HAGERSTOWN - Juanita May Queen, who offered advice to local radio listeners on topics like caring for flowers and cleaning house, died last week. Queen was a "walking encyclopedia" who helped people without wanting anything in return, radio host Lou Scally said Sunday. Queen, 103, died Friday at Beverly Healthcare Center in Hagerstown. Before suffering health problems in recent years, Queen was a fixture on WJEJ's Phone Party program, Scally said. "Of all the years that we had her on the radio, indeed, a lot of people thought that she was an employee of the radio station," Scally said.

A city-dweller who typically spends most of her time indoors, Pearl loves to roam free in our sizeable, fenced-in back yard. Sometime during the course of our hearty holiday dinner, we heard the dog snarling out on the lawn. One of my older children, who was closest to the doorway of our crowded dining room, bolted out to see what was going on. He came running back in with news none too pleasing to my toddler and preschool-aged children.
