It was a sore amid the Chesapeake & Ohio Canal National Historical Park's towpath. The Big Slackwater section of the popular 184.5-mile hiking and biking trail was closed after flooding in 1996 and deteriorated into a treacherous ridge overrun with brambles, thistles and poisonous plants. The 2.7-mile stretch along the Potomac River near Williamsport was the sole disruption in the path that runs from Cumberland, Md., to Washington, D.C. Towpath visitors were detoured off the trail and onto a dangerous route with no shoulders following 4.5 miles along Dam 4, Dellinger and Avis Mill roads.

A ribbon-cutting ceremony was held Nov. 15 for Perfect Stitch Upholstery, more than a year after the business opened at 60 E. Washington St. in Hagerstown, to showcase the renovated building. Washington County and Hagerstown officials attended, along with a representative from the office of U.S. Sen. Barbara Mikulski, D-Md. Owner John Cress said he opened the business in Hagerstown in August 2011, after moving from Frederick, Md., in July of that year. The ribbon-cutting ceremony was not held until recently because Cress said the building he moved into was an “older, abandoned place” when he moved in, and he had to make it look presentable.
