Joanne Bartlett had been volunteering at Loaves and Fishes Thrift Store in Hancock for a little more than a year, when the annual volunteer recognition dinner rolled around in December 2010. Bartlett looked forward to a nice evening out, never dreaming what was in store for her. When Bartlett was awarded the Volunteer of the Year award, all she could think of was those who had been volunteering for years before her. "Yes, ma'am, I was speechless.... Everyone has been here longer than me," Bartlett said.

Dog racism To the editor: I read the recent Herald-Mail article regarding the border collie that bit the little girl being given a reprieve by being sent to Florida. I find it disgusting that this dog that has been shown to be aggressive to humans will be spared while a pit bull that was aggressive towards another dog was destroyed. Aggression toward humans by any breed should not be tolerated for the safety of the public. Dog aggression and human aggression are entirely separate issues.

“Hagerstown mayor and council, shame on you. The only reason that you will not allow the Soul Food church to serve meals to the homeless one day a week is because you don't want the homeless to be seen in your precious downtown. May I remind you that Jesus and the 12 disciples were poor and homeless, but the believers always fed and housed them. What would you do if Jesus and the disciples would ask you for permission to teach and preach to the multitudes in the public square and provide the loaves and fishes to feed them?
