Thumbs Up, Thumbs Down - Jan. 12
Thumbs up to John Reece, a Hagerstown resident and breeder who donated a 17-week-old female bloodhound to the Washington County Sheriff’s Office. Bess, who will be trained to track missing children and patients who stray due to dementia and other illnesses, will join five other dogs in the department’s K-9 program. Sheriff Douglas Mullendore said such a dog typically would cost the department $4,000 to $6,000.
