Recently, President Bush participated in a new kind of campaign event - a private baseball game in the park just a stone's throw from the U.S. Army War College in Carlisle, Pa. Anyone interested in asking the president any questions was not allowed. Baseball and family picnics are about as American as motherhood, apple pie and a walk in the park. In short, they are all about family values. But this administration is about anything but family values. If it was about family values, it would have introduced and passed tax cuts that targeted the poor and middle class and not the wealthy.

'Family values' weren't shown to this 'waver' To the editor: Now that the election is over, I would like to address a disturbing issue. I was a Kerry supporter who chose to exercise my First Amendment right by "waving" - holding a pro-Kerry sign at a busy intersection, while smiling and waving to drivers passing by. I must say that I was appalled by the Bush supporters (with "family values"?) who drove past this 54-year-old mom, yelling obscenities while giving "the finger"!

Once again, I am writing to let your reading public know of the huge threat that Congress is creating for seniors. I speak of massive cuts and changes to the Medicaid program in the pending "Omnibus Reconciliation Deficit Reduction Act," which is currently subject to vote by Congress. The proposed law will impose penalties on seniors who give money to their children, grandchildren, charities or pay for college or medical expenses for their family. The new rules will also increase the period of Medicaid ineligibility to five years instead of the current three years.

'You get to go places' Ashley Magee got more than a grown-up playmate when she asked Virginia Coleman to be her Big Sister. "It's kind of like she's my sister and my mom rolled into one," says Ashley, 17, of Hagerstown. Because she moved a lot, "I didn't really know what it was like to be close to someone," Ashley says. The two met when Ashley was in Coleman's third-grade class at Winter Street Elementary School in Hagerstown. Ashley was living with her grandmother when they received a flier about the Big Brothers Big Sisters program.

“On Feb. 10, Herald-Mail pictured 27 local legislators. Only one of these was a lady. It is still a man's world, isn't it?” - Hagerstown “Thank you for keeping the daily horoscope. Although I don't believe in it, I love to read it. It gives me the laugh for the day.” - Clear Spring “It's regarding the national news coverage of Shippensburg University's, public university's, nice little new slot machines. I wonder how many parents are sitting there, who have stressed family values, as the daughters and sons come home for the weekend saying oh, yeah, mom and dad, we still live your family values.

In 2009, I wrote a column titled “Should we be afraid of the dark?” It was a story about a doctor's dilemma in keeping patients alive, after the quality of life is gone, only for them to suffer more. A few days after I wrote this column, I received a call one morning from a Frances Cruger, who told me she enjoyed my column and shared a story with me of how her daughter, Leslie, had suffered with breast cancer for three years and had died in 2003. It was a story of a mother's deep love for her daughter.

If you're looking for the perfect holiday gift for a senior citizen, Mary Jane Henson has a suggestion. But you won't find it on a store shelf or in a catalog. They don't need another knickknack or bauble, she said. "What they need is the gift of time - time spent with family and friends. " As a volunteer at Potomac Towers in Hagerstown, Henson interacts with older residents on a daily basis, helping out with craft projects, coffee and conversation and meetings of the Red Hat Society.

wandaw@herald-mail.com HAGERSTOWN - Life hasn't always been easy for 17-year-old Tyrell Wilson. He was born into a high-crime neighborhood in Bridgeport, Conn., and his mother, Kimberly Wilson, said she battled poverty and homelessness to raise her son. "It was a struggle to put food on the table at times," said Kimberly Wilson, who moved with Tyrell and his younger brother to Hagerstown about six years ago, in search of a better life. The North Hagerstown High School junior basketball player and honor student spent his early years in an environment that could have altered the path of his life.
