CLEAR SPRING -- Dr. T.A. Pasha said the idea of opening a family practice office in Clear Spring came to him when he realized how many of the patients he was seeing at his Hagerstown office were from the Clear Spring area. "Many are older folks from the Clear Spring area and there is no doctor there," Pasha said. "Life will be easy for them. " The new office is in a house behind St. John's United Church of Christ at Cumberland Street and Md. 68. McDonald's is on the other side of the office.

pepperb@herald-mail.com Some children inherit their grandfather's engraved gold pocketwatch or their grandmother's recipe for pasta sauce. In the Ditto family, two sons have inherited the often grim job of following in the footsteps of death. Since the 1940s, three generations of Dittos have been on police call to determine the cause of death in Washington County unattended deaths, fatal accidents, suicides and homicides. In the 1980s, Dr. Allen W. Ditto was asked by his father, Dr. Edward W. Ditto III, to become the third man in his family to carry a deputy chief medical examiner's badge.

HANCOCK - Aspiring physician Frank Thomas' first contact with the town of Hancock was as a hitchhiker in the late 1940s, as he went back and forth between his home in Pennsylvania and Mount St. Mary's in Emmitsburg, Md., where he was in college. As he walked the sidewalks looking for a ride, Thomas said the townspeople would smile at him and seemed friendly - like residents of his own hometown of Meyersdale, Pa. Fate would bring him back to this small Washington County community in 1958 to start a family practice - a career that continued for 48 years until his retirement in June.
