Smithsburg Police Chief George Knight told the town council Tuesday night that he has written a letter to a resident on North C and P Lane about cleaning up his property. Conditions at the property are "deplorable" and include 55-gallon drums sitting around along with tires and a junk car, according to Knight. Knight said he has given the man who lives at the house 60 days to clean up the property, a time limit that is about to expire. The Smithsburg Town Council gave Knight the authority to contact the town's attorney to try to resolve the issue.

GREENCASTLE, Pa. -- The Greencastle-Antrim School Board moved closer Thursday night to expanding the public comment session of its regular meetings to include comments on non-agenda items. The board looked at expanding the session, formally called "Recognition of Citizens" on the agenda, to allow people to speak on issues and concerns and to ask questions on non-agenda items without seeking prior approval to do so. Current policy allows the public to speak on agenda items, but they must be granted permission from Superintendent C. Gregory Hoover prior to the meeting to speak on items not on the agenda.

Two weeks ago, I wrote a column about how Warren Gove of Middletown, Md., was set to compete for the first time in the Manhattan Island Marathon Swim in New York. The 51-year-old Gove, who trains at the Hagerstown YMCA, seemed confident about his fitness, but a tad bit nervous about the challenge - 28 1/2 miles of nonstop swimming without a wetsuit in 65-degree water with a time limit of only 9 1/2 hours. He had never swum farther than 4.4 miles at one time. Now, there's a Part 2 to the story.

Remarkable help To the editor: Sometimes in life we go through situations and circumstances, such as depression, suicidal tendencies, loneliness, feeling unwanted, etc., where we receive emotional, spiritual, and intellectual help from others. And many times we do not take the time to be appreciative of those who truly helped us in our hour of need. Although it is long overdue, that is what I wish to do today. There are two whom I need to thank with all my heart for helping me through this past year when I was depressed and then later attempted suicide (but for a different reason)

“I wanted to mention that I think that the picture in the Tuesday, April 17, in Section B of the girls that are from Martinsburg, and they're just sunbathing, I think that the angle is ridiculous. ... I think he got a very obscene shot of that young woman.” - Hagerstown “I think The Herald-Mail should do an article explaining 'Obamacare' and what it really means. Maybe once people see that they will be forced to purchase health insurance, what the coverage actually will entail and what their costs will really be, they may think twice about whether or not this is a great gift to our country and our people.
