HAGERSTOWN -- The Maryland Theatre's roof is being replaced because of damage possibly connected to vandalism last year. Ron Bowers, a member of the nonprofit theater's board and chairman of its building committee, said graffiti was made on the theater's roof in April 2008. This year, as heavy rain caused water to soak through to the ceiling inside, it looked as if the damage was tied to last year's vandalism, Bowers said. Bowers said the theater's insurance is covering the damage, estimated at more than $16,000.
