Every one of the three registered 104 degrees, he reported.

WAYNESBORO, Pa. - Nineteen doors and nearly as many hallways are on the main floor of a new 17,000-square-foot building on Pa. 16 in Waynesboro. They all lead to the same place - the ambulances that take emergency medical technicians to 1,600 calls annually in the 74-square-mile first response area. Eleven career EMTs and 25 volunteers are looking to make the move to the Waynesboro Ambulance Squad's new $2.2 million headquarters Aug. 2. Before long, the fresh-paint smell will surely be replaced with that of spaghetti and lasagna.

TRI-STATE - In two rain-soaked days, the skies have dumped more precipitation on Hagers- town than the city saw in the entire month of July, bringing much-needed relief after months of drought-like conditions, local weather experts said. Meanwhile, in Franklin County, Pa., a countywide burn ban was lifted Tuesday. The Hagerstown weather station maintained by weather observer Greg Keefer recorded 1.25 inches of rain Monday and measured an additional 1.22 inches by Tuesday evening, helping to bring the total for the month well beyond the average 3.32 inches.

By BRENDAN KIRBY Staff Writer Spring finally lived up to its reputation on Monday. After weeks of cold, windy weather, the temperature cracked 90 degrees on Monday. The high reached 92 degrees, according to Hagerstown weather observer Greg Keefer's automated weather station. For people hanging out in Hagerstown City Park Monday afternoon, it was a nice change - even if it was a little too hot. "It's strange how people complain about the weather," said Elsa Ortiz, who was enjoying the sun with her 21/2-year-old son. Ortiz said she often gets out early to City Park, which is around the corner from her home.

Washington County is in the midst of an abnormally dry period, even though it has had more rainy days during July than average, according to National Weather Service meteorologist Carrie Suffern. “Abnormally dry means drier than normal, and a drought means a lot drier than normal,” Suffern said. “A bunch of different things go into the classification of a drought, including precipitation and stream flow. Washington County is not in a drought, and water levels are pretty close to normal.” As of July 27, Suffern said, 2.14 inches of rain had fallen in the area during the month.

Hello, my name is Brent Gustaf. Recently on Aug. 23, 2008; Katie Hann and I were married in Waynesboro, Pa. After the wedding and reception we left early the next morning for our honeymoon in Jamaica. The first few days were beautiful, the weather was in the 90s, little to no wind or waves; just gorgeous. Then we began getting phone calls from our family saying that there was a tropical storm/hurricane named "Gustav" coming our way. To be honest, I thought it was a joke. We hadn't really been watching any television while there, so we had no idea what was happening in the world.

Assessments now should be reduced To the editor: Boy! Didn't the assessments get out of hand in Washington County? They say they have dropped the assessments in our county to 5 percent. They say whatever your assessment total is, the amount of which you are taxed can't go up by more than that each year. They say it won't reach that assessment amount until 2012. Houses were artificially inflated up to a year or two ago and then they dropped off ridiculously low. I have seen houses up for sale with a real estate company asking $299,000 in the beginning and then having to sell for for $205,000.
