marlob@herald-mail.com With the needs of the less fortunate at an all-time high, Maj. Butch Mallard of the Salvation Army in Hagerstown headed into the 2003 Christmas fund-drive season with some trepidation. But with the final figures in, Mallard saw how well the people of Washington County responded to those needs, both in the kettle drive and mail campaign. "Our kettle drive took in $91,593 this year, which is 14 percent over our goal of $80,000," Mallard said Tuesday.

andrews@herald-mail.com Every year, when volunteer fire and rescue companies ask the public for money, residents are more likely to respond than businesses. A rough approximation is that 25 to 40 percent of homes contribute and less than 10 percent of businesses, said Jason Baer, president of the Washington County Volunteer Fire & Rescue Association. Baer said the Maugansville Goodwill Fire Co., of which he is a member, gets a slightly better response from businesses - 15 to 20 percent.

julieg@herald-mail.com In fund-raising, as in performing, a successful orchestra requires everyone to work in concert. The Maryland Symphony Orchestra has fared well in recent years despite a slow economy that has forced some orchestras to shut down. A decline in donations from small businesses over the last two years was made up by an increase in individual donations, MSO Executive Director Jean P. Hamilton said. The symphony had more than 70 new individual donors in the last fund drive, she said.

Let the hospital move To the editor: Does the Mayor of Hagerstown have nothing better to do than waste the taxpayers' money by hiring attorneys to keep the hospital from moving? Doesn't he see the benefits of having a new hospital on a beautiful site at Robinwood? Moving the hospital to Robinwood will not eliminate 2,000 "city" jobs. It will, however, help our local economy. The jobs will still be at the hospital. I don't recall ever being paid by the city when I worked at the hospital.
