Kelly Cromer should step down To the editor: When politicians take on a subject on which they haven't gathered all the facts, they can sometimes be at a disadvantage. When a politician is in a personal situation and makes political accusations, while not taking personal responsibility, it's an embarrassment. Hagerstown Councilwoman Kelly S. Cromer was pulled over for speeding recently and then accused the City of Hagerstown's Police Department of having a "vendetta" against her. This is absurd.

 BERKELEY SPRINGS, W.Va. -- The new courthouse offices were fine-tuned in meetings Thursday with project architects in the Morgan County Commission trailer. Tom Potts and Jeremy Jones of Silling Associates, the architectural firm hired by the Morgan County Commission to design the new courthouse, met with individual department personnel to look at office plans. The courthouse was destroyed by fire in August 2006, and the county offices have been operating in trailers in the old parking lot. Personnel from the county assessor's office, Vonda Miller, Debbie Weaver and Assessor John Allen Swaim, worked with Potts to get the right combination of workable space in their office.

All right, just so we're clear: A company buys a downtown Hagerstown property in 2006 near the height of the real estate market for $1.5 million. Then the housing bubble bursts, the floor drops out from under prices and the Washington County Commissioners move to buy that same property - for $3 million. Makes sense. Oh, did I mention I have a house I'm trying to move? I was going to wait until the market bounced back in about 2025, but what the hey - if the county's in a buying mood, may as well make a pitch.

Sidewalk cafe draft guidelines discussed During Tuesday's Hagerstown City Council meeting, city staff submitted an unofficial draft of a license agreement that would set the regulations for sidewalk cafes. The draft was submitted for the council's consideration. If the draft is adopted into an official license agreement, business owners would have to sign the document before they would be allowed to open a sidewalk cafe. The draft suggested that an applicant would have to submit, among other things, a certificate of liability insurance and illustrations of furniture items.

HAGERSTOWN - A major portion of the construction project in the first block of South Potomac Street in downtown Hagerstown should be finished by early 2008, said Irv Gish, director of special development for Bowman Development Corp. Construction on the multimillion dollar project, which is next to Duffy's on Potomac and funded entirely with private money, started in 2005, Gish said. "We really don't have a definite schedule," he said. "We're trying to design as we go. " The project includes the renovation of three adjacent properties - the Walker House, the Tri-State Electric building and the site of the former Double T Lounge.
