Title: Column - "Program [Appleseed] plants seeds of responsibility"
Post by: Viator on April 07, 2014, 12:30:53 PM
Hi folks,

Among other things, I write a regular (currently alternate Mondays) column for the Carroll County Times, and I'm proud that this column was published in today's edition:

http://www.carrollcountytimes.com/columnists/opinion/tom_harbold/tom-harbold-program-plants-seed-of-responsibility/article_d259f147-6e9c-5c02-a65a-ac1f5a2b60e5.html (http://www.carrollcountytimes.com/columnists/opinion/tom_harbold/tom-harbold-program-plants-seed-of-responsibility/article_d259f147-6e9c-5c02-a65a-ac1f5a2b60e5.html)

I'm hoping this might plant the seed of a thought in someone's mind that, hey, if Colorado can have Appleseed in the schools, why can't Carroll County? Or elsewhere in Maryland, for that matter...?

Yours in service,

Tom

WOW! Thanks for the promo bump! Just by chance I'm close to getting AS going at a range in that neck of the woods! Gotta share on the FB page too...  BeSwift

Nice, Tom!  I posted the link on the Craver Middle School AAR.

My pleasure! Very glad to be of service to the cause. Which range, if you don't mind me asking? Now I just gotta get back there... *wry grin*

And thanks, Kim!  :-)  Seeing your userid and contrasting it to the (sadly) popular caricature of "gun culture" causes me to chuckle.

Let's see, north of Frederick-

I'm guessing it's probably not the Camp David trap range....

...but perhaps we should make ready that new SportingClaysSeed curriculum anyway.

Just in case.

Still nothing I can announce yet for Frederick..however.. I've now got things at least in the talking stage,  at just about every range between Hagerstown & Frederick.  BTW.. we HAVE gotten final approval for a nearby range in WV (Leetown IWLA), but don't have a specific date solidified yet..
