Having reached age 84, Leatrice Shoemaker figured it was time she did something she always wanted to do. Her chance came Friday evening, when she climbed into a basket below a 250,000-cubic-foot hot-air balloon and drifted away from the earth's boundless gravity. The basket she was in was the largest of about a dozen that were lifted off the ground Friday at the Green Grove Gardens Hot Air Balloon Festival 2012. The event continues through Sunday. Helicopter rides are being offered today.

I recently wrote a column about getting along, but it will have to wait until next week. The theme of that column has to do with political factions getting along for the betterment of people as a whole.  But after our esteemed president, his administration and his staff spent time in “la la land,” I just don't have getting along in my heart for today's column. Two weeks ago the Obama administration gutted the Welfare Reform Act of 1996 (President Bill Clinton signed the law) by abolishing reasonable standards that define work.

A Washington County District Court judge on Thursday nearly tripled the bond amount for a man charged a day earlier with using a handgun to rob Wayne's Country Store in Hagerstown. During a bail-review hearing conducted via closed-circuit TV from the Washington County Detention Center, Judge Mark D. Thomas increased the bond for Corey Anthony Dunbar, 42, of 1653 Langley Drive in Hagerstown, from $250,000 to $700,000. Police said Wednesday they believed Dunbar was a resident of Prince George's County, Md. Washington County Assistant State's Attorney Mark Boyer asked Thomas during the hearing to increase the bond amount because Dunbar was facing a significant amount of prison time and had a previous escape charge in Montgomery County, Md. Dunbar was charged with one count each of armed robbery, first-degree assault, second-degree assault, firearm use in a violent crime, firearm possession with a felony conviction, robbery, reckless endangerment and theft of less that $100, according to the charging summary.
