Question of the Day
Ingrid Heigs, the daughter of a former church member, said the bishop usually kept the car parked inside the church’s fence.

Shooting could cost bar its liquor license
Members of the Washington County liquor board will decide within a month whether a Hagerstown bar violated a noise ordinance when a man was fatally shot there during a fight.
The owner of Zipper’s bar on Jonathan Street, Randy Jones, told the board Wednesday that he has since upgraded security. He recently installed five security cameras and a metal detecting wand to scan people for weapons.
If the board determines that Zipper’s violated the ordinance, it could lose its liquor license.
Christopher Ayala, 23, of Greencastle, Pa., was killed at the bar on May. The shooting suspect, Stephen Urquhart, 26, of New York, is still at large.
