"When you make a mistake, admit it. If you don't, you only make matters worse. " At The Herald-Mail, we take the words of Ward Cleaver, aka the dad from "Leave It to Beaver," to heart. As much as we strive to put out an error-free product, mistakes, unfortunately, happen. The first thing that happens when we find out we might have made a mistake is simple: Let someone know about it. This is a credibility issue. The newspaper serves as a record of community events and we must correct any mistakes so the readers are correctly informed and the historical record is accurate.

HAGERSTOWN -- The American flag was described in many ways Friday. Children wave it in processions. It brings tears to the eyes of athletes. In war, it reminds soldiers why they fight, and for what. At funerals, it is the last tribute to veterans. While speakers talked about what the flag meant, an AMVETS Post 10 color/honor guard and Boy Scout Troop 2 held the American flag aloft for Friday afternoon's Flag Day ceremony at University Plaza on West Washington Street. "Our flag is saluted by soldiers and revered by citizens," said Fred Shinbur, chairman of the Maryland Veterans Commission.

WILLIAMSPORT -- It's been a silent witness to celebrations and tragedies, as well as everyday life. It hangs from front porches, pickup trucks and public buildings. But what happens when the American flag - a symbol of this nation's pride and freedom - becomes old, weathered and torn? It is honorably retired. A solemn ceremony to dispose of unserviceable American flags was held Saturday on the club grounds of Williamsport Red Men Tribe 84. The event was sponsored by the Red Men and the Potomac American Legion Post 202 Auxiliary.
