As members of the Boonsboro High School Indoor Guard spin their flags at practice and in competition, they can be proud to say that they made the flags themselves. After the fall marching band season drew to a close on Nov. 13, the 23 members of the BHS marching color guard had nothing to do for two months until the end of the semester. While marching band members began to rehearse concert music, color guard members began a study hall. This year, Sally Poole, an instructional assistant at the school, was in charge of their study hall.

BOONSBORO - The next time the Boonsboro High School color guard marches onto the field, spectators might want to pay close attention to the flags being carried by the squad members. Faced with the prospect of buying 27 new outdoor flags - at an estimated cost of $165 each - a number of parents and other volunteers pitched in to sew flags over the summer. The effort of the volunteers brought the cost of the flags down to $3 to $5 a flag. Each flag - composed of a silky lining material and lam - took about four or five hours to complete.

Stimson said Veterans Day also is a chance for veterans to express how much they appreciate the support of their fellow Americans.

Thanks for remembering ‘forgotten’ veterans To the editor: Our most sincere appreciation for Dan Dearth’s article about three of our guys and for highlighting the “Forgotten War” in Sunday’s paper. The sacrifices of veterans should not be forgotten, and those of us who are Korean War veterans are particularly sensitive to being overlooked by history. This was one of the primary reasons we formed Antietam Chapter 312 nearly five years ago. In the last few weeks, we have been able to showcase ourselves in various ways.

Holidays are like rules and records. They all seem to be made to be broken. We give them literal and figurative definitions and then choose the one that benefits our situation the most. Holiday, by literal definition, is a day when work is suspended to commemorate an event. Holiday, by figurative definition, is when work is suspended for an extra day off that gives us time to do the things we tend to ignore. Figuratively, that’s why Christmas and Easter have changed over time.

Sponsored by the Keystone Chapter of ABATE (Alliance of Bikers Aimed Toward Education), the ride ended in the midst of a severe thunderstorm. Motorcyclists huddled under pavilions and awnings at the American Legion grounds in St. Thomas, but their spirits didn't seem to be dampened. Chambersburg, Pa., resident Buck Hessler said the conversations and laughter were his favorite aspects of the event.
