Heavier snowfall and colder-than-normal temperatures are expected to hit the mid-Atlantic region this winter, according to J. Gruber's 2014 Hagers-Town Town and Country Almanack, which landed on newsstands Sept. 3.   The 218th edition of the almanac, which covers the 16-month period from September 2013 to December 2014, predicts the first snow in the region could fall from Nov. 4 to 6. But according to Jerry Spessard, business and sales manager for the almanac, the prediction indicates the southern mid-Atlantic region likely will experience only rainfall during those days.

Two officials involved with a proposed new “West City” elementary school in the Hager's Crossing housing development and one of its residents endorsed land-use modifications to make way for the structure at a public hearing Tuesday night before the Hagerstown City Council. The site for the proposed school in the development behind Walmart in Hagerstown's West End currently is zoned R2, or residential, with a Planned Unit Development overlay for mixed-density residential. An amendment must be made to the PUD overlay for the school to be built at the 16.52-acre site, a process involving Hagerstown Planning Commission review and approval by the council.
