The French revolution of 1789 was bloody. The Republican revolution of 1994 was symbolic. The Egyptian revolution of 2011 unified dissimilar factions. But they all proved one thing: It's a lot easier to throw bombs from the outside than it is to actually govern. French revolutionaries championed liberty, virtue, universal voting rights, abolition of slavery and elimination of the death penalty. And to implement this agenda, they thought it was productive to guillotine everyone in sight, until they themselves were guillotined five years later.

The opening of Hagerstown's new 188-space deck on South Potomac Street is another step forward in the revitalization of downtown Hagerstown and creation of an Arts & Entertainment District. It is also a demonstration of the good things that can happen when local governments and private developers work together. The $3.1-plus million structure was built with the help of major contributions from Bowman Development Corp. and the Washington County Commissioners. Bowman is also renovating properties on the street, some of which have been vacant for many years.

WAYNESBORO, Pa. -- Waynesboro wrestling coach Eric Mowen had certain expectations for his team Thursday night against Chambersburg. Evidently his wrestlers had expectations of their own. The Indians won 11 of 14 bouts -- including three "surprising" second-period pins to open the match -- as they rolled past Chambersburg 53-14 for their first win of the season. "I wasn't expecting to get pins in those bouts," Mowen said. "I was expecting wins. " Not that he was disappointed.

The bridge at the intersection of Mount Tabor Road and Rush Run Road has reopened after being closed since late August. The bridge was closed after a chance inspection revealed that the steel beams supporting the deck had been corroded, according to the county's website, www.washco-md.net . The steel beams and deck of the bridge, west of Hagerstown in the Broadfording area, had to be replaced. According to a published report in September, closing the bridge potentially saved lives, as it was not scheduled for inspection until 2012.

The City of Hagerstown has changed its procedures for its two downtown parking decks -- on North Potomac Street and in the Arts and Entertainment District. Starting this week, gate arms will no longer be raised from 7 p.m. to 6 a.m. and on weekends. Parking will remain free during those times. In a memo, Eric B. Deike, the city's manager of public works, wrote that raising the gate arms negates the pass systems, which require motorists to swipe in when they enter, then swipe out when they exit.

A broken fire hydrant and an issue with a pumper truck's engine throttle were discovered during a Hagerstown Fire Department training exercise Sunday morning at the North Potomac Street Parking Deck, fire officials said. Other than those issues, the training went well, Battalion Chief Russ Grimm said. A fire hydrant on North Potomac Street, in front of The Gourmet Goat and Senior Notes, was struck by a vehicle at some point, Fire Marshal Doug DeHaven said. When pushed, the hydrant tipped, and if a hose were to be hooked up to it, the water would come out near the flange, or rim around the bottom, he said.
