Bottom lines: Our views on recent news

Here are our bottom-line views on a few items of note in the Crossroads Business Journal area:

• Good luck to the work group that is exploring how to develop a Western Maryland Autonomous Technology Center. “Autonomous technologies” covers a lot of territory, from unmanned aerial systems and connected autonomous vehicles to industrial robotics, cybersecurity and data analysis.

• Hats off to Wilson College in Chambersburg, Pa. Bucking a national trend of lower college enrollments, Wilson reported that 1,499 students are enrolled for the fall semester, the most in the college’s 149-year history.

• Congrats to Valley Storage, based in Washington County, Md., for its continued expansion, including the recent purchase of five facilities in West Virginia.
