If there's one thing that irritates Hagerstown officials including Ric Kautz, the city's planning director, it's those real estate listings that advertise, "City services, but no city taxes!" That implies that it's cheaper to live outside the city than inside the municipal boundaries, and it's just not true, Kautz said. To give him a chance to debunk what he feels is a persistent myth, I recently sat down with Kautz, City Finance Director Al Martin and Community Relations Director Karen Giffin to find out how city living can be cheaper, even if you must pay city taxes.

HAGERSTOWN -- Santa Claus wasn't in his seat at the Valley Mall Junction, and the American Red Cross wrapping station was bare, but shoppers still filled the mall Friday morning, some cashing in their gift cards and others taking advantage of after-holiday sales. Valerie Malott of Williamsport said she saved 50 percent on everything she bought Friday morning -- some slacks, a calendar and shoes. The mall was not as crowded as she thought it would be, she said. Malott said she tries to avoid the crowds and usually doesn't shop on major sales days such as Black Friday.

HAGERSTOWN ? Several years ago, Herb Johnson sold a small ceramic vase for 50 cents at a yard sale. What he didn't know was that the vase once belonged to his wife's grandmother and was considered a family heirloom. "It was in a box in the garage," Johnson said. "I thought it was something she was planning on throwing out. Boy, did I get in trouble. " Now, nothing leaves the house without his wife's permission. "I learned my lesson the hard way," he said. Johnson was among the many vendors who participated Saturday in a community yard sale at the Fairgrounds Park stables.

  In downtown Montreal the shopping malls are below ground, which in my opinion is a good place for them. A little deeper might not be a bad idea. I wanted a suit but was delivered a lecture by a little snip of a sales boy with slicked back hair, an emaciated face and puppy dog eyes who seemed intent on destroying the wisdom of every clothing purchase I'd made over the past year. Yes, blue is in, but not THAT shade of blue which is too bright for this year and you certainly should have selected a more muted gold but if you're going to wear it in public anyway then you DEFINITELY don't want that yellow fleck in the tie which is much too close in hue. And he was saying all this in one of those French-English hybrids, with me answering back in kind with "Look ici Marc, vous sont starting to fromage me off. I certainment don't need vous to parlez me what to wear avec mon pantaloons.

tarar@herald-mail.com While recent amendments to a state bill would restrict some of the items Maryland's teachers could negotiate, Washington County School Board member J. Herbert Hardin said he doesn't believe the changes are restrictive enough. Hardin said he thinks that even with the amendments, the collective bargaining bill would bankrupt local school systems and lengthen the amount of time it takes to negotiate a contract with teachers. Claude Sasse, the president of the Washington County Teachers Association, said he continues to support the bill with the amendments.

TRI-STATE -- If you're considering buying a house, there might be some big bargains to be had among the properties that lenders have reclaimed. But it's buyer beware. "They're bargains, but you gotta know what you're doing," said Hagerstown Realtor Camille Turgeon, who has begun specializing in selling foreclosed houses. "A bank foreclosure is as 'as is' as you're going to get," Turgeon said. "The banks make it very clear: They're not responsible for anything" in terms of whether the furnace and other home features actually work.

WASHINGTON COUNTY -- For bibliophiles, Wednesday was a chance to drive home with Stephen King, Mark Twain and other authors -- well, at least their work. Bargain hunters arrived at the American Association of University Women's book sale early and in great volume. "We had 335 in the first 20 minutes," said Flossie Murdock, a volunteer. Before the opening of the sale -- which runs through Sunday at Washington County Agricultural Education Center, south of Hagerstown -- a line of people wrapped around the building, volunteer Nina Wells said.

Just when you thought you had heard it all, another athlete opens his mouth. ... Latrell Sprewell of the Minnesota Timberwolves (did you know I'd be talking about an NBA player?) is apparently offended by a contract offer he received from the team that would reportedly pay him $9 million per year. By now, we're not surprised when an overpaid professional athlete complains about how hard it is to be him. So, the idea that Sprewell is insulted by such a paltry offer is not necessarily noteworthy here.
