On Sunday, Feb. 13, The Herald-Mail printed my column about African-American candidates for the Hagerstown City Council. In that column, I said that Alesia Parson had been recruited to run for council by the Rev. LeRoy Guillory. I should have double-checked that part of the column or eliminated it. I did neither. That was wrong and I have apologized to Parson. I apologize again today to her, to my colleagues and to the readers of The Herald-Mail. This is no excuse, but I did not do this out of malice.

Voter registration in Washington County is at an all-time high going into the Sept. 15 primary, but officials believe that most of those people won't go to the polls. According to voter registration records, 64,389 Washington County residents are registered to vote. Of those, 56,678 are registered as either Republican or Democrat, and therefore are eligible to vote in the primary. The GOP has the edge with 28,546, while 28,132 people are registered Democrats. --cont from news page -- Election Director Dorothy Kaetzel said she expects voter turnout to remain low, in line with the 36 percent turnout for the 1994 gubernatorial race.

MARTINSBURG, W.Va. -- Republican party leader Mick Staton said he wouldn't be surprised or concerned if Berkeley County's more than 14,000 registered voters with no party affiliation accepted the Democratic party's invitation to vote in their primary election this year. After all, on Berkeley County's primary ballot, there is only one contested local race among Republican candidates that comes with a salary -- the 16th Senatorial District seat for Jefferson County. "I'm just concerned about bringing those 14,000 voters to our side in the general election," said Staton, chairman of Berkeley County's Republican Party Executive Committee.

Washington County election officials have removed the name Charlie Baker from their list of eligible voters after it was revealed that the man's true name is Roger Dean Weber. Weber registered to vote in January under the name Baker, and the same day filed as a candidate for mayor in the City of Hagerstown elections. He lost in the March 8 primary after receiving only 13 votes. The removal of the name Baker from the elections list means Weber for now cannot vote in Washington County, said Dorothy Kaetzel, Washington County Board of Elections director.

If nothing else, one has to admire the moxie of Hagerstown druggist David Russo, who, when Washington County is getting more Republican by the minute, changed his voter registration to Democrat and challenged popular GOP Del. Chris Shank in District 2B. Russo has made some good sense in this campaign, particularly in his stands on land use, which are well-reasoned and balanced. Shank, on the other hand, has sided strongly with the anti-growth contingents to the point of refusing to meet with developers to hear their side of the story.

gregs@herald-mail.com HAGERSTOWN - Roger Dean Weber, who will be on the ballot as Charlie Baker in Tuesday's Hagerstown primary election, lives in a mobile home in West Virginia. That fact, coupled with the fact that Weber hasn't been granted the legal right to use the name Baker, has led local officials to believe there is sufficient information to challenge either his voter registration or his candidacy. However, because the deadline for primary election challenges has passed, Weber - under the name Baker - will appear on Tuesday's ballot.
