Alfonso Ruiz isn't sure how his mother did it. As a single mother, she would see her three boys off to school, work as many as three jobs, have dinner on the table, oversee homework and see them off to bed. Then, as they drifted off to sleep, she would hit the books. “She was the little engine that could. She just managed to keep on going,” Ruiz said. Susan Ruiz, 55, of Hagerstown, stayed home with her four children when they were young. But when she divorced in 2000, she needed to find a way to support her family.

Sandra Volneck has faced many challenges over the years, but the hardest thing she ever had to do was look at her 15-year-old daughter's battered, lifeless body before closing the casket and burying her. “I wouldn't wish that on nobody. I'll never get over it,” Volneck said last week. “Never.” Twenty-nine years later and recovering from surgery for lung cancer, Volneck still does not know who killed her only child. Maryland State Police recovered Lorraine “Lori” Zimmerman's body from a wooded area outside Boonsboro in April 1984.

Speed cameras immoral but profitable To the editor: I believe Hagerstown speed cameras are in need of serious review. I recently received a “civil penalty” for speeding outside of South Hagerstown High School. When I viewed the photos, it was very clear that the camera made an error based on the distance traveled and the size of my car, so I decided to go to court and present evidence to clear my name. My requests concerning public documents about the legality of the speeding camera in question were completely ignored despite written and oral requests for the records.
