WAYNESBORO, PA. - Washington Township, Pa., has less than 2 percent of the $150,000 in donations needed to expand Happel's Meadow Wetlands Preserve. And settlement on the land is in 14 days. The township supervisors said they will pull from general funds to write a check for the six acres off Pennersville Road in Blue Ridge Summit, Pa. However, they had hoped to raise the money locally to match a state grant when spending a total $300,000. Poor communication could be to blame for the dearth of donations, some residents said Wednesday.

After the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, a group of Washington County citizens, civic activists and religious leaders decided they needed to act. To pre-empt the possibility that local residents would blame members of the local Muslim community for those attacks, they formed the Interfaith Coalition of Washington County. In the years since it was formed, the group has held a variety of events, including everything from large gatherings at Hagerstown Community College's Kepler Theater to small-group discussions on how different faith traditions affect believers' daily lives.

So, he and some of his students are taking steps to accentuate that in a big way. A master instructor, Bolding has been in the martial arts field for 14 years. The business, which is owned by his wife, Julie Bolding, moved to the North End of Hagerstown earlier this year. "We have organized an effort to send handwritten letters and needed items to 70 Air Force troops stationed in Afghanistan," Bolding said.
