Before you go: Consult a travel medicine clinic or your doctor as soon as possible before the trip. The World Health Organization (WHO) suggests going four to six weeks before the trip. If vaccinations are needed, this will allow time for the body to build up immunity or allow time if a series of shots are required, says Dr. Ted Sofish with Occupational Health Associates in Chambersburg, Pa. This visit to the doctor also will help you determine what medical items you'll need to take.

Which story should have had prominent play? To the editor: I read today's Herald-Mail (Thursday, Aug. 18) and absorbed the front page article on the peace vigils (more like vigils for defeat) held on behalf of activist Cindy Sheehan. I then found an article about a mother of another fallen soldier, who encouraged America to stand by its mission and principles at her son's funeral. Unfortunately, I stumbled across this article buried on page A-7. Is it mere coincidence that defeatism and positions that undermine the safety, security and mission of our troops get front-page attention, while a mother who lost her son to the war expresses her pride and immense respect for her son, his colleagues and their noble mission gets buried near the back?

julieg@herald-mail.com WASHINGTON COUNTY - Local drivers are unexpectedly paying less at the pumps for a gallon of gas heading into a busy traveling holiday weekend, according to AAA. Gasoline retailers usually raise prices heading into Thanksgiving week in anticipation of high demand, AAA Mid-Atlantic spokeswoman Myra Wieman said. Instead, prices have dropped over the last few weeks thanks to a large supply of gasoline, mild weather and the arrival of weapons inspectors in Iraq, Wieman said.

pepperb@herald-mail.com TRI-STATE - A potential war with Iraq, strikes in Venezuela and OPEC nations that are tightening the belt on crude oil supplies are among the factors leading to higher prices at gas pumps, and things may get worse, according to a AAA spokeswoman. "In a state of war, you never know," said Myra Wieman, spokeswoman for AAA Mid-Atlantic. Gas prices in Hagerstown increased about 10 cents in the last month. The $1.45 per gallon average price of self-service regular unleaded gasoline in Hagerstown Friday was higher than the $1.09 it was a year ago, but lower than in May 2001, when prices rose to $1.63, she said.

Each Sunday, a sampling of edited reader comments will run in The Herald-Mail. Last week, there were two poll questions. The first question was: What steps are you taking to conserve gasoline? "We are not suffering a gas shortage. We are the victims of corporate greed. " "If people would just slow down 3 to 4 mph, we would save millions of barrels of oil. Even truckers are starting to reduce their speed (somewhat)

scottb@herald-mail.com While some people are complaining about rising gas prices, Don Watson of Newfoundland is not one of them. "You guys are cheap," Watson said Tuesday of local gas prices. Watson, in the United States to attend a wedding, was pumping gas at the AC&T on Halfway Boulevard. Gas there was selling for $2 a gallon for regular, $2.08 for mid-grade and $2.16 for premium. Gasoline is much more expensive in Newfoundland at $1.10 per liter, he said.
