waynesboro@herald-mail.com MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - Eugene Roman held out his hands Tuesday morning as U.S. Rep. Shelley Moore Capito handed him medal after medal, all earned by Roman 52 years ago when he served in the Korean War. Roman, 72, who lives in Shepherdstown, W.Va., was a forward observer in an artillery unit in Korea. He said he knew he was entitled to the medals when he was discharged from the Army in September 1952, but he never received them. Capito said Roman's daughter, Sheila Hamilton, who represents the Eastern Panhandle on the West Virginia Board of Education, contacted her in July about getting her father's belated medals.

The estimated cost in Washington County to achieve the federal government's targeted reduction of nitrogen going to Chesapeake Bay via septic systems in Washington County is $230.2 million, an amount that primarily homeowners would be responsible for paying, said Julie Pippel, director for the county's Division of Environmental Management. Homeowners who rely on septic systems could face costs up to $67,390 to comply with the plan by connecting to a public sewer system. There are up to three possible options for septic system owners to comply with efforts to reduce nitrogen discharge, two of which homeowners could pursue voluntarily now, but mandatory measures are coming, said David Barnhart, director of environmental health for the Washington County Health Department.

HAGERSTOWN -- The Canadian company that owns the defunct paper plant at Eastern and Memorial boulevards in Hagerstown has asked the state to renew its water discharge permit. Cascades Tissue Group Maryland LLC, however, has no plans to reopen the plant, said Hubert Bolduc, the vice president of communications and public affairs for Cascades, which is based in Quebec. Bolduc said the company wants the permit to be current in case its plans change. It's typical for a company with a wastewater discharge permit to renew it when it expires, said Edward Gertler, a technical advisor in the Industrial Discharge Permit Division of the Maryland Department of the Environment's Water Management Administration.
