shappell@herald-mail.com Deep concern has given way to renewed hope for the Shockey/Heise family as 5-year-old Shania Shockey's condition appeared to improve seven days after she was rushed back to Children's Medical Center from a Baltimore rehabilitation center. Doctors say the latest complications caused by the severe head injuries the Hagerstown girl suffered last month after being struck by a van may not prove to be a major setback. Shania was listed in serious condition Friday at Children's Medical Center in Washington, a hospital spokesman said.

GREENCASTLE, Pa. - The Antrim Township Board of Supervisors approved proposed changes to its Land Use Permit procedures Tuesday night in an effort to make sure all new residential dwellings are within setback requirements prior to construction. The township previously had residential dwellings surveyed "as-built" to check that buildings met setback requirements. This means the dwelling is surveyed after it is built. "As-built is after the fact," said Supervisor Curtis Myers.

Veterans home killed By LAURA ERNDE laurae@herald-mail.com Washington County veterans were disappointed Wednesday by yet another setback in their 14-year struggle to get the state to build a local nursing home for them. A Maryland General Assembly committee balked at spending $75,000 to study the need for a veterans home in Western Maryland. "They keep turning it down and turning it down. One of these days they might have a war and then they'll remember the veterans," said Jim Sprecher, president of the Washington County Joint Veterans Council, who learned the news Wednesday.

The internal fortitude that makes Josh Conway a tough competitor is being tested again, much to his chagrin. On May 15, 2012, the former Smithsburg star had Tommy John surgery for a complete tear of the ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow while pitching at Coastal Carolina University. Conway, who turned 22 last month, was still drafted as a pitcher by the Chicago Cubs in the Major League Baseball Draft and went through an extensive rehab process at the Cubs' spring training complex in Mesa, Ariz.

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- California officials on Wednesday called off the scheduled execution of a convicted murderer after setbacks in federal and state courts. The attorney general's office said in a court filing that it can no longer proceed with the lethal injection of Albert Greenwood Brown at 9 p.m. Thursday. It would've been California's execution since 2006. "I'm relieved," said John Grele, one of Brown's attorneys. "This was a hastily designed plan. " The announcement came a day after a federal judge blocked the execution, saying he needed more time to evaluate the state's newly adopted lethal injection procedures.
