The National Weather Service says that today should be partly cloudy, with a high temperature near 72. If that's not perfect weather for Election Day, it is close enough. If you are registered to vote in the Maryland primary, we urge you to go to the polls, to make your voice heard on the issues that face Washington County, Maryland and the nation. The more people who vote, the less likely it is that special interests will use low turnouts to manipulate elections to their advantage.

By CLYDE FORD Staff Writer, Charles Town SHEPHERDSTOWN, W.Va. - Artist Scott Cawood draws from the images of gargoyles and grotesques to create his nightmarish sculptures of masks. Using scrap pieces of metal and objects he forges from his background as a blacksmith, Cawood creates horrifying images from mythology and his own mind. The Antietam Furnace, Md., artist has an exhibit at A II A, an art gallery located just outside of Shepherdstown on W.Va. 230. Cawood, 43, worked as a blacksmith, and years ago began creating the metal masks to give to friends as presents.

BOONSBORO -- The bulb finally burned out in the old spotlight. Those star-quality names that Boonsboro has leaned on the last few years have finally graduated and been expunged from the roster. Branden McLean and Drew Lowery have gone the way of Tyler Walsh, Seth Poffenberger and the rest of the gang that helped the Warriors to some special seasons in the not-so-distant past. They have turned the keys of the locker room over to the next generation of Warriors, getting out of the way for them to make a name for themselves.
