Thumbs Up, Thumbs Down - June 8

June 08, 2013

Thumbs up to Hagerstown Community College student Jeremiah Sater of Waynesboro, Pa., whose first short story, “Planet 239,” recently was published in the online literary magazine The WiFiles. Sater began writing short stories at the age of 8 and hopes to publish a collection of short stories and a novel within the next 10 years.

Thumbs up to the participants in the Operation God Bless America benefit motorcycle ride, which traveled 45 miles from Greencastle, Pa., to Martinsburg, W.Va., to raise money for the Veterans Affairs Medical Center. Organizers hoped the 23rd annual ride, which included nearly 2,000 motorcycles, would raise close to the 2012 total of $36,000.

Thumbs up to the organizers, volunteers and participants involved in this year’s American Cancer Society Relay for Life in Berkeley County, W.Va. Last weekend’s 18-hour event at Martinsburg High School, which received support from Berkeley County Schools, raised $231,000 for cancer research.
