koelble@herald-mail.com CLEAR SPRING - Heading into Friday's game against Clear Spring, Smithsburg coach Eric Gerber was worried about his team and how much energy would be in its tank after a tough loss to Walkersville on Thursday. After the contest was over, Gerber was a pleased coach as his troops re-energized and came out with a convincing 72-37 victory over Clear Spring in MVAL Antietam Conference action. Clear Spring (0-8, 0-2) certainly helped out the cause from the opening tip, missing 11 of its 12 shots in the first quarter and not scoring from the field until the 1:40 mark.

The president of Allegheny Energy's energy trading company - a subsidiary responsible for the bulk of the company's recent financial losses - stepped down Monday. Michael P. Morrell, 54, chose to accept the company's offer of early retirement, said spokeswoman Debra A. Beck. The buyouts were offered to white-collar employees beginning in July as part of an effort to reduce the 6,000-person work force by 10 percent. David C. Benson, 50, has taken over Morrell's duties as president of Allegheny Energy Supply, which handles generating and marketing.

waynesboro@herald-mail.com WAYNECASTLE, Pa. - A longtime area holiday tradition that drew thousands of visitors over six decades to Waynecastle went on the auction block Thursday. The Waynecastle Christmas scenes - a nativity, singing carolers, Santa and elves, a horse and sleigh, an organist and a church choir - were the must-see visit every Christmas season. The figures were motorized to show movement. The display, which delighted children and adults, began simply with candles in the window of the home of Charles F. and Amanda Miller, said Amanda Reed, 34, of Sharpsburg, the Millers' great-granddaughter.

Bartlett is hardly 'insulated' To the editor: An article entitled "Bartlett is confident in re-election bid despite Republican backlash" that appeared in the May 11 edition of the Frederick Gazette, offers a rare, almost shocking glimpse into Bartlett's political thinking. As he acknowledges voters' concerns about gas prices and the Iraq war, Bartlett views himself as "insulated" because of the positions he has personally taken. Bartlett speaks of the need for a "national commitment with the breadth of the Apollo program" to tackle the looming energy crisis.

Do you remember hearing much about the Energy Policy Act of 2005, Public Law No. 109-58, 119 Statute 594? You should have been paying attention. To start with, be sure to move your clocks forward by one hour Saturday night. Daylight saving time arrives three weeks early this year. This is due to the new Energy Policy Act, a law passed by Congress two years ago that sought to address our critical energy needs. Really? Changing the day we start daylight savings time is a significant way to solve our energy crunch?

WAYNESBORO, Pa. -- Bob Dylan sang that "the answer, my friend, is blowin' in the wind. " And it just might be for a Waynesboro couple closely watching the energy crisis. Kurt and Natalie Kemerer installed a 35-foot residential wind generator in their backyard this summer. They've discovered that harvesting the wind's power has shaved about 25 percent off their monthly Allegheny Power bill. They hope the savings will be greater when Pennsylvania rate caps expire in coming years and electric bills increase dramatically.

Mail Call for 2/2 "To the person who lives in the North End about the garbage being picked up late. Do you think you are better than anyone else? Do you think yours should be picked up before anyone else?" "How could Ted Kennedy judge anyone? How can Kennedy judge Ashcroft with the life that he has led? I'll be a son of a gun, if this isn't getting deep. " "What is happening in our area?

To the editor: I am embarrassed that our country will not develop a sound, long-term energy policy. I am also troubled that most Americans complain about energy costs, but make no effort to learn about energies, either old (fossil) or new (renewable). Note I said country "will not," not cannot. We can. We have the science/technology, the organization skills, and business acumen. We lack the motivation. Our collective disinterest in educating ourselves and then requiring governmental action is also responsible for the current energy state.

This mistake will cost Obama To the editor: Our greatest national resource, without a doubt, is our youth - particularly our men and women in uniform. The mainstream media, as per usual, is writing off yet another Obama blunder as just a minor campaign gaffe. Nothing could be further from the truth. The fact that Sen. Barack Obama did not take time to visit our wounded troops in Germany during a time of war, even though it was scheduled, will be his "kiss of death.

CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. -- The answer to the crisis of high energy prices facing the nation cannot be solved by drilling for oil alone, but U.S. Rep. Bill Shuster said it is a good place to start. With a Sheetz sign for gas at $3.99 per gallon as a backdrop, Shuster, R-Pa., announced Tuesday that he has introduced legislation titled the Energy Independence Act that would allow drilling on the continental shelf and the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR), along with programs to develop alternative energy such as nuclear and wind power and coal liquefaction.
