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.

When I was a kid growing up in Hagerstown's South End, there were certain things that always seemed to be part of the summer ritual. The list usually included swimming at Municipal Pool, feeding the ducks at City Park, taking in a Hagerstown Suns game and most importantly — eating a snow cone with seafoam. We grew up in a Smurf blue house on South Street, which was prime walking distance to our favorite snow cone site. A sweet older lady, whose name I can't remember, lived just up the block on South Potomac Street and made snow cones on her side porch.
