Beth Johnston has attended all the previous Art of Cooking fundraisers at Fountain Head Country Club. She has enjoyed watching fellow club members prepare a dish on camera and savored the delicious dishes served by the country club's executive chef, Todd Reynolds. Johnston is attending Art of Cooking again this year, but she'll be a little more nervous. She's going to be in front of the video camera. "It will be good they (the audience) are not in the room," Johnston said with a laugh.

BERKELEY SPRINGS, W.VA. - Some of them were identified only by the abandoned cars they left parked nearby. Others were identified by hotel registration records or by tags or bracelets they were wearing. When the Washington House Hotel at the corner of Fairfax and Washington streets was reduced to rubble in 1974 by a fire, 12 people either staying or living at the hotel died. The intense heat of that fire melted a face of the clock in the Morgan County Courthouse's tower. Thirty-four years later, that clock itself was lost last week when the courthouse burned.

Camera on Eastern Boulevard would rake in the bucks To the editor: Did you read the article in The Herald-Mail about these new cameras to catch speeders in school zones? Do you think they have an extra one they could install on the curve of Eastern Boulevard right before you get to the YMCA? Hagerstown could fill the city's coffers up fast - the camera would be clicking away. It would help the taxpayers in Potomac Manor to be able to get out of Chartridge Drive and either in traffic on Eastern Boulevard or across the road to the Y. You take your life in your own hands when you pull out and go left toward Long Meadow Shopping Center, because the traffic coming around the curve behind you is going 45-50 mph not the 30 they should be driving and they're up on your bumper pushing you to go faster.

HANCOCK - Police used TV news equipment to try to get James A. Prevatt III to come out of his room at Americas Best Value Inn in Hancock early in the hostage standoff that ended after 45 hours. At one point during negotiations with police, Prevatt said he would come out if his exit would be on the TV news, Maryland State Police spokesman Greg Shipley said Saturday. Shipley said Prevatt's apparent reasoning was that a TV news crew could document how police reacted and treated him, Shipley said.
