andrear@herald-mail.com Edith Sweigert retired from her post as head of the Washington County Parks and Recreation Department a decade ago, but she never stopped working to better her community and improve the quality of life for its citizens. Sweigert, a woman known as much for her kindness and humility as for her award-winning stewardship of the county's parks system, started volunteering for various causes soon after she retired in early 1993. She does volunteer office work once a week at the State Vocational Rehabilitation Office in Frederick, Md., where her daughter is employed as a counselor.

The Hagerstown City Council voted 5-0 Tuesday to amend a rezoning application for Mount Aetna Road property, which is the subject of a controversial rezoning and annexation request to the city. The amendment would change the underlying zoning designation for the property from R2 to R1. Both are residential zoning designations, but the R1 designation is more restrictive. The change would become a factor only if the land is annexed and development plans for the property, which are being considered separately, are dropped.

The Hagerstown City Council voted 4-0 Tuesday to approve the rezoning of 36.7 acres of farmland along Mount Aetna Road for residential development.
