Civil Air Patrol does more than search and rescue To the editor: Are you familiar with the local Civil Air Patrol in Washington County? Well, you should be. This program is one of the best youth programs in the area. I know this firsthand, because my son benefited greatly from his participation in this program, which encouraged him to make the military his career.  The first thing you notice about cadets is their manners. “Yes, ma'm” and “Yes, sir” are a constant.

A $7,000 scholarship from The Ninety-Nines, an international organization for female pilots, has made it possible for one woman to further her dream of soaring in the sky. Sandra Fox, 50, of Hagerstown, said she was not only excited about winning the scholarship, but surprised because she is older. "I thought they would give the scholarship to someone younger with a long career ahead of them, so I was surprised that they considered me," she said. Fox said she became a member of The Ninety-Nines -- a nonprofit group established in 1929 by 99 female pilots -- in 2008, when she moved to Hagerstown with her fiance.
