HAGERSTOWN - Washington County residents turned out Monday night to oppose a Hagerstown man's request to rezone his property to allow the possible construction of a strip mall between I-70 and U.S. 40 east of Hagerstown. About 25 of the 100 people who attended a joint meeting of the Washington County Commissioners and Washington County Planning Commission expressed their disapproval. None of the speakers supported Kent N. Oliver's proposal to rezone 60 acres near Beaver Creek and White Hall roads from agricultural to highway-interchange usage.

marlob@herald-mail.com Just when the volunteers at the soon-to-be displaced Williamsport Food Bank were struggling with the possibility of shutting down temporarily, their prayers were answered. "We were wringing our hands when we heard from Don and Todd Bowman of D.M. Bowman Inc.," said Mary Anna Kline, food bank director. "They learned of our need from the newspaper story last month. " The result is that the food bank will have, for nine months, the free use of a 1,500-square-foot space in the Bowman strip mall that faces Interstate 81, Kline said.

WAYNESBORO, Pa. - The Borough of Waynesboro has started the process that could bring a new crosswalk to Pa. 16 connecting the Waynesboro Mall parking lot with the houses on and around Sunnyside Avenue. "It would come right straight across Main Street and be just west to the entrance of the Kmart," Borough Engineer Kevin Grubbs said. The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation must review the borough's application and then approve the idea for it to happen, he said. Doug McCullough, of Summit Avenue in nearby Eastland Hills, said he presented the Waynesboro Borough Council with the crosswalk request twice in the past 18 months.

Businesses convinced that flashy signage is a requirement for success might look to the new Cafe del Sol on Salem Avenue for contrarian evidence. Due to the area's interminable permitting process, the Italianish restaurant has yet to hang a proper shingle, instead relying on a loose banner draped over the window announcing its existence. No matter. A packed house on a recent Friday night demonstrated it's the product that matters, and if you offer great food at a great price, customers will find your door.
