By JULIE E. GREENE Staff Writer The Hagerstown City Council approved a $73 million budget Tuesday after rearranging thousands of dollars to pay for nine new public safety personnel without raising taxes. The vote was 4-1, with Councilman Mark Jameson voting no. Jameson said he didn't think hiring six more police officers would be an effective way to battle drug-related crime. The six officers will form a crime impact team, whose duties will include reducing the city's growing problem with drugs and related violence.

By JULIE E. GREENE Staff Writer Mayor Steven T. Sager said Wednesday his support of Police Chief Dale Jones' request for seven more police officers less than four weeks before the May 20 general election has nothing to do with his Republican challenger's push for additional officers. "Whether or not I get elected, this is needed. I'm glad to see they're even talking to him about this," said Bob Bruchey, the Republican candidate. On Wednesday, Jones asked City Council members to fund six more police officers, a sergeant, a dispatcher and six police vehicles.

In yesterday's edition of The Herald-Mail, reporter Clyde Ford described what happened after Shepherdstown Police Officer Billy Carper decided to pursue a 1997 Ford Mustang with an extra-loud muffler. Instead of stopping when Carper turned on his flashing lights, the vehicle fled. The chase eventually resulted in the capture of two suspects in the murder of Theodore "Ted" Compton, which is a good thing. But there's another point to consider. At one point, the chase reached speeds of 120 miles per hour on W.Va.
