WASHINGTON COUNTY Her journey from Baltimore to Hagerstown included a 30-day stay at a drug addiction treatment center, followed by a trip to the Department of Social Services. There, she was told that a requirement to receive welfare in the form of temporary cash assistance was that she search for a job. Her search didn't take her too far. Marcella Shell, 49, now works in the administration and finance department at the very building where, she said, she was able to turn her life around for her and her two children.

"Here we go again with Sharpsburg. I got a real good chuckle out of some lady on Tuesday who said she is a resident and has lived there all her life and she can't say that we are complainers. Then she goes on to complain about a lot of people coming in from out of town, trying to take over and run the place, that is the whole problem, outsiders. Now if that isn't complaining, I would like to know what is. " "To the lady in Sharpsburg who passed me going at least 65 in a 50 mile speed zone and then had the nerve to curse at me, I think something is wrong with someone like that.

The election of 2012 is fast approaching and will almost certainly send a message about the status of the welfare state in America. Is the dislike for government health plans and other social support programs so vocally disparaged by the Tea party and many Republicans in danger, or do they represent the voice of radical change? While it is historically true that we, as a culture, are dominated by an individualistic ethos, it is also true that a communitarian set of values has blunted its impact.

“Presidential candidate Mitt Romney asks, are you better off today than you were four years ago? For the past 58 years, my wife and I have lived a frugal lifestyle. We saved enough money so that we could live comfortably until our death. During the Clinton years, we earned a modest 6 percent on our investments. During the George Bush presidency, we lost 40 percent of our savings. With Obama as president, we are making about 2 percent on that which was left. We are not doing as well as we should, but we sure are doing a lot better than with the last Republican president.” - Halfway “Readers, be alert.

"This is in response to the woman who was talking about unemployment and welfare, and how they should drug screen all of us. I think that is totally inappropriate. Not everybody that gets state assistance does drugs. There are some of us who actually do what we have to do, that actually hit those streets every day and look for a job. ... There are people out there that work day in, day out, making minimum wage, that have to choose between a place to live and electricity. " - Hagerstown "I'm wondering - maybe someone can steer me in the right direction - I've contacted the city numerous times about people living here with out-of-state license plates.
