Spring is here! Along with the many wonders of spring comes the dubious task of spring-cleaning. Whether you're spring-cleaning is a top to bottom thorough cleaning or just a light cleaning, be sure to include your kitchen cupboards, the refrigerator and the freezer. In cupboards and pantries: -- Organize your canned goods and other non-perishable foods so that the older products are in front. Check expiration and use-by dates and discard any food that has expired or is past its prime.

REACH's annual spring fling is scheduled for Saturday, April 22. The event sets aside a few hours to help elderly and disabled residents of Potomac Towers or Walnut Towers do some spring cleaning - like flipping mattresses, washing windows, mopping and other cleaning chores - not easily done by many of the residents. Each year, 50 to 90 youth and adult volunteers get together from 9 a.m. to noon and make a difference helping with these chores. In this way, youth groups and civic clubs reach out and touch lives.

The town is mourning the loss of past mayor and friend of Funkstown, Bob Kline.  Kline served as mayor for 28 years, as well as serving on the Washington County Board of Education. He was known for fairness, as well as toughness. Bob and his wife, Reatha, were married for 62 years and raised three children. Many of Kline's accomplishments could easily be shared in credit with his wife, who was as much a blessing to this small town as Bob. His accomplishments were many, and his kindness was boundless.  He was a great man who will be missed indeed.

A young volunteer came from the community room, cradling a box of cleaning supplies in her arms. "I think we're on the ninth floor," Brittany Stranathan said to her friends waiting for her near the elevators. The 16-year-old Boonsboro High School student waited patiently in a hallway crowded with teenagers who were armed with paper towels and bottles of glass cleaner. Only a few people at a time could fit on the elevator, so it would be a while until everyone could get their chores started.

I do not spring clean the way my mom did. I remember the cool, sunny days when she would throw open the windows, shove the furniture aside and take down the drapes. She'd snap on her bright yellow gloves, grab a rag, and have a go at the ceiling, walls and floors with Spic-n-Span. She went room to room, day after day, in a ritual passed down from her mother. I've had the urge to clean with such fervor less than a handful of times in my life. Each time it happened, I was nearly ready to give birth and chalked it up to the nesting phenomenon.
