    Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan came to Hagerstown Thursday bearing gifts, announcing the start of a $105 million project to widen Interstate 81. In partnership with West Virginia, the first phase of construction of the long-sought project, which recently got under way, will expand the heavily traveled interstate to six lanes from U.S. 11 in West Virginia to Md. 63 near Williamsport. "These improvements to I-81 are critical infrastructure investments that will help citizens here in Washington County, across Western Maryland and all across our state go about their daily lives in a faster, more efficient and safer manner," Hogan said...

    A couple of good old boys in Maryland decided they would let some of the Black Lives Matters protesters in Hagerstown, Maryland know what they think of their protests. So, one followed the other's truck, which was a diesel truck and they proceeded to spew black exhaust smoke across the entire group of protesters. Check out the video below, which was originally uploaded by Aaron Gettel and then reposted by a protest supporter, Lawrence Marley Hester. Fast forward to the 1:20 mark.

    Police pepper-sprayed a 15-year-old girl and charged her as a juvenile with assault and disorderly conduct after her bicycle hit a car, prompting disagreement Wednesday about whether the officers acted properly. Hagerstown Police Capt. Paul Kifer said the white officer who arrested the mixed-race girl had to subdue her with chemical spray to get her into a cruiser for a ride to the police station Sunday. Kifer said the girl had refused to cooperate with police trying to question her about the accident and find a parent to authorize her refusal to receive medical treatment from paramedics on the scene....

    Dear Gov. Hogan, Rep. Delaney, Rep. Shuster … somebody: I'm Andy Bruns, and I run The Herald-Mail. I need to tell you something disturbing about myself. At least 10 times a week, I put a bullet in the revolver, spin the cylinder, put the gun to my head and pull the trigger. One of these days, the gun will go off. My friends and family will be devastated, and my children will be fatherless. No, I’m not suicidal. I, along with thousands of others in the region, simply commute to work on Interstate 81. The gun is only a metaphor,...

    A Maryland man has been charged with handcuffing and fatally beating his girlfriend's 9-year-old son over a missing piece of birthday cake, according to court records. The suspect, Robert Wilson, 30, of Hagerstown, was charged with second-degree murder by a Washington County grand jury on Wednesday. Prosecutors allege that Wilson handcuffed and beat Jack Garcia on June 30 when he took a piece of birthday cake without permission at the home in Hagerstown, about 50 miles northwest of Washington. Jack died on July 5 at a Washington hospital. Jack's mother, Oriana Garcia, 26, and his uncle, Jacob Barajas, 23, had...

    Rep. John Delaney was in Hagerstown Wednesday to pitch his proposal for long-term funding of transportation and other infrastructure projects by repatriating the overseas earnings of American corporations. "There hasn't been anything really transformative to put a lot of money into infrastructure," Delaney, D-Md., told a small group of businesspeople at Bulls & Bears restaurant. He pointed out that the federal gas tax — the primary source of revenue for the Highway Trust Fund — has not been increased since the early 1990s, in part, because it is politically unpopular. It also is a regressive tax that hits lower-income people...

    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.”...

    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...

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.
