Salt Barn Meeting 7:30 Thur.

From The
        Jack Scible parked his red farm Ford truck at the entrance of the Y Worry Farm on Tuesday September 1, 2015, and surveyed his land from the family farm he started in 1954. "I feel strong," he said to the present writer. With the sign and a quote from Matthew over his head, Scible showed faith in God, without worry or fear, as the looming decision and the possible threat of the building of salt domes on the spot of his beloved Y Worry Farm Pumpkin Patch comes near. It was the perfect picture of one man of faith against the awesome power of the state.
        Over three thousand citizens have voiced their concerns to their political leaders to question the logic of building structures to hold salt for possible storms on a site where hard work, faith, and persistence has created a beautiful field of dreams for people who believe that pumpkin pie is food for the soul. These people believe that a field of pumpkins is far more beautiful than rows of salt. Jack Scible folded his hands, as if in prayer, and thanked the present writer for his concern. Although journalists must always remain neutral in every issue, a plate of pumpkin pie will always win over a plate of salt.
        The Y Worry Farm Pumpkin Patch is an annual October event. It has survived wars in Korea, Vietnam, the Persian Gulf, Iraq, and Afghanistan. It has survived hurricanes, tornadoes, and terrorist attacks in nearby Washington. The farm that has produced huge pumpkins every year and has become a place where people from all over the metro area have come to bring their children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren. It is hard to imagine October and the harvest season without the Y Worry Farm Pumpkin Patch bringing in the season. has covered events at the Y Worry Farm for half a decade. The public meeting on Thursday September 3, 2015, will give concerned citizens the full story regarding the government actions and how the decisions will affect the community. Jack Scible and his children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren will be there to share the trouble that is disturbing a small business farm family that started in 1954 and has offered great customer service to the metro area for half a century.
        The meeting will take place at the Davidsonville Family Recreation Center located on 3789 Queen Anne Bridge Road in Davidsonville, Maryland, 21035. The meeting will start at 7:30 pm. To learn more about the issue please go to
