Hendershot to run for Hagerstown City Council Hagerstown City Council candidate N. Linn Hendershot is excited about plans for Hagerstown that include a new state university center and the opening of the city Fairgrounds. But he has concerns about the projects too. "I'm extremely optimistic about what the future holds, but if there's not good leadership we could end up with a white elephant or two," said Hendershot, 56, a Democrat. He said the planned University System of Maryland Hagerstown Education Center "could be a white elephant" if it's not done right.

alician@herald-mail.com In 1906, Washington County Hospital held its first public Donation Day in an effort to collect food to serve patients. As hospital lore has it, the day netted 88 cans of fruit, 119 jellies, beets, sweet potatoes, celery, chickens, beans, rice, apples, eggs, coffee, cabbages, nuts, roast beef and ice cream. In 2003, efforts to garner resources for the hospital have become rather more sophisticated than the food drives of years gone by. In fact, the Washington County Hospital Auxiliary Inc. exists solely to support heath-care programs and services for patients and their families.

"I am calling about the Bradford Learning Center and I was wondering why it was closed up? My daughter's grades are really going down and she misses the center and misses the staff. Maybe the readers know a place where they can open back up. Maybe they can call the principal at Pangborn Elementary. The children loved it and we hope they can open it back up. We miss the staff, especially Theresa, Mary, Phyllis and Angel. She was the volunteer for the school. Maybe the County Commissioners and the School Board can get together and work something out. About the Baldwin House, I think they should tear it down and rebuild it. They could make the classrooms the way they want them and possibly have more parking.

HAGERSTOWN -- The city's planning department has recommended leaving Washington County Hospital out of rezoning talk about Hagerstown's East End, for now. Planning Director Kathleen Maher said Tuesday "the three white elephants" in the East End will be excluded for the time being. Besides the hospital property, she was referring to the former Municipal Electric Light Plant and the former First Urban Fiber building, both of which are vacant. Those properties will be considered once more is known about their future, Maher said.
