[at-l] Losing land to AT

There was an article in today's Baltimore Sun about the AT in Maryland.
It was mostly about how landowners are losing land to the AT because the
government will take their land away under eminent domain laws. In one
case, this man in Hagerstown has land with a cabin on it that comes
within 120 feet of the trail. The government is supposed to buy land
within 500 feet. They took all 17 acres of his land. :P
The guy said he didn't mind the hikers - he even got some of them to
sign a petition, but I guess he's pretty peved at the gov't.
