“Kristin Aleshire, Mr. Don Munson, I thought you all were going to do a little bit better job than what you are doing now, talking about raising taxes. First thing the city needs to do is quit spending. You give a $1,000 bonus to all the city employees, which should be none. What you people on the city council needs to do is ride around Hagerstown and see how many houses are up for sale and take a study on how many people can't pay the light bill and water bill before you raise taxes.” - Hagerstown “It's Saturday at 2:30 and raining very hard, the roads are really wet and a black car went down the road just fast as he could go wanting to show all of us, I guess, that he can go spinning in the rain and maybe he could go off the road and hit a tree.

Minutes before receiving her diploma Wednesday night, Hedgesville High School graduating senior Stephanie Gardner said she plans to become a history teacher. “I want to go back (to school), I guess,” the 17-year-old girl said smiling. “I just had some really great history teachers at Hedgesville that inspired me to the same sort of thing,” Gardner said. Gardner was among 375 in this year's graduating class, which was saluted at Hedgesville High School's 112th commencement in the Butcher Center at Shepherd University for netting “well over” $3 million in scholarships.
