“The county commissioners are out of control. Joe Lane, along with Kristin Aleshire and Terry Baker, would have done wonders in saving Washington County taxpayers their hard-earned money. We need a change, starting at the top. How did you vote? Think about it.” — Hagerstown “I hope this gentleman from Hancock who wrote in here about his family all being Republicans and that the Republicans give everybody everything and they don’t lie, well, I got news for him. He better read it again and he better think again, because all of them, Republicans and Democrats, they all lie. They tell you what you want to hear, and then when you vote for them and get them in there, they do not do what they say they were going to do.” — Falling Waters, W.Va.

WASHINGTON COUNTY -- In Washington County Public Schools, one of the newest teachers on campuses this year is the cafeteria. Here, students are learning how to be ecofriendly. Gone are disposable items, such as trays, plates, cups and utensils. Now, instead of the trash can, most tableware heads to the dishwasher. And the paper milk cartons familiar to several generations of students? They've been replaced by plastic bottles. There also are recycling bins for paper, plastic and aluminum, which are carted away to a co-mingled Dumpster.
