daniels@herald-mail.com HAGERSTOWN - Get used to it and travel smarter. That was the advice U.S. Rep. Roscoe Bartlett, R-Md., offered the American public in the face of rising gas prices not likely to return to levels seen before the war in Iraq. "Buy more fuel-efficient cars and share a car with someone else," said Bartlett, who drives a hybrid 2001 Toyota Prius. "If we're at peak oil, which means that production is going to level out while demand continues to increase, we have to drastically reduce the oil (consumption)

Sell former Fort Ritchie base? Citizens need hard facts first We've always felt that the former Fort Ritchie Army base near Cascade had the potential to be an educational center of some sort. Its remote location, housing and meeting halls would provide an ideal setting for conferences and training sessions. Unfortunately, nothing like that has been proposed so far. The latest idea comes from Scott Stauffer of Brunswick, Md., who says he wants to buy the base and set up the Maryland School for World Leaders and Personal Achievement.

Arts school's musical production was a success To the editor: Last weekend marked the first all-school performance by the students from the Barbara Ingram School for the Arts. Although I had high expectations going in, I believe they really hit one out of the park with their production of "Thoroughly Modern Millie. " I have seen a few cameo-type appearances by the students at other events. However, this large scale all-school production really provided me a new and tangible understanding not only of the benefits of a dedicated school of the arts, but also of the outstanding talent that exists among these students.

When world leaders convene this week at Camp David for the G-8 Summit, Thurmont plans to be ready. Mayor Martin Burns said shop windows and sidewalks will be clean and the grass in the park will be mowed. Businesses will brace for a flood of visitors, including many American and foreign journalists covering the G-8, or Group of Eight. The Group of Eight nations are the United States, Canada, Germany, Italy, Japan, Russia, France and the United Kingdom. A White House statement said the summit, to be held on Friday and Saturday, “will address a broad range of economic, political and security issues.” One of the biggest unknowns is the protests.

charlestown@herald-mail.com SHEPHERDSTOWN, W.Va. - The gathering was small, but the messages were strong. A group of local residents opposed to the U.S.-led war in Iraq held a 24-hour vigil for peace in front of McMurran Hall on the Shepherd College campus over the weekend. The vigil started at 7 p.m. Saturday and was to conclude at 7 p.m. Sunday, organizers said. Small groups of people kept the vigil going through the night, including an older couple who was there from 2 to 3 a.m., said Michael Harman, who was keeping things rolling Sunday afternoon.

By all accounts, this WikiLeaks founder, Julian Assange, is a real — well, see last name, first syllable. Which is probably why I like him. I don't quite believe the contention that he's about to bring down the civilized world as we know it. To my mind, he's just kind of extending into government circles the same realities all of us peons are dealing with, to wit: There is no right of privacy anymore; get over it. If you are going to...

With world leaders on their way to Camp David for a Group of Eight summit, protesters trickled into nearby Thurmont to speak their minds. The movement started slowly Friday morning, with just two representatives of the Larouche Political Action Committee standing in the town square, advocating that President Barack Obama be removed from office. By noon, the ranks were growing, as members of Occupy movements had gathered in the Weis Markets parking lot to make signs and plan the rest of their day. Through it all, local, state and federal police were a constant presence through their patrols, working closely and cordially with Occupy groups, but watching out for more antagonistic protesters who have created havoc at past G-8 summits.

andrear@herald-mail.com GETTYSBURG, Pa. - It's Ike's oil paintings, Mamie's silver tea service, Winston Churchill's signature in the guest book, the family photos, gifts from world leaders and hundreds of other personal details that make the trip to the Eisenhower National Historic Site in Gettysburg such a worthwhile expedition. Today, World War II living history encampments will occupy the grounds of the scenic Gettysburg farm that five-star Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower and his wife purchased in 1950 - two years before Ike was elected the 34th president of the United States.

"I would very much like for the board of Washington County to go to the Midwest and watch how they handle their school closings. My son lives in the Midwest and has 80 inches of snow. His children had school called off one day because of the below-zero weather. Otherwise, they have been going to school every day, even with 80 inches of snow. What happens here in Hagerstown? School is called off for an inch or less of snow. Where is the logic in this? This is ridiculous. The school board could learn from them.
