The Edward P. Thomas swimming pool on Flemming Avenue was immediately closed Thursday after broken glass was found in it, the Frederick Police Department said. It is unclear if the broken glass was a deliberate act or if it was accidental, a news release said. The pool will be closed for the weekend while it is cleaned and drained, according to police, who responded to the pool at 8:50 a.m. The pool will be closed as the region endures a heat wave with temperatures expected to be in the 90s.

He might not be a household name in Hagerstown yet, but Yemi is hoping to become one after the unveiling of his collection of four handcrafted glass ornaments that feature Hagerstown scenes. Born and raised in Nigeria, Yemi came to the United States in 1983 at age 18 to study art at the Pratt Institute in New York. "I wanted to develop my art to a higher level than I could in Nigeria," said Yemi, 49, who chose to stay in the U.S. He quickly found that few Americans could pronounce his last name, Fagbohun, so he chose to use only his first name.

By MARLO BARNHART Staff Writer Wishing to create a "jail without bars," Japanese prison reformers toured the Roxbury Correctional Institution south of Hagerstown Wednesday to check out its walls of glass. The delegation of five and an interpreter visited Housing Unit 4, where special laminated glass has replaced some bars. The strength of the glass, with a core of polycarbonate wrapped in glass, is said to resist blunt impact and bullets. "Our emphasis is on human rights in our jails and prisons," said Hiromi Nakaoji, who interpreted for the group, which included Yakunori Takahashi, Japan's director of technical development and engineering.

Ninety seconds to two minutes. That's how long Michael A. Fisher has to shape molten glass at 2,000 degrees on the end of a pipe. He has to reheat it to continue to shape it into a sculpture or functional glassware. If he's making a small piece such as a ornament ball he might go through this process once or twice. For bigger works, he might reheat the glass dozens of times before the piece is complete. Fisher, 29, has been a glass artist for almost 12 years, selling his work mostly at wholesale shows in the past so galleries in New York City, Boston, Chicago, Houston, Orlando, Fla., and Scottsdale, Ariz.

The Mountain Man is gone. After more than 40 years, the image of a West Virginia blacksmith hammering on an anvil that graced the sign promoting the Mountain Heritage Arts & Crafts Festival has been replaced by a new image showing an impressionistic mountain range. ”We wanted to update things a little bit, get a new look,” said Heather Morgan McIntyre, executive director of the Jefferson County Chamber of Commerce which has been sponsoring the festival for 41 years. The event attracts about 7,000 patrons to a large vacant field near Harpers Ferry every June and September, McIntyre said.

I'm having a problem with my glasses. You might guess that my problem involves the prescription being too weak or too strong. Or, perhaps you think the nose piece is loose and needs to be adjusted. At my age, "Is it time for bifocals?" might be a good question. But all those guesses would be wrong. In the first place, my glasses did not require a prescription. I bought them over-the-counter at a drug store. The nose pieces I've had fit pretty well. (I usually don't have a pair long enough to loosen them.)

At the age of 4, Alex announced that she wanted to hold a lemonade stand to raise money to help find a cure for all children with cancer.
