Teen sent to youth camp A 16-year-old boy who had a knife at Williamsport High School last month was placed at a youth camp Wednesday by Washington County Circuit Judge John H. McDowell. The reason for that placement had nothing to do with the knife incident, but was for violation of an earlier probation. The Feb. 18 knife incident occurred after the teen had been implicated in drug activity and a shoplifting incident, according to Washington County Assistant State's Attorney Susan Lochbaum.

The Washington County Commissioners voted 4-1 Tuesday to pass an ordinance that allows small wind-energy systems and solar panels in all Washington County zoning districts with limits on size, placement and other factors. The ordinance amends the county's zoning ordinance, which does not apply in Hagerstown or incorporated municipalities. Commissioner James F. Kercheval said he voted against the ordinance because he disagreed with the other commissioners' decision to allow wind-energy systems in front yards as long as they are set back a certain distance from the property line.

It might be revealing to compare how the "average person" rates the performance of our 43 U.S. presidents with the methods employed by 238 historians.    When honest, we "average folk" must admit that our judgments are tainted by parental influence, folklore, regional biases and other accidents of personal experience. In addition, we might not have confidence in the claimed objectivity of "egghead" academicians.    Nonetheless, for 28 years, this sizable aggregate of presidential historians has issued five reports in which they rank each president, using 20 criteria on which they judge each of them.

Once more, I need to begin this space with a correction. Two columns ago, I said that a course in humanities was a good way to lump all the world's useless knowledge under one roof. What I meant to say was that North Korea's admission of a nuclear program was a disturbing development in world affairs that needs to be addressed with expediency and caution. I also mistakenly said that William Faulkner was a running back for the Los Angeles Rams. Obviously, everyone knows that the Rams are now in St. Louis.

scottb@herald-mail.com The number of Washington County Public Schools students taking Advanced Placement exams reached an all-time high during the last school year, Boyd Michael, executive director for secondary education, told the Washington County Board of Education during Tuesday's meeting. School board member Bernadette Wagner attributed the increase to the board's decision in January to give Advanced Placement classes more weight than regular classes. Students are more likely to take a tough Advanced Placement class if they know it carries more weight than another course, she said.

While the number of Washington County Public School students taking advanced placement courses and the number of AP exams taken increased for the fourth straight year, some of the discussion during Tuesday's school board meeting concerned whether some students are overextending themselves by taking the courses or taking too many of them. Richard Akers, director for secondary schools and student services, said it's one thing for students to challenge themselves by taking one AP course and another to stretch themselves by taking four.

WAYNESBORO, Pa. -- School officials from Chambersburg and Waynesboro disagree on whether putting alternative placement students at the Franklin County (Pa.) Career and Technology Center would give the career center a bad stigma. Waynesboro Area School Board member Leland Lemley told his board Tuesday that he fears a "detrimental impact" on the facility if a planned academic wing is used for alternative placements. He said he doesn't want the center to develop a bad reputation. Chambersburg Area School Board is moving forward with a proposal to build the academic wing on the career center campus for its use. It submitted conceptual plans to the state.
