Swartz shows spooky side
Commissioner Paul L. Swartz sparked laughter Tuesday when he entered the Washington County Commissioners' meeting room wearing a mask over his face and a wig of curly green hair.
As people laughed, he asked, "What's so funny?"
He then removed the Halloween mask and attached wig and got down to business.
After school grants awarded
The Washington County Commissioners approved After School Opportunity Grant awards Tuesday.
The grant funds come from the State Department of Human Resources and the Governor's Office for Children, Youth and Families. No county funds are involved, said Melissa Boyer, project coordinator of the Washington County Community Partnership.
The grants are restricted to middle school-aged youths, she said.
The grants suggested by the Washington County Community Partnership, and awarded by the County are:
- Boys and Girls Club/Girls Inc., $24,340 as part of a proposal to deter drug and alcohol use for a minimum of 50 middle school students.
