"To the person that responded about hitting my dog on Sharpsburg Pike: First of all, it was not 4 a.m., it was 5:30 p.m., and my dog was on a dog cord and broke free while my husband was out cutting wood, but the person would have known that if they would have stopped.

An agreement signed Nov. 10 establishing a relationship between Washington County and a city in China did not have the full support of the Washington County Commissioners, according to Commissioner Kristin B. Aleshire. Aleshire said he was opposed to the relationship because of China's communist government and said the matter should have been brought to the commissioners for a vote before the agreement was signed. Commissioners President John F. Barr signed a document establishing the "friendship-city relationship" during a recent trip to China with Kaplan University officials.

WASHINGTON COUNTY -- On a recent trip to China, Washington County Commissioners President John F. Barr formalized a partner-community relationship between Washington County and Jinhua City, in the eastern Chinese province of Zhejiang. The relationship grew out of an agreement between Kaplan University's Hagerstown campus and the Jinhua College of Profession and Technology that was formalized during the same visit. Under Kaplan's agreement, students from the Jinhua college will travel to Hagerstown to study business administration and accounting and will have the opportunity to earn associate or bachelor's degrees from Kaplan, said Chris Motz, president of Kaplan University's Hagerstown campus.

WASHINGTON (AP) -- A U.S. congressional advisory panel said Thursday that Chinese spies are aggressively stealing American secrets to use in building Beijing's military and economic strength. The U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission also said in its annual report to lawmakers that Beijing is building a navy that could block the U.S. military from getting to the region if fighting should break out between China and Taiwan, the self-governing island off China's southeastern coast that China claims as its own. The report follows President Barack Obama's visit this week to China, where he had extensive talks with President Hu Jintao.

KEEDYSVILLE -- The evidence of Rocky Rutherford's interest in basketball is obvious as visitors pull up to a hoop in his parents' driveway. Rocky said he plays basketball a lot, and his skill was demonstrated when he and other youths played against a team last month in China. The American kids won. Rocky, a 15-year-old sophomore at Boonsboro High School, was in China as part of the People to People Ambassador Programs. President Dwight D. Eisenhower, who founded the program in 1956, said it was important for ordinary citizens to interact, believing that could promote cultural understanding and world peace, according to the organization's Web site.

Even though he is arguably the most successful athlete at James Buchanan High School, Andrew Shatzer doesn't always play the part. "His gym teacher was amazed when he found out how good he was," said Shatzer's coach, Patty Leazier. "He was like, 'No way.'" "I got a 'C' in gym," Shatzer said with a smile. If inline speedskating were a part of the phys ed curriculum, however, he'd be in a class of his own. Within the sport itself, he already is. Shatzer, 17, of St. Thomas, Pa., who will be a senior this year at James Buchanan, is one of the top inline speedskaters in the United States.
