marieg@herald-mail.com BOONSBORO - Oley Griffith looks at 2006 as a year of change. As fire chief of the First Hose Co. of Boonsboro, he has seen growth in his community that will have an impact on fire service. But Saturday night was not about change.

pepperb@herald-mail.com HANCOCK - Like son, like father. A year ago, Brandon Hill, now 16, wasn't old enough to drive his pride-and-joy gold 1979 Pontiac Trans Am to his first car show, so his father offered to get behind the wheel instead. But when Stacy Hill turned the ignition, more than just an engine was sparked. Brandon Hill drove his own car to the annual Father's Day Car Show at Hancock's Widmeyer Memorial Park on Sunday. Stacy Hill, 35, followed, in his own "new" 1978 white Pontiac Trans Am, which Brandon washed and waxed for him that morning as a present.

CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. -- "You know, Blanche DuBois in 'A Streetcar Named Desire' told Stanley she depends on the kindness of strangers. Well, so do I. And you know what? They come through. The come through in a big way," Lynne Newman said. Outside the room where Newman retreated for a moment of quiet, organized chaos sounded in the voices of those strangers as they rustled wrapping paper, and clanked pots and pans as they worked to bring Christmas alive. Even as she enjoyed a break from the go-go-go, the noise was music to Newman's ears.

FORT LOUDON, Pa. - The carnival atmosphere that once accompanied Frontier Days has become a colonial atmosphere in recent years, reflecting the era when the fort site was at the fringe of the North American frontier. "When we first started it, we did carnivals to raise money, but that's not acceptable at a state historic site," said Anna Rotz, president of the Fort Loudon Historical Society. A few yards away, a screaming Shawnee war party fired muskets and took a family of settlers hostage.

Like crabgrass, the Fourth of July Mile Long Yard Sale has been spreading over Hagerstown's North End for years, devouring more side streets off Longmeadow Road, drawing thousands of bargain-hunters and turning residents into entrepreneurs for a day. “We've lived here nine years, and this is our ninth year participating,” said Jon Phelps, sitting under a canopy Wednesday outside his Longmeadow Road home. “It's a very good opportunity to get rid of unwanted items that need a new home.” Planning for the sale is a year-round effort, Phelps said.
