Hagerstown Mayor Bill Breichner said last week that designating one employee as project coordinator for the new downtown campus of the University System of Maryland is a "luxury" the city can't afford. It all depends on what your definition of "luxury" is. For a motorcycle rider, a helmet may be a luxury - until there's a an accident. Then the luxury suddenly becomes a life-saving necessity. For a homeowner, insurance may be a luxury - until there's a fire or someone slips on the front steps.

The Washington County Commissioners on Tuesday decided not to create an emergency services coordinator position. County Director of Emergency Services Joe Kroboth asked the commissioners to postpone a vote on the position and to honor an Aug. 19 vote taken by the Washington County Volunteer Fire and Rescue Association that the county not create the position. Kroboth said the association rejected the idea that the county create the position by a 13-12 vote. The coordinator would have overseen ambulance companies in the county, a job that currently is managed by the Fire and Rescue Association.

Berkeley County officials are moving forward with a plan to have all of the county's museums open on the third weekend of each month as part of a coordinated heritage tourism promotion plan. Laura Gassler, director of the Martinsburg-Berkeley County Convention & Visitors Bureau, told board members Wednesday that the plan would allow tourists the opportunity to visit all of the county's museums as part of a day-long visit, if not stay overnight. Gassler said she and Berkeley County Historical Society President Todd Funkhouser have been working on the plan, which comes as county museums are “desperate for volunteers” to staff them.

A request to change the title and increase the pay of a currently vacant Washington County emergency services position to better align with the job's responsibilities, and to hire a new person to fill the vacancy, drew mixed reviews from county leaders last week. It also raised concern from officers of at least two county volunteer EMS companies, who said they were not consulted or even notified of the request made by county Division of Emergency Services Director Kevin Lewis. Smithsburg EMS Chief James Ulrich, who serves as acting chairman of the Washington County Volunteer Fire and Rescue Association's EMS committee, said Friday that he and others from volunteer companies did not learn of the proposal until they saw a copy of the agenda a few days before last Tuesday's meeting of the Washington County Board of Commissioners.

Laura Gassler, who presented the concept to the Berkeley County Council on April 11, said the plan aims to address a shortage in volunteers that tourism-oriented groups such as the Berkeley County Historical Society currently face. Historical Society President Todd Funkhouser said the organization has “a good nucleus” of volunteers, but often not enough to staff an entire weekend.

Three decades ago, it seemed like a crazy idea. On Sunday, Mother's Day Out at Emmanuel United Methodist Church in Hagerstown was recognized in a celebration marking 30 years for a program the community has embraced. The anniversary celebration was held during the church's 9:30 a.m. worship service. When Lillian Marquart (now Myers), then the Christian education director at the church, proposed starting a weekly program for preschoolers and their parents at her church in 1982, members at Emmanuel United Methodist Church were skeptical.
