gregs@herald-mail.com Additional charges have been filed against a Hagerstown man who was investigated by Montgomery County Police in connection with a probe into an Aug. 13 shooting in Silver Spring, Md., that left Officer Kyle Olinger paralyzed.

Peeking around a corner, Kidd gasped when she saw a man - the husband in the family that owned the house - beginning to undress. “I said, 'What are you doing?!!'” Kidd remembers screaming. As it turned out, the man hadn't known she was there, and he was just changing his clothes. “I don't know who was more embarrassed - him or I,” Kidd said.

It took Stephanie Harrison five trips to the West Virginia Division of Motor Vehicles office to do what before Jan. 3 was a simple task - renew her driver's license. She said every time she went to the office, she was told she needed another form. Blame it on the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, DMV officials said. “The new Secure Driver's License and Identification Card Program is a nationwide effort to improve the integrity and security of all driver's licenses and ID cards in the aftermath of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks,” according to a brochure on the new changes published by the DMV. West Virginia is one of the first states to meet the new regulations.
