The Humane Society of Washington County introduced a new executive director last week and, in so doing, acknowledged that the agency might be in need of some new directions. Michael Lausen, former operations manager of the Humane Society of El Paso, Texas, will replace Paul Miller, who departed in November for unexplained reasons. Two of Lausen's stated priorities involve policies that many in the community believed received short shrift under Miller's leadership: animal placement and financial transparency.

tarar@herald-mail.com WASHINGTON COUNTY - If you're thinking about adopting an animal or using other Humane Society services, you may be paying more for it by mid-summer. Paul Miller, executive director of the Humane Society of Washington County, said the organization has proposed raising fees and creating others to make up for rising operating costs, including sheltering more animals. The new fees, if approved, would go into effect July 1. The Humane Society's board of directors and the Washington County Commissioners would have to approve the fee proposals, Miller said.

WILLIAMSPORT - The air temperature might have been a little milder than expected for the first day of January, but when 98.6 degrees (people) hit 40 degrees (water), it was quite a shock. Nonetheless, dozens of men, women, children, comic book characters and superheroes participated Monday in the Williamsport Polar Bear Potomac River Plunge 2007. The event began at noon, and was over about 20 seconds later. Started more than 15 years ago by Todd Bowman and some of his friends, the polar bear event has, for the past four years, also been a fundraiser for the Humane Society of Washington County.

WASHINGTON COUNTY -- They can sit, roll over and play fetch like they've been doing it for years. Many of them are housebroken, obedient and friendly. All of which makes officials at the Humane Society of Washington County all the more curious when the dogs are described as strays by the people dropping them off. "Something is going on," said Katherine Cooker, manager of development and public relations for the Humane Society. In the last two months, the Humane Society has been flooded with animals that are listed as strays on paperwork.

marlob@herald-mail.com CLEAR SPRING - A native of Hagerstown, Paul Miller attended school in Pennsylvania and later ventured to California while serving in the U.S. Navy. But a series of circumstances and a new career drew him back to Washington County. That career is the buying and selling of jewelry, coins, watches and collectibles, with Miller first setting up shop in Hagerstown and more recently, in Clear Spring. "I was in Hagerstown at 14 N. Potomac St. until May," Miller said of his business, which he continues to call Hagerstown Coin and Jewelry Exchange despite his relocation 12 miles to the west of the Hub City.

To the editor: I would like to publicly acknowledge Paul Miller, executive director of the Humane Society of Washington County, for his extraordinary efforts leading up to the animal cruelty case against Gregory Wiles. As most are aware, in December 2006, the HSWC was thrust into what is believed to be the largest horse rescue ever in the state of Maryland. Five horses lost their lives and the 70 that survived needed to be nursed back to health and placed in safe homes.

I want to take this opportunity to expand upon the recent stories in The Herald-Mail concerning the aspects of what we do for the community. The Humane Society of Washington County has two major operational components: Animal Control and Humane Society services. Past administration decided to accept a contract with Washington County government to provide animal control services pursuant to the Washington County Animal Control Ordinance. Animal control ordinances historically are designed to protect the community's citizens from animals and their undesirable behaviors, unlike cruelty laws that were designed to protect animals from people's abusive and/or neglectful behavior toward them.
