A possible plan for refurbishing Municipal Stadium described Tuesday includes a plaza at the entrance and a new - but old-fashioned - scoreboard. John Budesky, Hagerstown's director of administrative services, said the improvements would cost $40,000 to $50,000. About $11,000 to $12,000 of that would pay for relocating an electrical substation, he said. The plan Budesky showed the City Council Tuesday called for a ticket booth and a customer service area to be moved and a wrought-iron fence to run around a plaza with planters and benches.

By VANDANA SINHA Staff Writer The summer drought has taken a toll on spring seedlings and young trees, according to local planters and foresters. They say fledgling trees are more susceptible to drought-related damage because their roots do not stretch into the groundwater. Jernigan Landscaping Owner Troy Jernigan, of Hagerstown, said he lost about 25 percent of the seedlings he planted early this year. Some nurseries said homeowners who correctly watered newly planted trees have tended to have better results.

Official wants instant messaging system CHARLES TOWN, W.Va. - Jefferson County Commission member Rusty Morgan said Thursday he would like to set up a system where local residents can receive regular updates about county government. Morgan said he thinks some sort of "instant messaging" system which people would subscribe to would be a beneficial way for residents to be informed about county government.

WAYNESBORO, Pa. -- The Waynesboro Borough Council has greatly trimmed a plan to plant trees in the public Rotary parking lot. Landscaping design that went before the council Wednesday was hacked from 35 trees and 142 shrubs to "up to eight trees. " The council said it could later add trees in concrete planters. Councilman Ronnie Martin praised the full redesign plan for the parking lot but said the cost had escalated beyond council's means. "It's beautiful. I'd love to see it, but we don't have the money," Martin said.
