pepperb@herald-mail.com The 26th Annual Showcase of Marching Bands left an audience in the thousands clapping for more. Hugh Allen, 71, said he doesn't have any children or grandchildren playing in any of the area bands, but he's come to the showcase for the past four years because he likes band music. "I especially liked Clear Spring, Hagerstown North and Boonsboro," he said. Gretchen Love, 44, said she was a South Hagerstown High Rebel and so is her niece, whom she came to see, but she said she supported all of the band members.

chambersburg@herald-mail.com FORT LOUDON, Pa. - Many veterans lie buried in Stenger Hill Cemetery, but for most, the village of Fort Loudon had been their home. In one corner of the cemetery, however, is the grave of a young man who died in what for him was a foreign land. "They figure he was one of the men on the raid that strayed this way," Anna Rotz said of the unknown Confederate soldier's grave. The soldier was shot July 30, 1864, the same time that Confederate raiders were occupying and burning Chambersburg, Pa., about 16 miles to the east.

WAYNESBORO,Pa. - For Waynesboro football coach Darwin Seiler, the personal frustration of his team's latest loss - a 47-13 drubbing Friday night by the Steel-High Steamrollers - showed only briefly on his face as his Indians knelt tightly together in a circle surrounded by the marching band after the game. As the last chords of "Amazing Grace" fell away, Seiler began walking from player to player and coach to coach offering a few private words. Steel-High (5-1, 3-0) had just unleashed the passing of quarterback Jerel Lewis and the speed and athleticism of Sean Alexander and Austen Brown as the Rollers ran away from the Indians (1-5, 1-2)

Few, if any, of the Penn State Mont Alto students gathered for a candlelight vigil Sunday night had met Joe Paterno. Gusts of winter wind threatened to extinguish their flames as they shared thoughts regarding a man they called an icon, a father figure and a legend. Paterno, the college's head football coach from 1966 to 2011, died Sunday at age 85 from lung cancer. “Our university is changed because of him, and I'm proud to go to Penn State,” said Chelsea Pittman, a sophomore from Chambersburg, Pa. Pittman, a human development and family studies major, was one of the students who pulled together the memorial in about 10 hours.
