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.

katec@herald-mail.com The odds were great. Only two people took a chance at winning the $50 prize in The Herald-Mail's coolest mailbox contest this summer. Our judges chose Brenda Keller's entry. It's a mailbox that looks like a 1934 Chevrolet. She found it at a car show in Pennsylvania about three years ago. Keller and her husband, Terry, live in Hagerstown and are car enthusiasts. Both have antique automobiles. Terry has a 1969 Z28 - a Chevy Camaro - with its original motor.

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.

German machine-gun fire hammered on the door of Arthur Staymates' landing craft as it approached Omaha Beach on D-Day, June 6, 1944. Now a gray-haired octogenarian, Staymates said that the American soldiers believed they would be cut to pieces if they didn't get out before the steel door crashed open. “A whole bunch of us went over the side,” Staymates said during a recent interview at his Hagerstown home. “That saved my life.” Weighed down by ammunition, weapons and supplies, the men plunged into about 8 feet of salt water, hitting the bottom of the English Channel.

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.
