MARTINSBURG, W.VA. Alayzia Brown was making her way to a popular spot in Martinsburg - the swimming pool at War Memorial Park - but whether the two pink Lil Bratz flotation devices her father was carrying for her would make their way on to her arms remained to be seen. "I don't like those and I'm not going to wear them," said 5-year-old Alayzia, more determined than stubborn. She and her father were among the thousands of people who converged on the park Tuesday for an array of events, with the finale being a fireworks display.

HAGERSTOWN-Rose Stevens paused in deep thought as she leaned against the trunk of a tall pine tree at Rose Hill Cemetery. As a soft breeze fluttered the small American flag she was holding, Stevens wondered about the soldiers buried a stone's throw away. Known as Washington Confederate Cemetery, it is the final resting place for more than 2,000 men who fought in the battles of Antietam, South Mountain, Gettysburg and Hagerstown. For the occasional student of the Civil War who ventures into this shaded section of Rose Hill, there are no headstones to conjure up images of those who are buried here.

“I'd like to respond to an article in Sunday's paper, Oct. 7, titled 'Halfway church responds to Chick-fil-A.' This is now still a free country, and free speech. Christians do not hate gays; it's their lifestyle. Also, not everyone that was at Chick-fil-A, and I know many, that were not professing Christians. They just were not ready for this lifestyle and the same-sex marriage. So Chick-fil-A had the right to stand to voice their opinion once again, when they say no to same-sex marriage.” - Hagerstown “I do not practice medicine in the state of Maryland.
