Three local cancer survivors will appear on ABC's "Good Morning America" this Sunday to voice their strong opposition to recent calls for same-day mastectomies. A number of managed health care organizations have advocated same-day procedures as a way to keep health costs down. Some doctors have said the procedure can now be done safely in a single day. But Hagerstown residents Sunny England, Quincy Kohler and Nancy Younker, all members of a cancer support group, say that is simply too little time.

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.

Sometimes we might assume that we need to return to ancient Greece as a source of good ideas. There is little doubt that a rich, original source of thought is readily available from Socrates, Plato, Aristotle and other well-known ancients. Another rich place to mine for brilliance is England. One overlooked person at the close of the medieval period, Francis Bacon, had a grasp that was almost modern of those obstructions that thwart the mind in the quest for knowledge. Bacon was one of the earliest of a long line of gifted British thinkers who led the way in developing the philosophy of science.

There are no two ways about it - Thomas “Tom” Law was a craftsman. From his training at a private art school in Washington, D.C., in seventh and eighth grade, electrical training while in the U.S. Navy, to his skills as a carpenter, sharpener of vintage hand saws and maker and restorer of Civil War drums, Law was known far and wide for his talents. “He was multitalented with multiple interests. You'd think any one of them would have been enough,” said Tom's oldest brother, Preston E. “Toby” Law Jr. of Hagerstown.

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.

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.
