by CANDICE BOSELY | September 28, 2003 Steam engine whistles echoed through the streets of Smithsburg on Saturday evening as half a dozen engines chugged slowly through town during the Smithsburg Steam Engine and Craft Show parade. Those riding in the parade frequently threw candy to children and adults standing on sidewalks, yards and on corners. Most children seemed to be experts in parades, since nearly every one had a grocery bag to use to collect candy. By the end some had enough loot to rival that of a successful Halloween trip.
July 21, 2002 There were mules pulling a wagon, two Texas Longhorn cattle, baton-twirling girls and Ali Ghan members riding miniature motorized cars. But it was the candy that captured the attention of 21/2-year-old Rachael Cochran of Smithsburg. Parade members tossing candy to spectators is a tradition of the Smithsburg Pride Days Parade, Pride Days co-founder Charlie Slick said. Rachael had a bag for candy last year too, "but she really didn't know what she was doing with it," said her mother, Claire Cochran.

SHARPSBURG -- There was scarcely a single patch of shade along Sharpsburg's Main Street Saturday afternoon that wasn't covered in lawn chairs, strollers or blankets as hundreds of people from throughout the Tri-State area braved the heat to witness one of the oldest Memorial Day parades in the United States. In its 142nd year, the Sharpsburg Memorial Day parade lasted about an hour and a half and featured school and community bands, fire and rescue vehicles, military units, Civil War re-enactors, dancers, majorettes, Scout groups, youth sports teams, pageant winners and more.

For those watching the scale, Halloween can be the beginning of a downward spiral if you aren't careful. A house full of candy, too many costume parties and beginning to slack in your training can lead to the beginning of the end of your chances of finishing 2012 in your best shape. Here a three tips to make sure you avoid that often slippery slope. 1. Use total body workouts: Total body training saves time and burns more calories than traditional "body part" training. Three total body workouts per week builds a strong metabolism, and allows more variation in the workout that alleviates boredom.
by DAVE McMILLION | December 6, 2004 INWOOD, W.VA. - You have to give participants in Sunday's Inwood Christmas Parade credit for imagination. Among the 165 units streaming down U.S. 11 was the C&S Express. Positioned on top of the float was a giant red apple that shot candy into the air through its stem. A man rotated the apple as he picked out a spot in the crowd at which to shoot the candy. The contraption hissed, then shot the candy into the air. The man then stepped up along the side of the apple and poured another cupful of candy down the stem.

Editor's note: This is the fifth in a monthly series about neighborhood grocery stores. One of the biggest perks of owning a corner store, Clarence Rudisill said, is the grandkids. "What kid doesn't want to come into Grandma's candy store?" Rudisill asked from behind the candy-filled counter near the register. Rudisill and his wife, Joyce, have run J & C Deli and Market in Hagerstown's West End since 1997. The neighborhood shop has earned the reputation as the place where neighborhood kids get candy and subs.

HAGERSTOWN - "Who is Jesus?" The pigtailed 12-year-old in purple pajama pants and a bib hesitates, then removes the pacifier from her mouth. "God's son," she says, and Kaleb Jewell, 16, hands her a token to drop into a board with pegs to determine how much candy she gets. This is trick-or-treat with a twist, a la The Salvation Army's Hallelujah Carnival, a Halloween alternative where costumed children play ring-toss and tip-a-jug for candy prizes while a Christian rock band plays in the background.

It was a tragic Easter. My in-laws had gathered at our house. My brother-in-law, Justin, brought along his dog, Pearl. A city-dweller who typically spends most of her time indoors, Pearl loves to roam free in our sizeable, fenced-in back yard. Sometime during the course of our hearty holiday dinner, we heard the dog snarling out on the lawn. One of my older children, who was closest to the doorway of our crowded dining room, bolted out to see what was going on. He came running back in with news none too pleasing to my toddler and preschool-aged children.

Everybody loves a parade - or so the saying goes - and that was no more apparent than at Thursday's Old Home Week Parade in Greencastle. The only traffic that moved in downtown Greencastle on Thursday from 6:30 to 8 p.m. was the home-spun parade that entertained onlookers. Sierra Wagaman, 17, of Marion, Pa., was one of thousands who watched the 95-unit parade snake its way through town. “It gets better every Old Home Week,” she said. For the soon-to-be Greencastle-Antrim High School senior, it was hard to divert her eyes from the parade route to ask her questions.
