Police search for taxi hijackers A Turner Transportation driver who was forced to drive two men to New York City a week ago has helped Maryland State Police come up with composite drawings of her two abductors. Lisa Reigh picked the two men up at Town Pizza on Franklin Street in Hagerstown about 10:30 a.m. on Nov. 30. She took them to the International House of Pancakes in the Centre at Hagerstown. The men said they would be needing a ride to the Baltimore area about 45 minutes later, so Reigh called her dispatcher to plan it.

tammyb@herald-mail.com HAGERSTOWN It was an antique car lover's dream. Literally. The big yellow taxi, crafted in 1925 by Hagerstown's M.P. Moller Motor Car Co. for service in New York City, finally found its way home - and in grand style. But it had traveled a circuitous route to get there. Car buffs gathered under gray skies Saturday morning at the Miller House Carriage Museum in downtown Hagerstown as the family of Richard "Scratcher" Hammond officially donated the last known Astor taxicab to the Washington County Historical Society.

gregs@herald-mail.com Some drivers were pulled over last week in a new police initiative, but not for bad driving. A state inspector and a Hagerstown City Police officer teamed up to begin targeting for-hire drivers, their cars and the companies for whom they drive. There are no companies within the City of Hagerstown that provide a true taxi service, one in which a cab can be hailed from the curbside. But taxi-like for-hire transportation services have drawn criticism from some city officials who complained about what they said appear to be cars that are not well-maintained.

When the Washington County Board of Education announced its new transportation policy for this school year, images of sledgehammers and gnats came to mind. True, the 25-year-old policy was probably in need of some fine tuning, but the rigid result certainly smacks of overkill. The board's hard-line response to inconvenienced parents, which basically amounted to "deal with it," is probably a residual from the tremendous about of heat laid on the board last year, when a 5-year-old was dropped off far from his home.
