Think of the huge gains that were made in 1987 when the Intermediate Range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty was signed by President Reagan. Two years later, the Berlin Wall came down, Soviet troops withdrew from Eastern Europe and the Cold War was over. Europeans, Americans and Russians all enjoyed a peace dividend. What if all that could be reversed? If the Russians walked away from the INF Treaty, went back to building and installing more missiles, got into another spending contest with us, created tension, poverty and chaos across three continents ?

By KERRY LYNN FRALEY Staff Writer English professor Jean Wilson is proud of former student Martha Ross Jones, who published a book she wrote several years ago as a class project in Wilson's children's literature class. But that isn't why Wilson is using the children's book, "Willow Finds a Friend," as the centerpiece of her presentation to her Polish peers this summer. It's the perfect way to illustrate the American approach to higher education, said Wilson, one of two Hagerstown Junior College professors traveling to Poland this summer to share "active learning" techniques with Polish educators.

As fans make their way into HCC's athletic complex for a volleyball match, they are given a sheet with the Hawks' roster. As usual, it includes plenty of players who graduated from Washington County schools - Boonsboro, Clear Spring, North Hagerstown and Williamsport. Then, toward the bottom, something unusual: Magda Tekiel, 6-foot-1, outside hitter, freshman, Warsaw, Poland. Curiosity is quickly replaced by awe the moment Tekiel hits one of the blistering kills she's becoming known for. Kills that hit the court so hard and so fast, they bounce more than 10 feet in the air. Kills that bounce off of opposing blocks and back over her teammates' heads, landing well past HCC's own back line.

November 10 1997 Local woman helps Lithuania's developing military By KERRY LYNN FRALEY Staff Writer It felt kind of strange sharing military strategy with former adversaries. But that aspect of the mission also made it more exciting, said U.S. Army Maj. Laura L. Marfut of Hagerstown, one of a two-officer team sent to Lithuania in August to help its developing military. "During the Cold War, they were on the other side," said Marfut, 38, a tactical intelligence officer.

“You know, this business of not getting a budget for the country is just a lot of whoop-dee-doo, because the Republicans had said, right from the very beginning, that they will do not anything to help President Obama, because they want him to be a one-term president. So instead of doing what is right for the country, they are doing what they want to do, to get him out of office.” - Falling Waters, W.Va. “The Tim Butterworth opinion page article in the Nov. 22 paper is an outrage.
