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.

It began with piece of junk mail. Because you were busy, you tossed it on a table, and moved on to other, more important things in your life. But the next day, a magazine and a store catalog landed there, plus several birthday cards from friends and a week's worth of newspapers. Every time you passed by, you considered sorting through the items and discarding what you didn't need. Instead, you continued adding to the pile, telling yourself you'd get around to straightening things up as soon as you had some free time.

A 34-year-old man fell to his death from High Rock in northeastern Washington County on Monday. Michael Paul Liller of Thurmont, Md., was determined to be dead by medics who descended 100 feet to where he landed, officials on the scene said. Liller jumped from the rock formation's peak to a metal grate used by hang gliders at about 4 p.m. He then jumped to another rock, lost his balance and fell, according to Washington County (Md.) Sheriff's Office Sgt. Daryl Sanders. About 12 people were at the popular lookout spot when the fall occurred, Sanders said.

When I was a teen working at a Clear Spring deli, a man walked up to my counter and ordered a meat grinder. I looked back at the meat slicer behind me and told him that I couldn't sell it to him. He'd have to talk to my boss. That summer I found out (after an eye roll and a few choice words) that grinders are what New Englanders call subs. They're also called submarines, hoagies, heroes and Po'Boys, depending on where you grew up. A Western Maryland favorite, the steamer, also has its own identity crisis.

Residents of Sandy Hook might not know much about how their little town sprang at the base of Elk Ridge at the southern tip of Washington County, but the houses seem to know. Lined up like sentinels on one side of the narrow, gravelly Sandyhook Road, the houses, many more than 100 years old, all face the same direction, their windows gazing out over layers of American history: the road, the railroad, the C&O Canal and the Potomac River. Today, these features bring in more hikers and paddlers on weekends than the town has residents, giving Sandy Hook its identity as a place to hike into from the C&O Canal towpath or the Appalachian Trail for a soda or to put a raft in the river.

Editor's note: The following story about the former Fort Ritchie U.S. Army Base is one in an occasional series of stories about some of the treasures of Washington County's past. CASCADE - What was to become Fort Ritchie U.S. Army base in Cascade started out as the Buena Vista Ice Co., became a National Guard camp and then was taken over by the U.S. Army to train soldiers in military intelligence and psychological warfare during World War II. It wound up its military years as a command center for Site R, a government installation known locally as the Underground Pentagon, built under Raven Rock Mountain in neighboring Pennsylvania.

As the first African-American woman to achieve the rank of major general in the U.S. Army, Marcia M. Anderson helped inspire Letterkenny Army Depot employees Friday as they observed Black History Month. In a keynote speech focusing on “Black Women in American Culture and History,” the 30-year career soldier spoke of her personal philosophy for success. “It's not your ZIP code or your family history that determines where you end up in life so much as what's in your heart and what's in your brain,” Anderson told Letterkenny employees.
