Nine students from E. Russell Hicks Middle School spent early January in the Miller House in downtown Hagerstown by portraying discussions held by President Abraham Lincoln with his cabinet, before and after the Battle of Antietam about the Emancipation Proclamation.  The script was written by the students as a part of the Student Service Learning Program as part of a national Civil War Sesquicentennial umbrella effort called The Journey Through Hallowed Ground Partnership with public schools, known as “Of the Student, By the Student, For the Student.” Over several months, E. Russell Hicks Middle School students have worked with National Park Rangers at Antietam National Battlefield, historians, JTHG Partnership educators and researched historical source documents to learn about life on and off the battlefield during the 1860s and during the bloodiest battle in American history.

Dear Pat: I am tired of squeaking room and cabinet doors that stick or come open. I plan to replace all the hinges that don't work right. There seem to be hundreds of hinge designs. What type holds up best? - Chris H. Dear Chris: Hinges take more abuse and wear and tear than most people realize. The full weight of a door pulls out on the upper hinge and pushes in on the lower one. Even though there is not a lot of movement over the pin in the hinge, dust and dirt in there cause them to wear.

MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - A C-130 airplane carrying West Virginia Gov. Cecil Underwood and his cabinet will bring the heart of state government to the Eastern Panhandle for a 48-hour tour on Aug. 31. The visit is an attempt to bridge the perceived gap between the Eastern Panhandle and the rest of the state, Underwood said. "I want my cabinet to see the Eastern Panhandle and I want the people of this area to see us," Underwood said. In Martinsburg Wednesday for the dedication of the new Eastern Regional Jail and a child safety seat initiative at Martinsburg High School, Underwood said the distance from the state capital in Charleston has created a situation in which the Eastern Panhandle sometimes feels out of touch.

WASHINGTON (AP) - President Bush has chosen national security adviser Condoleezza Rice to replace Colin Powell as secretary of state in his second term, a senior administration official said Monday. Powell, a retired four-star general who often clashed with more hawkish members of the administration on Iraq and other foreign policy issues, resigned in a Cabinet exodus that promises a starkly different look to President Bush's second-term team. The White House on Monday announced Powell's exit along with the resignations of Education Secretary Rod Paige, Agriculture Secretary Ann Veneman and Energy Secretary Spencer Abraham.

For many of us, each New Year's Day brings with it inspiration to clean and organize our homes. There's nothing new about that. But every five years or so, the clutter in our homes needs to be examined more thoroughly. For example, most of us know to keep tax records for seven to 10 years, depending on your tax status. So it makes sense after tax time to gather your financial records from the previous year into a labeled banker's box and stash them in the attic. However, there is no need keep those records for, say, 30 years.
