marlob@herald-mail.com Even after years of keeping the Potomac Towers flower garden at peak glory, Jane White said she has never thought of it as hers. Sharing the beauty of nature with others was one of her main goals. That changed Wednesday morning during a brief dedication ceremony held between the raindrops. The flower beds outside the main entrance of the senior living center on Baltimore Street were officially named "The Jane White Garden" and adorned with a plaque and an angel statue.

HAGERSTOWN - Sometimes they wavered, wobbled or fell, but for the most part, those who took part in Winterfest skated their way to thunderous applause and a few moments of glory on the ice. The annual event at the Hagerstown Ice & Sports Complex featured solo and group performances, with those on the ice skating to Christmas music. Christine Godfray, 20, had a large smile during her entire routine, when her braids trailed behind her as she carved out the ice. Afterward, as Godfray donned a jacket, she said she has been skating for about 15 years.

The crowd was silent for the time it took Old Glory to rise up the sky-scraping flagpole Friday in Hagerstown's University Plaza, where a celebration of Flag Day was held. Detailing the history of the holiday, which serves to commemorate the adoption of the American flag, city Mayor David S. Gysberts spoke before an assemblage of about 40 people. “Wherever our American journey has taken us, whether on that unending path to the mountain top or high above into the reaches of space, Old Glory has followed, reminding us of the rights and responsibilities we share as citizens,” Gysberts said, reading a proclamation from President Obama.

This is the 188th in a series of articles about the historical and architectural treasures of Washington County. Near Smithsburg is a short road, once called Georgetown Road, that was recently renamed Federal Lookout Road to honor the Union's effort to keep track of J.E.B. Stuart as he protected Lee's retreat from Gettysburg, Pa. Federal Lookout Road crosses Crystal Falls Drive and heads up South Mountain. Homes along it are scattered. A small subdivision stands to the north.

White stars set upon a field of blue, representing a new constellation in the night sky, lie near 13 stripes of red and white. On days of peace and joy, it flies high in the sky. In times of grief and loss, it is lowered to half-staff out of  respect for the fallen. And whether it is called Old Glory, the Stars and Stripes or the Star-Spangled Banner, each June 14, Americans honor their flag. The city of Hagerstown held its annual Flag Day celebration Tuesday at University Plaza.

That goal came to fruition this season, as Smithsburg (19-0) completed its first undefeated state-championship season since 2001.

By Al Allenback When the phone rings at four forty-five in the morning, it's usually not good news. And that's why it is that this morning's wake up call from my daughter is especially difficult, because it brought news that I knew would be coming, that an old friend, mentor, and member of the Greatest Generation has fallen. Don Currier, lieutenant colonel, USAF, Retired, veteran of World War II, Korea, and the Cold War, a businessman, author and teacher, who was known to many of you through his frequent columns on everything from public policy to economics in this paper for the last 40 years, has passed on. I met Don in the summer of 1968, amid the swirling politics of that time because I was dating his daughter.

The two great Saturday Evening Post illustrators looked at each moment, before preceding to crawl under the table.

" She looks at me like I just told her that I was going to get a new Lexus for $20 a month. "We haven't seen each other in 20 years, even longer for some of us," as my sales pitch continues.

BOONSBORO - Back in the 1950s, when Trinity Lutheran Church was undergoing a major renovation, eight stained-glass windows were headed for the dump. "John H. Bast Sr. was there and said he'd store them," said Karen Cunningham, a member of the church at 64 S. Main St. "He saved all those wonderful windows. " Replaced by plain frosted-glass windows, most of the stained-glass windows stayed in storage with the Bast, now deceased, until the 1970s, when they were reinstalled at the church.
