    WAS IT A TORNADO?
    Herald Mail: "Residents and work crews were cleaning up the damage in the Maugansville area Wednesday morning after an apparent tornado struck the community Tuesday evening. The National Weather Service said Wednesday morning that a preliminary local storm report indicates that wind that caused damage in the Maugansville area shortly after 8 p.m. Tuesday was a tornado."

    LONGER TRAIN WAITS?
    Washington Examiner: "Metro is hosting public hearings, gathering written testimony and surveying riders as it considers service cuts to fill a gap in the next budget.  Much of the attention has been focused on cuts to the rail network that would make riders wait as long as 25 minutes for trains on weekends -- not the more likely changes to buses that would primarily affect D.C. riders."

    AMPUTATED LEG ON DISPLAY
    Frederick News Post: "Major General Daniel E. Sickles fought in the Civil War and lost his leg after being injured by cannon fire. The 148-year-old leg will be exhibited at Fort Detrick while the National Museum of Health and Medicine relocates to Fort Detrick's Forest Glen annex."
