WAYNESBORO, PA. A fire Tuesday morning that destroyed a downtown warehouse is believed to have started in a 1999 Ford Econoline van. The van was parked in the center of the west side of the warehouse near Nu-Way Cleaners on Mulberry Avenue. The blaze spread east through the 50-foot-by-80-foot structure, Waynesboro Volunteer Fire Department officials said. "We were able to contain the fire inside the building," Fire Marshal Jerry Hartman said. Infrared sensors on a burglar alarm were triggered - likely by the flames - and Waynesboro police found all the windows and doors secure upon arrival.

By ROSEMARY SADEZ FRIEDMANN Scripps Howard News Service Carpet stains are really bad. If you could get rid of them you'd be glad.

To the editor: It was April 1, 2004. Mrs. Taylor was halfway through her third-period freshman English class at Boonsboro High School when a student from her first period dropped by. His news was surprising. Apparently, he had just come from the nurse's office, where the school nurse was treating a student with a suspicious rash on his forearms, seemingly an allergic reaction to something he had touched recently. What was the culprit? Apparently, it was Mrs. Taylor's decrepit green carpet - a fabric of questionable origin that had been duct-taped to her floor for as long as anyone could remember.

The walls are a cheerful light green. At eye level for a small child is a section, bordered by blue molding, with the words “believe,” “dream,” “smile,” “wish” and “imagine.” In a corner of the room is a carpet segment with a big, soft pillow on which to lean. It’s a good place to sit and read or peruse the books in the bookcase that helps create the space. “It’s beautiful. It’s heavenly,” Loretta Wright, director of Memorial Recreation Center, said Sunday at an open house for the renovated library room in the center on West North Avenue in Hagerstown.
