By DARYLENE FORD | January 9, 2006
Life moves fast New Year has emerged! Wow, what a great year, so far! I have to wonder, if anyone still remembers the Christmas spirit ... life moves on so fast!

I have learned through my job at Jet Transit that 15-minute increments are very valuable; especially when there is a price on them. This year, I have set my goals on 15 minute intervals and I have been astonished at how much more I can accomplish.

daniels@herald-mail.com BOONSBORO - Red and white lights penetrated the night sky Friday night outside Shafer Park in Boonsboro, drawing the attention of residents gathered in, and shivering against, the cold. For a while, the lights did not come any closer, hovering at the intersection of Potomac Street and Park Road. Then, someone called out that the lights were moving closer, the crowd turned to look again and, in fact, the lights were moving closer. Someone else heard the faint sound of a marching band and called out. Others focused their attention on the lights, and as the Boonsboro Volunteer Fire Co. firetruck approached, the sounds of the Rohrersville Band playing behind the truck grew louder.

The temperature during the event was 28 degrees, but frequent wind gusts made it feel like 16 degrees with the wind chill factored in, according to the National Weather Service.
