I moved back to Chesapeake City three years ago after having previously resided here for 20 years. In the past, I owned the Canal Creamery and was a member of the Scenic Byways Corridor Management Plan — I understand Cecil County did not pass the plan. I also had the opportunity to be president of the Merchants Association and of the Tourism Board.

GRAND RAPIDS, Michigan — It is difficult to discourage and impossible to manage Justin Amash because he, unusual among politicians, does not want much and wants nothing inordinately. He would like to win a sixth term as congressman from this culturally distinctive slice of the Midwest. He does not, however, want it enough to remain in today's Republican Party, which he has left because that neighborhood has become blighted.
