HAGERSTOWN -- Many are aware that N. Linn Hendershot left a rich legacy for anyone coping with a disability, but few know it was truly a living legacy. Seven organs were harvested from the community activist and former Hagerstown City Council member after his May 1 death. The organ donations were made possible with the help of a new piece of lifesaving equipment -- the EZ-IO -- demonstrated to Hendershot on April 29, the day he fell ill. "Later that very day, we used it for the first time, on Linn," Community Rescue Service Assistant Chief Dave Hays said.

shappell@herald-mail.com WASHINGTON COUNTY - Just because local guitarist Jason Chalfant died earlier this year doesn't mean he can't still pack a house full of music fans. Several musicians at a Sunday benefit for an organ donation group, held in his honor one day after his birthday, said the show was all about honoring the revered musician's heart. The 2004 Jason Chalfant Memorial Jam drew more than 125 music fans to the New Del-Mar Inn on U.S. 40. The show featured local blues rock acts such as Dem Guise, Chalfant's former band Rudy & The Bluefish, and an ensemble featuring his brother, former Kix drummer Jimmy Chalfant, whose members performed Jimi Hendrix songs they played together when they were teenagers.

A nuisance abatement bill on blighted properties. Another bill that requires contractors and subcontractors working for the government to use or supply American manufactured goods. And yet another on organ donation and drivers licenses. These are just three among nearly a dozen bills that were filed by Sen. Ron Young, D-Frederick/Washington, before the 2013 Maryland General Assembly session began this week, an action known as pre-filing. None of the other legislators from the Washington County delegation had pre-filed any other bills but several said Thursday they have a bunch of bills ready to go. So why does Young like to file bills early?
