The City of Hagerstown's purchase of a house to rehabilitate for the city's homeownership program could pose a conflict of interest later, said City Councilman Alfred W. Boyer. The council is considering buying the 428 S. Potomac St. house from a group that includes a contractor who has bid on housing rehabilitation projects before, officials said. Boyer said it could be a conflict of interest if the city awards a rehabilitation bid to Milton N. Stamper after buying the house from TKS Properties for $25,000.

Do your homework when transmission work is needed To the editor: I’m writing this to let people be aware of a problem I recently encountered at an auto repair shop. I called one asking if they tested transmissions. They said that they did. I told them what it was doing, took it to them and a couple of days later was told, “We tested the transmission and it’s no good.” What I did wrong was I did not ask if they have the equipment to test it and what is wrong with the old one. So their test was a ‘Fred Flintstone’ test.

Two officials with the Washington County Division of Public Works outlined plans Tuesday night for the rehabilitation of the Coffman Farms Road Bridge over Little Antietam Creek near town hall. The one-lane bridge was built in 1832 and is rated in “poor condition” because of issues such as missing and loose mortar and missing stones, said Andrew Eshleman, a structural engineer for the county. The rehabilitation of the span will cost about $600,000 and 80 percent of the money will come from federal funds, which have been “obligated” for the project, Eshleman said.

A circuit judge deferred the sentencing of a Shepherdstown, W.Va., man who pleaded guilty Thursday to taking part in the 2010 armed robbery of Beck's Kennels in Berkeley County. Ian Michael Derr, 22, pleaded guilty to first-degree robbery and felony burglary in Berkeley County Circuit Court, but can avoid a prison sentence if he successfully completes a rehabilitative education-based program at the Anthony Correctional Center for youthful offenders. The co-defendant in the case, Ronald Dale “Georgie” Whetzel Jr., 17, was sentenced to 40 years in prison in December, but 23rd Judicial Circuit Judge Gina M. Groh concluded Thursday that there was a “marked difference” between Whetzel and Derr, who she said seems to be genuinely remorseful.

Construction is under way to rehabilitate a late 18th-century log house and convert it into business space on the Borough of Mercersburg's square. The building's owners, John and Ame Flannery, hope to have the renovated and expanded Irwin House open by the end of March 2012. The couple owns and operates several other businesses in the area. "It's going to be nice when it's completed," Ame Flannery said. "I'm excited to see it done. " The house, built by Archibald Irwin, was discovered when a 2003 fire destroyed the structure surrounding it. The Mercersburg Borough Council sold the house to the Flannerys for $10,000 in early 2010.
