HAGERSTOWN In the name of diversity, the Washington County Board of Education is trying to minimize academic disparities and cultural barriers, schools officials said Monday. Maryland is projected to be, within 15 years, a "majority minority" state, Deputy Superintendent for Instruction Patricia Abernethy said. That means most residents will belong to what are considered minority groups. Abernethy said the district is working to improve minority students' test scores and to better understand cultural differences.

MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - The attorney for a man charged in the abduction and death of his 7-year-old niece is satisfied the prosecutor's office has turned over all the evidence against his client, but he doesn't want a Berkeley County jury to hear it. At a hearing Wednesday in Berkeley County Circuit Court, Michael Newell's attorney, Aaron Amore, and Prosecuting Attorney Pamela Games-Neely went over the evidence to be presented against Newell at...

WAYNESBORO, Pa. - A Waynesboro councilman claiming to have been "crucified" by media coverage has asked the board and its legal counsel to clear his name. Discussion at the Dec. 5 meeting of the Waynesboro Borough Council centered on allegations that Councilman Charles "Chip" McCammon personally accepted fees for municipally required inspection services. Although he was employed by Accredited Services Inc. when the alleged misconduct occurred, Council President Craig Newcomer referred to a copy of a letter written on borough letterhead.

Change in military policy a real positive To the editor: Combat fatalities are rapidly approaching the 5,000 mark in our country's ongoing wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Yet, most Americans take little notice at this alarming figure because they have become immune to the media coverage, what little there is locally and nationally. Michael Jackson's bizarre death and President Obama's injection of racial profiling into a news conference have silenced any tribute or honor these brave American soldiers should receive upon return to their homeland.

By AMY WALLAUER Staff Writer MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - The man accused of bludgeoning his 7-year-old niece to death is scheduled for a July trial in Berkeley County Circuit Court, but his attorney hopes to move the case to a different county. Public defender Aaron Amore, citing the community's outrage over the slaying and the heavy media coverage it has drawn, said he will file a motion for a change of venue early next week. On Friday, Michael Newell, 39, of 2105 Winchester Ave., pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder, kidnapping and felony murder charges in the death of Jessica Newell, whose body was found in the woods two days after she disappeared from a Martinsburg bowling alley.

March Madness ended in April, which makes about as much sense as anything else associated with the college basketball tournament. I enjoy the first weekend of the tournament as much as anything in sports, but by the time the championship game rolls around, I'm pretty much exhausted by all the hype and media coverage and have turned my attention to baseball, a sport played at a speed with which I am more suited. But this year things were a little different. I don't think my mom would mind me telling you that she is 87; she seems to have given up aging for Lent some years back and lives up north with my brother's family.

pepperb@herald-mail.com scottb@herald-mail.com The large field for the Washington County Board of Education election spells good news for the community, current and former educators and board members said this week. "The more candidates, the better," Schools Superintendent Elizabeth Morgan said. She said current School Board members' efforts to get the word out that more candidates are needed may have helped to prompt a large group of people to file. The last time 16 people filed for a school board primary was in 1998, Doris James, a clerk with the county Board of Elections, has said.

What if media coverage were 100 percent liberal? To the editor: What would the newspaper and television coverage of the political scene be like if instead of being just 90 percent with the liberal slant, it was 100 percent? There would no longer be a place for programming like you find on Fox News. You would believe that our president had already been crowned king. The country would be portrayed as in a state of constant crisis requiring the intervention of Washington.
