ryant@herald-mail.com Lois South woke up Thursday morning thinking it would be an average day, but what she saw from her Garlinger Avenue window was anything but ordinary. "I looked out and saw that big butt standing there," she said. "I said, 'Well, I know I'm not dreaming,' but who would have ever thought they'd see something like that?" She was looking at the backside of an 1,800-pound bull that had escaped the day before while being unloaded at Four States' Livestock Sales, Four States' co-owner Jim Starliper said.

gregs@herald-mail.com Like she does each night, Faye Rodgers picked up the photograph of her brother and placed it gently against her right cheek. Talking to the photo, she told her brother she loves him and hopes he's all right. "I guess whatever makes you feel better," Rodgers said. Rodgers, 59, said that is one of the few things she can do to ease the pain caused by her brother's slaying in November 2002. Jeffrey Rowland's body was found by a jogger on the C&O Canal towpath near Sandy Hook in southern Washington County in the early hours of Nov. 15. Since then, detectives from Maryland and West Virginia have turned up some clues.

waynesboro@herald-mail.com WAYNESBORO, Pa. - Plans to build a nearly one-mile walkway connecting the Borough of Waynesboro to Washington Township along East Main Street ended this week when an angry State Sen. Terry Punt said he would pull the funding. Punt had secured $265,000 of the estimated $325,000 cost of the walkway. He criticized Waynesboro officials for dragging their feet on the project and for Renfrew Museum and Park officials for opposing it because of insurance liability and aesthetic concerns.
