HAGERSTOWN -- The City of Hagerstown, which rents space on its police radio communications tower to a cell phone company, is considering a second lease. Shenandoah Personal Communications Co., which is connected to Sprint, is interested in leasing the tower, according to a memo by Alfred Martin, the city's finance director. The city has had a lease with U.S. Cellular for six years. Together, the leases could mean about $50,000 a year for the city's general fund. Police Chief Arthur Smith told the city council last week that the cell-phone operations won't interfere with the police use of the tower.

Citing the high costs to buy or rent office space, Red Cross Executive Director Jon Jarrell said the organization might be forced to move its organization out of Berkeley County.

County OKs deal to keep AT&T equipment on tank The Washington County Commissioners voted Tuesday to approve a lease agreement allowing AT&T Mobile to keep its existing equipment on the Sharpsburg water tank. Earlier this year, AT&T acquired Dobson Cellular, which has had equipment on the tank for 10 years, Real Property Administrator Joe Kuhna said. The previous arrangement with Dobson expired and AT&T wants to keep its equipment on the tank, Kuhna said. The county currently receives $1,776 per month in rent, but the new lease agreement raises the rent to $1,995, with a 3 percent increase each year, Kuhna said.

Hagerstown Community College has made a deal to keep a college center in the Valley Mall for 10 more years, HCC President Norman Shea said Thursday. The new lease agreement follows six months of hard negotiations that almost resulted in the college's departure, according to Phil Snodderly, HCC's director of facilities management and planning. "The college almost wasn't successful in being able to stay," he said. "We were preparing to bring it all back to campus. " Snodderly would not discuss details of the lease, which had not been finalized by Thursday.

HAGERSTOWN - Picture a group of teens sitting around after school waiting to see the latest "scare" film about the effects of tobacco use on some old geezers. Suddenly, the face of a young person flashes across the screen. The young person has a name - Brandon. What he doesn't have is a big toe, then a foot, then a leg below the calf and finally, the second leg is gone. What Brandon has is Buerger's Disease, which is almost exclusively triggered by the use of tobacco, said James Crowley, who has spent more than 25 years training teachers to help teenagers quit the habit.

SALISBURY, Md. -- A few seconds after John Davies finished the final part of Halfway's Houdini act Wednesday night, he wondered if he'd need to pull another one. "I got mobbed at home plate and I started to wonder if I'd ever get out from under there," Davies said. That's what happens when you hit a walk-off grand slam to cap an eight-run sixth-inning rally and give your team a new lease on life. Down 8-1 to Berlin in the losers' bracket final of the Maryland 11-12 Little League State Tournament, Halfway came all the way back to earn an improbable 13-9 victory and reach the championship round against Brunswick.
