The demolition in downtown Hagerstown of the former Brandt Cabinet warehouse to make way for a new court building has drawn curiosity seekers as well as questions as to why it's taking so long. "We didn't anticipate a building from the early 1900s would have this much reinforcing, but we've overcome this," said Dean Beaver, job superintendent for Callas Contractors Inc. Once the crew got the south end of the four-story concrete, brick and steel building down, the demolition began to move ahead more quickly.

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.

WAYNESBORO, Pa. - "I'll probably just board up or brick out the windows and rent it out as warehouse space," Craig Mahrle said on Sunday night, just hours after learning about a Waynesboro Borough Council decision that hinders his plans to convert an old West Main Street factory into condominiums. Mahrle, owner of the former Beck & Benedict Hardware Store and vacant factory behind it, had asked the council to use spaces in the public Rotary parking lot to fulfill borough ordinance requirements.
