WAYNESBORO, Pa. - In a hot kitchen Thursday, George Tsoukatos and his family partook in a decades-long tradition complete with secret ingredients. It started with a copper kettle and ended with dozens of candy canes cooling on a table. "He'll probably keep us here most of the morning making them," said Zo Tsoukatos, the namesake of Zo's Chocolates at 34 E. Main St. She estimated that hundreds of candy canes would be made from the sticky process. "There has got to be an easier way, but we haven't figured it out," she said.

waynesboro@herald-mail.com MERCERSBURG, Pa. - Jill Sipes, a single mother of three diagnosed with terminal cancer, left Wednesday for treatments in a clinic in Mexico after more than $20,000 in donations came in this week, her mother, Lois Lynch, said Thursday. Sipes, of Mercersburg, has been trying to raise the money for the experimental treatments since doctors in Baltimore told her her condition was hopeless after three months of chemotherapy failed to reduce the tumors that have spread through her upper body.

SMITHSBURG - How cold was it outside Sunday night? It was so cold in Smithsburg that there wasn't going to be any standing around at the town Christmas tree. In the town's first tree-lighting ceremony, town officials lighted a blue spruce in Veterans Park along Water Street at about 6:10 p.m. Then everyone headed down to the Smithsburg Volunteer Fire Co. for the rest of the celebration. Mayor Mildred "Mickey" Myers said the decision was made to move the celebration to the fire department because of the frigid temperatures.

shappell@herald-mail.com WILLIAMSPORT - Byron Memorial Park was lit up, as the saying goes, like a Christmas tree Sunday evening. And the only thing harder to count than the bustling people taking in all the decorations was the number of bulbs used on more than 50 designs spread throughout the park. Though Williamsport officials canceled the holiday parade Sunday evening because of icy conditions on sidewalks throughout the town, the annual tree- and ornament-lighting tradition was as festive as ever.

Peanut brittle loathers might be peanut brittle lovers without knowing it. "You ever eat a candy-coated nut? With a buttery, hard-candy coating on the outside and a crunchy nut on the inside?" asked Will Pananes, owner of Olympia Candy Kitchen in Chambersburg, Pa., and Hagerstown. "They're taking the same idea of peanut brittle and applying it to individual nuts. " Peanut brittle's fan base has dwindled, thanks to today's easy-on-the-tooth confections. But according to local candy makers, peanut brittle hasn't completely fallen off the radar.

HAGERSTOWN -- Hagerstown must be one of the few towns with a floating Christmas tree, Mayor Robert E. Bruchey II and local personality Lou Scally said Friday night during the annual City Park Lighting. The city's tree floated atop a platform anchored in the middle of the large lake in City Park. Holiday and winter-themed decorations lining the lake in City Park were also aglow Friday, including the latest addition: a train and coal car. Once again, a lighted Santa fishes on the lake near the floating Christmas tree.

"I was just driving through Hagerstown, and it's no wonder we have the traffic tie-ups that we have. People have no idea how to follow directions. I see numerous people make left-hand and right-hand turns on the side streets from the middle lane, instead of getting in the right- and left-hand turn lanes. They're driving in areas that are marked as not supposed to drive in.
