A Boonsboro man accused of sexually abusing a girl in 2007-08 will not be tried on the two charges for which he could have faced a sentence of life in prison. Before the trial of Gerald Wayne Hubbard got under way Monday in Washington County Circuit Court, the state dismissed charges against him of first-degree rape and first-degree sex offense. Because those charges carry possible life sentences, the defense and the state are allowed additional strikes during jury selection - 20 for the defense and 10 for the state, Assistant State's Attorney Brett Wilson said after court concluded.

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.

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.

Vickie Nichols of Largo, Fla., was seeking a restaurant's recipe for Texas Tornado Cake, noting that the dessert had crushed pineapple in it and a coconut topping. Anne Bryant of Sun City Center, Fla., sent a recipe -- but not the restaurant recipe. This is a very easy recipe to make, suited to any skill level. When I first read this recipe, I realized there's no fat in it, meaning no butter or oil, and there's no vanilla. Well, the lack of butter or oil didn't affect the taste, but I did miss the vanilla.

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.
