In 1982, he crossed The Maryland Theatre stage to receive his diploma from Smithsburg High School. More than 20 years later, Brian Sullivan was on that stage again - this time as executive director of the theater. Hired in 2005, Sullivan brought lots of experience working in old theaters and arts organizations across the country. "One of the reasons we're excited about the theater is the executive director," said Maryland Theatre Board President Ron Bowers. "He has a wealth of knowledge of the arts.

In contrast to the disappointing turnout in the recent primary election, some Washington County voters were lined up this morning to cast their ballots before the polling places were even open.

" Polls all around Washington County opened at 7 a.m. They will remain open until 8 tonight.

CHARLES TOWN, W.VA. - Voters in the Huntfield, Briar Run and Fairfax Crossing housing developments in Jefferson County were allowed to vote in the wrong state House of Delegates races in the May 9 primary election, and state and local election officials are working to correct the situation before the Nov. 7 general election, officials said Monday. It is believed the problem existed before 2004, Jefferson County Clerk Jennifer Maghan said in a statement. The mix-up would not have affected any House of Delegates races in Jefferson County in the primary election because the candidates all ran unopposed, said Del. Bob Tabb, D-Jefferson.

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.

On the fifth anniversary of the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, it is worth reflecting on the changes - good and bad - that have taken place. Five years ago, Americans found that their nation was unprepared for this new type of war, that security was so lax that terrorists could bring sharp objects on board an airliner and that the 1993 attack on the World Trade Center hadn't been the wake-up call it should have been. But after the attacks, America responded, with many coming to the Ground Zero site in New York City as volunteers.

I walk out on stage, and it all comes back to me. I feel complete joy when I see audience members' attentive faces and see people laugh. It all reminds me of why I act. I am part of Thespian Troupe 502 at Martinsburg (W.Va.) High School. The International Thespian Society is a global association of actors, hosting local and national theater festivals. It all started with a group of teachers in the spring of 1929, in Fairmont, W.Va. Since then, the ITS has helped more than 2 million students fulfill their dreams of acting.

Two dozen is a nice number if you're talking about doughnuts. But Washington County Commissioner candidates? I'm not sure. Apparently, Greg Snook is the only person in Washington County who does NOT want to be a commissioner. So we have one smart one, anyway. Twenty-four, count 'em, 24, county commissioner candidates. It's enough to start their own volleyball team. Oh wait, did I say volleyball team? I meant volleyball league. The field is littered with elections both past and present, including one member each of Hagerstown City Council and School Board looking to graduate to the rank of commissioner.

If you happen to be near the Potomac River this weekend - particularly the area above Williamsport - you might be surprised to see how quickly the river has cleared after all of the rains of the past few weeks. Some of the major tributaries continue to be muddy, but the mainstem of the river is actually in good shape. Overall, the fishing is good. Over the past week, we have had good luck using typical smallmouth lures - tube lures and grubs during the day and small surface lures in the late evening.

When the votes were cast in the last Washington County Commissioners election, Greg Snook had both won and lost: Won the race, but lost anonymity. Snook seemed most comfortable on boards with a clear three- or four-member majority, where his vote was not central to the outcome. But the new board was clearly comprised of a couple of two-member factions. Commissioners John Munson and Bill Wivell preferred what is, while commissioners Jim Kercheval and Dori Nipps concentrated more on what will be. Suddenly, Snook's vote mattered, and mattered very much.
