This is the 184th in a series of articles about the historical and architectural treasures of Washington County. The Greencastle-Baltimore Road was built in 1807 to intersect with Nicholson's Gap Road in northeast Hagerstown. This intersection was on Jacob Leiter's property, part of a land tract called "Well Taught. " Jacob's son, Andrew, purchased the land around the crossroads in 1811 from his father. Four years later, he laid out a town of 53 lots at this intersection.

A new lease unanimously approved by the Waynesboro Borough Council on Wednesday will keep the Trinity United Church of Christ parking lot available for public use. The borough council and church off North Potomac Street spent months negotiating a new contract to allow parking on the otherwise private church property. Leasing the lot for downtown business and special events parking will cost the municipality $150 a month, officials said. That is the same rate as used in previous years.

Roger Mattei said he is still kicking himself for selling the building that houses the Millville Post Office five years ago. Now, because of it, the post office is closing for the first time in 128 years. “I should never have sold this place,” lamented Mattei. His big “A” box holds all the mail generated by his three businesses. “I come here every day. Now I’m going to have to change more than 200 addresses,” he said.

By MARLO BARNHART / Staff Writer photo: KEVIN G. GILBERT / staff photographer After 41 years of operating a full-service Exxon service station on Hagerstown's Dual Highway, Ed Pike shut down his pumps and his garage for the last time at noon on Wednesday. Earlier, Pike stopped what he was doing around 10:30 a.m. and responded to a telephone call for help from a regular customer who couldn't get her car started at her Funkstown home. Exxon notified Pike last winter that his station and several other local Exxon stations were going to be sold.

We respect Hagerstown-Washington County Economic Development Commission member Stuart Mullendore for stepping up and agreeing to take over a temporary position responsible for implementing a set of business strategies designed to pull Washington County out of its economic doldrums. Mullendore has the passion for the assignment and a sincere concern for the community. We also thank him for doing the job for free, which will save the county at least $25,000 over six months. This won't be any easy job, however, as the EDC has seemingly been spinning its wheels for more than a year now - since it fired its executive director and announced it was seeking a new path.

By BRENDAN KIRBY Staff Writer Washington County Regional Airport officials agreed Thursday to address concerns voiced by local pilots about their lease with the county to house their airplanes. The lease was to have gone into effect July 31, but the advisory Washington County Regional Airport Commission voted to postpone the change until the end of August while officials review the concerns. Pilots said they are concerned the lease is too restrictive, gives the county too much authority to search their hangars and does not provide enough legal protection.

City officials are continuing negotiations with the Hagerstown Suns ownership on a lease extension that would keep the minor league baseball team in town through 2014. Suns majority owner Bruce Quinn attended a 30-minute closed-door session with city Mayor Robert E. Bruchey II and the five-member Hagerstown City Council Tuesday afternoon. Afterward, Councilman Lewis C. Metzner said that the two sides agreed to continue discussions on a new lease, but no formal decisions would be made until the completion of a report by the Ripken Group, the firm commissioned to perform a stadium-feasibility study.

Although several crucial uncertainties remain, Hagerstown City Council members Tuesday seemed receptive to the preliminary timeline developed by city officials for planning and constructing a downtown multiuse sports and events center. City Engineer Rodney Tissue discussed the timetable during a  council work session. “Sitting here in May of 2012, this is our best guess,” Tissue told the council. “There's a lot of factors that could influence it, but it seems like a logical pattern of how the timeline could work.” City and elected officials agreed that the first major hurdle is securing a longterm lease with the Hagerstown Suns minor league baseball team as the primary tenant of the facility, which could be built at the corner of Baltimore Street and Summit Avenue by spring 2015, according to the timeline.

The Maryland Board of Public Works voted 2-1 Wednesday to lease land at a prison complex near Hagerstown to a company planning a $70 million solar farm. The board - made up of Gov. Martin O'Malley, Comptroller Peter V.R. Franchot and Treasurer Nancy K. Kopp - had to approve the lease for the project to move ahead. The project still needs the approval of the Maryland Public Service Commission, which has scheduled a hearing for Aug. 18 in Baltimore. Franchot questioned the lease proposal, particularly why the state didn't try to share a $24 million federal grant the project would get. However, states aren't allowed to receive credits under that federal program, Raquel Guillory, a spokesman for O'Malley, wrote in an email after the meeting.

CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. -- For Stacy Spoonhour, Sept. 7 was at once her birthday, Labor Day and, perhaps most importantly, her independence day.

They indulged in hot dogs, baked macaroni and cheese, and sweet potatoes while observing Spoonhour's 29th birthday. The event also marked Spoonhour's second week out of jail. She engaged in conversation with her cousins, and enjoyed watching her daughter and son run around the park.
