Congratulations, Mayor Breichner The Hagerstown election is over, the ballots are counted, and William "Bill" Breichner has been elected as the city's next mayor. Our congratulations go out to him, because based on what he said during the election, we feel the city will be in good hands. Breichner has served the city for a total of 45 years - as a city employee, superintendent of the water department, as city administrator and for the last 12 years as a councilman. But Breichner has done more than put in time, as his campaign proposals demonstrate.

Today we applaud Steven Wolfe, a Grace Academy eighth grader, for making it through two rounds of the Scripps National Spelling Bee this week. To get that far by correctly spelling words that many people have never heard of is a great achievement indeed. Wolfe, 14, won the 26th Annual Washington County Spelling bee in March by spelling "synapse. " According to the judge's list, that word means "the locus at which the nervous impulse passes from the axon of one neuron to the dendrites of another.

“This call is from the caller who said that Romney has no military experience or foreign policy. It seems I upset a lot of conservatives, which is very great. That was my intent. They're the party that keeps on saying that military experience is needed. They always want a military man to be their nominee, but the minute they get a draft dodger who went to France for three years during Vietnam, they're happy. President Obama was a child during Vietnam, so don't even compare the two.” - Hagerstown “I'm calling about my daughter, which you probably won't put it in the paper anyhow.

High-five — A slapping of the upraised, open hand of another person, as in congratulation or celebration. Or, for the University System of Maryland at Hagerstown, a five-year accomplishment characterized by a partnership with five Maryland universities, more than 500 college graduates and $500,000 in scholarship money. USM-H hosted a “Cheers for 5 Years” reception Friday at its downtown Hagerstown campus to celebrate its anniversary. The evening wasn’t exactly hands slapped high in the air, but the buffet spread, the proclamations and mock-knighting ceremony by the queen were the college’s way of congratulating those in Hagerstown who helped make higher education accessible to area students while also asking their support for the future.
