Logic By LYDIA HADFIELD There once was a man named Tate, Who thought luck was a matter of fate, Never won, never lost, Or had his hopes tossed, Never started 'cause it was too late. Loneliness By LYDIA HADFIELD Loneliness Is a detached blue. It happens when soul drifts on open ocean and squints at distant shore. It sounds like wind through trees or an anonymous city block. It smells like cold pavement and frost.

A Hagerstown reader recently asked a question through Mail Call about bumpy conditions at city street crossings, specifically the intersection of U.S. 40 - which includes West Washington and West Franklin streets - and Burhans Boulevard. “I wonder why the city cannot make smooth crossings at streets,” the reader said. “When you go on West Washington and West Franklin, where Burhans crosses it, you got these big humps and dips. Why can't that be fixed? I seems like it would be an easy project.” City Engineer Rodney Tissue said in an email that Washington and Franklin streets are state-maintained roads, but the city plans to have Burhans Boulevard between West Antietam and Church streets paved in September.

The City of Hagerstown is considering contracting with a high-tech surveying firm that would provide a “snapshot in time” of the condition of city streets, a city official said. City Engineer Rodney Tissue on Tuesday outlined for the Hagerstown City Council a pavement condition survey process using vehicle-mounted cameras and measuring equipment that will take photos and catalog the city's 110 miles of streets. The survey would provide a starting point from which the city would decide what roads need work and then prioritize repair and maintenance efforts, Tissue said.
