I have been fighting for child support, and all's I get from the child support agency is 'Good luck, he is in Michigan and we cannot get him.' They have been catering to him also. He left Hagerstown ... left a $20-hour-something job. ... They did intercept his taxes, and he has a contempt of court hearing in September, but they say unless he does not show up for that, it depends on your case worker what they will do.

HAGERSTOWN -- Educators and business people on Monday celebrated a partnership that helps adults and teenagers learn trades. It's been about two years since the Cumberland Valley Chapter of Associated Builders and Contractors moved its training program into the Barr Construction Institute on North Locust Street in Hagerstown. On Monday, teachers, students and supporters gathered there to share praise and success stories. Students Nick Hevener and Aaron Divel explained and demonstrated refrigeration and cooling to the lunch audience, which gathered in a tent for Partners in Education Appreciation Day. Anthony Shumaker evoked laughter from the crowd when he said, "The only reason I came to Barr was to get out of going to Clear Spring High School during the day. " But, as he learned more about heating, ventilation and air conditioning, Shumaker decided he liked it. He credited his teachers.

Trade has gotten away from us, and the reason is we have gotten away from trade. Strictly speaking, to trade is to exchange goods/services for other goods/services of equal value. Any transaction that is unbalanced can be partially trade, but must be partially the unilateral access of one party to the markets of the other. So if you sell me $1,000 worth of computers, and I sell you $1,000 worth of soybeans - that's trade. But if you sell me $1,000 worth of computers, and I only sell you $500 worth of soybeans - that's half trade and half my gift to you of $500 worth of access to my home market.

SHARPSBURG -Although no construction was being performed Saturday at the Washington County Agricultural Education Center, cranes, backhoes and excavators filled its grounds. More than 800 people showed up for the annual Cumberland Valley Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC) trade show at the agricultural center, where suppliers showed off their most recent construction models, employers fielded questions about contract work and families feasted on food. Joyce Schill, 40, of Williamsport, said that she came to the show because her husband works for Building Systems Inc. and the couple thought the day would be fun. She watched as children flopped around in an inflated "moon" room placed on a grassy patch near the center's pavilions.

After Republicans in the Pennsylvania House decided last week they wouldn't vote on a bill to cut school property taxes - despite the House leadership's approval - the prospect of resolving this issue any time soon went up in smoke. And, just as is the case when the smoke clears from a house fire, something worse became visible. Some in the House now want to cut school property taxes by increasing the state sales tax. No, they're not kidding, but the GOP-controlled Pennsylvania Senate is not likely to go along.
