To the AC&T Company, for its donation of $25,000 to Washington County's Rural Heritage Museum, a gift that may have prompted a $15,000 pledge from Purina Mills, Inc. Thanks.
To Carl Miller Sr., of Hagerstown, for tackling a purse- snatching suspect outside the County Market and holding the man until city police arrived. We don't recommend that everybody do this, but it was a brave thing to do.
To Maryland's Department of Transportation, for saying it doesn't have the cash now to improve the Halfway Boulevard/Interstate 81 interchange. If it were in Baltimore, cash would be found.
To Washington County officials, for not helping Maugansville firefighters get reimbursed for thousands they spent fighting a large tire fire. If we want them to respond, we've got to respond when they need help.
