    Maryland's top transportation officials visited Washington County Thursday to discuss area road projects, including the construction of a new bridge on busy Interstate 81 over the Potomac River. The tour is an annual ritual, in which state transportation officials meet with local officials and state lawmakers to discuss the Maryland Department of Transportation's six-year capital budget. Among state officials attending the discussion at the Hagerstown library was Wilson Parran, deputy secretary of the transportation department, and Melinda Peters, who heads the Maryland State Highway Administration. Peters said that construction of the $43 million I-81 bridge will begin in the fall...

    A Hagerstown man who was driving a car when his front-seat passenger pointed a shotgun at a tractor-trailer driver during a road-rage incident last year on Interstate 81 was sentenced on Thursday to one year in the Washington County Detention Center. Washington County Circuit Court Judge M. Kenneth Long Jr. sentenced Vincent Saunders, 22, of West Washington Street to serve five years in prison with all but one year suspended. Long ruled that Saunders would serve the one-year sentence at the county jail and granted him work-release privileges within the state. "This is at least the third case I've had...

    Thanks to persistent unemployment and low availability of low-skill jobs, Shenandoah Family Farms’ ice cream plant in Hagerstown, Maryland has received over 1,600 applicants for a grand total of 36 jobs. Many of those applicants are former workers at the Good Humor plant that was bought by Shenandoah Family Farms. “You’d think that after 20-some-years working someplace at least somebody would think you area a good person, that you’d show up on time every day, and that would be worth something,” Luther Brooks, a 50-year-old former worker at the plant told the Washington Post. “I can’t get nothing. I’ve tried.”...

    Still no word. A guy threatens the entire First Family, including the President's kids and we never hear from him again. Should be in court. Should appear befor a judge. Should be behind bars. Still no word, maybe somebody forgot to check this story out. I'd be curious to know the profile of this lunatic.

    I'm just a plain old law abiding citizen. Since I obey our nation's laws, I was curious if we have yet to hear any information about the nutter holding the "Death to Obama" sign at Senator Ben Cardin's Townhall on Wednesday, August 12th, 2009? Seems to me that we should have a name and a profile for this fellow by now? He should have appeared before a judge and, I would imagine should be held without bail. Dangerous folk like "Joe the Plumber" have all of their personal information released to the public when they so much as suggest a...

    HAGERSTOWN, MD. — Four hundred and fifty Maryland residents and a lot of anger filled the Hagerstown Community College theater Wednesday afternoon for Sen. Ben Cardin’s third town hall on health reform. The Maryland Democrat’s 75-minute town hall, held in a conservative stronghold in the state, was peppered with boos, jeers and catcalls, though a minority of attendees who support health reform efforts made it a bit calmer than past events in Laurel and Towson.

    The President flew from Camp David, using the Hagerstown, MD airport, to Charleston, WV, but not before he and accompanying staff and Cabinet members had to change jets. AF1 had a faulty engine and another jet had to be flown from Andrews AFB for the President and his entourage to use. The President missed a Church service that he had planned on attending in WV, but said that he didn't miss it because of the sermon but because of a faulty engine and necessary jet change. He spoke to an enthusiastic crowd in Charleston, where applause interrupted his speech after...
