Hagerstown parking lot rededicated By DAN KULIN / Staff Writer A tour bus, not scissors, was used to cut the ribbon at the formal rededication of Hagerstown's Central Parking Lot Tuesday. At about 3:30 p.m. the mayor, City Council members and the Washington County Commissioners rode an Atlantic Coast Charters bus, donated for the occasion, through a red ribbon. The ceremony marked the formal opening of the bigger and better Central Parking Lot. The project was originally the idea of Jack Garrott, who with the help of the Greater Hagerstown Committee sold city and county elected officials on the plan.

WASHINGTON COUNTY andrews@herald-mail.com As Katie Gomez-Kling basked in front of an industrial-sized fan, the air was cool and the prize ribbons were cooler. The ribbons - four blues for first, one red for second - were her rewards for sewing, preserving, growing fruit, drawing and decorating a cake well. Washington County Ag Expo judges bestowed the ribbons upon her. The Ag Expo starts today at the Washington County Agricultural Education Center on Sharpsburg Pike, south of Hagerstown, and ends July 29. Thursday was a day for turning in handiwork and having experts examine it. Outside, tractors were filing in and people were herding pigs, cows and sheep into their respective barns, preparing for upcoming events.

HARPERS FERRY, W.Va. - "Shoot!" U.S. Sen. Robert C. Byrd's command Friday afternoon inside the firing range complex at the U.S. Customs and Border Protection Advanced Training Center on any other day could have sent bullets flying inside the new 65,000-square-foot facility. Instead, one of Byrd's parting words at the ribbon-cutting ceremony for the building was aimed at a cameraman taking pictures of the longtime senator, who played an instrumental role in appropriating millions of dollars for the project.

Bears decorated for kids in distress By LISA GRAYBEAL Staff Writer, Chambersburg SCOTLAND, Pa. - Sewing and stuffing 200 teddy bears wasn't nearly as hard as telling the 50 children who decorated them that they couldn't keep them. But once the children from Child Care Connection day care understood that the bears would be donated to the Chambersburg Police Department to be given out to children in bad situations, most didn't seem to mind. "I think they enjoy it. They always enjoy painting and they know what it's going for," said Frances Strite, a day care provider, as she squirted out more paint on a sheet of waxed paper.

WAYNESBORO, Pa. -- Idling behind a line of politicians and Johnson Controls officials, a tractor-trailer carrying a huge $2 million refrigeration unit waited Thursday afternoon for the ribbon-cutting ceremony marking completion of the CV Avenue reconstruction. The red ribbon cut, the truck eased its way onto Pa. 16, lumbering westward for the natural gas fields of Wyoming. Had the crumbling avenue not been rebuilt and widened, the turn would have probably been impossible. The $425,000 project was paid for with $300,000 in federal funds and $125,000 from the Pennsylvania Infrastructure Bank, said U.S. Rep. Bill Shuster, R-Pa.
