The Herald-Mail's Editorial Page Advisory Committee proved its worth again prior to the Sept. 12 primary, when members said that candidate William Staley's message was one that shouldn't be ignored. Staley, a School Board candidate and former welding instructor at the county's Technical High School, said that not every student wants to go to college and that the school system should be strengthening, not weakening, trades training programs. School Board members Paul Bailey and Jacqueline Fischer pointed out that between 1994 and 2002, five trades courses were dropped, in large part because of low enrollment.

Every year dozens of Tri-State area residents make money selling their wares at festivals and craft shows. For many of these people the weekend events provide supplemental income. Several festival vendors support their families with such small business ventures. Some may have stores or Internet sites customers can visit. Others work in makeshift workshops in their basements or garages. Then they haul their wares to area parks and events where they try to display their often handmade items in a 10- by 10-foot space that can cost from $125 to $800.

When Anita Stup decided to announce the end of her 16-year career in elected office, she didn't call a press conference, or phone up a favorite reporter. Instead, she took out a quarter-page ad in local newspapers this past Wednesday, to reveal that her current term as a District 3 delegate representing Washington and Frederick counties in the Maryland General Assembly would be her last. Her announcement comes with more than a year left to serve, but she says there's no big mystery behind its timing, nor are there any health problems forcing this decision on her. "I always said I would only serve two terms," Stup said.
