Patricia Weber Wolford, former executive director of the Maryland Theatre, died early Wednesday at her home in Ocala, Fla., said her husband, Ted Wolford. She was 71. Wolford led the Maryland Theatre for nearly 10 years before retiring in 2006, and is credited by some with saving it from financial troubles. She also made waves as executive director of Potomac Bend Medical Center in Hancock, where her involvement in the firing of three doctors in 1987 led to months of controversy, culminating in the center shutting down and reopening under new management as Tri-State Community Health Center.

For about a half-dozen years, the Walkers and their seven children have been traveling the United States, keeping hands clapping and toes tapping to the sounds of country, bluegrass and old-time mountain music. It wasn't the kind of life the couple pictured for themselves when they married and began a life together in Alaska.

“All the Maryland and local board of county commissioners and all, all they do is do these studies or have somebody do these studies and cost the taxpayers a lot of money, and nothing comes of it. They've had so many of these studies done on different things. Whatever is going to happen is going to happen. Get the downtown area started, get it cleaned up, or quit, period.” - Hancock “Everyone should read Kathleen Parker's column on the Opinion page, A4, of Tuesday, Aug. 27's paper.

“I do not support the building of a new stadium in Hagerstown. But if by some miracle it gets approved, can you please have it built by the same people building the library downtown? That way it will never be finished in my lifetime.” - Hagerstown “Have you noticed how our country is sinking to a new low every week? Very few countries in this world like us or trust us, even though we save them, most of them, from a little bit of everything. They have no respect for us, they know that we won't hold true to what we say. But it's just getting terrible.
