waynesboro@herald-mail.com One of Sandy Hook's earliest recollections as chief of staff in the Waynesboro office of Pennsylvania Rep. Pat Fleagle is of a man calling to ask if Fleagle would get a dead cat off the road. "A guy and his mother were walking along a state highway and they came upon this dead cat," Hook said. "They called the office and asked if Pat could come and take care of it. " Hook, 53, started working for Fleagle, R-90th, in January 1989, a week after Fleagle was sworn in for his first two-year term.

Residents of Sandy Hook might not know much about how their little town sprang at the base of Elk Ridge at the southern tip of Washington County, but the houses seem to know. Lined up like sentinels on one side of the narrow, gravelly Sandyhook Road, the houses, many more than 100 years old, all face the same direction, their windows gazing out over layers of American history: the road, the railroad, the C&O Canal and the Potomac River. Today, these features bring in more hikers and paddlers on weekends than the town has residents, giving Sandy Hook its identity as a place to hike into from the C&O Canal towpath or the Appalachian Trail for a soda or to put a raft in the river.

SANDY HOOK ? A man dove through a window to escape a fire Friday night on Sandy Hook Road, but did not sustain serious injuries, said Ronnie Gray, chief of the Potomac Valley Volunteer Fire Co. Gray said the man dove through a first-floor window of the 18804 Sandy Hook Road home after his attempts at escaping through the doors failed in the reported 10:58 p.m. blaze. The man, Clayton Mills, sustained cuts on his body, but refused medical treatment at the scene, Gray said. Gray said fire marshals believe a space heater was responsible for the fire, which took about two hours for crews to control.

Hinting that a 24-acre site in the Sandy Hook area never should have been rezoned from conservation to business general more than 20 years ago, the Washington County Planning Commission voted Monday night not to recommend it now be changed to residential rural. "If there is any change, it should go back to conservation," said commission member George Anikis, adding that he knows that's not going to happen. The 23.93 acres proposed for the zoning change is owned by Sylvia and William Martin, who have asked that the land along the south side of Keep Tryst Road, east of U.S. 340 and north of Sandy Hook Road, be rezoned from business general to rural residential.

SANDY HOOK -- Building a 190-foot microwave radio tower near the intersection of Keep Tryst and Sandy Hook roads in South County is the only viable option to bring the county's emergency communications up to standard, county officials said at an informational meeting Wednesday night. About 60 people attended the meeting at Pleasant Valley Elementary School, some of whom said they left with unanswered questions about whether the county had explored all of the alternatives. The free-standing, lattice tower will be the southernmost of a series of 10 strategically placed radio towers that officials say are necessary to improve radio communications for law enforcement, fire and emergency services personnel.
