Three naturally raised hens will lay about a dozen eggs or more a week — more in summer, less in winter. For many people, three hens in the backyard would fully supplant their need to buy factory-raised eggs from the supermarket. A hen will squawk when she's getting ready to lay, and chatter proudly after she has produced. Other than that, they're mostly quiet, unless alarmed. A hen will make far less noise than your average car-driving, lawn-mowing, music-playing, leaf-blowing, TV-blasting human.

Every Labor Day for the last 35 years, Harold Catrow has arrived at War Memorial Park at 6 a.m. and hauled in the big gas grills to fire up the park's big annual fundraiser. Catrow, 74, a retired Martinsburg firefighter, recruits the 40 to 50 volunteers who work the annual steak-and-egg breakfast. The Monday event brings in $7,000 to $8,000 to the park's coffers, said Steve Catlett, executive director of the Berkeley County Parks and Recreation Board, which runs the park. "This is the park's biggest one-day fundraiser," he said.

MARTINSBURG, W.Va. -- Close to 500 people gathered for a longstanding Labor Day community breakfast to benefit War Memorial Park in Martinsburg early Monday. "It's kind of the unofficial end-of-summer event," Parks and Recreation Director Steve Catlett said. "You get a good meal, but you are contributing back to the improvement of the park. " The Martinsburg-Berkeley County Parks and Recreation Association hoped to raise about $10,000 from the traditional breakfast of grilled steak, country ham, scrambled eggs, toast, juice and coffee.

Last year's drought certainly had a impact on the number of grubs that were able to survive because of our dry turf. This year it looked like it could be the same, but last week's rains will certainly help the eggs that have been laid as well as eggs that will be laid in the next few weeks. That's if they should find enough moisture to survive. This means we will likely see more Japanese Beetles next year as the population builds. When the Japanese beetle lays her eggs she looks for areas that have moisture.

Week of Aug. 21, 1955 While at the Municipal Pool just a week ago, Mrs. Marie Fridinger left two one-dozen cartons of eggs on the rear shelf of her car. Upon returning to the car after several hours of enjoying the swimming, she noticed that the sun was bearing down through the rear window onto the eggs. When she arrived home, she tested for possible damage and found that she had two dozen three-minute, soft-boiled eggs. Hotel Dagmar personnel are emphatic in their denial that two TV personalities spent last Saturday night at the hotel, but the room clerk and at least one of the maids are puzzled over the behavior of the couple posing as Lucille Ball and her husband, Desi Arnaz.

By DAN KULIN / Staff Writer photo: RICHARD T. MEAGHER / staff photographer Three weeks after losing his job at a downtown Hagerstown diner, Ernie Eichelberger opened his own diner-style restaurant. That was 50 years ago and he's been cooking ever since. Ernie & Kitty's Restaurant opened on the corner of Potomac and Baltimore streets on Feb. 17, 1949. Since then, people have sipped coffee at the counter or traded jokes and the news of the day from the white and chrome tables.

CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - Are you smarter than a fourth-grader? Taylor Kump, 10, talks easily about viscosity, which is apparently the property of a fluid that can resist force and make it slimy. For her Franklin Science and Technology Fair entry, Taylor, a student in Lori McNew's Lurgan Elementary School class, noted how viscosity changed in homemade slime when laundry booster was added. "The laundry booster didn't have any effect on the viscosity," said Taylor, who saw the experiment detailed in a book and thought it looked fun. A handy book to have at the 24th annual fair might have been a dictionary, with projects like "The Fibonacci Sequence in Nature" and "Hydroponics.

o If you like reading Tim Rowland, you'll love watching him. See what else Tim has to say I have a rooster for sale. The asking price is $1,000, firm. All right, so as roosters go he isn't much to look at. No proud, imperial, feathered headdress of a rooster, he. He's small, with bandy legs and no comb to speak of. An Araucana (were he a hen, he'd be the type that lays blue eggs), he's all white with no tail and his attempts at crowing sound like a tractor-trailer with malfunctioning air brakes.
