marlob@herald-mail.com When Kenneth George Plank was just a boy, his mother sat him down at the piano and told him he was to play for one hour each day. There was no debate, he was just to do it. "She just put the music in front of me and, after awhile, I learned to read music," Plank said. From that modest beginning, Plank grew musically and, in 1954, he began playing the organ for church services at Salem Reformed Church in Cearfoss. This year, he is beginning his 51st year playing that same organ in the same sanctuary.

The director and coordinator of activities within the tent that houses the Ag Ventures and Birthing Center, Herbst said the expo is a great place for children to learn about agriculture and the food they eat. "Food doesn't start in the grocery store. It starts with cows, pigs and chickens," said Herbst, of Williamsport.

laurae@herald-mail.com Charles and Alliene Downs' bucolic farmland north of Clear Spring has been in her family since 1858 and a contract approved Wednesday will insure that it is permanently protected from development. The couple has agreed to sell the development rights to 129 acres of their land north of Clear Spring, which is farmed by a tenant crop farmer. "I feel that somebody has to make a stand and go against all this random development," Charles Downs said. Downs owns one of five Washington County farms accepted Wednesday into the state's Agricultural Land Preservation program.
