Wallace placed close to slaying By MARLO BARNHART / Staff Writer A tow truck driver, testifying Tuesday at Thomas Clifford Wallace's murder trial, identified Wallace as the man to whom he gave a ride near a crime scene on Aug. 20, 1997. Wallace, 33, formerly of Hagerstown, is charged with first- and second-degree murder in the death of Darrius Allen Fetterhoff, 58, of Greencastle, Pa. During the second day of testimony in Wallace's Washington County Circuit Court trial, forensic chemist Jeff Kercheval told the jurors that broken eyeglasses, a smashed watch, hair found in Fetterhoff's car and stains on its back-seat fabric convinced him there had been a struggle in that car. Wallace, 33, formerly of Hagerstown, also is charged with first-degree assault, felony theft, car theft and unauthorized use of a motor vehicle.

HALFWAY -- Nick Adenhart made many lasting impressions in his youth while pitching in the Halfway Little League. His family made sure he made at least one more. Family and friends of Adenhart made a $5,000 donation to the Halfway organization Wednesday during a ceremony at home plate before the start of the Maryland District 1 9-10 Tournament game with Federal. It was the first payment made from The Nick Adenhart Memorial Fund, a charitable fund created in the Williamsport High School graduate's name to benefit Little League baseball.

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.

Howard Swint, “a common man running a common campaign to represent the common people,” wants to wrest the 12-year Second District U.S. House seat from Republican incumbent Shelley Moore Capito. Swint, 53, of Charleston, W.Va., said Monday he is running such a low-key campaign that he has yet to raise “enough money to count.” He doesn't accept campaign contributions from corporations or special-interest groups. “I only accept individual donations,” he said. Swint seems undaunted that he's facing a mountainous fight for Capito's seat.

A Maugansville man who testified 11 years ago that Ronald Harshman told him where he dumped a body claimed in court Thursday that he lied. “You've never spoken to (Harshman) in your life?” an attorney asked. “No, I haven't,” Keith Granlun said. As Harshman's attorney seeks a new trial, he is trying to demonstrate witnesses perjured themselves in July 2001 in exchange for special consideration from the Franklin County (Pa.) District Attorney's office. Harshman was convicted of first-degree murder in the presumed death of Melvin Elwood Snyder, whose body was never found.

Eating ice cream to beat the summer heat is one of America's favorite pastimes.   Homemade ice cream can be a special treat, but it can also become a threat because of salmonellosis. While commercially manufactured ice cream is typically made with pasteurized eggs or egg products, recipes for homemade ice cream often use raw eggs in the base mixture. If your favorite ice cream recipe uses uncooked eggs, it is time to replace or revise it. Those raw eggs may contain salmonella bacteria that can cause foodborne illness.
