Judge Frederick J. Bower granted Hershey, Washington County's elected treasurer, probation before judgment, and placed him on two years unsupervised probation.

The initial list tends to steadily decline as the day of the auction nears, Washington County Treasurer Todd L. Hershey said. “We hope to get the figure down to less than 300 every year” by the time of the auction, he said.

On or around Independence Day I like to write about freedom, patriots, our military or veterans; this year I didn't. John R. “Jack” Hershey, Jr. passed away on June 27 and was memorialized on July 2; I was honored to attend the memorial service. But Jack's passing put me in a funk. I don't know why, it just did. Jack and I were friends - oh, I wasn't his best friend, yet over the past 10 to 15 years I was proud to declare Jack as a friend. And like literally thousands of others I always felt that Jack considered me a friend.  That's just the way Jack was.  I remember one of his birthday celebrations - Jack and Anna literally rented Fort Ritchie for the day, where hundreds of his friends were welcomed to fete Jack on achieving another milestone.
