For years, every time Winston and Susan Herbst would pass by an abandoned building in Hagerstown, they could only see the potential. "We'd say, 'That would make a good youth center,'" Winston said during a telephone interview.

But once, as a struggling, Christian teenager in Smithsburg, Kercheval turned to another creative outlet. He wrote a batch of inspirational poems as he worked through a troubling time in his life. Those poems are now available in a book, "They That Wait Upon The Lord ... " Kercheval is still a little surprised at what he produced three decades ago. "I wrote those between 10th grade and 11th grade," he said.

Santa Claus is not Satan To the editor: In response to: "A spirit we must all fight," by Leonard Cooper: Christmas is a huge celebration of the birth of our savior Jesus Christ. It is a time to remember the gift of life that is given to us through Jesus and also the demonstration of God's love for all people. We exchange gifts as a tradition and in remembrance of the gift that God has given to us. The story of Santa Claus is derived from a Turkish man named Nickelless Clout who shared his wealth by giving gifts to children.

HAGERSTOWN -- John R. "Jack" Hershey Jr., Phil Rohrer and John Waltersdorf might have stepped down from the Hagerstown YMCA's board of trustees, but that doesn't mean they won't be available to lend a hand when called upon. "They're not totally retiring. They're just getting retitled," Hagerstown YMCA Executive Director Mike Flicek said. "I don't know how we're going to get along without them, but they promised to come to meetings," said Paula Lampton, who recently was elected chairwoman of the Hagerstown YMCA Board of Trustees.
