MARTINSBURG, W.VA. - Describing the murder of 14-year-old Miana Stewart as the most troubling and saddest case he has seen in all of his years on the bench, 23rd Judicial Circuit judge David H. Sanders on Monday added 80 years to Roger Dwayne Smith's life sentence in prison for the Gerrardstown, W.Va., girl's death in October 2005. "This case strikes at all the fundamental suppositions that we have," said Sanders, who offered Smith no reprieve on his 26th birthday. In December, Smith entered guilty pleas to possession of stolen vehicle, attempted murder, malicious wounding, fleeing on foot from an officer, first-degree robbery and first-degree murder.

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.

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.

Two months ago, Jason Kuehler’s friends were feeding him and wiping his brow as he lay incapacitated in a burn unit. On Sunday, Kuehler was able to join them at a fundraiser for his medical expenses. The MOMS Club of Chambersburg West hosted a spaghetti dinner to continue its support of the Kuehler family in the weeks following a March 19 fire in which the father of two was badly burned. “The support has been overwhelming,” said Kuehler, 33. Kuehler, assistant chief of Franklin Fire Co., suffered injuries when a fire “flashed” in a mobile home at 1449 Frank Road in Hamilton Township, Pa. The Chambersburg resident continues to undergo physical therapy in hopes of regaining full use of his hands, which he was initially told would need to be amputated.
