HAGERSTOWN - In response to the rising cost of asphalt, plans to seal roads and fill cracks are being implemented in the City of Hagerstown. The sealing and filling should preserve payment and extend the life of roads between overlaying, City Engineer Rodney Tissue told the City Council this week. Asphalt, which fluctuates with the price of petroleum, cost the city $30 per ton in 2002 and was up to $55 a ton this summer, Tissue said. "By filling these cracks ... we can extend the life before it deteriorates to where we have to spend big money on overlays," Tissue said.

WILLIAMSPORT - Barry Brown wishes he could say his North Hagerstown girls' basketball team was just toying with Williamsport. He watched a 15-point second-quarter lead evaporate, before solid free throw shooting down the stretch preserved a 52-45 MVAL-Antietam win Tuesday night. "You have to step up to the line when the pressure's on and knock them down," said Brown. "You can play 30 minutes, but if it comes down to foul shots, you've got to make them. " And the Hubs (7-8, 5-3)

December's blast of cold weather provided a test for the tightness of your house. If you had trouble keeping your house warm when the wind was blowing 20 to 30 miles per hour, then now is the time to find ways that you can seal up those cracks that let in air. Keep in mind that little cracks make a big difference. If you have a gap around a storm window that is only one-sixteenth of an inch wide and is 16 inches long, you have a hole that is one inch wide and high. That will let in a lot of cold air. I was raised in an old farmhouse.

laurae@herald-mail.com Del. LeRoy E. Myers Jr. has withdrawn legislation that could have helped Maryland developers avoid expensive architects' fees. A state task force made up of engineers and architects is working on regulations that likely will accomplish the same purpose, said Myers, R-Allegany/Washington. "There was no sense in me clouding the waters," Myers said. Myers' bill would have allowed local permitting offices to waive the architect's seal requirement on plans for storage buildings smaller than 12,000 square feet.

Together again For a while, Del. John P. Donoghue, D-Washington, couldn’t be found at events that Sen. (and former Del.) Christopher B. Shank, R-Washington, attended, including Washington County delegation meetings. But last week, past tensions appeared to have drifted away for a little while. Donoghue and Shank both were at the delegation’s second (and final) scheduled meeting of the session. They laughed at some of the same jokes. Twice, Shank made a motion to submit a delegation bill and Donoghue seconded it. A rekindled legislative friendship, perhaps?

To make school lunches healthier, the U.S. Department of Agriculture has been developing innovative new foods that also help out American farmers by using their surplus of low-demand fruits and vegetables. Kid favorites that might appear on lunch trays this school year include: hamburgers with dried-plum or cherry puree mixed in, barbecue sauce made with raisins or figs, pizza topped with dried-plum sauce, sweet-potato pancakes and cherry applesauce. Foods that didn't make the cut: yogurt-covered cherries, grapefruit juice blend, date-and-almond bars and "broccamole" (broccoli guacamole)

The moment might have been lost on Gilberto Mendez. There was the Hagerstown closer, standing on the mound with bases loaded and two outs with a four-run lead. Domonic Brown, the rehabbing Philadelphia Phillies outfielder, headed to the plate with a chance to tie the game with one swing. Well, so much for drama. Mendez got Brown to ground to second to end the game, allowing the Hagerstown Suns to finish off a come-from-behind 8-4 victory over Lakewood on Monday at Municipal Stadium.

I've been hit hard by the economic downturn in recent years. My 401k has lost so much it's more like a 154c. And do you think The Herald-Mail's sports-hack-in-chief has offered me a pay raise recently? Please. That guy's so cheap he washes his paper plates. So, I've had to take steps to save money wherever I can. Gas prices are so out of hand that I have to pawn part of my collection of Natrone Means football cards every time I need to fill up. Milk is far from free anymore, so I went ahead and bought the cow. Meanwhile, LuSydNa still wonders why I don't want to get married.
