I read over the weekend that the leading cause of hospitalization in Washington County is mental illness. Be honest, how many of you saw the front-page story and thought "This is news?" Too bad USA Today wasn't writing the headline - they might have settled on "We're Nuts!" For a long time, mental problems have been swept under the rug, so it's good that they are attracting media attention. Mental illnesses can be treated just like physical illnesses, allowing people to lead normal lives and be elected governor of Minnesota.

Just before the Sunday night Bible study time, more than a dozen youths played basketball inside the nave of Tri-State Fellowship, an evangelical church on Cearfoss Pike near Hagerstown. In a room upstairs, a couple of young adults rehearsed on a drum set and guitar. If it weren't for the lyrics, the tune could have been mistaken for a song played on a Top-40 radio station. Many denominations, particularly evangelical ones, have steered church life toward what could be described as a more casual ministry, said Randy Buchman, 51-year-old pastor at Tri-State Fellowship.

CHAMBERSBURG, PA. chambersburg@herald-mail.com Sweating beneath a blazing sun Monday afternoon, Sarah Leland, Lindsay Conrad and Michelle Negley clawed at the crumbling shingles atop the Fayetteville, Pa., home of Charles and Mary Jane Carbaugh, a job for which each was willing to pay a price. "It gives me satisfaction knowing I'm helping people less fortunate, and it's fun. Why not pay money?" said Conrad, a 15-year-old from Waynesboro, Pa. "They pay $150 apiece to sleep on the floor and work in 90-plus-degree weather," said Tim Moran, director of the Chambersburg Project.

If the 17-year-old's thoughts on smoking were unclear, perhaps the words on his T-shirt were better understood: "Keep your 'butts' off our streets. " "I know I will never smoke," said Marquale Smith, a teen educator for Brothers United Who Dare to Care who was wearing the shirt. The organization hosted its third annual No Smoking Youth Rally Saturday at the Martin Luther King Community Center. The event aimed to teach young people about the risks associated with smoking in order to encourage them to never light up, organizer Andy Smith said.

HAGERSTOWN -- Overrun this summer by youths from low-income families seeking jobs, a Hagerstown-based agency is trying to squeeze out enough dollars to do more. The Western Maryland Consortium, which was granted federal economic stimulus money to help youths, hired 144 of them in Washington County for seven weeks this summer. Now, it's focusing on about 30 of the young people who had no school, training or job plans for this fall, but are willing to try, said Peter P. Thomas, the consortium's executive director.
