The curb and gutter relocation project on U.S. 11 (Virginia Avenue) and Lincoln Avenue in Halfway was expected to be finished Thursday afternoon, according to Albert Culley, consultant engineer for the Maryland State Highway Administration. Culley says the project has been going on for three weeks. "We've had so much rain that we couldn't get a lot of work done some days," he said. "Luckily, the weather has been nice this week. " The project has involved tearing up the original curb on the northeastern corner of the intersection of U.S. 11 and Lincoln Avenue and putting a new curb closer to the house there.

A committee studying the possible relocation to downtown of the Washington County Board of Education offices met for the first time Wednesday, but a possible location was not discussed. According to School Board President Paul Bailey, the meeting at Hagerstown City Hall did not result in any recommendations. The group discussed how the idea evolved into a proposal. "We talked about how we got to where we are now," Bailey said. Last August, State Sen. Donald F. Munson, R-Washington, sent Gov. Parris Glendening a letter asking him to support the move, saying it would help revitalize downtown.

WAYNESBORO, Pa. - Plans have been abandoned concerning the relocation of Beartown Road east of Rouzerville, Pa. The Washington Township Supervisors made the decision Monday, after an affected property owner pushed for expediency on the supervisors' proposal to move the road about 250 feet west. "Honestly, it would be better for me if this was dropped," John Hampton said. Supervisor Carroll Sturm said a traffic engineer felt the relocation wouldn't improve the slope problems near Mentzer Gap Road anyway.

It's a story as old as the hills and valleys of Western Maryland. People live alongside the rivers and streams, sometimes because they want to, but just as often because nobody wants to buy their flood-prone properties. And so they stay, forcing the government to spend disaster-relief money again and again. Now comes a group poised to write a new ending for this sad tale. It's the Maryland Governor's Flood Mitigation Task Force, which met this week in Frostburg to discuss what's been accomplished and what steps its feels are still needed to keep citizens out of harms' way. The task force's big success story was the state-funded project in Westernport, which successfully persuaded 27 of 28 targeted homeowners to relocate by offering them 30 percent more than the value of their homes to cover relocation costs.

BOE decision might be short-sighted for county To the editor: The Washington County Board of Education's preference for the Downsville Pike location for its new offices, and potentially a new school, might be short-sighted for Washington County. While there is apparently no strong interest in developing the Potomac Edison property commercially at the present time, the mere transfer of a number of employees from one place in the county to this site effectively eradicates its potential as a job-creation engine for generations.

Mold found in air-conditioning units in the Martinsburg Veterans Affairs Medical Center's domiciliary prompted the hospital to relocate patients and staff last week, officials said Monday. The domiciliary was closed Friday after safety officials at the hospital found “common” mold in the fan coils of the air conditioners, the medical center said. “During the cleanup process, the delivery of care to our patients and the medical center's daily operational activities will not be interrupted,” Ann R. Brown, medical center director, said in a news release.

Occasionally, good intentions can be taken to the extreme. We thank past Washington County boards of education for putting students first, and milking every drop of use out of the rickety old central office complex on Commonwealth Avenue. We also congratulate the current board for knowing when to say enough. The school board decided last week that it will not renovate the aging campus, which is nearly $5 million behind in maintenance needs, a sum Superintendent Clayton Wilcox said could easily double in the near future.
