chambersburg@herald-mail.com CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - Selecting pieces of apparel from piles of robes, sheets, scarves and sashes, Tammy Blose draped one and then another around Jane Strickler Mackey until she was suitably garbed for the role she would play in the Falling Spring Presbyterian Church's living crche. "I've been doing this since I grew up here," Mackey said. As a child, "I was always the angel sitting on the roof" of the manger, she said. Sunday night, in a piece of ad hoc casting, Mackey was one of the Three Wise Men. "We get the people to come in and when they get here we decide who gets what part ... or who fits the costume," said Blose, the church's Christian education director.

"All Pets Are Off -- A Collection of Hairy Columns" is a compilation of about 10 years' worth of Rowland's columns, all featuring the wily antics of animals, including past and present pets, and wildlife. He said he came up with the title after his publisher, who happens to be his wife, rejected his first 10 title suggestions.
