WASHINGTON COUNTY Maryland taxpayers have until Tuesday to file their income tax returns, thanks to a legal holiday in Massachusetts. Because the traditional April 15 deadline falls on Saturday this year, the deadline normally would have been extended until Monday, April 17, state tax officials said. But Maryland taxpayers mail their federal returns to an IRS office in Massachusetts, where April 17 is Patriots Day, a state holiday. By law, if a tax deadline falls on a legal holiday, taxpayers have until the next business day to file; hence, the April 17 deadline for those filing returns to Massachusetts was bumped to April 18. For the sake of simplicity, state officials will allow Marylanders to mail their state returns up to April 18, as well.

No. 1 deadbeat dad in Mass. arrested in W.Va. By DON AINES Staff Writer MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - Massachusetts' No. 1 deadbeat dad was arrested this week by Martinsburg City Police.

In hopes that voters will pledge their undying gratitude to anyone who saves them a dime on each gallon of milk they buy, Massachusetts state senate leaders are proposing to pull out of the Northeast Dairy Compact. If successful, this small-minded, short-sighted action could cripple East Coast dairy farmers' best chance to survive. Some income-support mechanism is essential because in some areas of the country, milk prices have slipped below farmers' cost of production. And before you say, "That's not my problem," consider the following.

martinsburg@herald-mail.com Silence was ushered in with the snow that fell days earlier in Harpers Ferry, leaving gift shops closed, restaurant tables empty, cobblestone streets bare. One recent afternoon, a woman driving a large sport utility vehicle parked alongside John Brown's fort left her car's engine idling and quickly walked past the fort and out of sight, a camera in her hands. Footprints in the snow around the fort were outnumbered by brown, prickly balls that fell from surrounding sweetgum trees.
