To Hagerstown City Police Officers Marvin Weedon, Barbara Schroyer and other local officers recently honored for their 1996 heroics. Never forget: they're there to keep us safe.
To Chambersburg High School's Cultural Society, a group begun to encourage students to break out of cliques and small groups that prevent them from having new experiences and learning about folks different from themselves.
To Josh Morris and all the other adult mentors helping students at Hagerstown's Fountaindale Elementary School with a variety of subjects. A gift of time now will make a difference forever.
To the Washington County Commissioners, for yet another delay in filling the economic development director's post, vacant since October 1995. The last finalist didn't want to live here, a problem which should have been noted earlier.
