Packed parking lots brought out positives and negatives about the 2006 Ford F-250 Amarillo Special Edition test pickup, which spent a great deal of time battling big-city traffic. Operating this truck in the city is a common scenario for a pickup built to be seen, although it's more at home on a ranch or the open road. Maneuvering the 245.6-inch-long Super Duty Crew Cab 4x4 through the tight, crowded lots was tedious ? especially when trying to gracefully work my way into or back out of the slips.

" "Practice Random Acts of Kindness and Senseless Acts of Beauty. " Now, the Maryland Motor Vehicle Administration wants young drivers to add a bumper sticker that sends a very practical message to other motorists: "ROOKIE driver. " --cont from front page -- In a pilot program this month, the MVA is handing out the yellow-striped magnetic stickers with black lettering to everyone who receives a learner's permit.

pepperb@herald-mail.com It was a romantic gesture, but when Ernie Reese drove his beat-up station wagon onto the Demolition Derby's mud-filled pit Monday night, the message "Happy Anniversary Cookie" painted on its back soon was dented, caked with dirt and far from lovey-dovey. Reese, in his first attempt, plowed and rammed his baby blue 1986 Chevrolet Caprice station wagon against 10 other cars at the Ag Expo's annual Demolition Derby. Before long, the Fairplay man was stuck in the mud, lifting a white towel above his face as his competitors spun mud into his car's windowless cabin, revving their motors and crashing his car like it still had a wheel to stand on. The biggest instigator was a dull painted black 1976 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme driven by Tracy Abbott.

Commentary Ah, but it is the dawn of a great and wonderful century for us guys. Never before have the fates smiled on our gender with such warmth and understanding, never has our future looked so bright or our prospects so rich. It is a great time to be a man. And no, I am not speaking about the multitude of new electronic technologies, all-inclusive sports television packages or the popularity of Texas Hold'em. This is something far more basic and something far more valuable to our station and purpose in life.

"I wonder if anyone else feels as demeaned as I do by this incessant natter over the paucity of the teachers' proposed 8.5 percent salary increase. It's obvious that the 'new Sunday op-ed columnist' has moved the educated noneducators of Washington County to the rear of the bus. It appears that we are, as the Catskills comedians used to say, 'chopped liver.' Well, at least we still have the privilege of paying taxes, and taxes and more taxes. You may sign me, voting with my feet, out of Washington County.

daniels@herald-mail.com BOONSBORO - About a dozen members of Mount Nebo United Methodist Church parked their cars in the parking lot behind the church Saturday afternoon and popped their trunks. Instead of spare tires and lug wrenches, they revealed pirates' booties of candy, pumpkins, an oversized polar bear, teddy bears and, in one instance, a statue of a mechanical dancing witch singing "I Like Candy. " "We decorate our trunks with whatever there may be. This is my first shot at it," said the Rev. Robert Brennan, pastor of Mount Nebo, who was wearing a set of bear's ears.
