tarar@herald-mail.com WASHINGTON COUNTY - Washington County might not buy Charmin, but for a government that tears through 48,000 rolls of toilet paper a year, the price fits the budget. The county will spend $11,125 this fiscal year on toilet paper, which is enough to buy 500 cases. At 96 rolls per case and 1,000 sheets per roll, that's 48 million sheets of one-ply toilet paper the county estimates it will use in a year. The county typically buys some items in bulk to save money, such as paper towels, copier paper and other daily supplies.

Some stores in Washington County were fast running out of essential bad-weather supplies such as generators and flashlights Monday, but grocery store shelves for the most part held what people were seeking.

The Martin's grocery store on Wesel Boulevard had bottles of water, bread, batteries, ice packs, paper towels, toilet paper and milk all in stock, but it was running low on water, paper towels and toilet paper.

Many take it for granted that the refrigerator will be stocked with plenty of food for dinner and there will be milk ready to pour over the family's morning cereal. But for thousands of Franklin County, Pa., residents, the cupboards are bare. For American Legion Rider member Joe Cocco of Chambersburg, Pa., that is unacceptable. So, he gathered American Legion Riders from across the county and organized a 75-mile Food Pantry Ride to benefit South Central Community Action Programs' six county food pantries, each of which was visited by the riders.

SADIE'S SONG by Michelle Cunningham You made me very angry, mom, leaving me this way. How dare you let me all alone? You know, it's quite risky. I'll have a temper tantrum and tear around the house, chew the cat like he's a toy, and get up on your couch. I'll rip the paper all to shreds, enjoying every minute, jump upon your new-made bed 'cause I know you won't permit it. I'll howl as if I've lost my head and scare the mailman witless; I'll eat your shoes, and there's no excuse except I'm mad and did it. I'll tear the rug then steal the cake from the counter where it sits, and pull the curtains down because I'm in a royal snit.
