katec@herald-mail.com MERCERSBURG, Pa. - If you happen to be in the beautiful countryside surrounding the village of Mercersburg, Pa., on most Sunday afternoons while the Mercersburg Academy is in session, you may hear the sound of the bells. The bells are not chiming out a simple ding and a dong. The bells - 49 of them - are making music, their tones lingering. The music is coming from the carillon in the academy chapel's Barker Tower. The 150-foot tower is a replica of the spire of St. Mary the Virgin at Oxford, England.

A great weekend What a glorious weekend! The sunshine and warmer temperatures came right in on cue and made for a fabulous long weekend off from school and work for us all to enjoy some much-needed time out of doors. This weekend should have also given you cause to pause and think of the reason for the extra day off ... Memorial Day. A day to remember the sacrifices given by our service men and women to ensure that we enjoy the freedoms and democracy so coveted and sometimes so taken for granted.

waynesboro@herald-mail.com MERCERSBURG, Pa. - On a clear day, especially when it's cold, anyone standing within three miles of Mercersburg Academy can hear the carillon sounding from the tower that looms above the school's chapel. "There's more resonance when the ground is frozen," said James W. Smith, the academy's resident carillonneur since 1984. "There's less when the ground is soft and leaves are in the trees. " Smith, 65, retired from the academy's music department in 2001, ending a 40-year teaching career, but he's never left his beloved carillon.
