Q. Over the years, you have bailed me out several times on PC-related issues. A recent article, however, has caused me frustration (perhaps my ignorance). You mentioned the Alt+Prt Scr (Windows) option that allows you to copy what's on the screen even if it is copy-protected. Maybe my mechanics are ill informed, but I cannot get this to work on my 2-month-old powerful new Windows XP PC. Can you help with the specific procedure? - Jerry Olexa A. My, oh my, Mr. O, your note is among a bunch I got asking for more details of the screen capture routines in Windows and Mac after I mentioned it in that column.
by ANDREW SCHOTZ | December 5, 2002 WASHINGTON COUNTY - John C. Munson has a copy of the secret agreement for which he is suing and wants to make public, but he believes he still can't release it. Shortly after he was sworn in as a Washington County Commissioner Tuesday, Munson received, without asking, a copy of the confidential contract between the county and former Economic Development Commission Director John Howard. On Oct. 28, before he was elected, Munson sued the county for a copy of the agreement because his Public Information Act request was denied.

A communications company can be a very public venue in which to work, both externally and internally. Readers of the paper easily can recognize the person who is responsible for its content. At the top of this column each week is the photo of an employee, whose picture will be seen by about 90,000 people. Whether you like the column or not, you know who wrote it and where to find them. On many news stories, reporters are identified by byline and e-mail addresses. Photographers are noted under every picture.

A stack of letters bound in ribbon and hidden in an Eastern Shore (Md.) home ignited an acclaimed book telling the stories of little-known Civil War heroes and skyrocketed author Adam Goodheart to the New York Times nonfiction best-seller list.

Craig Kercheval is an artist. His apartment in Hagerstown is lined with his drawings of superheroes, some copies of favorite comic book characters, some original heroes and villains Kercheval came up with. But once, as a struggling, Christian teenager in Smithsburg, Kercheval turned to another creative outlet. He wrote a batch of inspirational poems as he worked through a troubling time in his life. Those poems are now available in a book, "They That Wait Upon The Lord ... " Kercheval is still a little surprised at what he produced three decades ago. "I wrote those between 10th grade and 11th grade," he said.

Nationally recognized Historian Dennis E. Frye's latest book is not a picture book, a fact book or a biography.   It conveniently leaves out dates and is not a tome about history. Instead, the book tells the stories of people in Washington County who contributed to the county's history, growth and change. "It's a book about the foundation, my personal foundation as a son of this county, established several hundred years ago," Frye said. Or as the opening chapter of his book reads: "This is a book about legacy.

o Bulk of information requests related to fire, police calls WASHINGTON COUNTY -- A one-page photocopy that costs 25 cents at Hagerstown City Hall will cost 20 times as much -- $5 -- at the Hagerstown Police Department. The gap illustrates the wide latitude in providing public information in Maryland, where the law gives little guidance. Maryland's Public Information Act (PIA) says government agencies may charge a "reasonable" fee for public records. "Reasonable" is defined as "bearing a reasonable relationship to the recovery of actual costs incurred by a governmental unit.

History was made Tuesday night. Nov. 4, 2008, will go down as a watershed moment in American history. My fellow Americans, for the first time ever ... ... a female Republican vice presidential candidate lost her bid to move into Number One Observatory Circle. While Sarah Palin (or is it Tina Fey?) watched the results of the election in Arizona, far from her home state of Alaska, I spent Election Night as far away from the election as possible. Since we had a full staff of copy editors at The Herald-Mail on Tuesday night, I got to work on the Money pages for today's newspaper.
