Therapist says the perfect gift could be a touch Spending a lot of money isn't the key to pleasing every partner for Valentine's Day, according to relationship therapist and author Robert Abel. That's because people express love in different ways, said Abel, director of a marriage and family counseling practice in Denver and author of "The Relationship Toolbox. " Gender conditioning and the way your family members expressed love while you were growing up have a lot to do with how you're inclined to show your loved ones how you feel and how you'd like them to show you, Abel said.
by ANDREA ROWLAND | July 18, 2003 "Les Miserables" author Victor Hugo wrote, "Life's greatest happiness is to be convinced we are loved. " And the best way to express affection is to show it, parenting and marital experts say. Today's busy couples and families must make showing affection for each other a priority, says Paul Mauchline, managing director of The Art of Loving Institute. The Costa Rica-based organization offers advice about love and relationships, and hosts workshops to promote the importance of love, according to The Art of Loving Web site at www.artofloving.

SHEPHERDSTOWN, W.Va. - As they filed in for their graduation ceremony Saturday, some members of Musselman High School's class of 2004 had grins splayed across their faces. Others bore unreadable expressions, while one young woman wiped away tears as she smiled. Their facial expressions seemed to testify to their mixed emotions: excitement over leaving high school, trepidation about the future and sadness over the likelihood of never seeing some classmates and friends again. Before commencement began for the school's 226 graduates, they gathered in classrooms at Shepherd University's Butcher Athletic Center and readied for the ceremony.

I grind painfully as I listen to persons who are in their own corner of religion, so to speak, persons who claim from their own faith summit that their view is better than another's. The truth is, faith's many paths proceed toward the same summit.  The reknowned Christian scholar in world religions, Huston Smith, writes: “To claim salvation as the monopoly of any one religion is like claiming that God can be found in this room but not the next, in this attire but not another.”    Truth is one, not many.

The idea of a company that works for the owner of the old Municipal Electric Light Plant being involved in the cleanup of PCB-laden water from the basement of that building reached the tipping point for Chris Klein on Monday evening. Klein, who owns property along Antietam Creek, where treated wastewater from the old electric plant along Eastern Boulevard would be dumped, expressed frustration during a Maryland Department of the Environment meeting in Hagerstown. He said Triad Engineering working on the cleanup is basically “the fox guarding the henhouse.” Klein told MDE officials they need to take a more active role in overseeing how the water is treated.

Several people showed up at a Boonsboro Town Council meeting Monday night to express concerns about the use of “smart meters” to measure electric use in buildings. One of the people who spoke, Mary Schanno, said smart meters emit microwave radiation and is worried that their use is associated with health complications like insomnia and migraine headaches. Although Schanno said she fears the meters are being used throughout the county, a Potomac Edison official said last week that the local provider is not installing smart meters in its Western Maryland service area.

A Hagerstown man charged with robbing the Brothers Pizza Express on Dual Highway at gunpoint in March could face 10 years in state prison after entering an Alford plea Thursday in Washington County Circuit Court. Timothy Blaine Ennis, 30, of 2052 Day Road entered the plea to charges of armed robbery and use of a firearm in a crime of violence before Judge M. Kenneth Long Jr. Although not an admission of guilt, an Alford plea is an acknowledgment by a defendant that the prosecution has sufficient evidence to gain a conviction.

Panhandling is something that just about every city police department across the nation deals with on a regular basis, Hagerstown Police Lt. Paul Kifer said. “It's everywhere,” Kifer said Monday. “No matter where you go, especially in a city environment.” And the Hub City is not immune. Simply asking for money or cigarettes from people walking the streets is not illegal, according to Kifer. However, “aggressive panhandling” - in which people continue begging after they have been told to stop - is a reportable and enforceable offense, he said.

Apryll Walker wanted to be mom. Her husband, Brett, wanted to be an inventor. But they both shared a love of music that they couldn't ignore and now it's a family passion. For about a half-dozen years, the Walkers and their seven children have been traveling the United States, keeping hands clapping and toes tapping to the sounds of country, bluegrass and old-time mountain music. It wasn't the kind of life the couple pictured for themselves when they married and began a life together in Alaska.

Several people connected with Hagerstown's used car business appeared before Mayor David S. Gysberts and Hagerstown City Council members Tuesday night to raise concerns about recent changes to land use regulations in the city that affect used car lots. The land use change determined that any used car lots in the city less than 40,000 square feet in size will be non-conforming, said Bill Feuerstein, who operates Salem Avenue Auto Exchange and Repair. Although a used car lot smaller than 40,000 square-feet in size can continue to operate under certain circumstances, the speakers said they are concerned how it will affect used car businesses in town.

A planned $300 million downtown redevelopment project in Glassboro, N.J., currently being completed by Sora Development, a real estate development firm that's expressed interest in doing something similar in Hagerstown, has been well-received, an education official there said last week. “We give a lot of credit to Sora,” said Joe Cordona, vice president of university relations for Rowan University, which is involved in the Glassboro project. “People looking at Sora should take them very seriously.” The Rowan Boulevard revitalization project, a public-private partnership between Sora, the borough of Glassboro and Rowan University, contains several multistory mixed-use buildings, student-housing complexes and parking garages on 26 acres along a new one-third-mile corridor that connects Rowan and the heart of Glassboro's historic business district.
