It appears a man who was seriously stabbed in a dispute at 720 W. Franklin St., Tuesday morning had been in a relationship with a woman who was charged in the attack, a Hagerstown Police Department spokesman said. Police said the man was stabbed in the upper left thigh as a result of a domestic dispute that escalated, although it is unclear what the argument was about, said Detective Sgt. Jim Hurd. “He wasn't in any condition to talk to us today,” Hurd said. Hurd said the stab wound was a life-threatening situation because the knife had struck the man's femoral artery in the leg. The man successfully made it through surgery Tuesday afternoon at Meritus Medical Center east of Hagerstown, although he was still in critical condition after the surgery, according to Hurd and Lt. Tom Langston.

Local health care is second to none To the editor: I would like to tell the people who work at the Washington County Hospital that I think the health care you provide us is second to none. I've lived my whole life in this county and am 86 years old, married with three sons, all born in the hospital. Like most families, we experienced many visits to the hospital, my wife had surgery a couple of times, the boys also, you know, removing tonsils, hernias and those kinds of things through the years.
