After two frustrating losses at the hands of Gettysburg and Boiling Springs in the past week, the Greencastle-Antrim Blue Devils girls team finally jelled together, rebounding against Shippensburg for a 59-44 Mid-Penn Colonial victory behind Chloe Hoover's 27 points and 12 rebounds. Hoover, coming off of a disappointing four-point performance in a 35-32 loss against Boiling Springs on Wednesday, erupted against an overmatched Greyhounds squad. The junior forward capitalized on excellent interior passes and great point play from freshman Hannah Crist to cement herself as the game's top player.

A Greyhound bus stop on Dual Highway near Hagerstown ceased operations last week after a Washington County zoning board in January denied a special exception allowing the operation, a bus company official said Thursday. The bus stop was operated by Hub City Shippers, which had served as the ticket agent since December 2010. Hub City Shippers moved from a previous location on Dual Highway to Foxshire Plaza at 1423 Dual Highway, just outside of Hagerstown, in November 2011. “We're very interested in the possibility of operating in the area, but from what we've been told, there's no zoning currently where we're at,” Greyhound spokesman Timothy Stokes said.

The Washington County Board of Zoning Appeals has denied a special exception that would have enabled a Greyhound bus stop to continue operating at Foxshire Plaza Shopping Center at 1432 Dual Highway outside of Hagerstown. The zoning appeals board decision followed a Jan. 4 public hearing, during which residents living in the Foxshire Plaza area spoke out against the station being allowed to operate at the current location. Nearby residents testified at the public hearing and employees of stores in the plaza, interviewed by The Herald-Mail, described incidents of late-night loitering, littering, theft, drinking in the parking lot, and pubic urination and defecation involving riders using the Greyhound bus stop.
