In the system of higher education, students have one shot to accentuate themselves among the thousands of other students competing for a spot in a particular college, one chance to accurately communicate exactly who they are and what they can bring to the table. The only way to transmit this information is by filling out a meticulous application. Colleges want to know everything from parents' education to what integrity means to applicants. The endless list of questions may seem like a burden, but it actually is a marvelous declaration of bragging rights, a blank slate that students may embellish with their honors, awards, athletic successes, academic achievements, community service and extracurricular involvement.

By DAVE McMILLION Staff Writer Marvin High and his co-workers were tackling the seemingly straightforward task of trimming limbs away from the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal near McMahon's Mill when things suddenly took a different turn. When High reached to cut one of the limbs, a black snake that had been wrapped around the branch tumbled out and landed on the 17-year-old Hagerstown youth. But it didn't faze the group of kids in this year's Summer Youth Employment Training Program, a federally funded project designed to give work experience to the disadvantaged.

Thumbs up to Washington County government for taking steps to become one of the first county governments in the United States to generate all the power it uses on its own property. The power would be generated using solar panels at landfills to produce 100 percent clean, renewable energy that is generated with no moving parts, toxins or water use. Thumbs up to the communities and companies that work with Horizon Goodwill Industries to employ people with disabilities or medical conditions, limited education or work experience, a criminal record or a history of substance abuse, or who have lost their jobs due to the economy.

Where will minimum wages end?   To the editor: We need a $15 minimum wage. Got your attention? Yes, the part-time entry-level workers need to be paid $15 an hour despite the fact that this is probably their first job, with no skills, learning to arise in time to go to work. When that wage is put into place from the $7.25 now in effect, those making $10 will want a raise to $17.50. They have developed skills and have some work experience. Those making $15 an hour won't be satisfied having some trainee making the same as they are after they spent time developing skills, habits, etc. And so on it goes.
