State Sen. Richard Alloway is typically clean shaven while in the capital, but the legislator representing Franklin and Adams counties now sports a beard growing longer by the day. Alloway, a Republican, is growing the beard in an effort to raise money for Women In Need in Franklin County and PA Tourette Syndrome Alliance Inc. in Adams County. He hands out a flier about the causes when asked about the facial hair. "It's become a conversation piece," he said. Alloway said he won't shave as long as the Washington Capitals are in the National Hockey League playoffs.

WILLIAMSPORT - For Kelly Beard, it was simply a matter of throwing strikes. But for Tom Dzur, it wasn't quite that easy. "This is our fourth close game in a row. ... That's hard on an old man," said Dzur after his Williamsport softball team escaped with a 4-3 MVAL Antietam win over North Hagerstown Wednesday. The Hubs collected a pair of singles in the seventh off Beard, the Wildcats' starter, but a double play thwarted a possible game-tying rally. "I just knew I had to throw strikes," said Beard.

pepperb@herald-mail.com HAGERSTOWN - Asking Charles Edward Beard Jr. to look at her, Eileen Martin leaned forward from behind a Washington County Courthouse bench and told him through tears how she "wakes up every night" recalling the night she left her house to place a blanket over 17-year-old April Lynn Shumaker's body because Beard decided to drive drunk. Beard, 33, whose last known address before his arrest was 106 S. Mont Valla Ave. in Hagerstown, pleaded guilty Thursday to manslaughter by motor vehicle and driving under the influence in connection with the Aug. 25, 2004, death of Shumaker.

She’s a weaver who turns fabric into wearable art — a refugee from the high-tech world and the age of quick purchases. The rhythmic clacking of the loom tells you this is a craft that requires patience. But the end result is worth it. From jackets and vests to hats and scarves, Beard creates one-of-a-kind pieces that show off her award-winning creativity. She will display many designs this weekend during the 40th annual Mountain Heritage Arts and Crafts Festival at Sam Michael’s Park in Shenandoah Junction, W.Va., just outside of Harpers Ferry, W.Va.

Catoctin already a step ahead of last season By ADELINE STAEBLER / Staff Correspondent THURMONT - Catoctin's wrestling team went into every dual meet last year down by 36 points. The Cougars, who only had six varsity wrestlers, went the entire season without a dual meet win. This season got off to a much better start Friday when Catoctin defeated Thomas Johnson 48-36 in the opening round of the Catoctin Duals. "(The win) was good, a long time coming and my kids work really hard and I think they deserved this," Catoctin coach Mike Telemeco said.

Director has a way with kids By LAURA ERNDE Staff Writer Jim Deaner likes to tell "his kiddies" at the Boys and Girls Club that each gray hair in his salt-and-pepper beard is named after one of them. "This is Eric," he said, yanking on a chin hair. He rubbed the other side of his chin and said, "this patch over here is Justin. " But Deaner isn't angry at them. He's smiling the whole time. Maybe he knows that he wouldn't be prematurely gray if he didn't care so much.
