WAYNESBORO, Pa. - Milton Garland, who was honored two years ago as the nation's oldest worker, was recently hospitalized with a heart condition and was listed in fair condition Monday at Waynesboro Hospital, a spokeswoman said. Garland, who turns 105 in August, was hospitalized more than two weeks ago. His condition was upgraded from critical to fair late last week, the spokeswomen said. His last public appearance was in the Waynesboro Memorial Day parade. In March 1998, Garland was named America's oldest worker by Greenthumb, a national nonprofit, senior advocacy group that focuses on training and finding jobs for low-income, older workers.

HAGERSTOWN - Two brothers charged with second-degree murder in the April death of their father, who died as a result of what investigators alleged was neglect, were scheduled to appear Thursday morning in Washington County Circuit Court. Kenneth Allen Record, 62, and Gerald Wolford Record, 46, did not appear for the arraignment, however, because attorneys have filed paperwork indicating the men are represented. A January 2008 trial date has been set for the case. The men were being held Thursday at the Washington County Detention Center, each on $750,000 bond, a jail spokeswoman said.
