SHARPSBURG - One dead horse and the skeletal remains of at least five others were found on a Sharpsburg farm, prompting an investigation into possible animal cruelty and neglect there, officials said Sunday. The property at 4040 Mills Road has been seized, and the Humane Society of Washington County is helping to care for nearly 75 horses found there. Most of the animals were ill and malnourished, with visible rib cages and backbones, said Paul Miller, executive director of the Humane Society.

SHARPSBURG - Hay, halters, lead ropes, water troughs and other supplies are needed to care for about 50 horses at a Sharpsburg farm where officials are investigating possible animal cruelty and neglect. "These horses need food now," said Katherine Cooker, the Humane Society of Washington County's manager of development and community relations. Workers from the local and national Humane Society, workers from Days End Farm Horse Rescue in Howard County, Md., veterinarians and others on Monday evaluated and cared for about 50 horses that remained at Windrinker Farm, said Paul Miller, executive director of the Humane Society of Washington County.

Downtown has been overtaken by events To the editor: I read with interest David Hanlin’s two articles on revitalizing downtown. I first visited Hagerstown in 1954. Downtown was thriving. There were two major department stores there (J.C. Penney and Montgomery Ward, as I recall). Other businesses were a major draw for shoppers also, such as a five and dime and a drugstore. There were two banks and two savings and loans. There was no neighborhood branch banking then.

A year after its last rally failed to draw enough participants to fill a soccer mom's minivan, the Ku Klux Klan has announced that it will beat the dead horse of white supremacy once again, this time at a July 9 rally in Boonsboro. People of good will have already begun organizing counter-events, but we have to wonder: What would happen if everyone with an ounce of sense just decided to ignore the Klan rally? Klan members are entitled to expound on their views, no matter how much they may offend the rest of us, under the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.

"I am calling about the man on Md. 77 that shot that little white dog. I think someone should tie him to a tree and let the bugs pick at him until he is dead. That is cruelty to animals. " "With all the construction downtown and with the way traffic is backed up, I can't understand why there aren't any police officers downtown, especially around the college construction area and the courthouses, because people are still double parking there. That is part of the reason why traffic is backed up, you have citizens double parking, delivery trucks double parking and nobody can get by. " "The article by Charley Reese on the editorial page on Thursday was really correct.

By CLYDE FORD Staff Writer, Charles Town RANSON, W.Va. - Just in time for Halloween, something stalked and killed a horse on a Jefferson County farm early Wednesday, leaving a bloody and partially eaten carcass behind. A wild animal, possibly a mountain lion, attacked the colt about 2:30 a.m. Wednesday, said Jefferson County Animal Control Officer Donald Longerbeam. "We're kind of baffled right now. We suspect something big," said Conservation Officer C.B. Wade of the West Virginia Division of Natural Resources Law Enforcement.

SHARPSBURG - The woman at the center of a days-long investigation into allegations of animal neglect at a Sharpsburg horse farm admits she was in a bind, but she says she could not find anyone to help. No charges had been filed in the investigation at the farm, where officials have said they found thin and injured horses, Humane Society of Washington County spokeswoman Katherine Cooker said Tuesday afternoon. Barb Reinken, who said she has not been able to stay at her farm since officials seized it Saturday, blamed worms for making some of her horses thin.

PREP BASEBALL WAYNESBORO, Pa. - In a season that has become a mathematics lesson gone awry, the Waynesboro baseball team has endured plenty of pain while learning simple subtraction. Wednesday afternoon, the Indians found joy in the law of averages. Joey Wetherald's bloop single in the bottom of the seventh scored two runs to tie the game, and his gapper in the bottom of the ninth plated the game-winner as No. 9 Waynesboro won its sixth straight game with a 5-4 victory over No. 1 Chambersburg in the Mid Penn Commonwealth.

WASHINGTON COUNTY - The remains of a horse from a property in Washington County tested positive for rabies, Washington County Health Department spokesman Rod MacRae confirmed Wednesday afternoon. The Maryland Department of Agriculture issued a hold order, similar to a quarantine, to the property on Cool Hollow Road, said Sue Dupont, spokeswoman for the department. The hold order, effective Wednesday, will prevent any animals from leaving the property and any new animals from going onto the property for six months, Dupont said.

To the editor: BOO! As befitting the season of masquerade and scary events, Maryland taxpayers are about to experience a "Carrie" moment. Gov. Martin O'Malley plans to siphon off $l00 million each year from the treasury and hand it out to Maryland horse racing. The dead hand of Maryland horse racing has reached out from the grave and grabbed taxpayers by the throat. Giving a bulging goody bag to Maryland horse racing is quite a trick when citizens are rightly being asked to pay higher taxes for education, transportation and health care.
