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.

HEDGESVILLE, W.Va. - The Allensville Road low water crossing over Back Creek near Hedgesville, W.Va., was the second most "lethal" structure statewide when it was closed soon after a motorcyclist died there in 2004, a Division of Highways official said Wednesday. In December 1990, six members of a Berkeley County family died when the car they were riding in was swept off the structure, DOH area engineer Bill Shanklin recounted at a dedication ceremony held for the crossing's replacement - the Allensville Memorial Bridge.

Poinsettias were introduced into the United States almost 200 years ago by Joel Poinsett, the first U.S. Ambassador to Mexico. They were given the common name poinsettia in his honor.   Over time, poinsettias have become the best-selling flowering potted plants in the U.S.  They are tidy attractive plants with clusters of several colored leaves, or bracts. Bracts are typically red, pink or cream and are often mistaken as part of the flower. However, actual poinsettia flowers are small and yellowish green; they are located within the bract clusters.

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.

Massie, 33, of Hagerstown, was given the maximum sentence for second-degree murder Oct. 25 in Washington County Circuit Court. At the trial, the prosecution chipped away at other possible scenarios for the slaying of Debra K. Massie. Rings were left on the victim's fingers and gold jewelry was untouched in her bedroom, ruling out robbery.

julieg@herald-mail.com Red, yellow, orange or pink? Heirloom or hybrid? Does the skin color or breeding of a tomato really indicate whether it's less acidic and does it matter? It's generally assumed that orange or yellow tomatoes are going to be lower in acid than red tomatoes, but that's not necessarily true, says Jon Traunfeld, regional specialist in fruits and vegetables with the Maryland Cooperative Extension's Home and Garden Information Center in Ellicott City, Md. Some yellow varieties are high-acid and some red are low, local experts say. For example, Jetstar, a red tomato, is low-acid, says Steve Bogash, regional horticulture educator for Penn State Cooperative Extension in Franklin County, Pa. Seed catalogs usually note whether a tomato cultivar or variety is low-acid, but people shopping locally for low-acid tomatoes might be pressed to find somebody at a produce stand who knows for a fact whether their tomato is low-acid, Bogash says.
