Housekeeping supervisor feels kinship with mall employees HALFWAY - Come rain, come snow, come sickness, Buddy is always there. As daytime supervisor of the Valley Mall's cleaning crew, Buddy Shenk works six days a week. If someone calls in sick, Shenk comes in then, too. He's even putting off surgery to remove a callus on his foot until he retires in 2002 because it would mean he'd be off his feet and away from work for at least eight weeks. Shenk, 60, of Guilford Avenue in Hagerstown, has worked at the mall for 26 years, starting as a stock boy for McCrory's in 1974.

WAYNESBORO, Pa. - A Washington Township (Pa.) supervisor will complete his term, but he is not allowed to run for his seat again under a decision by the U.S. Office of Special Counsel (OSC). The office sent Chris Firme a letter saying it decided he didn't knowingly violate the Hatch Act, but said he should not seek re-election. The act prohibits municipal, state and federal employees from being candidates for public office. Firme on Thursday contended that he never had received training about the law, and had approached his supervisor in the Maryland Department of Agriculture about his candidacy in 2003.
