The Herald-Mail is getting rid of its press equipment, but the company has no plans to move from its downtown building, Publisher Andy Bruns said this week. Instead, the company is interested in finding a tenant for the three-story, glass-enclosed space built to showcase the now-idle press, Bruns said. Since the end of March, The Herald-Mail has been printed on the press at The Frederick-News Post. Press removal began at the beginning of October and is expected to wrap up by the end of the year, Bruns said.

Why is it that people captivated by love or another strong emotion so often turn to poetry to express their feelings? With its condensed form and layers of emotion, poetry is a great way to convey love in all its forms - romance, love of parents or children, brotherly love, patriotism, love for a pet or friend. The Herald-Mail invites readers to compose and enter love poetry in our first poetry contest. Our topic is love. Entries may be about any aspect of love - love lost, love found, love spurned, sexual attraction, love fulfilled, even a broken heart.

Quincy Village used a hot air balloon Monday morning to symbolically launch a new initiative designed to help residents with what is being called successful aging. The “masterpiece living” program focuses on physical, spiritual, intellectual and social needs. “It enhances life. It makes you appreciate stuff that much more,” said Russell Schwartz, who moved into Quincy Village's independent living area three and a half years ago. He and his wife, Judy, trained in the masterpiece living program last fall to help introduce it to other residents in the retirement community.

Editorial unfairly characterized Paul Miller To the editor: I was dismayed to read The Herald-Mail's negative portrayal of Paul Miller, the former director of the Humane Society of Washington County, in a Feb. 14 editorial. I've known him professionally and personally for more than seven years and have nothing but respect for the man and what he has contributed to the Humane Society. It seems The Herald-Mail has deemed his accomplishments there not worthy of mentioning - such as his steering the HSWC as a solidly funded nonprofit organization dependent on public donations, or the overseeing of the largest horse rescue in the state of Maryland.
