Field officers from the Humane Society of Washington County rescued three malnourished dogs from an area home this week, the organization said. The agency was made aware of the neglect by a telephone call from an anonymous source who reported three seemingly neglected dogs that were fighting, according to a news release from the humane society. Two of the dogs were deemed emaciated enough for the officers to approach the house, but the owners denied them entrance, leading the officers to work with the Washington County Sheriff's Office, county State's Attorney's Office and county District Court to obtain a warrant to rescue the animals, the release said.

“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.
