QUEEN­STOWN — The Bene­dic­tine Foun­da­tion hosted its an­nual Bene­dic­tine Char­ity Golf Clas­sic on Fri­day, Oct. 13, at Queen­stown Har­bor, draw­ing nearly 100 golfers and rais­ing more than $45,000.

Funds raised di­rectly sup­port the Ridgely based non­profit’s mission to help chil­dren and adults with de­vel­op­men­tal dis­abil­i­ties achieve their great­est po­ten­tial.

“The suc­cess of this event is all thanks to the gen­er­ous sup­port of our spon­sors and play­ers,” said Barry Smale, Bene­dic­tine Foun­da­tion di­rec­tor. “Spe­cial events like this help sup­port the pur­chase of adap­tive school tech­nolo­gies and bet­ter fund our adult ser­vices com­mu­nity

“There are more fac­tors you need to take into con­sid­er­a­tion,” Marra said.

Com­mis­sion Vice Pres­i­dent Larry Porter said the county needed to look fur­ther into the state ap­proval process be­fore fi­nal­iz­ing and en­act­ing the or­di­nance.

“We need to clar­ify what the county can man­date in terms of num­ber of acres for one project,” Porter said.

“Two months (of an ex­tended mora­to­rium) should be enough, with ev­ery­thing brought to light, to do more re­search,” said Pres­i­dent Dan Franklin.
