SMITHSBURG - Kathy Boyd didn't know Smithsburg Police Officer Christopher Shane Nicholson personally, but her 15-year-old son Jeremy did from after-school contact at Smithsburg High School. On Friday night, the school's show choir - including Jeremy Boyd - put on a special benefit concert in memory of Nicholson, who was shot and killed in the line of duty Dec. 19. Money collected in a basket Friday was earmarked for a scholarship fund in Nicholson's name at Williamsport High School, as well as a college fund for the children of Alison Munson, who also was slain Dec. 19 in Halfway, allegedly by a former boyfriend who later shot Nicholson near Smithsburg.

SMITHSBURG Smithsburg High School student Robbie Veil on Friday recounted a brief conversation he had with Smithsburg Police Officer Christopher Shane Nicholson earlier this week.
