But wherever she picked it up, she saved the day, first by standing on a chair to open two complicated locks on the front door, then running to a neighbor and telling her "my mom had a seizure. " Help was summoned and Lori Socks got the treatment she needed, first from Community Rescue Service and then at Washington County Hospital where she was diagnosed with an anxiety attack and sent home.

HAGERSTOWN - LaFarge North America has proposed opening a ready-mixed concrete plant in an industrial zone on Florida Avenue near Western Heights Middle School. Neighbors and Washington County Board of Education officials lobbied against the plan at a hearing Wednesday before the Hagerstown Board of Zoning Appeals. The meeting ended too late for the board to decide on LaFarge's request to allow the plant as a special exception in the zone. The board is likely to call a meeting in the next few weeks to rule on that case and several others it discussed Wednesday.

HAGERSTOWN -- Paula Piper is a study in motion behind the bar at Woodpoint Grill, where she's worked almost half of her life.

Piper said as a steady customer took his seat. Piper, 66, started working in January 1976 for owner Ned South, who bought the business in 1955. After his death, his two sons, Doug and Keith South, took over the business.
