WASHINGTON COUNTY -- Scenes from a shootout between police and a group of teenage criminals played on the screen as roughly 20 members of the Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC) watched in silence. After the video was over, Washington County Deputy Dan Watson turned to the crowd. "Is this workplace violence?" Watson asked. Watson, who was the guest speaker at the LEPC's semi-annual meeting Thursday morning, used the video to make a point about violence at work. "People think about it as just outbursts or 'going postal,' but workplace violence is very broad," Watson said.

"Someone called in and said we should use nicknames when we call in. I think it would be a great idea for people to use nicknames and then you know who's commenting. I don't know what my nickname would be yet, but I'd find one. " - Hagerstown "The person in Waynesboro, Pa. was talking about the Vietnam War, where Nixon wasn't in there that much time. No, that's right, Johnson was. Johnson didn't start that war and neither did Nixon. President Eisenhower, back in 1955, sent advisory troops over and it just kept growing until it was actually into a war. That's the way it started.

Six to seven years ago, Pam Wagner of Waynesboro was the victim of domestic violence. “I wouldn't have believed it could have happened to me,” Wagner said. “I didn't know where to turn.” When she picked up the phone and called Women in Need, the Waynesboro, Pa., woman said it was a decision that saved her life. “They gave me hope. They gave me another chance at life,” she said. Now, Wagner pays it forward - volunteering with Women in Need of Chambersburg by helping other women move from victim to survivor, just like she did. Wagner's story was one of four survivor tales told during the 20th annual Women in Need Vigil Against Violence held Thursday at St. Paul United Methodist Church.

"To those people who don't believe there is a war on Christmas, please read The Morning Herald for Dec. 20 on Page A9 about Christmas displays. My problem is not with displaying items from other religions, it is when they arbitrarily remove Christian symbols of Christmas from public places. There is nothing wrong with displaying symbols of all religions on public property, including Christian symbols. Many of these public officials have a misguided idea about the separation of church and state which causes these problems in the first place.

Sosa's bat was a big deal To the editor: You should have pulled Donald Kaul's column of June 23. I usually read his work, but now fear that I have lost all confidence in his ethical judgment. 1. Sammy Sosa's illegal bat is a very "big deal" for both the game and Sosa. Sosa has batting records that might some day be historical records in the Hall of Fame. Thousands of Little Leaguers collecting baseball cards, must already wonder if his scores are legitimate.
