Zoning panel delays action on bowling lanes
The Mount Airy Planning and Zoning Commission delayed action Monday on site plans for a proposed addition to Mount Airy Bowling Lanes.
Owner Joseph Rineer has proposed adding 12 tenpin lanes on the west side of the building on Center Street. The bowling alley now has 12 duckpin lanes.
Planning commission members asked Mr. Rineer to resubmit his plans after he addresses concerns about storm water management, forest conservation and parking.
In other matters, the commission approved the final 100 lots of the Twin Ridge development, which is located off Route 144.
The commission rescheduled its June meeting. The meeting will be held at 7:30 p.m. June 21.
Airman Theobolt in NATO operation
Navy Airman Recruit Todd M. Theobolt, a 1992 graduate of South Carroll High School, is in the Adriatic Sea with Attack Squadron 36, Naval Air Station Oceana, Virginia Beach, Va. The ship is participating in Operation Deny Flight, a NATO Operation in which allied forces are enforcing a United Nations "no-fly" zone over Bosnia-Herzegovina.
F/A-18 Hornets and F-14 Tomcats from his ship are flying in support of U.N. resolutions to protect citizens in the former Yugoslavia. The operation includes ships and aircraft from the U.S. Sixth Fleet, along with aircraft from France and the VTC Netherlands.
The Theodore Roosevelt battle group is forward-deployed and was ready on-station in the region prior to the start of Operation Deny Flight. It is the first carrier battle group to employ a Special Purpose Marine Air-Ground Task Force, which includes more than 600 Marines aboard the USS Theodore Roosevelt.
Airman Theobolt's squadron flies the A-6E Intruder, an all-weather attack aircraft. He joined the Navy in June, 1992.
