HAGERSTOWN -- The Hagerstown City Council heard a proposal Tuesday from the Hagerstown-Washington County Chamber of Commerce to begin examining the feasibility of a third parking deck downtown. There are two downtown parking decks, in the first blocks of North and South Potomac streets. An informal survey of downtown businesses in the area indicated a demand for 842 spaces, said Shelby Penn of the Chamber's Downtown Task Force. The Columbia Bank, Hagerstown Trust Division, is willing to negotiate with the city to develop the parking lot behind its West Washington Street branch, according to documents provided by Penn.

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.

HAGERSTOWN -- Anna Doleman planned to overcome a case of nerves with prayer Sunday before stepping out in a benefit fashion show. The Hagerstown woman pulled a spaghetti-strapped dress and gray A-line skirt out of her closet for the event benefiting the Martin Luther King Jr. scholarship fund. She surveyed the room Sunday prior to the accompanying banquet and offered an assessment on the scholarships, which have benefited Washington County students for 23 years. "I think it's for a good cause because it brings the community back together," Doleman said.

Colt League president asks for loan for lights The president of the Hagerstown Colt League on Tuesday asked the City Council to help fund a proposal to replace the light poles and fixtures at Hellane Park on the city's west end. The old poles and fixtures were removed last summer because they had deteriorated, city documents show. Estimates to replace the fixtures and poles range from $147,500 to $195,000. Colt League President Doug Stottlemyer asked whether the city would loan a portion of the money, but he said he didn't know how long it would take to pay it back.

CHEWSVILLE - Peering through the windows of the Chewsville Post Office this December is like stepping back in time. From the two mannequins in their holiday finery to the lighted Christmas tree and wreath, a stop at the post office seems a bit like visiting a department store in days past. The friendly service, occasional holiday treat and stamps prewrapped for gift-giving match the feel of an old-time store, where customers were greeted by name and customer service was a priority.

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.
