HAGERSTOWN -- Richard Graceson, 64, remembers when a bottle of Coke cost 10 cents, a price that has risen with time, but a new tax threatens to increase the price of both soft drinks and alcoholic beverages. The U.S. Senate Finance Committee is considering raising taxes on alcohol and imposing a new levy on soda and other naturally sweetened drinks to help pay for overhauling health care. "I would agree with (raising the taxes)," Graceson said. "The way health care is now, they have to do something about it. " Graceson said his doctors have told him to cut back on the amount of soft drinks he consumes daily, but that advice has not quenched his thirst.

In a tradition that has lasted nearly 30 years, school bands, kids dressed in Halloween costumes and fire engines slowly made their way down Baltimore Street Thursday night in the town's annual Halloween parade. And as usual, youths in the bands and costumed kids who walked in the parade were treated to a meal afterward at the American Legion, Post 211. Inside the legion hall, kids crowded around serving lines for chicken nuggets, chips, cookies, soft drinks and candy, while outside members of the South Hagerstown High School and E. Russell Hicks marching bands were treated to hot dogs and soft drinks under a pavilion.

Lay off the cola To the editor: I read with interest the recent article, "Cola wars are back in high gear. " It seems that soda sales fell about 4.8 percent in the U.S. during the first nine months of last year. Cocoa-Cola's U.S. soft drink sales fell 4.4 percent in the same period. I hope this indicates that the U.S. population is getting smarter about knowing that soft drinks are empty calories, with no nutrition and are one of the greatest causes of obesity.

Mary Poppins said, "A spoonful of sugar makes the medicine go down. " The problem is that Americans are eating, and drinking, too many spoonfuls of sugar for good health. Based on U.S. Department of Agriculture surveys, Americans average 20.5 teaspoons of added sugars per day. That's 68.5 pounds per year. Added sugars are sugars and syrups added to foods in processing or preparation. This does not include the naturally occurring sugar in foods like fruit or milk. In some age groups, sugar intake is even higher.

Writer has a serious concern for the country To the editor: I am responding to the letter by Pastor Raymond Young published in The Herald-Mail on Oct. 5. Though I'm not as well versed in scripture, I seem to recollect that God gave Lucifer temporary dominion over the earth when he cast him from heaven. Using the reverend's analogy, all those who gave respect to Hitler did the right thing for he was in authority and appointed by "God. " I disagree strongly. To begin with, an individual has to earn respect for it to be rendered honorably unto him. That is not to say that deserving groups such as police officers, firefighters and soldiers should not be respected as a group for the good they do, as well as teachers and the like.

With local grocery stores and convenience stores selling sodas and other drinks with questionable health value, you'd think bottled water would be dependably clean and safe.  This might not be the case. According to a 1999 report by the National Resources Defense Council, 20 percent of bottled water in America contains xylene and styrene ? two chemicals known or suspected to cause cancer. The report is online at the NRDC Web site at www.nrdc.org/water/drinking/bw/exesum.
