tiffanya@herald-mail.com BOONSBORO - Amid the noisemakers, tiaras and streamers, Karen Gish, the dietitian at Fahrney-Keedy Memorial Home, jumped each time a number was chanted as the "noon" year countdown drew to a close. "Five, four, three, two, one ... happy noon year!" Gish proclaimed, along with the others in the memorial home's dining room on Friday at noon. Yes, that's Happy "Noon" Year - not Happy New Year, said Michelle Morris, Fahrney-Keedy's activities director.

The City of Hagerstown is considering whether to purchase two homes to fix up and resell for a profit. On Tuesday, the Hagerstown City Council voted to introduce an ordinance that would give city officials permission to purchase properties at 25 E. Lee St. and 415 Clarendon Ave. for $1 each. Both homes are two-story duplexes. If the council approves the ordinance next Tuesday, it would take effect May 22. Hagerstown Community Development Manager Larry Bayer said the houses are foreclosures that haven't been resold for more than six months.

A plan by the Franklin County Area Development Authority to buy and convert the former Grove Worldwide Training Center into a conference center has hit a snag, an Authority member said Friday. Carol Henicle, executive director of the Greater Waynesboro Chamber of Commerce, said the cost of the $14 million project increased to $15 million because of federal regulations governing wages for workers building the project. The Authority is a government agency. The contractor has to pay workers at the prevailing wages set by the federal government, which are significantly higher than those paid by private contractors, Henicle said.

HAGERSTOWN -- The Hagerstown architect who designed the "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" house being built this week said he considered the Quincy Township, Pa., family's needs and surrounding community when planning for the two-story home. Frank J. Lolli Jr. described the final product as a "modern, but rustic" house, with exposed beams and a rock wall inside to match the exterior. The ABC show gave Lolli less than three weeks to design the house and Dan Ryan Builders just 106 hours to build it for the Drumm family.

This is the 193rd in a series of articles about the historical and architectural treasures of Washington County. Crickhollow Farm is part of the Beaver Creek community that built up around an early mill in the 18th century. This farm faces both the creek and Cool Hollow Road at the northeast corner of its intersection with Beaver Creek Road. Cool Hollow Road stops at this intersection, becoming the farm's driveway on the north as it continues, a single lane track winding up the hill to yet another small stone house.

Bells clang. Lights flash. Buzzers blare. Children scream. Bug-eyed creatures turn repetitive 45-degree angles, and machines spit paper tickets like some kind of mechanical vomit. Sometimes, by the time I leave commercial play places, I feel bug-eyed and ready to vomit, too. Many parents exclaim the virtues of these popular children's entertainment venues. They say such places are secure. Kids can run free and have a good time while parents chat over coffee - or in some cases, beer - and then drive home fuss-free.

This is the 191st in a series of articles about the historical and architectural treasures of Washington County. An allee of ancient maples marks the long lane leading north off the National Pike, west of Hagerstown. Set well back among pastures, Rocky Spring farmstead stands on a slight rise, with wetlands to the west and lawns around the structures. Rock outcrops abound across the landscape. A tenant house on the west nestles into the earth, standing on early stone foundations above a spring.

Q: What should we do with the slanted wall at the end of our dining room? It has a big picture window on the bottom and a half-round window at the point where the ceiling angles meet. Can I treat them separately? Or do I even have to dress that upper window? A: The answers are yes and no. Yes, you can treat dissimilar windows differently in the same room, provided they are as dramatically unalike as yours. And no, you really don't have to dress that little decorative window at all - as long as you aren't bothered by glare, fading and invasions of your privacy.

Scattered developments lie among fields along Greencastle Pike north of Cearfoss Circle. A single lane tees into the pike on the left. It leads past a couple of old greenhouses and presses a half-mile west, beyond several businesses, a herd of longhorn cattle and a flock of hair sheep. There, on a 55-acre parcel, stands a comfortable clapboard house on a knoll above a pond, silent, solitary and serene. In 1979, Lewis Horst and his wife Frances purchased this property, with its half-mile-long, 15-foot-wide panhandle lane, from Bob Daley.

The twisting, winding, up-and-down road opened at the summit upon a stunning view of the Potomac River, farmland, mountains, the town of Little Cacapon, the Eastern Continental Divide and, there in the distance, Pennsylvania. There we found the stone building of Panorama at the Peak, the restaurant which welcomes those who venture into these hills. Our reservation was for 4 p.m, the earliest possible.

HAGERSTOWN -- Hartle's -- Hagerstown's longtime sub shop -- is back in its original location and selling subs it says are made from the original recipe, though the owners aren't Hartles. But that doesn't seem to matter to the people who have flocked to Hartle's since it reopened last fall in the shop's original 635 S. Potomac St. location, owner Paula Robertson said. "They don't care that we're not in the family," she said. "I think it's the nostalgia of walking back into the building because so many people tell stories of when they went to South High and she (founder Margaret Hartle)

Q: We bought a house with an enormous dining room, 25 feet by 15 feet. The dining set from our old house looks lost in there, so we found a great table and 12 chairs at an auction. They are in proportion to the space, but what do we do for a light over the table? A: Don't stop at one light. Two - or even three, if your table is really long - should fill the space proportionally, as long as the lights are spread widely enough to shed enough illumination on the table below. Hang them toward the middle of the table, low enough to see what you're eating.

Q: My wife wants to paint our dining room red. She says red is good for the appetite. But what about our traditional furniture? A: What about it? Red dining rooms are totally traditional, as a visit to almost any l8th-century English manor house would confirm. And, as color experts would confirm, red is indeed believed to stimulate the appetite. Put the two together, and you have a warm convivial backdrop for dining, discussing and delighting in the company of family and friends.
