Washington County Public Schools will hold a community meeting on Tuesday afternoon on a proposed policy that would address gangs, gang activity and similar destructive or illegal group behavior in schools. The policy is not in reaction to local incidents, but a mandate from the state, said Board of Education member Jacqueline Fischer, who chairs the school board's Policy Committee. The gang policy is required by the state's Safe Schools Act of 2010. The school system has a harassment policy that has some similarity to this, and a student handbook that lists punishments for various offenses, Fischer said.

Darlene Caufman and her husband, Ken, arrived more than an hour before Saturday's Franklin-Fulton County Band Festival with the goal of claiming a seat as close to the stage as possible, without actually sitting on stage with her grandsons. When your grandsons are some of the "best of the best in the county," as Caufman said, you want to have a front row seat. "We wanted to come because we love band. But, we have grandchildren in it, and that makes it even more special," said Caufman, a Greencastle resident whose grandsons, Hunter Rawlings and Sean Martin, performed in the band.

BERKELEY SPRINGS, W.Va. -- This year, 42 kids are attending the Ice House Theater Camp to learn about acting and to perform in a play at the end of the two-week program. The program has become so popular in 12 years that this year's camp was moved to Berkeley Springs High School, said directors Brice Williams and Margi Griffiths. Williams said they are teaching the kids acting techniques in the high school auditorium and the multipurpose area across the hallway. The children will perform in "Blather, Blarney and Balderdash," which are old Irish folk tales by Patrick Rainville Dorn.
