WAYNESBORO, Pa. - Faced with several problems at Pine Hill Regional Recreation Area, the Washington Township Supervisors are considering installing an entrance gate to close off access between dusk and dawn. The supervisors recently received a note from a police officer who said he has had trouble getting people to leave the park at dusk. The municipal police go the facility to close the gate every evening. Early estimates are that the new system, with two 12-foot wooden arms, would cost about $8,000.

HANCOCK - At Hancock's yearly Barge Bash, defeat really might evoke a sinking feeling. As in you and your barge sinking into the C&O Canal. Competitors hope to stay afloat in this year's Barge Bash - an event in which the aim is to tow a vessel, the "barge," about 1,000 feet down the canal using your body, a bike or an animal. There are several categories of competition, such as the Fastest Barge and the People's Choice Award. Winners from each category receive a barge-shaped trophy carved from wood.
