HAGERSTOWN - It's an area that is home to slinking cats, weed-filled lots, parked truck trailers, abandoned buildings, public housing, industrial businesses and houses - many of which have been converted into apartments. Potential is an intangible that some also see in the area. This week a group of professionals - a professor of planning and architecture, an economic development specialist, a sustainable urban design specialist, a landscape architect, a downtown development and revitalization consultant, and a historic preservation specialist - will be in Hagerstown, studying a roughly 25-acre area bordered by Potomac Street, Summit Avenue, Baltimore Street and a small creek often called Marsh Run, said Sharon Disque, executive director of the Hagerstown Neighborhood Development Partnership.

Washington County Public Schools spokeswoman Carol Mowen said officials met in a command center to determine what response was needed. Officials would not say Monday why the school was locked down, and Hagerstown Police said the matter was under investigation. Procedures like the one used at Pangborn Elementary School did not exist in the county before a safety and security specialist/risk manager position was developed in 2003.

waynesboro@herald-mail.com WAYNESBORO, Pa. - Sherry London is really busy, but she's not complaining. Instead, the drug and alcohol prevention specialist is excited about all the programs available to students and parents of the Waynesboro Area School District. London feels that only the shared efforts of students, family and community will combat substance abuse among local students who have scored higher than the state average for lifetime use. Students of all ages are given the chance to participate in existing, new and developing programs, such as one where they will address state legislators at the Capitol in Harrisburg, Pa. "If they are offered a cigarette or a drug, they're going to think 'I went to the Capitol,'" said London.
