Almost nine years ago, at the suggestion of Publisher John League, I put out the call for readers to serve on a citizens advisory board for The Herald-Mail's editorial page. Since 1997, the group has met monthly to talk over issues for the editorial page and suggest topics for my personal columns, which appear on Thursdays and Sundays. The group has hashed over everything from the allowable length of letters to the editor to which syndicated columnists we should run, and covered a lot of ground in between.

Is Washington County on the verge of landing a couple of manufacturing companies with wages in the $15-an-hour range? The County Commissioners wouldn't say on Tuesday, but two sources in a position to know say it's a definite possibility. Ordinarily I don't get many tips on new companies, but after the recent County Commissioners candidates' forum put together by the Hagerstown/Washington Chamber of Commerce, people began telling me that I ought to look again at the list of questions that were asked, specifically Question No. 3.

shappell@herald-mail.com Just more than a year ago, former Washington County Commissioner Ron Bowers was sentenced to 30 months probation after pleading guilty to a charge of driving under the influence of alcohol. Now, Bowers is leading a group trying to reduce the amount of people who repeat that offense. He credits hearing the story of a victim injured in an alcohol-related crash as one of the most significant moments in his recovery. Bowers, an admitted alcoholic, was appointed chairman of the advisory board to the Washington County Victim Impact Panel, which was formed this spring.

Plummer said she is "proud to serve the needs of our citizens and eager to continue addressing the positive challenges facing our county.

Her goals have included increasing the efficiency of county government, improving human services and strengthening the support for the criminal justice system.

Every month a group of eight dedicated local people, who get paid nothing for their trouble, get together to act as a citizens advisory panel for The Herald-Mail's editorial page. In two short hours, they teach me, over and over again, that listening is the best way to learn. The group's special focus has been education and the idea that local people - parents and students - don't understand how important it is to this region's economic well-being. And so it was natural for me to ask their advice on how to cover the strategic plan for the school system recently produced by a group of more than 100 local educators and businesspeople.
