Final preparations are under way for the seventh annual Market Day on Main Street in Waynesboro. About 75 percent of 2010's vendors are returning for Saturday's events, according to Andrea Struble, spokeswoman for nonprofit organization Mainstreet Waynesboro Inc. The organization advertised Market Day on some national craft show websites. "Because of those, I'd say we have 15 or 20 new vendors that have never been here before," Struble said. Held from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Market Day features craft vendors, food, a beer garden, live music and entertainment, a chili cook-off, a scarecrow contest, activities for children, and sidewalk sales from downtown businesses.

Everyone attending “Rockin' at Riverbottom,” a fundraiser to help the town of Williamsport begin a long, expensive journey to upgrade its public utilities, was having a good time, but the event wasn't living up to its financial expectations. The rock concert was promoted by the Williamsport Town Council to help the community pay its share toward the cleanup of Chesapeake Bay. The town's share is pegged at $1.1 billion by 2025 for upgrades to stormwater, wastewater and septic systems.

 The Potomac River has forever been the life vein of the residents of Williamsport.

Music ends at 8:50 p.m. Councilman Bill G. Green, who is also coordinator for the event, said there's been a lot of talk about the event hosting a beer garden, which he said loses the focus on the event itself — to help foot the bill for a new state Watershed Implementation Plan (WIP)

Sparks fly during fireworks discussion MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - A discussion of the city of Martinsburg's annual Fourth of July fireworks show turned into a small argument Thursday night over how much to spend for the display. Councilman Max Parkinson said a two-person committee recommended spending $10,000 for the display. Mayor George Karos and other council members said they felt that was too high. Karos recommended spending $7,500. Councilman Richard Yauger suggested reducing the figure to $7,000.

MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - When Ron Gardner became involved in organizing Bike Night in 2004, he pushed to have proceeds benefit Hospice of the Panhandle. "I think it's an outstanding organization that provides assistance to people in times of need, allows them to stay home when passing away," says Gardner, a sergeant with the Berkeley County Sheriff's Office. In the early 1990s, Gardner saw how a hospice group in Florida helped his younger brother Mark stay at home as he lost his battle with cancer.

HAGERSTOWN -- The Hagerstown Suns didn't get a chance to break in their brand new $40,000 infield Friday at Municipal Stadium. The home opener was rained out, disappointing hundreds of fans who ate hot dogs under whatever cover they could find as a torrential downpour hit the park. At times, the rain seemed to fall sideways, caused by high winds that sent vendors scrambling to keep their wares from blowing on to East Memorial Boulevard. The weather was near perfect in Hagerstown for most of the day. It turned sour, however, just before the game with the Lake County Captains was to begin at 6:35 p.m. Joey Burriss, 11, and Tyler Hess, 10, anxiously waited while ominous storm clouds appeared over the stadium.

HAGERSTOWN - The lead singer of a fledgling band called Old School did something rare on Saturday: Stole the stage from Funny Money's Steve Whiteman on his home turf. Whiteman, who lives in Halfway, didn't mind, though. He stepped aside for his 11-year-old daughter Carly's debut in front of hundreds of people. As she launched into Led Zeppelin's "Rock and Roll," Carly looked at ease within seconds. She hopped onto a platform on the stage and shook hands that fans thrust at her. Carly was a surprise for people who flocked to the North American Rod & Gun Club near Hagerstown for Funny Money and three other bands.

HAGERSTOWN -- Hops are a natural at a baseball stadium -- but grapes? The Hagerstown Suns added wine to this year's beer-tasting festival to see what fans thought. Reed Hunley, the team's director of promotions and special events, said the Suns might hold a wine tasting and figured this was a good way to start. So, along with about 90 types of beer available at Municipal Stadium on Saturday, patrons had a chance to sample 16 types of wine. Tickets were $15 in advance or $18 at the gate.
