This week's question: Is the plan to have a new Washington County Senior Center share space with Girls Inc. a good idea or is there a better site to be considered?

Did your mom ever tell you not to gulp down your food? It's good advice, but according to Del. Robert McKee, R-Washington, some local students must do just that, if they want to have any lunch at all. McKee told the Maryland General Assembly's House Ways and Means Committee this week that some students spend 25 minutes of their half-hour lunch period just standing in line. "Basically, they have five minutes to swallow whole the lunch that they bought," McKee said. McKee's proposed remedy is to extend the lunch period to an hour.

Even though it didn't work well in the Hagerstown City Council race, a group of Western Maryland delegates to the Maryland General Assembly has decided to run as a slate in the 2006 campaign. If the effort forces the candidates to stake out clear and firm positions, that would be a good thing. If it is only a mechanism to raise enough money to bury their foes in a mound of dollar bills, that would not be so good. Like their counterparts in the city, the members of this slate are Republicans.

Last week, Republican Del. Christopher Shank said he would like to "bury the hatchet" with Democratic Del. John Donoghue, his one-time mentor in local politics. Whether Donoghue believes this peace offering is sincere or just Shank's reaction to pressure from the public or other elected officials, we recommend he treat it as genuine, unless or until Shank does something to indicate it isn't. According to Del. Robert McKee, R-Washington, Donoghue is upset because - among other things - Shank supported Paul Muldowney's recent attempt to unseat him. That action was in sharp contrast to Donoghue's decision to stay neutral in Shank's race against Democratic Del. Bruce Poole.

Andrew Serafini is a fantastic choice to replace McKee To the editor: I thoroughly enjoyed the recent series of articles about the appointment of Andrew Serafini to replace Del. Robert McKee. The stories accurately portrayed the essence of the humble, Godly man I have been proud to call friend through his many years of selfless service at Maranatha Brethren Church and Grace Academy. I applaud the Republican Central Committee for their wisdom in selecting such a well qualified man for the job of representing Washington County.
