"Diary of a Wimpy Kid" is about a kid that has a diary but told his mom specify not to get the one that said DIARY on it. It's my favorite book because there are so many funny things in it.

HEDGESVILLE, W.Va. - It's taken 14 years, lots of phone calls and trips up and down the Tri-State area including to Cumberland, Md., and Moorefield, W.Va., but then again Confederate Brig. Gen. John D. Imboden didn't make it easy for Steve French. Imboden didn't leave a diary or write many letters about the month leading up to and following the Battle of Gettysburg in July 1863 - at least none French could find. Instead French tracked down the diary of Imboden's brother, Frank; diaries of Imboden's soldiers; letters from one of Imboden's regiment commanders; and magazine articles Imboden wrote after the war. Having lived his 55 years in Hedgesville, Civil War buff French wanted to write about the war near the West Virginia town.

Behind the scenes, the "author" chuckled as more than 100 people shared clues at a murder-mystery dinner hosted by the Waynesboro Historical Society.

Oh, and there was another lesson: "With barbecue you never know how it's going to turn out," he said. Here's how the weekend went. Friday - 5 p.m. Forrester owns Mason-Dixon BBQ Services, a new barbecue-dedicated store in an old, brick school building a couple miles east of Greencastle, Pa., on Buchanan Trail.
