A jury convicted a Hagerstown man of reckless endangerment in connection with a July argument in which he cut a man with a samurai sword. Brian A. Israel, 25, of Northspring Apartments at 1400 Haven Road, was sentenced by Washington County Circuit Judge Frederick C. Wright III to five years unsupervised probation after being convicted Tuesday. At the time of the incident, Israel and two other men lived at 31 1/2 E.

Personal functions should not be taxed To the editor: The Maryland House of Delegates has dug deep into the "bowels" of humanity in search of additional state revenue in proposing a "fee" for sewer and septic system use. All Maryland citizens will now be concerned about each trip they make to the bathroom. You might be wondering exactly how much this "human biological necessity" will now cost you in new fees (defined as another way to tax) with each trip to the bathroom.

To the editor: We hung my father's flag out on Sept. 11 - to remember! We must know and remember. Thank God there are all those TV specials finally telling the truth about what has really been happening, and some of what has been happening throughout modern history leading up to Sept. 11, 2001. Where has the news media been? Maybe now the younger generation will finally be able to put the pieces together. We mustn't shield them from reality. This war isn't some whim of an overly aggressive right wing.

WASHINGTON COUNTY - High atop a brown mare, Couy Griffin meandered along Virginia Avenue between Williamsport and Hagerstown. His miniature mule walked nearby, packing along food, camping gear and the Gospel of John printed in small blue books. Griffin is on a mission from God, spreading the message of Jesus Christ. "I just hand out the Word," he said Monday. Griffin, 32, of Reserve, N.M., looks like an unlikely messenger, wearing a white cowboy hat, scuffed boots, dark jeans and chaps.

The latest local and state elections results suggest that voters have second thoughts about the tea party's political agenda. Consider the following: • In Ohio, unions scored a victory. Voters elected tea party-backed John Kasich as their Republican governor last year. One of his most prominent initiatives was legislation limiting public employees' collective bargaining rights. Opponents collected 1.3 million signatures to subject his anti-bargaining bill to a referendum. On Nov. 8, Ohioans overwhelmingly voted to repeal Kasich's bill, which they rejected by 61 percent to 39 percent.

The sabbath and Sunday are not the same To the editor: If I incorrectly quoted the opening lines of Hamlet, “To sleep, or not to sleep, that is the question,” I would expect those familiar with Shakespeare to set the record straight. And if I wrote, “Four score and seven years ago our grandmothers brought forth, upon this continent, a new nation,” I would want someone to defend Lincoln's Gettysburg legacy. In that spirit, allow me to make some corrections to a recent letter to the editor (Sept.

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Israel and the Palestinians will resume long-stalled direct peace talks in Washington early next month with the aim of reaching a settlement in a year's time, Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said Friday. The breakthrough after a nearly two-year hiatus in face-to-face negotiations marks a small but important step forward in the Obama administration's efforts to ease tensions in the Middle East. It brings the two sides back to the point where they were when the last direct talks began in November 2007 during the Bush administration.

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Longtime Washington journalist Helen Thomas abruptly retired Monday as a columnist for Hearst News Service following remarks she made about Israel that were denounced by the White House and her press corps colleagues.

Known for her confrontational questioning, Thomas apologized for comments that were captured on video and have spread widely on the Internet.
