A bill aimed at settling a Western Maryland school-attendance dispute has died with an odd legacy. Even with 22 of the 23 members of the House Ways and Means Committee co-sponsoring the bill, it failed to advance from the committee, a preliminary step toward success. The bill was one of two Del. LeRoy E. Myers Jr. pursued this year to let public school students from the Little Orleans area of Allegany County continue going to school in Hancock in Washington County. But, with only a few days left in the Maryland General Assembly's 2012 session before in adjourns Monday, that bill and a later one like it are likely to wither because of inaction.

A fresh chapter in a contentious dispute over whether Allegany County students can attend school in Hancock has emerged in Annapolis: a new bill. Del. LeRoy E. Myers Jr., R-Washington/Allegany, has filed another bill helping students in Allegany County's Little Orleans area to continue to attend Hancock schools, which are across the county line but closer. Del. Kevin Kelly, D-Allegany, is strongly opposed on the grounds that it's another attempt to interfere with a local school decision.

Devin Miller has a short memory. That's probably what many will gladly remember about him once he finally leaves Hagerstown Community College. Miller, using every ounce of his shooter's mentality, got past his offensive struggles just at the right time on Sunday. The sophomore scored eight straight points in a three-minute stretch late in the second half to bring HCC from behind and set up a final defensive stand to earn a 79-74 victory over Allegany College to win a second straight NJCAA Region XX Division I Tournament title.

A parochial dispute over whether Allegany County students may attend school in Hancock played out in a state legislative committee on Thursday. It was the latest in a divisive battle in Allegany County, creating an unusual situation in which one member of a delegation testified against another member's bill. Del. LeRoy E. Myers Jr., R-Washington/Allegany, is sponsoring a bill to let students go to a public secondary school in an adjacent county if they'd have to “travel greater than 30 miles” to get to the closest one in their county.

Allegany College put the Hagerstown Community College men's basketball team to the test on Monday. The Hawks failed. In fact, they didn't even looked like they studied. The Trojans took the game to HCC by taking it away from the Hawks from the start, controlling the tempo and flow to methodically scratch out a 86-78 Maryland JuCo Conference victory at the HCC athletic complex. Allegany's exam came in three parts and HCC acted like it needed CliffsNotes to have a clue. “We didn't play consistent defense, we didn't rebound well and we didn't make our foul shots,” said HCC coach Barry Brown.
