By RICHARD F. BELISLE Staff Writer, Waynesboro GREENCASTLE, Pa. - One of Greencastle's newest businesses deals with a medically approved procedure that was first used in 1869 in St. Louis, Mo. Betty E. Geyer opened her electrolysis office in July above ELM Shoes on the northeast corner of Center Square in Greencastle, the reality of a longtime dream for the 47-year-old Hagerstown resident. Electrolysis, according to Geyer's brochure, is the safe removal of unwanted hair using a tiny metal probe that is inserted into the hair follicle and charged with a small amount of electric current.

State Sen. Richard Alloway is typically clean shaven while in the capital, but the legislator representing Franklin and Adams counties now sports a beard growing longer by the day.

He hands out a flier about the causes when asked about the facial hair. "It's become a conversation piece," he said.

But for the last 3 1/2 months, Cunningham abandoned his razor and scrapped the shaving cream, hoping his whiskers would make him a winner. As part of Waynesboro's bicentennial celebration, Brothers of the Brush Inc. held a contest Sunday afternoon on the Center Square, attended by more than 100 spectators, awarding cash prizes to those who sported the longest, ugliest and most unusual whiskers, among other categories.

Stephen Strasburg won a duel with Cole Hamels, Bryce Harper aggravated a knee, and the Washington Nationals managed to score five runs in an inning for the first time this season. Still, it is not enough for Davey Johnson to start shaving. Sunday's 6-1 win kept Washington above .500 and ahead of the Philadelphia Phillies in the NL East. Strasburg (3-5), who has pitched better than his record indicates, struck out a season-high nine and walked one in eight innings. Philadelphia scored its only run in the eighth on Strasburg's first big league balk.

The Washington Nationals didn't have a close shave, and neither did Davey Johnson. The 70-year-old manager still looked closer to 80 after the Nationals beat the Philadelphia Phillies 5-2 Friday night, sporting the scraggly beginnings of facial hair he had vowed to keep until his team started hitting. Five runs weren't enough, even though it was the most the Nationals had scored in a week. There was also a four-run fifth, the first time Washington had put up four or more in an inning in almost a month.

If the bullets had been brutal on the flesh, the hospital menu wasn't much better in the way of promoting healing. Hard bread, greasy pork and bitter coffee did not have the medicinal qualities of chicken soup.
