To Maryland Gov. Parris Glendening, for his commitment of $13.5 million to upgrade the Interstate 81 intercharge at Halfway Boulevard. The economic benefits will be tremendous.
To Rosemary Burtner, who taught for 45 years in the Washington County schools, touching the lives of countless local youngsters with her caring nature and her exuberant attitude toward life and all that can be learned.
To James Michael Borum, a 25-year-old Hagerstown man who stole more than $20,000 in jewelry from his own grandmother. To steal from strangers is one thing, but from family?
To Ted Kaczynski, for accepting a plea bargain to spare him the death penalty for his activities as the Unabomber. No such mercy was extended to his victims' families, who at least deserved to see him squirm in court.
