Editor's note: Each Sunday, The Herald-Mail publishes "A Life Remembered. " This continuing series takes a look back -- through the eyes of family, friends, co-workers and others -- at a member of the community who died recently. Today's "A Life Remembered" is about Gloria Schlee Truax, who died Dec. 15 at the age of 60. Her obituary was published in the Dec. 17 edition of The Herald-Mail. There were no fireworks when Gloria Reed first met Ernie Truax in the mid 1960s -- it was more like a warm glow that grew into a love that lasted more than 38 years.

PREP BASEBALL WARFORDSBURG, Pa. - Clear Spring coach Jim Hutson could only chuckle. For Southern Fulton, though, there was no laughing matter involved on Monday afternoon. The No. 7 Blazers turned a seemingly harmless two-out, none-on situation in the second inning into a full-blown disaster for the Indians, scoring 14 runs on the way to a 14-2 victory. "It's unbelievable isn't it," Hutson said. "When the dust cleared, it was pretty much a done deal. " Clear Spring (13-3)

Jamison knew his approach would have to change for his senior year. "After last year, I knew I wouldn't see a lot of great pitches, I'd see a lot of off-speed," Jamison said. "I knew to let the game come to me and be patient. I really worked on having more of an eye at the plate, seeing a lot more pitches and getting into a lot more hitter's counts.

HARRISBURG, PA. - Valerie Hubbard was half asleep in her 11-year-old son's bedroom just before midnight - they had been watching "Ratatouille" on DVD - when three constables crashed through the locked first-floor door of her apartment house. She did not know they were there to arrest her for unpaid parking tickets. "I was scared to death," she said. "They made me feel like I was a real criminal, like I had done this terrible thing. " In 1998, state prosecutors asked the Pennsylvania Legislature to regulate and rein in constables, citing complaints around the state of constables being too heavy-handed or in many cases acting criminally.
