WMC golf course aids Lung Association

M. Joseph Munzer, golf shop manager of Western Maryland College Golf Course, has been recognized for helping the American Lung Association of Maryland raise $84,00 to fight lung disease.

The Western Maryland College Golf Course in Westminster was a sponsor of the Golf Privilege Card, which entitles card holders to free rounds of golf at participating courses throughout the state.

The association said sales of the 1993 card were triple those of last year, raising money for lung disease research, advocacy to combat environmental hazards to breathing, and teaching programs so that individuals can recognize, prevent and manage lung disease.

Sales of the 1994 Golf Privilege Card begin in November.

Information: 1-(800) 492-7527. Marylanders spent about $443.5 million on taxable entertainment during fiscal year 1993, which ended June 30.

According to state Comptroller Louis L. Goldstein, this figure is about the same amount as during the last fiscal year.

Last month, the comptroller's office sent checks totaling $6,883,560 to Maryland's counties, cities and towns as their share of the admissions and amusement tax revenues collected for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 1993.

Distribution was 13.3 percent less than the $7,936,030 the subdivisions received for the last quarter of fiscal year 1992.

Carroll County received $485,463 this year, up from the $424,842 received last year.

While spending for amusement rides, golf and athletic events increased, Marylanders spent less on motion pictures, shows and exhibits, live theater and concerts, and coin-operated devices.

Eldersburg Mobil dealer helps MDA

The Muscular Dystrophy Association's Baltimore and Washington chapters will get a helping hand Sept. 2-6 as the result of a "community appreciation" promotion.

More than 125 Mobil service stations in the Baltimore-Washington area will participate, including the Mobil dealer at 1400 Liberty Road in Eldersburg.

Participating Mobil dealers will donate 1 cent per gallon to MDA for all gasoline sold during the five-day period.

Funds raised will support MDA clinics at Johns Hopkins Hospital and Maryland General Hospital in Baltimore and Camp Maria in Leonardtown.
