tammyb@herald-mail.com ANNAPOLIS - House Speaker Michael E. Busch rejected a request by Del. Christopher B. Shank to observe a moment of silence Tuesday for slain Roxbury Correctional Institution officer Jeffery A. Wroten. Busch, D-Anne Arundel, explained that a moment of silence at adjournment perhaps was not the most appropriate way to recognize the officer. "Traditionally, that is reserved basically for legislators," Busch said. He said a resolution honoring Wroten, and dedication of an invocation to him, would be more appropriate.

The silence is deafening in church scandal To the editor: "When silence replaces the truth, that silence is a lie," the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. said. There is a crisis that has been haunting the Roman Catholic Church since its inception that has raised its ugly head once again. Those of us who love our church are greatly hurt and repulsed that it has become the fodder for late-night comedians and the opening headlines of just about every newscast on all forms of media.

Donte Thomas had the numbers for the Hagerstown Community College men's basketball team on Tuesday, but Jean Eddy Clerius had the only one that really counted. It was Dundalk No. 23 - Devin Colston. Thomas and Colston hooked up in a 3-point shooting exhibition until Clerius ended the showdown with some good, ol' fashioned defense to keep the ball from the nation's top scorer in NJCAA Division II. It was all the Hawks needed to pull away for an 83-66 victory over the Lions on Tuesday in a Maryland JuCo Conference tournament play-in game at HCC's athletic complex.

Coming off a disappointing loss Friday at Flint Hill, the Saints regrouped to stun the Quakers, who had owned a victory over Gonzaga earlier this year and played touted Mount St. Joseph to within four points. “We should never have lost to Flint Hill, but we challenged the kids to work hard and refocused,” said Saint James coach Paul Easton.

We have no particular gripe with the hiring of Andrew Sargent, who will serve as the City of Hagerstown's downtown manager. Certainly there is a need for a personalized approach to attracting new commerce into the city and retaining what's there. We wish Sargent well. What we do take issue with is the manner in which Sargent was introduced into the new position, which is to say that he wasn't introduced at all. City staff, or Sargent himself, didn't appear comfortable making him available for comment until he had a chance to “get settled” into the new position and “up to speed on existing programs and services.” Presumably, Sargent was conversant in the issues facing the downtown or he wouldn't have gotten the job. So what is there to settle?

Acting on legal advice, the Greencastle-Antrim School Board has halted its tradition of opening meetings with the Lord's Prayer and replaced it with a moment of silence. At Thursday night's meeting, however, audience members recited the Lord's Prayer in unison during the moment of silence. Board President Eric Holtzman said the Lord's Prayer has been a mainstay of the board agenda for several decades. “I'm sad to see a tradition that was intended to help the board and the community end because of a court ruling,” Holtzman said.

He faced only 18 hitters, struck out one and allowed only three walks while hitting two batters.

Rendering taps at military funerals is a final way to pay tribute to veterans who have served their country. But what happens when a bugle falls silent? An airman with the West Virginia Air National Guard's 167th Airlift Wing found out firsthand. Or rather, he lent a hand. Senior Master Sgt. Todd Kirkwood, the Wing's avionics supervisor, was augmenting a veterans' color guard team at a funeral recently in Martinsburg for an Air Force veteran who served in World War II, the Korean War and Vietnam.

President Obama struggled to give up his Blackberry after he took office. I remember laughing when I heard that. It's really no laughing matter. It's been five days, 14 hours and 23 minutes since my cellphone was taken away. I left it in the pocket of my shorts last Friday while we were at the beach, fishing. It swims with the fishes. (I always wanted to write that in a column.) I tried to give it CPR. I tried to dry it off. I even tried mouth to mouth. We opted for soaking it in a bag of rice overnight, but it was too late.
