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.

County considers allowing tip jars at Ag Center The Washington County Commissioners agreed Tuesday to pursue a request by several county nonprofits to operate tip jars during events held at the Washington County Agricultural Education Center. Commissioner Doris Nipps said the county's recreation and parks board had endorsed the request, proposing that such requests be reviewed on a case-by-case basis and be limited to 501c3 organizations within Washington County. Assistant County Attorney John Martirano said the county would have to clarify terms of its lease with the University of Maryland, which owns the property, to see whether state regulations would permit gambling at the site.

chambersburg@herald-mail.com CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - A tie vote Wednesday by the Chambersburg School Board has put on hold plans to build a three-deep elementary school at the present site of U.L. Gordy Elementary School. A motion to approve a contract with Foreman Architects for construction of a new U.L. Gordy failed on a 4-4 vote, delaying any action on the $11 million to $12 million project until a facility study advisory board comes back with a recommendation, probably no earlier than May 31. The formation of that advisory board, a task force of up to 45 members, was approved by the board on a 7-1 vote and will hold its first meeting Feb. 3. Directors Dave Sciamanna, Renee Sharpe, Lori Leedy and Robert Helman voted against the contract.

andrear@herald-mail.com If you're a teenager in Washington County, the Teen Advisory Board wants you - or at least your opinion. The Teen Advisory Board at Washington County Free Library in Hagerstown works to get young adults more interested in the library through events, contests, music and books that appeal to teenagers, said advisory board member Francis Byrne, 17, a senior at Clear Spring High School. Now Francis and his friends, with support from library honchos, are trying to drum up interest in their biggest idea yet for attracting teens to the public library: a space of their own. Dubbed the "Teen Loft," the mezzanine area overlooking the stacks on the library's Antietam Street side will be a "good place for teenagers to hang out away from home, where you don't have to do chores," said Julia Copley, 17, a home-school graduate and part-time student at Hagerstown Community College.
