Three commissioners referred questions about the payment to Human Resources Director Alan Davis. Davis refused to comment on the issue and directed all questions to the county's attorney.

marlob@herald-mail.com Attempts to jump-start an immediate national search for a new executive director of the Hagerstown-Washington County Economic Development Commission were thwarted Tuesday. "Is this a position (executive director) we want to fill or another marketing position?" said Commissioners President Gregory I. Snook after hearing a lengthy appeal from EDC Chairman Doug Wright to start searching now for the position recently vacated by John Howard. Howard, 63, the executive director of the EDC since September 1997, retired May 8.

wandaw@herald-mail.com SHARPSBURG - Visitors to Antietam National Cemetery will find the grave sites of eight black soldiers, who served in World War I and World War II, tucked away in the back corner of the cemetery. Pfc. Howard S. Puller of West Virginia, Sgt. Littleton Goens of Maryland and Lee I. Lavender, a cook, are among the buried soldiers whose names are barely legible on the weathered headstones containing their date of death and military rank. Unlike the other soldiers, these soldiers represent a "great irony," said John Howard, the cemetery's superintendent.

Thomas Firey is the third individual to sue the Washington County for release of the secret John Howard severance deal, and the first to do so without an ulterior motive. That is, unless you consider good governance to be a motivater, but that concept is so alien around here that it strains credibility. Commissioners Bill Wivell and John Munson sued for this information as well, but in retrospect it seems these were just cheap campaign ploys designed to win votes, not regal efforts to represent the interests of the people.
