The scene is close to being set. The original brick walls have been sandblasted and exposed. The black industrial beams have been painted. And a hardwood stage has been added to the bare space. In the next few months, the downstairs of the old Tusing warehouse off Potomac Street will go through its final stages and become downtown Hagerstown's new Academy Theater. "It's always been our dream to have a theater of our own," said Ruth Ridenour, president of Potomac Playmakers.

HAGERSTOWN - As the 25 young graduates of the Blossom School of Etiquette marched into the Memorial Recreation Center auditorium Saturday afternoon, they smiled and seemed confident with their new skills. Ladetra Robinson, program director, said it was a far cry from the girls' first day at the school. "A lot of the girls came in with their heads low and they couldn't talk, but by the end of that first night they would take turns coming in with their heads held high," she said.

For nearly a year, I've been working two or three days a week in the heart of downtown Hagerstown on a variety of projects helping to breathe new life back into our great city. During this time, I've learned a lot about the people who live in and around the square. I wish that our citizens had the opportunity to meet and learn to understand the plight of these fine people, who live in such places as Alexander House, Elizabeth Court, Potomac Towers and Walnut Towers. Around the square, I've forged a friendship with a gentleman who joined the Army at the age of 15 and had earned the rank of captain while serving in Vietnam.

CHARLES TOWN, W.Va. - G.W. Smith helps his clients live in the past. The idea for Smith's business, Back In Time, was sparked when he was sitting in a restaurant made up like a 1950s diner during a business dinner a few years ago. A song came over the jukebox that stirred memories from his teenage years, when he walked on an ocean boardwalk and life was good. "I realized then you can take decorations and music and create a back-in-time vacation," said Smith, 50, of Charles Town.

HAGERSTOWN -- Another piece of the puzzle has been laid to revitalize downtown Hagerstown with the opening of the Academy Theater, Banquet and Convention Center at 58 E. Washington St. On Thursday, co-owners Mike Guessford and Milton Stamper offered a tour of the 30,000-square-foot facility, which once housed the Tusing Warehouse, to about 65 people. Those in attendance split into two groups, taking turns perusing the 208-seat theater on the first floor and a banquet room of equal size upstairs.

When I review a sequel, I usually open by talking about the proud history of the franchise. The history of the "Transformers" franchise is nothing to be proud of.   The '80s cartoon was a glorified toy commercial, the original 2007 film was one of the worst films of that year and the second film in 2009 was one of the worst films of all time.   Yet, even I have to admit, that it's hard not to throw money at movies about giant fighting robots with a knack for explosions and shattering glass.

On Friday, seven vacant buildings in downtown Waynesboro were transformed into works of art at the grand opening celebration of “Destination ARTS!” Destination ARTS!, an initiative of the Arts Alliance of Greater Waynesboro, will continue every Friday, Saturday and Sunday through late October. Andrew Sussman, co-president of the Arts Alliance, came up with the idea. “Walking down the street, I noticed how beautiful the town is, but how many vacant stores there are. It's not something that's a negative reflection on Waynesboro per se. It's something that towns across the country are suffering,” Sussman said.

The plan to transform a former U.S. Army Reserve building in Hagerstown into the permanent home of a Washington County senior activities center took a big step forward Tuesday. The Washington County Board of Commissioners on Tuesday voted unanimously to award to the lowest responsive bidder, Murphy & Dittenhafer Inc., of Baltimore, a $209,430 contract to oversee the eight phases of architecture and engineering of the project at 21 Willard St. The $4.3 million project, which includes an estimated $4.1 million in construction, is expected to be completed in January 2015, county Purchasing Director Karen R. Luther told the five commissioners.
