“I think everyone should read Wally McClure's letter in the Saturday Herald-Mail, concerning his wishes for the Suns to leave Hagerstown ... to whoever wants them, or let them buy the land and build their own stadium. Very well put. It sounds as if the Suns have been playing games all along, planning to leave and be gone.” - Hagerstown “One thing we do have on Longmeadow Road is consistency. Whether it's sunny, raining, ice, snow or sleet, the traffic speed is between 40 and 70 miles per hour, 24/7, in the 25-to-35-mile zone.

The chief operating officer for Meritus Medical Center told youths at a black history program Sunday at Bridge of Life church on South Potomac Street that there are stipulations to achieve promise in life. Deborah Addo Samuels' advice came as she told a story from Judges 13 in the Bible about a barren woman who was to give birth. But part of a commandment to the woman was not consuming any wine, strong drink or eating any unclean thing, Samuel said. “With all of us, if there's a promise in life, it comes with a stipulation,” said Samuels, who is responsible for planning, developing, implementing and evaluating clinical and administrative operations of patient-care services at the hospital.

We had a visit from our son, Tom, a few days ago. We are always delighted when he can spend some time with us. Not only are his visits a sentimental occasion, when we remember and laugh at highly embarrassing moments from our mutual past, but this is when urgent technical needs are met. This is when batteries and bulbs are replaced, entertainment centers are reprogrammed and elderly parents are generally restored to the world of contemporary lives, to...

Acres of cornfields surround the farmhouse of Winston and Susan Herbst on Old Forge Road. But for the past seven years, the Hagerstown couple has been trying to plant a more meaningful seed - a place where young people can feel loved and inspired. They have taken their country property and turned it into a social and spiritual retreat for area youths called Right Choice Ministries. Each week, Susan Herbst said, they provide opportunities for Christian fellowship through games, life-skills programs, discussion groups and counseling activities.

Finally figured out what is wrong with America. Took awhile. Went through a lot of false starts and theories that led nowhere. But you know how, when the right answer presents itself, it clicks into place with such force that there can be no doubt of its veracity. That’s what happened yesterday, when I discovered, by accident really, the source of all of America’s troubles: Rear-facing car seats. Yup, you see it now, too, don’t you? Now that it’s been pointed out, it’s obvious.

Thumbs up To Hagerstown Community College students, who traveled to Annapolis Wednesday to participate in Student Advocacy Day activities.  It’s great to hear of young people who are interested in the workings of government, because it is that type of interest that keeps Democracy vibrant. To first-graders at Greencastle-Antrim Primary School, who donated $525.20 in dimes to school. The money collected will benefit the Lilian S. Besore Memorial Library financially, and will benefit the children by giving them a stake in the library.

The federal government is getting ready to require public schools to begin offering more healthful school meals in the future, but the government can’t force kids to eat them. “I think some of the greatest challenge(s), from a nutritional perspective” are getting young people to eat the more healthful food, Washington County Public Schools’ Supervisor of Food and Nutrition Services Jeff Proulx told school board members Tuesday. “Without change in the community as a whole, the nutritional change here may be deemed (by some students)

Young people are increasingly encouraged to become involved in their communities, to perform acts of service, to take on projects and to take a stand on issues of local importance. "How many hours of community service do you have?" is frequently a question on scholarship and college applications. Organizations realize that an involved person is an informed person, and an informed person is a person who can make a difference. People who can make a difference are viewed as successful, so those are typically the ones who earn scholarships and admittance to the colleges of their choice.

Kids these days ... have a lot to offer. I get tired of hearing some people stereotype today's young people as rude, overly tattooed, underdressed underachievers. I prefer to focus my attention --and yours -- on those who can steer our world in a more positive direction. At The Herald-Mail, we gather information about countless members of the younger-than-21 crowd who have applied their youthful energy and creativity toward the greater good. Throughout the week, we run stories submitted from the public about young men earning the rank of Eagle Scout, high school and college students making the honor roll and dean's list, and schoolchildren being honored for exhibiting trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring and citizenship --the pillars of the Character Counts!
