MARTINSBURG, W.Va. -- Blue Ridge Community and Technical College's governing board on Wednesday approved pay raises for full-time faculty and its president and recommended a 4.75 percent increase in tuition for most students. The tuition increase still must be approved by the West Virginia Council for Community and Technical College Education, officials said. As proposed, student fees for full-time enrolled state residents would increase by $58 to $1,530 per semester. Nonresidents, with the exception of students who reside in Frederick and Clarke counties in Virginia and in Washington and Frederick counties in Maryland, would increase by $168 to $4,427 per semester, officials said.

BOONSBORO - Courtney Monninger, the former president of Boonsboro High School's student council, was active in her church and extracurricular activities before graduating this summer. The 18-year-old said she plans to spend her freshman year at Liberty University focusing on two things: academics and her faith. "I think it will kind of help me keep focused on my education and my faith," Monninger said of the strict Christian code of conduct at Liberty University, founded by the Rev. Jerry Falwell.

I read with interest Paul Swartz's and Tom Firey's recent pieces on education in Washington County, about giving students and their families more money to pay for college. With tuitions skyrocketing, this isn't a bad idea. But, it's just the same stuff we've been hearing for 40 years. Why expect it to work now? It won't work, because Swartz and Firey ignore the underlying problems. It's not about where we're going to get the money or helping banks make money on student loans. Here are two problems nobody wants to talk about.

I appreciate Ruth Callaham's letter of support. I would like to address her question as to the funding for my educational goal that proposes tuition exemptions for higher education programs for Washington County students. As Callaham and the readers know, education has always been, and continues to be, one of my primary interests. I believe it should be of primary interest to every citizen of Washington County. Education affects every citizen in some fashion. It affects your tax bill, whether or not you have children in the system.
