CALIFORNIA, Pa. - For California University, it was all logical. All the Vulcans had to do was "drive long and prosper. " California moved at will Saturday, scoring on 10 of its 13 possessions, but did a whole lot more as the Vulcans transported themselves to the NCAA Division II semifinals with a 58-38 victory over Shepherd University in the Northeast Region final at Hepner-Bailey Field. California found all the holes against the Rams' defense, which had been considered pretty stingy by West Virginia Intercollegiate Athletic Conference standards.

The Hagerstown resident and his wife, Jen, took four days to drive cross-country in a rented van with the 1931 Harley-Davidson VL that Jason Sheets restored in the back. His bike was chosen for Best Flathead Class, Sheets said in a phone interview. “I saw tons and tons of really neat bikes.

Jason Sheets spends a lot of time in his Jefferson Boulevard garage. A machinist by trade, he works full time for Central Precision in Boonsboro, but weekends and evenings are reserved for his own projects and customers. “I can do machining and welding on anything, lawn mowers, engines, it doesn't matter,” Sheets said. Sheets also uses his skills as a custom car and motorcycle builder. He got his motorcycle license when he was 18. He's been doing work part time out of his shop for about 10 years and recently took a two-week road trip to California with his wife, Jen Sheets, to participate in the Born Free 5 show.

Winning an award for best sound and a nomination for best screenplay at the Idyllwild International Festival of Cinema in California for “Greencastle” was somewhat of a miracle for homegrown filmmaker Koran Dunbar. “We're pretty much a bunch of nobodies,” Dunbar said. “This is our first film and rarely does your first film make it to a film festival - let alone win an award.” John Avarese and Matthew Datcher won Best Sound, Feature or Featurette for the movie “Greencastle” at the independent film festival held Jan. 12 to 15. Datcher is from Waynesboro, Pa., Dunbar said.

While I am certainly not the most well-read individual, I do read a fair amount of periodicals. A while back, I read an op/ed piece from the San Francisco Chronicle where the author suggested, “Bring on the $6 gallon of gas, it would revolutionize America. It would make us all better humans. But could you handle it?” While I find most of his logic nonexistent, he does make one very good point, which is that Americans have an overwhelming feeling of entitlement. Average Americans believe they are entitled to whatever they want, and it should be cheap.

I’ve been working with California avocados lately and wanted to create something simple yet delicious. I came up with this easy to make appetizer or entree by blending a traditional quesadilla and avocado to come up with the “ques-ado.”   This is a very basic grilled recipe to accentuate the three main ingredients: turkey, avocado and cheese. The secret is to use ripe avocado but not too ripe and a flavorful smoked cheddar. You don’t want the avocado to mushy but semi-firm so it can be sliced and layered into the tortilla.
