Tye Souders of Hancock submitted a photograph showing the misspelled sign near the 19-mile marker on westbound I-70. “For some reason, a 'Q' was used instead of a 'G'” in the word Conococheague,” Souders wrote in an email to The Herald-Mail. Souders said his photo shows the westbound sign, but the same mistake was made on the eastbound sign.

Gloria Thomas said in an email that the potholes are at both ends of the busy alley that runs between the 100 block of Broadway and the 100 block of North Avenue. The alley is parallel to North Mulberry Street near Fairgrounds Park. “The hole near Broadway has been filled from time to time by residents with bricks and other rocks, but needs a real repair,” Thomas said in her email.
