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.

Moments later, after members of the jury were dismissed, Kees screamed, "I'm going to spend my life in prison because their son wanted to get high?"

LEITERSBURG - For the past 29 years, the Leitersburg Haunted House has thrilled and terrified visitors.

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.

Wendy Kidd was working inside a client's home, cleaning the master bathroom when, suddenly, she heard a noise in the bedroom. Peeking around a corner, Kidd gasped when she saw a man - the husband in the family that owned the house - beginning to undress. “I said, 'What are you doing?!!'” Kidd remembers screaming. As it turned out, the man hadn't known she was there, and he was just changing his clothes. “I don't know who was more embarrassed - him or I,” Kidd said.
