SMITHSBURG -- Several years ago, Brian and Renee Goodwin learned something about themselves. First, they discovered they could master construction skills. 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.

On Feb. 13, the United Way of Washington County will officially wrap up its 2008 campaign short of its $2 million goal. But that doesn't mean the volunteers and staff have thrown in the towel. "As of Feb. 3, we are at 78 percent of goal," said Addie Staebler, United Way campaign director. That translates to $1,565,000. Staebler said she is proud of the incredible support the 2008 campaign has received despite the bleak economic climate both locally and globally. News of layoffs at two major companies with significant employee-driven United Way campaigns - Citi and Volvo Powertrain - didn't escape United Way's attention.

To the editor: Wow! Thank you Hagerstown! Blues Fest 2007 was one marvelous hoedown that this community presented together over the weekend of June 1. Help me remember: Did the publisher of the world's largest blues publication really say from our Sunday stage that Blues Fest was the best city-run blues festival in the country - or was it in the world? Either way, Hagerstown, that's some pretty rarified air you are breathing! Blues Fest's success really reflects the broad community participation turning out to lend time, money or just a helping hand toward our event, so deservedly pat yourselves on the back.
