Hi my name is Beth and I like my father have lived here all of my life. I read the article concerning Phoenix, MD and I noticed something that I believe is incorrect. To my knowledge there is no airport, not a public one anyway. There is an old Nike site in Phoenix that left many surrounding properties well water undrinkable. Water from wells on Paper Mill Rd was piped to those houses including those on Sunnybrook Rd sometime in the 1990s. The Greater Jacksonville Association silenced the fire stations emergency siren some time in the late 1980s or early 1990s, this was a result of new resident's complaints. The complaints were made after they knowingly purchased a home directly behind a working fire station and before reliable communication i.e. cell phones, etc. Other than that it looks good. The actual original town of Phoenix is located on the NCR Trail where it crosses Phoenix Road almost across from the Hunt Valley Golf Course.Betha7123 (talk) 07:10, 12 February 2017 (UTC)Beth ABetha7123 (talk) 07:10, 12 February 2017 (UTC)

Draft article for David Trone[edit]


On behalf of David Trone and Hickman Analytics, I have submitted a draft article about this American businessman as part of my work at Beutler Ink. Given my conflict of interest, I will not publish the article to the main space and ask independent editors to review this draft for accuracy, neutrality, and verifiability. Is there a WikiProject Maryland participant who will help move the draft into the main space? Thanks! Inkian Jason (talk) 14:56, 17 March 2017 (UTC)

This draft has been moved into the main space, so I am marking this section as resolved. Thanks! Inkian Jason (talk) 16:45, 7 April 2017 (UTC)

Edit request to update article[edit]


Hello, again! I have submitted an edit request to update the Wikipedia article for David Trone, who resides in Maryland. I've proposed a few updates to the article's "Personal life" section, and suggested a few links for "Further reading" and/or "External links" sections. The proposed additions (which I've outlined here) are not very controversial, in my opinion, but I can't edit the article directly because of my COI and I'm looking for a neutral volunteer who can review the proposed text/links and update the article accordingly. Is a WikiProject Maryland participant willing to help? Inkian Jason (talk) 20:16, 11 July 2017 (UTC)

Hello! An editor has assisted with the first 2 requests outlined here, but there's one part left (#3) and the reviewing person would like more input. Is someone able to take a look at the proposed text, and update the article appropriately? Inkian Jason (talk) 16:42, 27 July 2017 (UTC)
The edit request has been answered, so I am marking this section as resolved. Thanks! Inkian Jason (talk) 17:11, 1 August 2017 (UTC)

Help with article for former Maryland lawmaker[edit]

Hi there, I'm here to see if there are any editors who could help expanding and updating the article for Stewart W. Bainum Jr. As many interested in Maryland might know, Mr. Bainum is a former state lawmaker in the Maryland House of Delegates and Maryland Senate, and has held leadership positions with Choice Hotels and HCR Manor Care, among other businesses. For more details and my COI disclosure, see this edit request. Overall, my draft seeks to improve the structure of the Stewart W. Bainum Jr. article, fix inaccuracies throughout, and highlight the details of Mr. Bainum's business and political careers. In particular, from news clippings provided by Mr. Bainum and from research on Lexis Nexis and HighBeam, I've been able to find a lot of older sources that provide information about his political career and development of the company that became Choice Hotels.

The new draft is saved in my user space here: User:16912_Rhiannon/Stewart_W._Bainum_Jr

You can see the changes vs. the current article's wording in a diff here.

Let me know if you have any feedback or questions about the new draft and specific changes made. Thanks in advance, 16912 Rhiannon (Talk · COI) 17:59, 12 May 2017 (UTC)

 Done This request has been reviewed. Thanks! 16912 Rhiannon (Talk · COI) 21:36, 13 June 2017 (UTC)
