HAGERSTOWN -- An estimated crowd of 80,000 swelled the sidewalks of Potomac Street in Hagerstown on Saturday night for the 85th Alsatia Mummers Parade. Rain dampened the turnout for the annual celebration, which typically draws about 100,000, Hagerstown Police Department Capt. Mark Holtzman said. There were 202 floats, bands and other units, including a dozen mummers, that paraded down the 1.9-mile route over more than three hours, said James McCleaf II, chairman of the parade.

This coming weekend the Chargers visit New England for the AFC Championship game and the Giants are on the road in Green Bay for the NFC Championship game. The way the Chargers defeated the Colts on Sunday, I'm picking San Diego over New England. I take the Chargers over the Patriots partly because I want New England to lose, but also because San Diego has the No. 1 rusher in the league, LaDainian Tomlinson. The Patriots have a strong defense, but they are stronger against the pass than the rush.

By Elizabeth Johns Special to The Herald-Mail   “New England Afternoon” radiates the bright yellows and greens of summer. A dark, sinuous creek leads the viewer into the landscape through a foreground dotted with livestock. Blue-tinged mountains in the far distance, a church steeple in the background and a sky filled with scudding clouds - typical New England characteristics - give the scene its sweeping scale. Willard Metcalf's high point of view and the nearly square canvas (popular at the time)

chambersburg@herald-mail.com GREENCASTLE, PA. - With ushers dressed as referees, worshippers in football jerseys, a renowned ex-player, an indoor tailgate party, "The Star-Spangled Banner" and the crowd doing the wave, Sunday's Super Bowl Service at Antrim Brethren in Christ Church had all the trappings of a pregame rally. Former University of Southern California quarterback James Jones was there to pump up the crowd, but not for the game later that day between the Philadelphia Eagles and New England Patriots.

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.

The church was plain with old highback wooden pews. With no electricity, light for the evening wedding ceremony was provided by battery-operated candles. The scent of firewood filled the rustic church. "Elegant," is how Madonna Zimmerman remembers her wedding ceremony in Antietam National Battlefield's Dunker Church last September. Zimmerman, 26, and her husband, Wesley, 24, hadn't originally planned for a wedding in the historic church. They thought of getting married at the battlefield after finding out they wouldn't be able to get a Pennsylvania marriage license in time to get married on their planned wedding date -- Sept.

How did Accident, Md., get its name? By accident, of course. Surveyors were sent out on separate expeditions for Lord Baltimore and William Penn after the King of England made them land grants in the New World, said Accident Town Clerk Ruth Ann Hahn. Instructed to survey the best farmland so many miles west of Baltimore, both surveyors ended up marking the same oak tree, leading the area to be dubbed "accidental tract," Hahn said. By about 1800, the area, also called Flowery Vale in the early days of settlement, was being called Accident, she said.
