" "The government complex that they already had blueprints for - we were opposed to that building for the size and cost," said Supervisor Sam Miller.

The board consisted of four Democrats and one Republican, he recalled. The tables were reversed Tuesday - Wright's final time officiating the ceremony - as four Republicans and a Democrat took an oath to serve the county's residents "diligently and faithfully.

HAGERSTOWN - The day after losing a close election to keep her seat on the Washington County Board of Education, Jacqueline B. Fischer said she blamed only herself. "I didn't gather a campaign committee around me," she said. "I worked the polls myself. I probably didn't have enough signs out. I felt that I did well at the forums, but I guess it just wasn't enough visibility. "Newcomers Ruth Anne Callaham and William H. Staley were voted into office, along with incumbent Paul W. Bailey.
