Letters to the Editor 4/25 County sells itself for poor-quality growth To the editor: Our business community and local government officials always remember to use the "natural beauty of Western Maryland" as a major selling point when they are attempting to attract new businesses to our area. And certainly Western Maryland is a beautiful place to live, work, and play. But the natural beauty of Washington County and more specifically the Hagerstown area, are about to be lost forever as a result of laziness, greed, and poor planning by these same business and government leaders.

andrewm@herald-mail.com James Buchanan senior Dustin Pine went 3-0 at the Juniata Duals last Saturday, improving to 29-2 this season while becoming his school's career leader in victories with 85. Chad Witmer, a 2004 JB graduate, had the previous record of 82. Pine, who's No. 3 at 189 pounds in The Patriot-News District 3 Class AA rankings, still has more to check off on his lofty list of goals. "Dustin wants to place in the top three at states and get 100 wins," Rockets coach Bill Mitchell said.

Jesse Buchman lost his cool, but not his fire Friday night at the fifth annual MVAL Antietam Indoor Track & Field Championships at Hagerstown Community College. The Williamsport junior won the 500-meter dash, but was disqualified for an unsportsmanlike remark he made at the finish line, costing the Wildcats valuable team points in their quest to knock off two-time defending champ Smithsburg. "I don't even remember what I said, actually. When you have the adrenaline flowing, things just come out, you know," Buchman said.

“Since most of the contributors to this section don't do independent research, I'd like to add some actual facts to the discussions. In George W. Bush's time in office (eight years), the Republican Party controlled both houses of Congress for only four years, and two of those years - '03 and '04 by only 51 senators. In 2007 and '08, Bush's last two years in office, both houses were controlled by the Democrats. So, President Obama inherited a Congress controlled by his own party.” - Williamsport “April 16, 2009, OLC opinions disclosed by the Obama administration.

Bush and God To the editor: These words have made for many discussions - some hot, some not - over the past few months. To the committed Democrat, John Kerry is the choice. Sen. Kerry claims that he has "a fresh start for America. " A "plan" that will guide the American people to a better and more prosperous tomorrow. Kerry's plan is without a doubt liberal. It is a plan that even some Democrats see as untried, perhaps untrue and most definitely unsure. To the committed Republican, George W. Bush is the choice.
