To build a better Maugans Avenue, Washington County bought part or all of about 45 properties, said Joseph Kuhna, the real property administrator for the county's Division of Public Works. The county spent $2.7 million on land it permanently obtained and on various easements, county records show. Most owners weren't happy at first about giving up land, but grew to accept it, Kuhna said. The county tried to be fair. "We weren't looking to force anybody's hand," he said.

I are so smart To all men: Hey, guys, I'm onto something, and oh boy, is this great. To all women: Do not read. Go straight to the Lifestyle section. There's a wicked Heloise in today. OK, fellows, listen closely. I had this epiphany over the holidays and frankly I don't know why I hadn't thought of it sooner. Or used it to my advantage sooner. Here's the deal. Women think we guys are dumb. That's right, D-U-M-M, dumb. I know, I know, I didn't think it was possible either, but it's true.

WASHINGTON COUNTY -- From stocks to mortgages to lost jobs, Anirban Basu mapped out the economy Tuesday with a ream of charts and dollops of humor. Basu's analysis and irreverent bluntness is a staple of the annual Washington County Economic Summit, which the Chamber of Commerce and Economic Development Commission co-sponsor. At Tuesday's summit at Fountain Head Country Club, Basu -- the chairman and CEO of Sage Policy Group, a Baltimore consulting firm -- riffed on: o Cumberland, Md.: "The hottest housing market in these here United States," as he called it. A chart of nine hot metro housing markets had Cumberland at the top, with median house sales up about 22 percent from 2008 to 2009, as Washington and Garrett counties got more expensive.

"I'd like to responed to the person who said Boonsboro did a good job. You must live on a side street or from Reeders north. South of Reeders had the state come through and shove the snow and ice up on piles, some in front of driveways and they stayed away from the curb where you had to park on the line because they had the big chunks of snow on the curb and sidewalk instead of hauling it away like they did north of Reeders! The town says the state is responsable for removing the snow, then why does the town get the money from parking tickets when the sweeper truck goes through?"

Pat Kurtz said she and others came up with an idea to offer karaoke nights to give developmentally disabled people something to do during the winter months. But Kurtz said it is hard to hold such activities in places such as bars. Therefore, Kurtz and other members of the Tri-State Civitan club are now welcoming dozens of developmentally disabled people for regular karaoke nights at Trinity Lutheran Church on Randolph Avenue. Thanks to help from DJ Bobby Hayes and Trinity Lutheran Church, which decided to provide space for the event, Tri-State Civitan is able to provide developmentally disabled people two hours of karaoke fun in the lower level of the church.

The reigning queens of Maryland Class 1A volleyball are taking aim at a lot of history in 2012. Smithsburg - which enters this season as the three-time defending state champion - can become the seventh team in state history to win four straight state titles, and the second team in Washington County history. Williamsport won the 1A title each year from 2002-05. The Leopards have won eight state titles overall - the fourth-most in the state. Not that Smithsburg coach Rachel Brashear needs to bring any of this up. “I don't even tell them at all. They know,” she said.

HAGERSTOWN - When Robert Riedel learned that the 2006 reunion of the men who served aboard the USS Hector was going to be in Hagerstown, the 94-year-old Michigan resident knew he had to be there. After all, Hagerstown is his hometown. "I was born in Hagerstown in 1911, and lived here until I was 25 years old," Riedel said. He might never have left, but his new bride wanted to move to Michigan to be closer to her family. The reunion began Wednesday at the Clarion Hotel and Conference Center Antietam Creek and ends today.
