NEW YORK (AP) -- Citigroup, still partly owned by the government after a rescue during the financial meltdown, is giving raises to top executives that could amount to millions of dollars. CEO Vikram Pandit, who is drawing a salary of $1 for the second year in a row, did not get a raise, but the chairman of the bank hinted it plans a big payout for him next year. The announcement Friday by Citi, which remains weaker than most of the large American banks two years after the meltdown, raised questions among experts on corporate governance.

At the annual Habitat for Humanity dinner auction, the competition to eat first stimulates the flow of fundraising revenue. A $45 ticket was enough to get in the door this year at Hagerstown Community College's Athletic, Recreation, and Community Center. But those who wanted to get their buffet-style meals before everyone else paid extra for the privilege. The winning bid was in the $600 range. The right to be second, third and fourth added a total of $1,400 more to Habitat's proceeds for the evening.

WASHINGTON COUNTY -- The United Way of Washington County might not have made its monetary fundraising goal for 2008, but in a time of scarce resources and record need, generosity cannot be measured in dollars, organizers said at a celebration luncheon Friday. Instead, organizers focused on the energy and creativity volunteers used to collect $1,631,326, or about 81 percent of United Way's $2 million goal. "If I could do one thing differently this year, it would be our measures of success," United Way Executive Director Leah Gayman said.

But more importantly, they found they could use those skills to help change lives. Over the past few years, the Goodwins have volunteered with fellow employees at Citi to help build houses for Habitat for Humanity of Washington County. Saturday morning, they volunteered again. "This is important to us," Renee Goodwin said.

Bells tolled and bugles sounded at Hagerstown City Park Tuesday evening as the community paused to remember emergency personnel and those in the armed forces who lost their lives in the line of duty. Some stopped to reminisce in front of the 9/11 memorial at the park about the day 12 years ago, a beautiful late summer day not unlike Tuesday, when two planes flew into the World Trade Center in New York City, the Pentagon was attacked, and passengers fought with hijackers as they brought down an airliner near Shanksville, Pa. Remembrance in the Park was a tribute to lost lives, at war and at home, to terrorist attacks and other emergencies.

Have you ever heard of arresting people before they commited a crime? Yes, but only in science-fiction movies.  The American criminal justice system does not work that way. Therefore, much of police work is reactive.  But what about the other side of law enforcement? What do we do to reduce and suppress criminal activity? Specifically, what do we do about gangs in our city? The answer - especially when confronting potentially violent criminal gangs - is we do everything allowable by law. Take for example the April 2013 violence near Bethel Street.  The Hagerstown Police Department (HPD)

Hagerstown officials are considering changing the city's noise ordinance which has not been updated since 1996. Kathleen A. Maher, the city's planning director, said Tuesday that the proposed changes were needed to clearly state what entities enforce the ordinance and clean up wording that was considered confusing.  “It makes it clearer what the city's intent is,” Maher told the Hagerstown City Council during a work session at City Hall. New provisions include adding a statement of intent, which was not included previously, and clear definitions of contained terms such as “excessive noise,” “plainly audible” and “day time,” according to a memorandum to the five-member council.

Opera? In Hagerstown? Really? Yes, yes and yes! I had read Lifestyle colleagues' stories about the Hub Opera Ensemble. Friends who had attended performances told me how good they were.  I had to see for myself. Seeing - and hearing  - are believing. In 2010 Francesca Aguado and Caitlin Budny cofounded the community opera company. As their plans developed, they approached Joseph Marschner at Hagerstown Community College. Marschner, now chairman of the English and Humanities Division and assistant professor of music and drama, was glad to help.

A list on a news and opinion website that ranked Hagerstown among the 15 worst cities to have a baby is rankling local leaders, who called the survey flawed and meaningless. They aren't alone.

“The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones” gets off on the wrong foot with its terrible title. It's bad enough when sequels have that annoying colon, but “The Mortal Instruments” is not yet a series, so there's no need for this film to differentiate itself from other films. It would be like presumptively putting a “1” at the end of the title; it might make sense down the line if the film spawns sequels, but we don't know that yet. What if this film bombs and they don't make any sequels?
