Pastor Mike Newman addressed the Waynesboro Borough Council on Wednesday regarding a traffic study required by the council. Newman said he's concerned about the borough asking how traffic from the development will impact the road's integrity.

Otterbein United Methodist Church in Hagerstown is sponsoring its seventh annual bicycle collection in conjunction with Bikes for the World. Hagerstown Rotary Club is also providing assistance in the collection efforts. Collecting bicycles and portable sewing machines to send to those in need in an underdeveloped country, this effort also reduces waste in the United States. A bike that you no longer use helps someone in an underdeveloped country get to work or school, and a working, portable sewing machine provides an opportunity for income and self-sufficiency.
