Only three Washington County residents testified at a public hearing Monday night on a request by Columbia Gas of Maryland to raise residential and commercial customers' total natural gas bills by more than 16 percent. The utility company's proposed rate hikes are intended to boost revenues by $5.3 million, so the company can recover the cost of upgrading underground gas distribution facilities. Hagerstown resident Edward Kendall, who estimated he had been a Columbia Gas customer for more than 40 years, said at the hearing held at Hagerstown Community College that he was opposed to the rate hike.

This past weekend saw an upset at the box office as "The Call" became the weekend's most successful new release, beating out the star-studded but formulaic magic comedy "The Incredible Burt Wonderstone. "  Maybe it was just my relief at not having to review that bomb, or maybe it was the excitement of rushing out to a movie after midnight Saturday, but I found "The Call" to be surprisingly endearing.  The same thing happened with "Chronicle" last year, and while "The Call" isn't worthy of the near-rave review I gave "Chronicle," I was at least glad to have gone out of my way to see it. Halle Berry stars as Jordan, a 911 operator who is traumatized in film's opening moments when she mishandles a call about a home invasion that leads to a girl's death.

Recently, an acquaintance of mine used a gun to commit suicide. This person had been depressed for years and had several recent traumatic events occur that I believe added to the depression. Though suicided by guns figures prominently in this column, I am not writing about weapons. This column is about mental health.  In shooting incidents in Aurora, Colo., and Newtown, Conn., the alleged perpetrator of the mass killing of innocent people seems to have been mentally unstable. The man who shot Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords and the Army officer who killed soldiers at Fort Hood, Texas, also seemed to have at least some sign of mental instability.
