I gave this news some deeper thought after I stopped laughing: Thanks to men, Hagerstown has the dubious honor of ranking No. 2 on the "Eight Cities with the Ugliest Guys" list. The Hagerstown Ugly Man story has been making its rounds as the butt of jokes on Facebook status updates and as a featured story on regional news segments ever since the story was published on TotalBeauty.com Sept. 25. Whether calling Hagerstown men ugly are fighting words depends on a few things - like how you interpret data or if you're a guy or a girl.

"Nobody knew what to do," former President Jimmy Carter said Tuesday during a symposium at the National Conservation Training Center commemorating the refuge's 50th anniversary.

Eating ice cream to beat the summer heat is one of America's favorite pastimes.   Homemade ice cream can be a special treat, but it can also become a threat because of salmonellosis. While commercially manufactured ice cream is typically made with pasteurized eggs or egg products, recipes for homemade ice cream often use raw eggs in the base mixture. If your favorite ice cream recipe uses uncooked eggs, it is time to replace or revise it. Those raw eggs may contain salmonella bacteria that can cause foodborne illness.

"Those who do not remember the past are condemned to repeat it. " - George Santayana History never actually repeats itself, as each incident is unique, but events like the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks set the table for decisions and actions that can be examined a decade later to learn what did and did not work. "We learned that our traditional defense of 3,000-plus miles of ocean is no longer a barrier," Thomas G. Clemens, a professor of history at Hagerstown Community College, wrote in an email.

Ted Anderson spent the night of Oct. 15, 1986, crammed into a room with seven other cops in an out-of-the-way Virginia hotel. One officer spent the night in a bathtub and several lay on the floor. Anderson didn't sleep at all. Early the next morning, a Thursday, a caravan of about 100 police vehicles - including Anderson's - made its way up Interstate 81 into Martinsburg, where the largest drug bust in the town's history took place as most of the dealers were still sleeping.
