South Hagerstown High School's Dustin Carr had to get a lift up to get to the platform to receive his True Grit award at Tuesday night's banquet at the Four Points Sheraton. You see, Dustin has cerebral palsy, but that hasn't stopped him from competing in track and field and cross country at South High. He might have had to get a lift up, but he gave everyone in the room a lift in spirit after South High teacher Ann Platou's inspiring testimonial about him. The audience gave him a standing O. Dustin was the last to receive his award that night, and as he made his way to the podium with the help of a cane, you had to wonder just how does this young man compete in track and field and cross country?

Every month I meet with a group of local citizens who advise me on editorial page matters. For more than five years we've been coming together for these two-hour meetings. The group's members offer constructive criticism, some of which stings. But the best thing I get is different perspectives on what is happening. With that in mind - and because our last meeting fell the day after Maryland's Sept. 12 primary - I asked members to tell me which issues I and the editorial page staff should concentrate in in the general election campaign.
