Once again, I have to step in and save the day, although frankly I'm getting tired of it and this might be the last time. The Hagerstown City Council is in a quandary over what to do with the venerable old Tusing Warehouse downtown, which hasn't been occupied since the Industrial Revolution, when it was used for the manufacture of tusings and tusing accessories. The council listened to any number of proposals for the brick monstrosity and accepted none of them, whether the ideas had merit or not. I see the logic in that.

SMITHSBURG - Marilyn Hembrock, a member of Trinity Lutheran Church, has been elected president of the Delaware-Maryland Synodical Women's Organization of the Women of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. Hembrock assumed her post at the annual convention, which was earlier this summer at Baltimore Lutheran High School in Towson, Md. Active for many years in the organization, Hembrock has been president of the Feeser scholarship committee for the past six years. "We give scholarships to women entering the full-time ministry," Hembrock said, noting that at least one scholarship has been awarded annually through that committee.

A reader recently told The Herald-Mail that control of the high Washington County teen pregnancy rate could require a total culture change. She might be right. There was a time when choice about women's bodies - and how they were treated - was dictated by social standards. In society, there were so-called good girls and bad girls. Inaccurate descriptions, of course, but prevalent. Some "party girls" grew up to join the layers of professional prostitution. At the top of the pyramid was the pampered, protected rich man's mistress.

Here are some of the calls we have received lately: "Do you realize that today, at two minutes and three seconds after 1 a.m., the time and date (April 5) was: 01:02:03 04-05-06. That will never happen again. " "Funkstown caller, you wanted to know who raises the gas prices. Listen to your news and you will find how much of a profit Exxon made the last quarter of '05 and first quarter of '06. Bush can't help it. This is America, the government can't dictate what companies charge for their services or products.

"Well-behaved women seldom make history. " "Feminism is the radical notion that women are people. " "Eve was framed. " "A woman's place is in the House, Senate and Oval Office. " Women's rights have advanced far enough to be the topic of witty bumper stickers and T-shirts but not far enough that a month - March - isn't still needed to mark the achievements women have made throughout history. By now, women can enter just about any career field of their choice, but a local professor said challenges still exist.

Talk to your teenagers about sex, even if you feel they're not listening. They may not always do what you'd like them to do, but they do hear what you say. That's the message that was conveyed - again - in Herald-Mail reporter Tiffany Arnold's Monday story based on interviews with 16 young women, aged 14 to 18, from Washington County. Ten of the young women said they were sexually active. More than half said their parents were unaware of what they were doing. Those engaging in risky, unprotected sex, including oral sex, said they knew that they learned in Family Life classes that they could get a sexually transmitted diseases, but did it anyway.

Elsewhere on this page is a letter from Michael Ruck, father of a young Hagerstown woman charged with abandoning her newborn baby. As The Herald-Mail said in a Sept. 29 editorial, it would be irresponsible at this point, in advance of a trial, to speculate on Kelly Ruck's guilt or innocence. But as someone who served for six years on the board of Parent-Child Center, a United Way agency that works to prevent child abuse, I have to believe such situations can be prevented, if we can get the word out about the services that are available.

karenh@herald-mail.com If scholarship pageant contestant Emily Conrad had her way, little girls would understand that being a princess means more than just having a pretty face. True beauty radiates from within, said Conrad, who will compete this week with 21 other young women for the title of Miss Maryland. "When my grandmother was on her deathbed, my mother asked her if there was anything she would have done differently in her life, and she said the only thing she would have changed is she would have spent less time worrying about how she looked," Conrad said Sunday at a sign-in ceremony at Valley Mall.
