Colton Welsh, 12, and his 5-year-old brother, Quinton, couldn't figure out what all of the commotion was Saturday in downtown Waynesboro. The boys scrambled around their house and raced to their mother, Genny Welsh, for answers about the noise and music coming from Main Street. “The kids got up and said, 'There's something going on, and I think it's a parade,'” said Genny Welsh, who knew it was the town's eighth annual Market Day. “We came out to spend the day together,” Welsh said while sitting with her sons on the sidewalk munching on hot dogs and french fries.

charlestown@herald-mail.com MARTINSBURG, W.VA. - With close attention and a little imagination Sunday in Martinsburg, you could have taken a trip south, way down south, for Christmas. And the authentic Mexican cuisine helped you get there. Because of the growing Hispanic population in the Eastern Panhandle, a group of six United Methodist churches in Martinsburg decided to put on their version of a traditional Mexican Christmas celebration Sunday afternoon. It was called Las Posadas, and in Mexico, it's a big event.

It's been almost 10 years since Tim and Susan Cook's lives were cut short in a car accident, but their lives have created a lasting legacy for the community they loved. At Saturday's Tim and Susan Cook Memorial ChambersFest One-Mile Race, runners came out to honor the couple's memory and raise money for the Tim and Susan Cook Memorial Scholarship Fund.

Here's my nickel. It used to be two cents, but inflation got in the way. · By now, just about everything that can be written about the Americans' performance in the Ryder Cup has. But here's a thought I haven't seen mentioned ... Back in 1999, the Ryder Cup was a major event. It was more than just a weekend this country's golfers circled on their calendars. Sports fans in general - and not only the ones who play a fair bit of the grand ol' game - watched the event on TV. The point is, more than a month before the 1999 Ryder Cup was held, people were talking about it over office water coolers.

Richard A. "Dick" Henson, test pilot, aviation pioneer and philanthropist, has done a lot in his 89 years. But one thing is missing from his impressive resume: Henson never has been a grand marshal. The honor will be his, and the honor will be Hagerstown's, at the 75th Alsatia Mummers' Parade Saturday, Oct. 30, beginning at 7 p.m. The Hagerstown native for whom Hagerstown Regional Airport-Richard A. Henson Field is named, calls his weekend visit a homecoming. "Hagerstown is dear to my heart.

By KERRY LYNN FRALEY Staff Writer Civil War re-enactor Brian Mazur isn't worried that rainy weather will keep down the number of participants in the 135th Commemoration of the Battle of Antietam this weekend. It's the importance of the battle not the event's anticipated record-setting size that matters, said Mazur, 43, of Royal Oak, Mich. "I could care less. It's Sharpsburg, 135. It better be accurate," said Mazur, who said his unit - the 4th Texas Infantry, Company E - is "hard-core" about historical authenticity.

GREENCASTLE, Pa. - The best singers in the world and the best dancers? Russ Clever says they're on television. The entertainers performing in Greencastle tonight through Saturday, though, are your brothers, fathers and neighbors, who just might tease you during the show. "It's different," Clever said. "I think the reason why this is the 73rd Minstrel Show and it goes on and on, it's certainly not because Greencastle has all the talent in 100 miles. ... I think our biggest asset is you can't turn on the TV and see an old-time minstrel show.

Like the steady rain that saves the parched plot of corn, it seems that "The Big Read" is coming just in time to revive Americans' reading habit. We urge everyone in Washington County and the surrounding areas to participate in the local version of this attempt to get people reading again, and just as important, to think about what they have read. If you doubt that this is a problem, consider the results of an Associated Press-Ipsos poll released earlier this month. One quarter of the adults surveyed said they had not read a single book in the past year.

andrewm@herald-mail.com The Hub Cup is more like a home-improvement tool than a home invasion. That's how North Hagerstown wrestling coach Greg Slick sees it. Of the 17 Maryland schools competing in the Hubs' gym today and Saturday, 14 are located outside of Washington County. Of the roughly 200 wrestlers filling the 14 weight-class brackets, 18 are ranked in the state. Of those 18, 14 are in the big-school (Class 4A-3A) division. "We don't want to plan a tournament just to get a bunch of chumps here," Slick said.
