Great care at hospital To the editor: During my three day stay at Washington County Hospital, I was impressed not only by the competence but especially the compassion shown by all departments toward myself and other patients. At all times I was treated with respect, dignity and usually a sense of humor. I never realized before that humor and compassion were so closely related. Four people I must mention by name: Mike from Community Rescue Service, Tom on 7E, Bernie in the CAT Scan Department and Dr. Sanjay Saxena.

SHEPHERDSTOWN, W.Va. - There's a little something for everyone on Steve Warner's latest album. There's a little Simon and Garfunkel, a little Eagles, some Johnny Cash and a bit of Prince along with many other popular artists - all in one song. "I had a dream and I had to play ("Me and Bobby McGee") at a bar," said Warner of Shepherdstown, W.Va.

MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - Charles Arthur "Petie" Wroe was his wife's "humor guy" for nearly 40 years and a reliable quarry employee even longer.

"He will be missed. He's already being missed by his fellow employees," said Marco Barbesta, director of communications for ESSROC. Wroe was operating a 100-ton haul truck that inexplicably traveled through a berm and plunged about 120 feet off a cliff to the bottom of the pit, officials have said.
