Feb. 6 would have been Ronald Reagan’s 100th birthday. To honor him, this column celebrates that great champion of deregulation, that reinvigorator of the American economy, that believer in Adam Smith’s invisible hand: Jimmy Carter. Yes, Carter. It was the peanut farmer from Georgia who pushed the United States toward a market economy, not the one-time actor from California.

MARTINSBURG, W.Va. -- Beth Jacob Congregation, organized in 1912 by Martinsburg's once-prominent Jewish community, has dissolved. Two years after selling its synagogue at 126 W. Martin St., the organization's few remaining members were authorized Monday by 23rd Judicial Circuit Judge Gray Silver III to distribute about $290,000 remaining in congregation bank accounts and dispose of other property. In his order, Silver recognized the congregation as being defunct and authorized trustee Jerry J. Kusner of Martinsburg to distribute the money to a number of area organizations, pending the subtraction of legal fees and costs that arise from the auction of furniture, stained glass windows and other items.

There are Christmas lights and then there's the Wilson Family Christmas Lights with more than 80,000 separate beams that could possibly guide Santa's sleigh to Chambersburg. But the visual beauty is just the obvious aspect of the display. The display is in memory of Colbie A. Daywalt, who lost his battle with cancer at age 7, and all donations collected from visitors are given to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. When Trevor Johns, 27, of Chambersburg, decided to decorate his grandmother LaWanda Wilson's house at 490 Starr Ave. last year it was a labor of love in Colbie's memory.

Justin Warner would like to clear up one thing: He doesn't wear lipstick. For some reason, judges on “The Next Food Network Star” were nearly as obsessed with Warner's red mouth as they were about his food. Lately, the only thing that's been painted on Warner's lips has been a smile. On Sunday night, Warner was named “The Next Food Network Star,” catapulting his career from self-taught chef to standing alongside other “cheflebrities.” Warner, a Hagerstown native, is now based in Brooklyn, N.Y., where he runs his restaurant, Do or Dine.
