While the portion of the Marcellus Shale in Washington County probably isn't developable for natural gas, drilling in Garrett County, Md., might affect recreation here, including fishing, hunting, hiking and snowmobiling, Maryland environmental officials said Monday. Drilling for gas in the Marcellus Shale could affect wildlife and aquatic life, forest habitats and important streams because most of the areas in Garrett County leased for future drilling contain at least one priority natural resource area, according to an environmental presentation Monday to a state advisory commission at Hagerstown Community College.

As Irene Giffin was crossing Leitersburg Pike's northbound lanes in her motorized wheelchair in a crosswalk, vehicles coming out of a shopping center would pass in front of or behind her, the Hagerstown resident said. “At one time, it was so close to me I could touch the car and it scared the living bejeebers out of me,” said Giffin, who uses a red flag that flies 3 feet to 4 feet above her wheelchair when she is in traffic situations. Giffin said she thought at first she made a mistake or the traffic signals' synchronization was mixed up. But each time the electronic pedestrian sign gave her the go ahead to cross, the traffic signal turned green for traffic leaving both Long Meadow Shopping Center and Stone House Square.

Nurses who have been out of the profession for a number of years must be retrained before they can enter the health care field again. Susan Lee wants to do what she can to fill that need at Hagerstown Community College. Lee is the new health care program manager in the continuing education department at the college, where people preparing to re-enter the health care field can obtain their training in a hospital-like setting. Because Lee was just hired to her vacant position in January, the nurse refresher course was not offered last fall, Lee said.
