TRI-STATE -- Forecasting the weather in the region Tuesday was so tricky that one of the nation's experts was called in to help. With the possibility of freezing rain moving in, Mike Seidel of The Weather Channel set up shop in a network van at the intersection of Summit Avenue and West Washington Street Tuesday afternoon. Seidel is known for his live reports of major weather events for The Weather Channel and it's often said that if Seidel is in town, the weather is likely to be bad. Seidel said he came to town because of all the talk about ice. Seated in the van filled with television production equipment, Seidel busily assessed the situation on a laptop computer.

Reports of icy road conditions in parts of Washington County caused the Board of Education to dismiss schools two hours early Wednesday. Schools Director of Transportation Chris Carter said forecasts from the Weather Channel and AccuWeather indicated sleet and freezing rain would fall on Washington County Wednesday afternoon. He said the forecast also indicated temperatures would drop below freezing later in the day, possibly creating hazardous conditions for buses. "We felt that it was best to try to get children home before temperatures started dropping," Carter said.

A mid-afternoon downpour halted play in the 2000 Maryland State Amateur Golf tournament Thursday at Fountain Head Country Club Course. Only half of the 120 golfers completed play, with University of Maryland's Keith Unikel carding a 5-under-par 66, including a 30 on the back nine, to take the clubhouse lead. Four golfers have completed their qualifying round at par or better. Miguel Rivera of Maryland Golf had a 68, Nick Angelo of Rolling Road had a 69 and Joe Records of Hillendale had a 71. Today's two rounds of match play will begin after the other 60 finish their qualifying round, as well as any possible playoffs.

Humph. Looks as if we were worried about Osama bin Laden when we should have been concerned with Mother bin Nature. Sort of like the Almighty needed to give us a little reminder of who's really in charge here. We're all hot and bothered by Code Orange when we should have been concentrating on Code White. Duct tape THIS. Actually, duct tape did play an important role for me this weekend, because if it hadn't been for the stuff I would have had a car full of snow. Something called a "regulator" broke in my car, leaving the driver's-side power window stuck in the down position.

By TERI JOHNSON Staff Writer Aaron Tippin has found success, but the down-to-earth country singer isn't concerned about its trappings. "I've never taken to that star crap," Tippin said in a telephone interview from his farm in Dowelltown, Tenn., where he was watching it rain. "I like being like the guy that lives on the next ridge. " You can ask him about being famous or how it feels to sell more than 3.5 million albums, but he'd rather talk to you about your hat or take a look at your truck.

“Responding to the citizen who wrote in here about the senior center, and all that we do in it, at Girls Inc. I'm a participant there, and I won't be a participant when they go to Robinwood, because I cannot drive at night, and I have to go out there for the hospitals, but I come from Clear Spring, and it takes me over 40 minutes to get out there, with traffic. So maybe the people who want it out there are the people who work.” - Cearfoss “People are calling in and blaming the state for passing on the pension costs to the county.

For the past six years I've been meeting for two hours every month with a group of citizens to get feedback on what we do - and what we should be doing - on the editorial pages of The Herald-Mail newspapers. The idea for the group grew out of a project called New Directions for News, run by veteran journalist Jean Gaddy Wilson, who spent three days in July of 1992 convincing us that as a profession we did not listen carefully enough to our readers. Over the years the make-up of the group has changed, as members changed jobs, moved away or, in the case of the students who were involved, graduated and went away to college.

Mail Call for 1/5 "Has anyone seen the beautiful railroad underpass out by the Subway Seafood Restaurant on Burhans Boulevard? It's beautiful. Someone needs to recognize the artist. What is his name and how did he paint the top of the underpass with all the traffic that goes through there? Now there is an engine painted on the side nearest Subway. Do a story, take some pictures, Daily Mail, and keep us informed on this wonderful well done job and its artist. And can we get more underpasses done like that in Hagerstown?"

Editor's note: Tim Rowland is on vacation. This column originally appeared on Aug. 17, 2006. So where are all the hurricanes at? I thought this was supposed to be the hurricane season that ended all hurricane seasons, with gargantuan, roiling storms that would make Katrina and Rita look like Lucy and Ethel. Things could pick up this fall, I suppose, but as of now, we're sitting on a big squadoosh. It's killing the guys and gals down at The Weather Channel. You can see them growing more and more antsy as their blue rain slickers gather more and more dust.

Why is it that the bigger the buildup, the lesser the storm? Here's the formula: They cancel school in advance? You reach for the beach umbrella and the tanning butter. Time and time again, when the public goes nuts, nothing happens. Well, something, but a greatly reduced something. Even the guys at South Pointe gym were marveling at how everyone was frantically going out of their way to stock up on drums of Skin Popper Protein Hormone Muscle Mass Powder. Every inch of every newspaper was jammed with pre-hurricane hysteria, from the Washington Post singing a poetic ode in praise of the lowly sandbag, to an article in The Herald-Mail telling parents how to prepare their children, emotionally and psychologically, for rain.
