With reverence, humility and gratitude, local officials on Friday remembered the horror of the 9/11 terrorist attacks and the brave attempts by emergency crews to save lives. Hagerstown Mayor Robert E. Bruchey II, who spoke at the event, said he was getting ready to go to work when he saw news coverage of the first crash at the World Trade Center and figured it was a pilot's terrible mistake. When a second plane crashed, Bruchey said, he knew Americans' lives would change forever.

andrews@herald-mail.com One of those persistent annoyances in a firefighter's life - a false alarm - probably saved Lt. Scott Maxwell's life. Maxwell was filling in at a Brooklyn fire company when the World Trade Center was attacked by terrorists and fire companies throughout New York City responded. As he shared his story at North Hagerstown High School Saturday evening, Maxwell remembered how he was pulled off that call - the biggest call in New York City's history.

andrews@herald-mail.com The Lintons kept their TV off Thursday, the day the recovery effort at the World Trade Center complex in New York City ended with silence and solemnity. "It was a downer," said Sharon Linton of Frederick, Md., whose 26-year-old son, Alan Patrick Linton Jr., is still considered missing. When a hijacked plane rammed the south tower on Sept. 11, Linton was in his office on the 104th floor of the north tower. He called home to Frederick to say he was OK. After he hung up, another hijacked jet crashed into the north tower.

waynesboro@herald-mail.com MERCERSBURG, Pa. - Caroline Miller walked up to the little monument carrying 3-year-old Nick on one arm and a bouquet of red roses and white mums on the other. She put the flowers on the base of a monument dedicated to the victims of the World Trade Center, Pentagon and Flight 93 who died in the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. She didn't know about Wednesday's dedication ceremony until she got there. "I knew the monument was here and I decided to put flowers on it. When I think of all those people ... it was such a sad day for the country," she said.

I saw "United 93" the weekend it opened. As the theater lights dimmed, a nervous jitter ran through the crowd. The audience braced for the painful memories that "United 93" would unearth, memories that many Americans have tried to forget since Sept. 11. Scanning the apprehensive faces, I wondered what the movie would mean to each moviegoer. I knew what it would mean to me. I have lived in Hagerstown for a year and a half. My family moved here from New Jersey, but, having lived 18 miles outside of Manhattan, I associate myself with New York City more than anywhere else.

The country remembers the thousands who died that day at the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and on Flight 93 in the Pennsylvania countryside, said the Rev. William H. Harter, pastor of the Presbyterian Church of Falling Spring.

A Sept. 11, 2001, memorial planned for Red Run Park in Washington Township, Pa., features not only three large artifacts, but also plaques describing the terrorist attacks of the day. A committee overseeing the memorial's development in Rouzerville, Pa., debuted a scale model of their plans Monday during a Washington Township Supervisors meeting. The township already obtained a steel beam from the fallen World Trade Center towers in New York City. Negotiations are under way to acquire part of a limestone wall where a terrorist-controlled airplane hit the Pentagon in Washington, D.C., as well as a rock from the crash site in Shanksville, Pa. Those three items would be the main focus of a memorial contained in a pentagon-shaped pavilion about 30 feet in diameter and 18 1/2 feet high.

When he stopped at Premium Outlets for lunch on Friday, Richard Pinnavaia - who was in the South Tower of the World Trade Center when it was hit in the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks - had his World Trade Center identification card with him, as well as a picture of a friend who died in the attacks. β€œI wear it on the ride every year,” said Pinnavaia, who was participating in the annual America's 9/11 motorcycle ride. β€œIt's a symbolic gesture on my part so that people know that not only was I there, but I also know someone who passed away.” Pinnavaia, 67, said he worked on the 35th floor and got out of the tower about half an hour before it collapsed.

erinc@herald-mail.com WASHINGTON COUNTY After the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, and the heroism of rescue workers on that day, local firefighters said they got handshakes and even a few hugs from grateful residents. For a year or two, some said, they noticed more people thanking them for the work they do. Now, four years after terrorists in hijacked airliners attacked the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, some firefighters say that's not the case anymore.
