Hagerstown city officials recently condemned Zipper's, a bar on North Jonathan Street, because the owners were doing electrical, plumbing and other types of construction without proper permits, said John Lestitian, the city's director of code administration. Lestitian said the business was condemned March 13 for failure to obtain the permits. Since then, the owners have applied for and been granted electrical and plumbing permits.

HAGERSTOWN - Two brothers charged with second-degree murder in the April death of their father, who died as a result of what investigators alleged was neglect, were scheduled to appear Thursday morning in Washington County Circuit Court.

Boat buyers now have a faster and more convenient way to register their vessels with the Maryland Department of Natural Resources. For a $45 fee, Frederick Street Title and Tag Service will save someone the hassle of filling out the required paperwork. For the last five years, people who buy boats privately have had to correspond by mail or in person with the nearest DNR Service Center, which is in Cumberland, Md. If you buy a boat from a dealer, the dealership will take care of the paperwork, according to the DNR. Pat Boden used to offer the service when she had her own business, Pat's Title and Tag, but no one locally took her place when she closed the business five years ago, the DNR confirmed.

BLUE RIDGE SUMMIT, Pa. -- The Washington Township (Pa.) Supervisors have applied for a grant that would help them acquire land believed to have been part of the Battle of Monterey Pass during the Civil War. The application paperwork described the property as the site of Gen. George Custer's battlefield line at 3 a.m. July 5, 1863. Historian John Miller has described the battle, the second-largest in Pennsylvania, as confusing due to poor weather and terrain. An interesting aspect of the battle is that it was fought on both sides of the Mason-Dixon Line, he said.
