Mark Twain wrote, "When I was a boy of 14, my father was so ignorant I could hardly stand to have the old man around. But when I got to be 21, I was astonished at how much the old man had learned in seven years. " We all wish that our teenagers would sit down and talk with us, confide in us and tell us everything that's going on in their lives. But, as my son once told me, "Mom, that's not gonna happen!" Getting through to a teenager isn't always easy, especially if they've already decided that you don't know what you're talking about.

Just once, can't some guy go shopping in Hagerstown without taking off his clothes? Less than a week after a fellow toodle-ooed his way through the Centre at Hagerstown shopping center, another gent had what Janet Jackson would call a wardrobe malfunction in a store in the same location. And later he was credited with "airing his concerns" before a clerk at a local tanning salon. Once again, the police - who, all things being even, would probably rather shoot it out with crack addicts in a Philly ghetto than manhandle naked guys - were called to the scene.

martinsburg@herald-mail.com MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - Like her fellow counselors, Cindy Hughes has been there. An Army veteran, Hughes was in the combat theater in the Persian Gulf from 1990 to 1991. Currently a social worker at the Vet Center - which provides re-adjustment counseling to veterans, specifically for post-traumatic stress disorder - Hughes was on hand as the center held an open house Thursday afternoon for women veterans in the four-state region. Although the center currently counsels a few women, most of its clients are men who served in Vietnam, according to Hughes and fellow counselor and Vietnam veteran Ronald Bell.
