To all the road crews and fire/rescue personnel who labored to keep Tri-state residents safe after the season's first snowfall. Thanks for helping us get through this inconvenient stuff.
To North Hagerstown High teacher Diane Telemko, for helping students earn their community service requirements by visiting residents at the Coffman nursing home. The visits opened their eyes, which is just what the law intended.
To District Judge Fred Bower, for giving a Sharpsburg man convicted in an animal cruelty case probation before judgment. The judge, we're sure, hasn't gone without adequate food lately.
To the Washington County Lions and Lioness Clubs, for putting together a relief effort for Dawn Shank, who lost many of her possessions after an auto service garage below her apartment exploded.
