To the editor: In considering the energy problem, I stumbled upon the book "Energy Victory" by Robert Zubrin. I bring it to your attention because he starts with the political fact that Saudi Arabia has us over a barrel. They can charge what they wish and then use the money to support terrorism. Oil is trump in their hand. Then he asks what we can do to get trump back in our hands? He says that we must take the world off the petroleum standard and put it on an alcohol standard.

HAGERSTOWN - Although Kathryn "Kat" Bearese still calls Hagerstown home, there are many places around the world that are, in a way, home to her. Earlham College in Richmond, Ind., where Bearese is a senior psychology major, is one such place. During her college years, she was named a Bonner Scholar, which provided her with scholarship money in exchange for community service. It was a perfect fit for Bearese, 22, who grew up in a global-thinking, service-minded family. The Bearese family lived in the Middle East for six years, first in Saudi Arabia, then Bahrain, when Kat was in elementary and middle school.

laurae@herald-mail.com ANNAPOLIS - Maryland state employees can earn up to three years of extra retirement credits for serving their country as a member of the Maryland National Guard. But guardsman Brian Sharpe of Smithsburg can't get that benefit because he belongs to the West Virginia Air National Guard. His service with the 167th Airlift Wing in Martinsburg, W.Va., doesn't qualify. "In my estimation, this is simply not fair. I find it to be demoralizing we're offering a credit for some National Guard members and not others," said Del. Christopher B. Shank, R-Washington.

Today is Eid al-Adha, the Feast of Sacrifice, the most eminent holiday on the Muslim calendar. It is celebrated on the 10th day of the month of Dul-Hijja, 70 days after the conclusion of the holy month of Ramadan. Eid al-Adha commemorates Abraham's commitment to obey God. The Quran tells how one of Abraham's chief trials was to face God's command to sacrifice his only son as a burnt offering. Abraham prepared to submit to his Lord's will. However, just before Abraham killed his son, God revealed that Abraham's sacrifice had already been fulfilled because Abraham showed that his love for God superceded all others and that he would give up his most loved one for the sake of God. Therefore, God spared Ishmael, and instead allowed Abraham to sacrifice a ram. Directly preceeding Eid al-Adha, millions of Muslims from all around the world gather in the sacred city of Mecca in Saudi Arabia to perform the annual pilgrimage called Hajj.
