To the editor: Since the old question of why we have seperation of the church and the state has once again reared it's ugly head, I feel that it is high time for a mini-history lesson to explain why our Founders felt as they did, and why they set up our nation under such strictures. It all began in the late 1400s in Merry Old England. King Henry VII (House of Tudor) had four children: Arthur, Margaret, Henry and Mary. They were all Catholic, and so was England, for the most part.

With almost half the season of football over, things begin to heat up. Teams begin to play harder to get into the playoffs. For others, it's just for pride. There are only nine weeks before the post-season and the unbeaten and winless are still out there. The best game this week was Jacksonville at Tampa Bay. The Jaguars came in 4-2 while the Buccaneers came in 4-3. Tampa Bay quarterback Jeff Garcia had not thrown an interception this season until halfway through the second quarter.

waynesboro@herald-mail.com WAYNESBORO, Pa. - The story of a Bible that ended up in a Waynesboro church is like a walk through English history. Late last year, an anonymous donor gave a Geneva Bible that was printed in 1584 to Trinity United Church of Christ. The Bible went on display at the altar for the first time last week, said Christine S. Boardman, interim church pastor. "This is a very, very special Bible for any church," Boardman said. "An anonymous donor came forward from the church community and gave it to us. It was a special gift to the church for Christmas.

Chalky, gritty, funny-shaped candies of old are Susan Benjamin's windows into history. And history never tasted so sweet. "Put this in your mouth and close your eyes," said Benjamin, an author, former journalist and, more recently, a candy researcher. "Now imagine you're very cold and you're fighting in the Civil War.

"Yours is a voice such as one hears once in a hundred years," so exclaimed conductor Arturo Toscanini when he heard mezzo-soprano Marian Anderson (1897-1993) sing in 1935.   A bronze sculpture of Anderson, now on exhibition at the Washington County Museum of Fine Arts, was made by another admirer, the Romanian-born American sculptor Nicolaus Koni (1911-2000), who had heard her sing many times. Koni emphasized Andersons' high cheekbones and heavy eyebrows, giving the bronze sculpture a rich brown patina, or finish.
