By RICHARD F. BELISLE / Staff Writer, Waynesboro photo: RIC DUGAN / staff photographer GREENCASTLE, Pa. - Truckers at the Travel Port truck stop in Greencastle showed little concern Tuesday over a Pennsylvania law that took effect last week making it illegal to stay in the left lane on major roads. The law forces drivers to use the lane "nearest the right-hand edge of the roadway," except to pass or to make a left turn - and then for only two miles before making the turn.

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.

When I was a kid growing up in Hagerstown's South End, there were certain things that always seemed to be part of the summer ritual. The list usually included swimming at Municipal Pool, feeding the ducks at City Park, taking in a Hagerstown Suns game and most importantly — eating a snow cone with seafoam. We grew up in a Smurf blue house on South Street, which was prime walking distance to our favorite snow cone site. A sweet older lady, whose name I can't remember, lived just up the block on South Potomac Street and made snow cones on her side porch.

Harley-Davidson has commemorated anniversaries before with special edition models, but I don't recall in recent history a specific model that celebrated its own anniversary. The Motor Company alters that history with the FLSTFI Fat Boy 15th Anniversary edition bike. Harley produced a limited number of Screamin' Eagle Fat Boys for the 2005 model year, but the 15th anniversary bike isn't a product of the Custom Vehicle Operation Screamin' Eagle lineup. Despite that fact, the 15th Anniversary Fat Boy is a limited edition bike that comes stock with a motor that's a full 100cc bigger - 1550cc to be exact.

Sandra Volneck has faced many challenges over the years, but the hardest thing she ever had to do was look at her 15-year-old daughter's battered, lifeless body before closing the casket and burying her. “I wouldn't wish that on nobody. I'll never get over it,” Volneck said last week. “Never.” Twenty-nine years later and recovering from surgery for lung cancer, Volneck still does not know who killed her only child. Maryland State Police recovered Lorraine “Lori” Zimmerman's body from a wooded area outside Boonsboro in April 1984.

Q: We have a koi and goldfish pond with a few plants in it. We have heard that we should add salt to the pond, but we are unclear about how much is OK, how much is too much, what it does and whether it will hurt the plants. A: Let's cover the reason why first. The fish's body is saltier than the water in the pond. So, water wants to even out the two different salt levels to one average level. The fish have to expend calories to keep salt in and water out of their body. They have a slime coat, scales, gills, kidneys and skin all trying to keep the water out, but they are constantly breathing and swallowing water in. This energy could be used for growth, immune system work, etc., if the water were saltier.

Sometimes, she says, when times are tough and she's feeling lonely, she still cries. It might last 10 seconds. It might last longer. But deep down, Teresa Earnhardt, auto racing's most famous widow and one of NASCAR's most influential team owners, knows that the pain will never go away. "I hate it," Teresa Earnhardt once told NBC's Dateline news program. "I hate it so bad, feeling bad, that I just turn it off. I miss him and I always will. Just terribly. But I'm not going to feel bad about it. I'm going to feel glad about what I had. " What she had was, in a word, everything.

Despite the changes, Smith said he remembers where the Chevrolet Caprice with New Jersey tags was parked. The car was used by Beltway snipers John Allen Muhammad and Lee Boyd Malvo, whose shooting spree terrorized the Washington, D.C., area for 21 days in 2002.
