FAA allows eastern approach on instrument landing at Hagerstown By SCOTT BUTKI scottb@herald-mail.com A new Federal Aviation Administration decision should make it easier for some pilots landing at Hagerstown Regional Airport to get around a problem caused by the enlarged no-fly zone over Camp David. Local pilots interviewed in recent days said that while avoiding the zone - increased from a three-mile to an eight-mile radius - is not difficult, the zone itself is causing another difficulty.

Winter left a few late memories Wednesday when an icy substance known as “graupel” fell across portions of Western Maryland, according to the National Weather Service. Graupel is formed when snow starts to evaporate when it is falling, but then picks up moisture as it nears the ground, said Stephen Konarik, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Sterling, Va. When graupel hits the ground, it looks like a pellet. But unlike sleet, which is clear, graupel is white, Konarik said.

Can we afford a baseball accord? A couple of weeks ago a nice reporter from CBS "Sportsline" called up to ask how Hagerstown's plans for a new minor league baseball stadium were progressing. He said he'd researched the story about a year ago, and wanted to see what had changed since then. After I stopped laughing I said "Not much.

andrear@herald-mail.com THURMONT, Md. - The area that is now Catoctin Mountain Park in the northwest corner of Frederick County, Md., boasts an industrious, illustrious - and sometimes contentious - history. It was a hunting ground for American Indians and the homeplace of early settlers to Western Maryland; the site of bountiful resources for tanneries, sawmills, an iron furnace and other industries; a farming community in its high valleys; an early hot spot for tourists; a retreat for presidents; a training ground for spies; and a mecca for making moonshine.

Without a staffed air traffic control tower, “there is going to be an incident” involving aircraft at or near Hagerstown Regional Airport, one concerned business owner said Thursday. “I feel very strongly that we are going to have an incident, and it's going to impact people on the ground as well as the crew in the aircraft when that happens,” said Austin Heffernan, owner of Royal Aircraft Services LLC on Airpark Road. Heffernan was one of five airport business officials who spoke Thursday during a news conference at the airport terminal, highlighting the local impact of proposed FAA cuts that would eliminate federal funding to 149 air control towers due to across-the-board cuts known as sequestration.

tammyb@herald-mail.com The first thing to strike a visitor arriving at Trout Run is the soothing rush of the waters of Little Hunting Creek as they cascade over the rocks. It is striking because it's the only audible sound, even though busy U.S. 15 is only a mile away. The almost instant transformation from freeway interchange to primeval forest nearly takes one's breath away. The seclusion of the retreat has made Trout Run a favorite hideaway for a number of well-heeled visitors, including several U.S. presidents.
