 It's summertime and that means indulging in the fried, yummy goodness of carnival food. From the traditional candy apples and funnel cakes to the more unusual chocolate-covered frozen bananas, local food lovers can enjoy some guilty indulgences. Larry Moats of Fayetteville, Pa., teased that he went into training for the Waynesboro Fire Department's annual Carnival at the Quincy Ox Roast Grounds last week. Moats ate only half a ham-and-cheese sandwich before going to the fair, so he could save plenty of room for a big splurge at the carnival.

By ANNE CHOVEY - Special to The Herald-Mail Nick's sits in the bend of the road on Pennsylvania Avenue near Hagerstown Regional Airport, north of Hagerstown. It is a modest-looking building with ample parking around it. Inside, the décor is tastefully upscale. The restaurant is divided into a number of rooms: two fairly large dining rooms, a greenhouse area, a bar and numerous smaller private dining areas. My dining companion, Pap Ricka, and I were greeted immediately upon entering and given our choice of seating.
