laurae@herald-mail.com A Hagerstown woman who first made a name for herself in local politics has become a lobbyist for an Annapolis-based labor organization. Susan Levitan, formerly known as Susan Tuckwell, started work two months ago for the Maryland State and D.C. AFL-CIO. "It's going to be a new challenge," she said. Last year, Levitan managed Sue Hecht's failed campaign against Sen. Alex X. Mooney, R-Frederick/Washington. She also worked for Democrat Don DeArmon, who ran unsuccessfully against U.S. Rep.

Although federal statistics indicate that the number of on-the-job deaths in the nation fell 17 percent from 2008 to 2009,  area union supporters believe the trend toward safer workplaces could be endangered by the current economic and political climate. The Central Maryland AFL-CIO Council observed Workers Memorial Day Thursday with a ceremony at the Carpenter's Union Hall in Hagerstown. Each year there are workplace disasters that command  headlines. Among the incidents noted at the ceremony were the deaths of 28 coal miners last year in a Massey Energy Co. mine in West Virginia, the deaths of 11 oil workers when a BP rig exploded in the Gulf of Mexico and, locally, the murder of Pennsylvania Wildlife Conservation Officer David L. Grove.

GOLF SNOWSHOE, W.Va. (AP) - David Bradshaw hasn't played much competitive golf this year and toured The Raven course at Snowshoe Mountain resort for the first time only a few weeks ago. Many of the 120 players in this week's West Virginia Open aren't familiar enough with the roller coaster terrain to project confidence, so the winner could end up being someone with a combination of skill, steely nerves and local knowledge. And despite the presence of six past champions in the field, it could end up being as much a surprise as Bradshaw was last year in becoming the first amateur to win the Open since 1993.
