Cumberland Valley stuffs Waynesboro By DAN SPEARS / Staff Writer WAYNESBORO, Pa. - Fourth-and-8 on the Cumberland Valley 27, and Waynesboro quarterback Ben Leonard dropped back.

On the very next drive, the Eagles faced third-and-13 at their own 34, and came up with a 60-yard slant play that turned into a touchdown. It typified how the perennial powerhouse pulled away from the upstart Indians, 52-8, Friday night at Indian Stadium.

CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - With a 13-point lead midway through the third quarter and momentum on their side, the No. 5 Chambersburg boys looked like they would cruise to another lopsided victory against Cumberland Valley. Then the Eagles took flight. Cumberland Valley (6-8, 3-7) outscored the Trojans 37-21 in the final 12 minutes, capitalizing off missed Trojans opportunities to earn the stunning upset and hand Chambersburg (7-7, 5-5) its third loss in a row. "The common denominator in our past three games has been our inability to defend in the fourth quarter," said Chambersburg coach Shawn Shreffler.

The red Dodge Dart is still in Roy Steele's acrylic painting, but the spectators - in the painting and at the art exhibit - know it's got some speed because of the pillows of white smoke coming out of the muscle car's exhaust pipe as it races down a dragway strip. Steele, 51, of Hagerstown, said he named the large canvas work “The Sleeper” because the Dodge's speed is a surprise. For the painting, Steele picked up the Washington County Arts Council's award Sunday at the Washington County Museum of Fine Arts in Hagerstown's City Park.

The Cumberland Valley Animal Shelter's fashion show held Sunday afternoon featured models not yet booked for Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York City. The models were each known by one name - not unlike Tyra, Gisele and Heidi. However, Panda, Tia and Leda strutted down the runway and licked the people in the front row. The model dogs donned scarves and outfits to join the human models displaying fashions available in the shelter's thrift shop. “We have a lot of nice stuff here, and it's a way for our volunteers to show it off,” Jennifer Vanderau said, adding that many of the clothes are familiar brands with tags still attached.

It might not be clear whether the economy is improving, but what is clear to Norine T. Dagliano is that many workers and unemployed people suddenly seem hopeful. “Since the beginning of this year,” said professional Hagerstown job resumé writer Dagliano, “I have just seen a tremendous increase in business, of employed people and unemployed people who are feeling enough hope in the economy now, they're ready to pursue other opportunities.” There has been a surge this year in the number of temporary and temporary-to-permanent jobs that area companies are offering, a jobs specialist said, referring to jobs that last only a few weeks and those that offer a few weeks' employment with the potential of becoming more permanent.

Seven-year-old Madison Hartman inched forward on the piano bench to reach the keys so she could play “Mulberry Bush” at Saturday's Performathon to benefit the Cumberland Valley School of Music. After giving a flawless performance, the young musician from Shippensburg, Pa., dashed off the stage at Wilson College's Thomson Alumnae Chapel while the crowd still was giving her a rousing round of applause. Playing in front of an audience wasn't a bit nerve-wracking for Madison. “I wasn't scared at all. I'm happy,” Madison said after her performance.
