"The caller from Williamsport says that President Obama is the only president who thinks he never makes mistakes. George W. Bush was asked what was his worst mistake, and replied that he couldn't remember making any. " - Chambersburg, Pa. "I'm calling about the child support issue. I'm a grandmother who is disabled, raising a grandchild. Both parents pay child support. The father's support had his cut in half, but it's like this. If the mother is working and making more money, then she shouldn't receive child support, if the father can prove that he can't do it. Just like if the father has the child, the father should be paid the child support by the mother.

CHARLES TOWN, W.Va. -- Near the turn of this century, Christopher "Cricky" Shultz had a developer's vision for a tract of land where four roads converge north of downtown Charles Town. He was going to call it Windmill Crossing. Shultz's development at the intersection of U.S. 340, Country Club Road, Somerset Boulevard and Marlowe Road, began to take shape mid-decade when he razed a century-old brick four-square farmhouse to make room for a 200-unit town home development. Today off Marlowe Road, most of the homes in that project are built and lived in. An Aldi grocery store anchors the corner of Somerset Boulevard and Marlowe Road.

When people think of fundraisers, a shoot-a-thon might not be the first thing that comes to mind. This year, however, the Heritage Academy shoot-a-thon was a great success. In order to participate, students had to have sponsors and raise at least $50. Students then had 10 minutes to make as many baskets as possible. The third-grade class raised the most money in the elementary, and had the opportunity to play a basketball game against the varsity team, whose members were only allowed to use one hand.

Stranger sets good example for grandsons To the editor: Recently, I did what I find myself doing on occasion. I left my pink wallet at home on the computer stand after working online with some finances. Later, I took my 7- and 10-year-old grandsons to Sheetz on Dual Highway to get some lunch sandwiches for them. As I went to the counter to pay for their orders, I discovered that once again I had left my pink wallet at home and had only one dollar in my pocketbook.
