Maryland State Department of Education auditors had one issue they reported during a recent conference with Washington County Public Schools officials, but that problem has been resolved, Accounting Director David Brandenburg said Wednesday. State auditors checked a sample inventory of equipment at a school and couldn't find four laptops, Brandenburg told Finance Committee members during a June 25 meeting. At that time, Brandenburg said the laptops, with a total value of approximately $2,120, might have been transferred to another school without being reported or they might have had the wrong identifying tag numbers on them.

If you were asked to make a list of your possessions - clothing, household furnishings and appliances, gardening and automotive equipment, jewelry, etc. - could you do it? It's not easy to do this from memory. But if your house or apartment was destroyed by fire or damaged by a hurricane or tornado, you would need to complete such a list to be compensated by your homeowner's or renter's insurance. In the event of a burglary, the police also would need to know what was taken. To recover stolen items or settle insurance claims, it's important to have a detailed list of losses, proof of ownership and documentation of value.

Hagerstown City Council members voted 4-1 Tuesday to award Roberts Organizational Services Inc. from Columbia, Md., a $7,874 contract to do an inventory of all city records. The program, which is mandated by the state, will identify which records need to be kept permanently and which records can be discarded after a certain length of time, City Clerk Gann Breichner said. Because the expenditure is not part of the budget, the money will come out of a city contingency fund, which is not designated for a specific expense, City Administrator Bruce Zimmerman told the council.

HAGERSTOWN - Jamie Neikirk spent much of Sunday morning sitting in a back room listening as about 200 people bid on inventory left over from years of operating a downtown decorating business. He walked to the front only briefly to start the auction. Neikirk said he couldn't watch. Not because he felt any attachment to the fabric being sold for $2 a roll, but because the sale represented the "end of an era. " "I had to get out of there," he said. Neikirk's and its predecessor occupied the building at 66 W. Franklin St. for 62 years.

The display windows at Barnwood Books’ new location — 13-17 S. Potomac St. — are nearly empty. The only item remaining in the window is a 3-foot stuffed snowman. A sign on the door indicates the store will reopen at 10 o’clock, but the only evidence that the space was once a bookstore are the few books strewn on the floor, along with an assortment of empty boxes. Even the bookshelves have been moved out. Barnwood Books was once a downtown destination for used and rare books.

Lift baskets, staircases and steel were sold at discount prices Friday at a factory sale held by stair-manufacturer Duvinage in Hagerstown. Excess products and items the company was not using at its location at 60 W. Oak Ridge Drive were available for sale. “We have a variety of components and various odds and ends that have been in the shop for many years,” Duvinage President Bob Maruszewski said. “They might be discounted 50 or 60 percent from their original cost.” Maruszewski said the excess inventory sale was due to the company's purchase of an Ohio stair manufacturer, Sharon Stairs, in 2012 and the transfer of its equipment.

"No Farms, No Food" is a bumper sticker that I see a lot around the area. It's not a new item in general, but it has recently made its way onto the vehicles traveling our highways and byways. While this seems logical, where did this come from? The short answer is the American Farmland Trust is responsible for printing and promoting this bumper sticker. This is directly from the American Farmland Trust website: "The message is simple and couldn't be clearer - America's farms and ranches provide an unparalleled abundance of fresh, healthy and local food, but they are rapidly disappearing.
