Five months after getting a $13,000 grant from the Washington County Gaming Commission, a local charity has not started the youth wrestling program it promised. Despite the delay, the Hagerstown Area Police Athletic League plans to ask the Gaming Commission for another $27,000 next week. Gaming Commission Chairman Lou Thomas said he'll ask the league to explain the delay on Feb. 2, when the nonprofit group is scheduled to have a hearing before the commission. League President Brett McKoy said his group has had problems starting the program, but said it will soon open at the Hagerstown Fairgrounds' Clubhouse.

Work should begin this fall to renovate the clubhouse at Hagerstown Fairgrounds so it can temporarily house the Police Athletic League, said City Planner Ric Kautz. It would be cheaper and faster to make the clubhouse handicap accessible than to renovate the jockey's quarters, city staff told the mayor and City Council on Tuesday. Renovating the jockey's quarters would cost $107,218 compared with the expected $5,000 to fix the clubhouse, Kautz said. The athletic league would use the clubhouse for youth activities.

marlob@herald-mail.com Five years ago, Brett McKoy and Guy McCartney started the Hagerstown Area Police Athletic League on a shoestring budget. Now McKoy, a Hagerstown City Police officer, has become the league's first full-time director, thanks to a recent grant through the Community Partnership for Children and Families. The five-year grant provided $19,000 in start-up money for equipment and supplies followed by $40,000 a year for the remainder of the grant period for McKoy's salary and benefits, Lt. Gary Spielman of the Hagerstown City Police said.

By CLYDE FORD Staff Writer, Charles Town CHARLES TOWN, W.Va. - Charles Town Police Sgt. R.J. James stood in front of about a dozen teenagers as they diligently took notes about the drug laws in West Virginia. The teenagers were members of Charles Town Police Department's Law Enforcement Explorer Post 254, a Boy Scout organization aimed at giving young people a chance to study police work. The group directed traffic at last year's African-American festival, worked crowd control during a parade, and eventually will ride along with police officers on patrol.

tarar@herald-mail.com A Washington County organization has pulled state grant funding from the Hagerstown Area Police Athletic League, stating the youth-based program wasn't complying with after-school requirements set forth in the grant, the county group's director said Thursday. The move puts City Police Officer Brett McKoy out as the league's paid full-time coordinator and back to patrolling the streets of Hagerstown as of July 1, McKoy said. He said morning and afternoon "open sessions" for elementary and middle school students offered by the Police Athletic League will be canceled because he won't have the time to administer them.
