bonnieb@herald-mail.com QUINCY, Pa. - While there is no ox at the 70th annual Quincy Ox Roast, a few of the helpers remember when an ox was roasted on a spit over an open fire. From 1936 to 1964, the event was held in nearby Benedict's Woods. It now is at the Quincy Community Center. A major fund-raiser for the center, the ox roast draws 6,000 to 7,000 people over four days, according to board member Larry Forsythe of Waynesboro, Pa. He estimated that $65,000 to $70,000 is taken in before expenses.

Erck III, a member of San Mar's Board of Directors, said the San Mar Children's Home Bull Roast & Open House began in the 1980s, but was canceled six years ago because it didn't make money. He said the event was resurrected this year after several people asked for its return. "We're feeling good," Erck said. "We sold about 450 tickets.

I was 4 years old the first time I tasted beef jerky. I had consumed the slaughtered before, in the form of steak, pork chops and so on, but never before were these sacrificed animals so satisfying. Little did I know that this small event would lead me to understand the meaning of my life. Biting into a stick of jerky is a savage act, stemming from one's primal nature. It isn't as elegant a procedure as eating steak, in which it is custom to hold the steak in place with a fork in one hand while making delicate incisions into the tender meat with a knife in the other.

Steve Martin's son, Tim, sold steers, lambs and other animals during his time in 4-H, earning enough money to help pay for his education at West Virginia University.
