police chief of a regional police department, said heâ€™s been following councilâ€™s discussions about hiring a police officer for the borough.
