Playing games with transportation To the editor: In response to Maryland Transportation Secretary Robert Flanagan's letter of June 13, perhaps Flanagan needs to be honest and respectful. For a secretary of a major state department to behave in such an antagonistic manner toward the committee members who fund his budget is absolutely unbelievable. Flanagan again has stretched the truth. His claim that the governor faced a Transportation Trust Fund with barely enough money to pay for basic highway maintenance truly puzzles me. How would the governor be able to borrow $300 million from the trust fund to balance his first-year budget if there were no money?

"My husband and I were passing through this weekend and stopped at a family restaurant on the Dual Highway. My husband found a large amount of money. If you can tell me what restaurant and what day and how much it was, we will be glad to see that the owner gets it back. If no one can claim it, it will go to a local charity. Call Mail Call and leave your number. Thank you. " "Has anyone out there tried any of the new sprays they have out to relieve snoring? Snoring is a big problem at my house and I would like to know if they work or not. I would like to know if they are expensive and where can you get them?"

You're still here. I'm still here. The world as we know it did not end. The predictions were off, but the excuses abound. Now that May 21 has come and gone, why don't they take down their signs and admit that they were wrong? "They" are the followers of Harold Camping, a pastor in California who proclaimed that 200 million Christians were going to be taken to heaven last Saturday. Camping now says the mistake was a mathematical error. The real Judgment Day will occur on Oct. 21. His predictions were the cause of much discussion on our trek to school over the last few weeks.

When you are doing so well and choosing the right thing, there will be people who try to get you to do the wrong thing. But you know that you must always choose the right even if people don't like you. If you choose the right, there will be great rewards from your father in heaven. He knows that you are trying your best. It's not always easy to choose the right. It is just something that you must learn to do. Choose the right and you will be blessed.

At the top of Lock Hill, directly across the way from the Mad Dog Saloon, sits the home of Whylmenia M. Knight. With her house situated between two roads that lead into Dargan, Whylmenia was the “gatekeeper” for all visitors to our tiny community. Whylmenia, who died last week at the age of 91, saw a lot of things from her front porch at the top of that long hill. When she was born in 1921, Warren Harding was president of the United States, War World I had ended and Adolf Hitler became chairman of the Nazi Party in Germany.

On May 10, 2013, God called home my best friend at 50 years of age. Janet was a wonderful wife and "best friend" to Doy C. Sneckenberger for more than 30 years. We met one Sunday while she was finishing up her classes at Hagerstown Business College in the fall of 1982. We were married June 15, 1985, at Devil's Backbone Park. That was one of our favorite places to walk and talk about life and make plans for the future. Today, there is no doubt in my mind that she is in paradise with her Lord, Jesus Christ, and setting up a home for us there.

The Hagerstown Suns erased a 4-2 deficit with a four-run rally in the bottom of the seventh inning for a 6-4 victory over the Delmarva Shorebirds on Sunday afternoon in front of 1,083 fans at Municipal Stadium. Pedro Severino got the seventh-inning rally started with a single to center off Shorebirds reliever Kevin Jacob (0-1). Severino took second on a wild pitch and stole third on ball four to Wes Schill. Tony Renda drove in Severino with a single to left, and Khayyan Norfork followed with a double to center, plating Schill with the tying run and Renda from first with the go-ahead run. Estarlin Martinez capped the scoring in the inning with an RBI single to center off reliever Jose Nivar.

As the evening light dims and the sky turns a deep navy blue, a line begins to form outside the First Church of God and Saints of Christ Church in downtown Hagerstown. A woman holds her young son, an elderly man stands alone and a middle-aged couple huddles close together, guarding against the raw December air. The doors will open at 4:30 p.m., but people have started arriving well in advance, not for church services or a music program, but for the most basic of needs - an opportunity to eat a hot, homecooked meal.
