Iraq can't be compared to Vietnam; it's worse To the editor: Columnist Lloyd Waters used the Vietnam War as an example to explain his opposition to continuing the Iraq War. There are big differences between the two wars, none of which Waters mentioned. America was in Vietnam to contain communism, an extension of the Truman Doctrine. There may have been a secret plan to establish a permanent military presence on China's doorstep as well. In other words, the war had a clear and rational purpose.

WAYNESBORO, Pa. - With layers of red sauce and white cheese, the steaming slices of lasagna easily resembled the American flag printed on napkins beside the plates. They also coordinated colors well with the "I Voted" stickers on the shirts and jackets of Tuesday evening's diners at St. Mary's Episcopal Church. "Our slogan is 'Go vote, come eat,'" head cook Liz George said. The Waynesboro church at 112 E. Second St. has been serving lasagna dinners on election night for more than 10 years.

CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - Election night in Franklin County, Pa., was anticlimactic for a number of candidates who went into Tuesday evening unopposed. Dave Secor, 55, of Chambersburg, a financial consultant with M&T Bank, received 16,183 votes in his run for Franklin County Treasurer, according to complete but unofficial results. Secor defeated Treasurer Chris Bender and one other candidate in the May Republican primary and won the democratic nomination as a write-in. The treasurer is in charge of certain county investments as well as the issuance of hunting, dog, small games of chance and other licenses.

Now that the Hagerstown election is complete and the current administration has made its last motions, I would like to pause and thank everyone from voters to friends and family who believed in me enough to allow me to continue to serve the citizens of our city. It has been an honor to represent the city for the past four years and an even greater honor when the public recognizes the integrity of that representation. There are several points that I made on election night that I also made throughout the campaign process, both in public setting and editorials, which I feel deserve clarification, but certainly not retraction.

tammyb@herald-mail.com Barbara Mikulski easily held off a challenge by state Sen. E.J. Pipkin to win a fourth term in the U.S. Senate. With 91 percent of Maryland's precincts reporting, Mikulski led with 64 percent of the vote to 34 percent for Pipkin. Her Republican challenger had hoped to repeat his upset defeat of an established Democrat. Pipkin, who resides in Queen Anne's County, snatched his Eastern Shore Senate seat from longtime Sen. Walter Baker in 2002.

The newsroom is a very quiet, subdued place early in the evening of an election. For several hours after the polls close, there isn't much reporters and editors can do on those stories and pages dealing with election coverage. We have to wait for the all-important numbers. But when those numbers come the tempo picks up dramatically, and for three hours or so before deadline arrives the newsroom is in full swing. Reporters come in from the election offices and start calling out results even as they sit down to finish stories.

Leadership changes unlikely in delegation Now that the election is over, the Washington County delegation to the Maryland General Assembly will soon reorganize. But don't expect to see any major changes in leadership. The delegation is likely to be headed either by current Chairman Robert A. McKee or Vice Chairman Christopher B. Shank, both Republicans who easily won re-election. Del. John P. Donoghue, D-Washington, who used to have the job, said he isn't interested because of the large workload he expects to have on the Economic Matters Committee.

Well, my hand-picked county commissioner candidates didn't do so well last week. I was rooting for the all Double L ticket, that being Wivell, Phillips, Russell, Trujillo and Miller. Their campaign signs, of course, would have been yeLLow. By the way, nice performance turned in on election night by Del. Joe Bartlett's mommy. According to a local newspaper account, she threw a fit because her boy's name was left off a Republican campaign sign. An eyewitness told the paper she ripped down a sign and stomped on it. Look, we expect that kind of behavior at a Little League game, but not in politics.

martinsburg@herald-mail.com MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - Unofficially, Republican candidate Steve Teufel won his party's nomination during the primary election for Berkeley County Commission against James L. Edwards by a mere six votes. Officially, county election officials will canvass the votes Friday to get a better look at the final total. If the canvassing doesn't resolve the issue, a recount is possible. "I haven't given it (a recount) much thought," said Edwards, 70, of 627 Hammond Mill Road, Hedgesville, W.Va.
