A Hagerstown man who waited until his neighbor's dog died before breaking into her home last year was sentenced Tuesday in Washington County Circuit Court to seven years in state prison for that break-in and another burglary. Clyde Eugene Gatrell Jr., 39, of 1257 Magnolia Court, pleaded guilty to first-degree burglary and theft of $1,000 to $10,000. Circuit Judge Daniel P.

For Danielle Hose, Aug. 4, 2010, was a memorable day. In a boat on a lake near Big Pool, the 22-year-old Williamsport native was fishing with Joseph Siler Jr., her boyfriend of about three years, something they had done many times before. But this time was different. Instead of hooking a largemouth bass or bluegill from the waters below, Siler, 23, reeled in his future wife. “I stood up (in the boat) to get something and he turned around in his seat with the ring box,” Hose said.
