WASHINGTON COUNTY -- A cat that was stuck in a tree for nearly eight days is back with its owner, who was away on vacation while her pet was the center of attention. On Monday, Jessica Piper and her boyfriend, Lance Turner, picked up Boots the cat from the Humane Society of Washington County. Piper said Boots, a 10-month-old male, belongs to her 6-year-old daughter, Alyssa, who was thrilled to have him back and considers him a "movie star" based on the publicity he got. Alyssa cut out pictures of Boots that ran in The Herald-Mail as the newspaper covered the cat's plight.

tarar@herald-mail.com SMITHSBURG - Preston Law placed a pair of worn combat boots under a flagpole bearing the American flag at Smithsburg's Veterans Park. He wondered, with others in the crowd of about 50 people who attended the Smithsburg Memorial Day Commemoration on Friday, whether the World War II combat boots he had picked up at an antique show were worn by someone who had died in action, a female soldier or someone who had made it home from the war alive. "This much we do know," Law, of the Smithsburg Historical Society, said.

Alissa Miller, a junior at North Hagerstown High School, competed in November at the Virginia Horse Shows Association (VHSA) finals in Lexington, Va. Alissa placed sixth out of 60 in the Junior Hunter Pleasure division. Alissa has been riding horses for nine years and she's not stopping anytime soon. Boots, her horse, is a quarter horse-appaloosa and she competes in at least 20 shows a year. But why in Lexington? "Because I knew there would be colleges there so I could get exposure, and if I would want to sell my horse, the price would go up significantly," she said.

With his toes crunched together in red high heels, Daryl Ewan of Amberson, Pa., tried to maintain his precarious balance wobbling four blocks down Main Street Chambersburg in Friday's Walk a Mile in Her Shoes. “I have a few blisters, but it was worth it,” he said. Approximately 125 men wedged their feet into women's high heels and walked in the first Women in Needs (WIN) Walk a Mile in Her Shoes on Friday. The event was a symbolic gesture to raise awareness on the issue of violence against women.

Violet Golden and her husband, John Robert “Bob” Golden, raised their seven children in a modest home in Hancock, near an orchard and within walking distance to downtown Hancock, since Violet never drove. Their home was a gathering place for neighborhood children, who were drawn to the home for the activities Violet encouraged. There were forts made out of apple crates and softball games played in the orchard. A sizable hill behind the house was popular for sledding in the winter, and Violet opened the basement door and invited the sledders to warm up around the basement's coal furnace while she served hot chocolate.

Using their fingers or plastic forks, dozens of people invited to South Hagerstown High School on Wednesday tasted a variety of potential new menu items as the county school system moves toward offering students healthier foods that use fresher ingredients. Most of the items were new, such as a curried chicken wrap and Asian vegetable noodle lettuce wraps, and others were an attempt at a healthier version of existing dishes offered at schools, said Jeff Proulx, supervisor of Food and Nutrition Services for Washington County Public Schools.

Seven years ago, swarthy assassin-turned-good-guy Puss in Boots (Antonio Banderas) stole the show in "Shrek 2. "  The film itself was clever and funny, but Puss made it even better.   As the series went along, the films became much worse and Puss became less appealing along with them. Now the decision has been made to remove the ogres from the equation and see if the films are any better with Puss center stage.   The resulting film is about as unfunny as the lesser "Shrek" movies and proves that their critical failure had less to do with the choice of characters and more to do with the choice of writers.

I'm told that this update on 1984's “Footloose” is a pretty faithful remake of the original, which I've never seen. If that's true then the original wasn't very good either. This version is dumb, poorly written, and doesn't have nearly enough dancing. A good remake should make its audience want to see the original so they can study the source material. This remake makes me even less likely to see the original for fear of basically seeing the same bad movie twice. The premise seems like it was taken from a cartoon for toddlers.
