"It's high time a traffic light was installed at the intersection of Stotler Road and Halfway Boulevard. We are told that the tractor-trailers coming up the hill cannot stop at a light because of a loss of momentum. Sheer baloney. The people exiting Lakeside Park are taking their lives in their hands every time they try to go east or west with trailer drivers too lazy to change gears. " - Hagerstown "I have mixed feelings about the speed cameras, but I have made up my mind I will try and pressure our elected officials into OK'ing use of speed cameras, especially in school areas.

Hagerstown Community College men's basketball coach Earl Redden got all the proof he needed of Fermin's convictions on Wednesday. "He told me before the season that he would not let us lose," Redden said. No hot air here. Fermin was true to his syllables when he used the final possession of the game to put up the winning layup as time expired to help the Hawks pull out an 81-79 victory over Frederick Community College at the HCC athletic complex.

The Borough of Chambersburg has given the green light to LEDs, taking on the rising cost of energy one bulb at a time. "We have gone through the process of converting almost all our traffic lights from incandescents to LEDs," Borough Council President William McLaughlin said. At this point, the borough has concentrated on replacing green and red lights while allowing amber bulbs to burn themselves out before being replaced, he said. The savings will be considerable, said Ron Pezon, the assistant superintendent of the borough's Electric Department.

WAYNESBORO, PA. - About 20,000 vehicles roll through Washington Township on Pa. 16 each day, making it increasingly difficult for those motorists trying to get across the road or make a left turn along the corridor. At one particularly busy intersection, that situation should improve next year after state Sen. Terry Punt, R-Franklin, announced Friday that the township will receive a $100,000 grant to install a traffic signal at the Oller Avenue intersection. "We opened our business here in 1984, and from that time, we've been telling them how much we need a light here," said Paul Gunder, an associate broker with Jack Gaughen Realtor ERA at 1814 E. Main St. "I'll be able to turn left and go home at the end of the day ... It's wonderful," said Magisterial District Judge Larry Pentz, whose office is on North Oller Avenue.
