Commentary Hot dog. I mean hot sirloin. I want to tip my hat to Martha Flach, and I don't even know who in the heck she is. All I know is that The New York Times picked up on her match.com personal ad and wrote a story about it. Remember the good old days when reporters used to monitor stuff like police logs and court records to dig up news stories? No, never mind, I don't want to get distracted by that, because in this case the reporter in charge of the lonely hearts beat did the nation a great service.

WAYNESBORO, Pa. - Some of James Petre's neighbors went before the Washington Township Supervisors on Monday to raise a stink about the family-run mulch business on Pa. 997 south of Waynesboro. "Basically, I have problems with the whole operation. I live the closest, and I have to look at this," said Deborah Gettel, who has lived next door since 1992. She presented the township supervisors with pictures of what she described as "piles of junk" on the 36-acre Petre farm. Open since 2004, J&R Mulch & More sells mulch and more, including stones, swing sets and lawn furniture, according to Petre.

GREENCASTLE, Pa. - Ron Hoffman will order more than 9,000 pounds of beef this month. Needless to say, it's not all for him.

"The first three Saturdays in August, that's the way it's always been," said Hoffman, order director for the roast. "We order roughly 3,000 pounds each week and it goes.

Images from Ohio show many of Chardon High School's 1,100 students walking down tree-lined streets late last week as they returned to their brown-brick school building just days after a deadly shooting. Without the “Chardon” shirts, it could almost be easy to mistake the pictures for ones taken in Franklin County's communities.
