Williams campaigns for information By TARA REILLY / Staff Writer The next Washington County School Board election is more than a year away, but Russell Williams says he has two reasons to file his candidacy early. One was to get his name out well in advance for the 2002 election, and the other was to have full access to the informational packets given to the board before meetings. Williams, 57, received the packets as a candidate last year, but said he was told by Schools Superintendent Herman Bartlett after the November election - in which he failed to win a seat by 749 votes - that because he was no longer a candidate, he could not receive the information unless he paid 10 cents per page.

David Limbaugh undeserving of attack To the editor: On Monday, Dec. 26, this newspaper published a letter to the editor entitled “ Is David Limbaugh a 21st-century Westbrook Pegler? ”  Its writer, Russell Williams, states that Limbaugh “is attempting to scare the American people by telling them that the liberals, the intelligensia, the educated people, people with master's degrees and doctoral degrees are attempting to destroy the country.” I give Williams credit for not truly believing what I believe he implies - that only Democrats and liberals are “the intelligensia, the educated people, people with master's degrees and doctoratal degrees.” Factually, Limbaugh earned a Bachelor of Arts degree (Cum Laude)

TRI-STATE - Had he lived, the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. would be celebrating his 78th birthday Monday. Although the civil rights leader's life was cut short 39 years ago, an assassin's bullet failed to quiet his message or stop his mission to see that "all men are created equal" was more than just a phrase in the Declaration of Independence. "I grew up in Hagerstown, and you couldn't go a lot of places around here," said 89-year-old Isaac Doleman, referring to his early years in Washington County.
