The Washington County Board of Education is seeking comment on the proposed dress code policy until Thursday. E-mail comments to the Board of Education at cechodeb@wcboe.k12.md.us or send mail in care of Debbie Cechovic at the board office, 820 Commonwealth Ave., Hagerstown, MD 21740. The Board on Tuesday approved 7-0 its first reading of Washington County Public Schools' first-ever system-wide dress code. Shulamit Finkelstein, co-chair of the Dress Code Task Force, said the need to establish a system-wide dress code came after the Citizens Advisory Council conducted a survey in 1999-2000 that showed various members of the school system and community preferred a consistent code to one that varies from school to school.

CHAMBERBSURG, PA. Nearly 300 students were absent from J. Frank Faust Junior High School on Monday, an apparent reaction to fears generated by a racially tinged incident involving white and Hispanic students Friday that sent 15 students home, school officials said. Two students face possible suspension and juvenile criminal charges after one of them brought a utility knife to school, but Principal Rick Keller said that had nothing to do with Friday's incident or rumors of weapons being brought to school.

pepperb@herald-mail.com Some Bester Elementary School students and their parents say they think wearing school uniforms will help students see themselves as equals, while others say the move is not a good idea.

Other Bester shirts also may be worn. Savanna Remington, 10, said she likes the polo shirts because "they have a pretty bear on them," but said she doesn't want to wear them every day.

We had long since given up eating at Chick-fil-A, but for a reason that had nothing to do with the current unpleasantness. Maybe a year ago, Chick-fil-A unleashed its corporate goons against a Vermont artist who, at the suggestion of a small-town farmer, had produced T-shirts proclaiming “Eat More Kale.” Chick-fil-A said this was an infringement on its “Eat mor chikin” ad campaign. It issued a nasty cease-and-desist letter to the entrepreneur, saying his T-shirts were “likely to cause confusion of the public and dilute the distinctiveness of Chick-fil-A's intellectual property.” Forget that this fellow's “Eat More Kale” shirts had been around for years, and I myself had an “Eat More Possum” bumper sticker on my Ford Econoline van a good 15 years before the phrase caught on in fast-food land.

Youths and adults upset about Chambersburg's head basketball coach being ousted from his job last week have formed a new team - Team Shreffler. On Thursday, they donned blue and green shirts proclaiming “#TeamShreff” during a rally to generate support for Shawn Shreffler. The Chambersburg Area School Board chose to not reinstate Shreffler for the 2012-13 season, in part because of alleged use of profanity around students. Supporters are turning to social media, shirts, yard signs and possibly newspaper advertisements in a quest to have the school board reverse its decision.

Here's what I want to know: Does anybody wear a bra anymore? None of the women I know have mentioned personal lingerie liquidation. Not one woman has said to me, "You know, after years of adhering to a basic standard of feminine apparel, I've decided to toss it to the wind. From now on, no more bra. " Apparently the women's garment industry runs in different circles than I do. I've been doing some end-of-the-summer-season shopping and I am struck by the sparseness of fabric used to make the shirts and dresses offered in a majority of stores.
