HANCOCK - Mayor Daniel A. Murphy poked, prodded and peered at the three pickups entered in the "Ugly Truck Contest" on Saturday afternoon. In the end, though, it really was no contest. Marco Ward's 1977 Ford was head and shoulders above - or perhaps below - the competition. "I think it was hands down," said Murphy, who asked to judge the contest. "Even the owner of the second-place vehicle, I think, acquiesced. " The "Ugly Truck Contest" was part of a block party sponsored by the Hancock Baptist Church, which was founded nearly two years ago by Baptists from Hagerstown and Berkeley Springs, W.Va.
