Trish Suder has a painting in the Mansion House Art Gallery of a Confederate soldier during the Civil War giving water to an injured Union soldier. It is entitled “He's My Brother.” “In the Civil War, brothers fought brothers,” she said. “Just learning about what the Civil War was about, with the blood and the gore, was very intriguing.” Suder, 68, of Hagerstown, is a member of the Valley Art Association, which has been displaying an exhibit of Civil War paintings since the beginning of September.

A new antiques and gift shop officially opened Tuesday in downtown Hagerstown. Chateau La Wren Antiques and Gifts, which opened July 2 at 20 Public Square, held a grand opening and ribbon-cutting ceremony attended by city officials, including Mayor Robert E. Bruchey II. “There's a lot of vacant buildings in downtown Hagerstown, and I think antique stores and other businesses can change that and make it thrive,” said Patrick Burke, co-owner...

Christina Hammer-Atkins remembers school often being boring. So as a teacher, she strives to have engaging and exciting lessons for her students. “I teach for a variety of reasons. One is I hated school as a kid. That's something that a lot of people don't know. I just came from a pretty underprivileged family, and I never want a child to feel the way that I felt when I was growing up and going to school,” said Hammer-Atkins, who learned last week she is a state finalist for 2012-13 Maryland Teacher of the Year.

On the street, in front of the bluesy rock band, a young, barefoot hippie danced a rhythmic flail beside a middle-aged guy with a Washington Redskins jersey and a decidedly more sedated groove. Both were, by all appearances, lost in the music and vibe of Shepherdstown Street Fest. Herb peddlers, potters, jewelry designers, environmental groups and more lined two blocks of German Street, embodying the college town's bookish bohemian feel. Jason Smith, 37, of Martinsburg, W.Va., stood watching a musical performance by Moondog Medicine Show with his friend, Shannon Smiles, 31, also of Martinsburg.

Hagerstown resident Ed Reed was vocal Thursday about his support for the U.S. Supreme Court's decision to uphold most of President Obama's historic health care law. “It's a good law, and more people will be insured,” he said. “Somebody had to do something.” Reed, 70, was among area residents who offered their reactions   to the high court's ruling that also validated the constitutionality of a controversial individual mandate requiring people to have health insurance.

Some people camp out all night in parking lots for concert tickets or Black Friday sales. For others, all-nighters are less about amusement and more about essentials. Some are just trying to keep their teeth. Eager patients camped out Friday night to secure a spot in the dentist's chair Saturday at Hagerstown Smiles Dental Care's Dentistry from the Heart event. Roughly 65 volunteers - dentists, oral surgeons and dental hygienists among them - offered free dental services to adults on a first-come, first-served basis between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. at the practice on Mt. Aetna Road.

You know that fruits, vegetables, whole grains are good for you, but some foods have been shown to be standouts for lowering problems linked to aging. You might want to include more of these on your shopping list:  "Brainberries": That's the nickname Dr. Barbara Shukitt-Hale and coauthor James A. Joseph, PhD, gave to blueberries and their cousins - such as blackberries, cranberries and strawberries. Berry fruits are rich in antioxidant polyphenolic compounds that protect against the age-related decline of cognitive and motor functions.

Hagerstown resident Jorge Zambrana has to be at work between 6 a.m. and 8 a.m. every Monday morning, so when the Pittsburgh Steelers played in the Super Bowl last year, he had to accept that he would be tired going to work the next day. “I was happy to be able to watch the game, but I had to stay up late and get up early the next day,” he said one day last week. “I know a lot of people that would want to take the day off if their team was in the Super Bowl.” Zambrana, 36, who is a driver for FedEx, said that he would like to see the Super Bowl moved to Saturday.

Mark Sands of Hagerstown expressed his unhappiness Monday at the way residents in rural communities in Maryland are treated by elected officials. “Rural people get the short end of the stick throughout the state,” he said. “Even with a gasoline tax, rural people have to pay more because they have to drive further into work. Then, the money is disbursed back into the cities.” Sands, 50, was among Hagerstown residents who said elected officials in Maryland tend to put the needs of rural areas in Maryland, particularly Western Maryland, behind the needs of the rest of the state.

In the continuation of our breakfast quest using a 12-inch, cast-iron skillet, I combined a recipe I found online with a few ingredients from our well-stocked frugal pantry and fridge.  I've incorporated some red skin potatoes and some chopped scallions with some rainbow Swiss chard for a beautiful color and brightness of flavor. If you want to add in some meat, please feel free to experiment. As I see it, the dish is complete and looks great as is, but, again, I too love to change recipes and this one is ripe for the picking.  As is, it's a great lacto-ovo vegetarian dish but with a few diced and sliced ham or spicy pepperoni you have a meat lovers' paradise.
