HAGERSTOWN - The mayor said Tuesday that it's time to end a dispute that began after a statement was read by Councilwoman Alesia Parson-McBean during the March sentencing of Jeffrey Shifler. Shifler, a 16-year veteran of the Hagerstown Police Department, was sentenced in March to 51 months in prison for making racist threats against Parson-McBean, who is African-American, and black students at North Hagerstown and South Hagerstown high schools. During Tuesday's City Council meeting, Mayor Robert E. Bruchey II said The Associated Press misquoted a part of the statement that Parson-McBean read.

Wivell explains vote on right-of-way acquisition To the editor: Regarding the recent story in The Herald-Mail concerning the acquisition of right-of-way for road improvements at Massey Boulevard ( "County to buy easements near Valley Mall," Wednesday, Nov. 4, page A1), I would like to clarify my vote on the matter. I certainly understand the importance of government paying a fair value for land that it deems necessary for a public purpose. In this case, however, I felt that payment in excess of $100,000 for a temporary easement to be used only during the period of construction seems excessive, especially when the adjoining landowner has much to gain once the road improvements are completed.

CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. -- One might think the arts would be one of the most progressive segments of society in terms of the advancement of women and minorities, but the walls of many major galleries are dominated by the works of white men, as are the halls of power in Hollywood, according to a woman wearing a gorilla mask. Who was that mysterious masked woman at Wilson College for Arts Day on Wednesday? She used the name "Frida Kahlo," but that was a nom de guerre for this Guerrilla Girl, whom like other members of her group, uses the name of a deceased female artist.
