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.

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.

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.

Editor's note: Each Sunday, The Herald-Mail publishes "A Life Remembered. " This continuing series takes a look back -- through the eyes of family, friends, co-workers and others -- at a member of the community who died recently. Today's "A Life Remembered" is about Alan Aubrey Marriner, who died Aug. 31 at the age of 89. His obituary was published in the Sept. 2 edition of The Herald-Mail. Alan Aubrey Marriner would have been the first to describe himself as a thinker. Right up to the end of his life, he was learning new languages and reading everything he could get his hands on. But the life Alan lived bore out that he also was very much a doer -- both in his community and where his family was concerned.

Don't be fooled by the kid-friendly PG rating attached to "Rango. " Don't be fooled by the kid-friendly Nickelodeon Studios logo attached to the film. Don't be fooled by the ads that paint "Rango" as a kid-friendly animated film with a cute chameleon lead. "Rango" is not kid-friendly. Don't be fooled into taking your family to see it.   The film opens with an unnamed chameleon (voiced by Johnny Depp) living a life of contentment inside his terrarium. The terrarium is in the back of a car, the car hits a bump, the terrarium goes flying, it shatters and the chameleon is left stranded in a desert in the middle of nowhere.

There’s been a lot of talk about the economy lately. Couple that with the role of federal, state and local government, and you have a subject that will usually set anyone’s hair on fire. So, what is the role of government in the economy? On one side, you have conservatives, who believe the government’s role in the economy must be “hands off.” The more conservative in nature, the more and more hands off. Some conservatives beat their chests and shout, “Don’t spend taxpayer money (often expressed as “my money”)
