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.

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. You're in a ditch somewhere. This is what you may have been eating when you felt bad or needed some energy. That's the real flavor. " "How often do you get that?"

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.
by DON AINES | February 7, 2005 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.

Simon Holt never planned or expected to cross the pond from England to the United States along with his wife and two young boys to live and work. Nonetheless, he did. "It hadn't even crossed my mind," said Holt, 45, who lives and works at Saint James School, a boarding school southwest of Hagerstown. It was his lifelong affinity for music that paved his path. Holt said he grew up in the midlands of Malvern, Worcestershire. Both of his parents were organists, and Holt began playing the piano at age 6. At 7, Holt said he went away to a preparatory school that offered academic and music education.

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.
by RICHARD F. BELISLE | September 5, 2005 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.
