Editor's note - With the 250th anniversary of the French and Indian War this year, The Daily Mail is running a monthly column on the war by local historian Allan R. Powell. The column usually appears on the last Thursday of the month. With the surrender of Canada in 1760, it seemed possible that European powers might bring about a cease-fire and begin a negotiated settlement. But this was not to be. Spain became increasingly uneasy about the probability that England would win the war. This would almost certainly result in a rearrangement of the old balance of power in Europe unacceptable to France and Spain.

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.

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.

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)

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.

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.
