MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - Members of Martinsburg High School's Good Times Show Choir gathered in the school's cafeteria Monday for a baking tradition so popular, the group has received an order all the way from Texas. Each fall, the group makes about 8,000 apple dumplings to sell at the Apple Harvest Festival, said Edward Wilson, who heads the festival's board of directors. All weekend, the cafeteria was a scene of "controlled chaos" as students, parents and staff peeled, filled, baked and packaged thousands of dumplings in preparation for the festival, which runs Thursday through Sunday.

CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. -- "If it ain't broke, don't fix it. " A simple recipe, but according to organizers of Chambersburg's 27th annual Apple Fest on Saturday, it has been the key to success. Tina Flohr, coordinator of the Downtown Business Council, said the 10,000 people who come every year to enjoy the apples, food and fun have come to expect many of the same things. "People like finding their favorite vendor in the same spot every year," she said. For the last few years, Flohr said the council has sold every last space, and while she could sell more, she said she is out of space.

julieg@herald-mail.com It rained on Hancock's parade Saturday, toward the end. And it rained on the town's 27th Canal Apple Days festival afterward. But, the rain didn't dampen the spirits of the organizers or the many people who surprised event chairman Fran Shives by showing up and sticking around despite the drizzly day. Of the 85 registered vendors, only four didn't show up. "That's not bad. In my opinion, that's darn good," said Shives, president of the sponsoring Hancock Lions Club.

BOONSBORO - Such sights as sunbathers and ball games on battlefields made Tim Johnson see ghosts. The Falling Waters, W.Va., photographer uses double exposure to create "ghostly images" on real pictures of Civil War battle sites to "make people think about what happened," he said. Johnson's photograph of two Union and Confederate soldiers' ghosts shaking hands over their fallen bodies at the stone wall where Pickett's Charge ended at the Battle of Gettysburg made Ted Fischer stop in his tracks.
