With about 25 years of experience working the polls in Washington County elections, Emily Knode is used to surprises, both in the voting process and her personal life. As the primary election polls opened Tuesday at 7 a.m. at Clear Spring High School, Knode was contending with the effects of an overnight snowstorm as well as one malfunctioning voting machine. "The custodians have kept the parking lot very clean," Knode said. And as for the voting machine, a traveling technician showed up quickly and fixed that problem.

Five, four, three, two, one -- and the next wave of presidential primary polls close. It is 9 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 5. Numbers for East Coast states trickle in and CNN's pie charts change with every new report. Only 1 percent, 10 percent, 20 percent of polling locations have reported in and yet winners are being projected. Across the bottom of the screen, the news crawl repeats the number of delegates needed for the Democrats and Republicans to win the nomination. The news anchors are saying that Super Tuesday may not provide a clear winner, that the campaign may extend to the party conventions in August.

CHAMBERSBURG, PA. ? The last time a mayor cast a tie-breaking vote was likely more than eight years ago when Robert Morris was in office, but newly sworn-in Mayor Peter Lagiovane got to do the honors within minutes of taking his oath. Lagiovane was the deciding vote after the council deadlocked on electing its president. Council President William McLaughlin had the support of council members Robert Wareham, Glenn Manns, Elaine Swartz and Janet Lukic, while Sharon Bigler, Mary Beth Shank, Heath Talhelm and Tom Newcomer backed Allen Coffman.

CHAMBERSBURG, PA. - A crowd gathered at Fort Chambers Park on Saturday for the dedication ceremony of "The Homecoming," a statue honoring the founders of Chambersburg. Members of the memorial statue committee, the Chambersburg Borough Council, and a descendent of the founder of Chambersburg, unveiled the statue, which depicts "The Homecoming" of 1781, when Chambersburg founder Benjamin Chambers welcomed home his son, James, a colonel, and his grandson, Benjamin, from their service in the Revolutionary War. "This statue is an important and everlasting reminder of the sacrifices, which led to the founding of Chambersburg," Chambersburg Mayor Samuel Worley said.

CHARLES TOWN, W.Va. - The cast and director for "A Thirties Affair" at the seventh annual New Voice Play Festival playfully disagreed about whether the play is a comedy, a dramedy or is more like a sitcom, but what isn't disputed is its first-place finish at the festival. "It is short, to the point and very well-written, very cute," director Alan Hupke said. In "A Thirties Affair," a busybody tries to set up her friend with her husband's friend, much to everyone else's chagrin.

CHARLES TOWN, W.Va. - Directing the musical revue "Personals" was supposed to be easy, Director David Porterfield said. The production only calls for six actors, and its creators Marta Kauffman and David Crane - the same writing team behind the '90s sitcom "Friends" - gave it a straightforward story line: Following lonely singles searching for The One in newspaper personals during the '80s. But the show's opener tonight at the Old Opera House is the culmination of two months crammed with work.

For several actors cast in Washington County Playhouse's upcoming run of "Footloose," there's more to the production than nailing the lines and choreography. Take Sarah Schofield, for example. "I play the town bad girl," said Sarah, 17, of Hagerstown, a self-described "prim-and-proper, all-American girl. " "It's difficult to get as angry as (Ariel) does," she said. "Kelly (the producer) always tells me to think about talking back to my mom. That seems to work. " "Footloose" debuts Friday and will run weekends through May 26 at the Hagerstown troupe's downtown theater.
