Editor's note: Each Sunday, The Herald-Mail publishes "A Life Remembered. " This continuing series takes a look back -- through the eyes of family, friends, co-workers and others -- at a member of the community who died recently. Today's "A Life Remembered" is about Richard C. "Dick" Shain, who died July 23 at the age of 63. His obituary was published July 29 in The Herald-Mail. In the 1960s, "Sears has everything" was a popular commercial catch phrase. It seems Sears had just what Dick Shain was looking for -- he found his future wife, Mary Willson, working at the Sears switchboard when he was selling carpet for the chain store at night.

marlob@herald-mail.com HAGERSTOWN - A typical night on duty with the College of Charleston (S.C.) first responder team last November turned out to be anything but routine for Hagerstown resident Bradford Bettencourt. Then just 19, Bettencourt - a certified emergency medical technician - was called upon to use his training to bring a man back to life during a tense medical emergency. "I remember I showed up for duty about 15 minutes early on Nov. 6 and was going through some supplies when I heard a noise," Bettencourt said.

"The one thing we emphasize a lot is there is no routine call," said Ed Smith, chief of Independent Fire Co. in Jefferson County, W.Va. Such was the case during the 30th annual West Virginia EMS/Firefighter competition in Jefferson County over the weekend.

tarar@herald-mail.com Washington County and the local Volunteer Fire and Rescue Association missed a state deadline for submitting a training plan, and as a result, the association won't be able to offer advanced training courses this year, County Director of Emergency Services Joe Kroboth said Monday. But a state official said that wasn't the case. Kroboth said that because the deadline was missed, emergency medical technicians (EMTs) hoping to upgrade their skills might have to wait another 12 months for the training or take courses that might cost the county and the association thousands more than what it now costs.
