daniels@herald-mail.com HAGERSTOWN - Not a single patient called to cancel their appointment with Dr. Arthur H. Horn on June 1. During the week before that, in fact, the situation was much the same. And the week before. "It's been hectic. We've been seeing like 60 patients a day. Nobody cancels, nobody doesn't show up because they want to see him. They want to say goodbye," said Horn's office manager, Sue Jordan. "They want to have that closure with him. " Horn, who came to Washington County in 1984 to help Washington County Hospital develop a pain management program, began conducting exit visits with his patients about two months ago and shut down his Hagerstown pain management and treatment practice in early June.

Horn player Paul Hopkins doesn't believe in talent. "I don't believe there's a little fairy that runs around and hits people on the head and suddenly you're a gifted musician. It takes work - a long-term commitment and daily practice," he said in a recent phone interview from his New Market, Md., home. Born in San Diego, Hopkins, 39, said he was a Navy brat whose family moved a lot, but he did most of his growing up near Washington, D.C. In addition to playing the horn, Hopkins is involved in the MSO's educational outreach.

A powder-based fire extinguishing system worked properly, keeping a fire in a Hagers-town auto body shop's paint hood from spreading Thursday morning, city Deputy Fire Chief Ron Horn said. "It did exactly what it was supposed to do," Horn said. Fire broke out inside the paint booth at Hub City Auto Body and Painting at 757 Frederick St. at about 10:15 a.m. A heat-sensitive switch turned on the extinguisher, and it took about 20 responding firefighters 10 minutes to put the flames out, Horn said.

There is a mention in a history of the Rohrersville Cornet Band that the founder of the group, Washington McCoy, is buried “within a stone’s throw” of the band’s performance hall. Perhaps McCoy is keeping an eye on the band, according to the history. He might have a busy job, given that the band is the longest-running community band in Maryland, members said Sunday. Organized in 1837, the Rohrersville Cornet Band is representative of bands that were a form of entertainment before television and radio, said Toby Gibbon, a clarinet player and president of the group who performed in the group’s spring concert Sunday.
