By JENNYLYNN BROWN Staff Writer Thursday was a special day for Bob Dean. It wasn't his birthday - that's on Sept. 13. It wasn't his 58th wedding anniversary - that was July 9. Thursday was the one day in August that his schedule wasn't booked. Dean, 79, donates his expertise to the Service Corps of Retired Executives Association (SCORE) and the AARP 55 Alive Mature Driving program, and, since the 1950s, he has volunteered at Haven Lutheran Church. "I'm starting to feel I've done my share," said Dean, who retired from Antietam Equipment Corp.

katec@herald-mail.com Hagerstown Community College's Robinwood Players will present "Death of a Salesman," Arthur Miller's Pulitzer Prize- and Tony-award-winning 1949 drama. The play is the story of the last day of Willy Loman, a failing traveling salesman. "He's a man way out there in the blue, riding on a smile and a shoeshine," is how he's described in the play's requiem. Jason Morar, who plays Willy Loman, describes him as a total loser, a failure as a father.

WASHINGTON COUNTY -- The Maryland attorney general's office is investigating two local complaints about APX Alarm Security Systems' sales practices in recent months. One complaint came from Betty J. Kline of Hagerstown, who says she repeatedly told a salesman that she can't afford a security system, but he wouldn't budge, so she signed a contract to get him to leave. She said she tried canceling within three days, as the law permits, but APX refused. The salesman was at her home in late June, yet the contract was dated May 29, Kline said.

From the time he was just 12 years old and the only kid on the block wearing one of those sporty blue, college blazers, there was already an indication that there was something special and different about Ralph Lauren. And even as a 23-year-old tie salesman in New York City, Lauren already looked the part of a millionaire, although he was a long way from becoming one. Lauren would make his sales rounds wearing a custom-fit suit and driving a rare Morgan sports car, apparently offering a glimpse into a lifestyle that would someday define him. Every penny Lauren made as a struggling salesman went to clothes and cars, the two indulgences he still fancies today.

Author Kathleen Sharp is very deserving of the plaudits for her masterful portrayal of a complicated and controversial subject. Indeed, one critic rated “Blood Medicine” to be the “best nonfiction book of the past 20 years.” Yet, this book reads more like a Charles Dickens novel with its abundant cast of failed human beings. There are few heroes in this sordid story of so many members of the medical profession who gave way to material gain at the expense of ethical judgment. The medicine of interest was epo (epoetin alpha)
