daniels@herald-mail.com The idea behind the Washington County Commission on Aging's annual Senior Fair is to expose senior citizens to the services and products available to ease the aging process. "Part of it is, I think, is they want to make senior citizens aware of all the services that are in the county," said Donald Zilch, who volunteers with the commission and helped plan Thursday's 13th annual Senior Fair at the Clarion Hotel & Conference Center Antietam Creek.

andrear@herald-mail.com The boy clutched a little cloth doll for comfort after he was hit by a car in Washington County. Months after the accident, the child's mother told Juanita Gliniak how much the doll had meant to her son - so much, the mother said, that the boy still slept with it at night. That's when Gliniak knew for sure that the "comfort dolls" were accomplishing their mission, she said. The Triad SALT (Seniors and Law Enforcement Together) Council of Washington County in 2002 distributed about 900 dolls to county police, fire departments and ambulance companies to help calm children in such crisis situations as traffic accidents, domestic disputes and house fires, said Gliniak, the council's comfort doll program coordinator.

The Washington County Commissioners voted Tuesday to rezone 49.5 acres of agricultural land for a housing development off Mount Aetna Road. The property is on the north side of Mount Aetna Road, just east of the Robinwood Drive intersection. It's across the street from the former Miller Farm, which was the subject of a controversial rezoning and annexation into the City of Hagerstown last fall. The rezoning will allow Triad Properties to subdivide the property into lots as small as 10,000 square feet.
