CHARLES TOWN, W.Va. -- With about 200 vendors, the 34th annual Fall Mountain Heritage Arts & Crafts Festival offers plenty of choices, including artwork, wine, baskets, quilts, jewelry, toys, furniture and everything in between.  It's a family affair under the tent at Skip's Grist Mill.

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.

West End travels to Conococheague tonight for the championship round of the 11-12 All-Star Tournament.

HAGERSTOWN -- Named for a character in the original "Mission Impossible" TV show, Cinnamon Rowland said she didn't have to come up with a stage name -- her parents gave her one when she was born. As an elementary school teacher and longtime Potomac Playmakers performer, Rowland, 41, is on "stage" every day. "I think of teaching as almost performing. You have to be onstage to keep them entertained," Rowland said. Rowland has taught vocal music at Emma K. Doub School for Integrated Arts & Technology for 18 years, the first 10 years splitting her time between Emma K. Doub and Winter Street Elementary School.

SHENANDOAH JUNCTION, W.Va. - While everyone else at Sager Field wanted to make Friday night about John Lowery - the only baseball coach in the 36-year history of Jefferson High School - Lowery wanted to make the night about everyone else. As far as he's concerned, the 1,000 victories he now has are simply a matter of being "in the right place at the right time. " "The program could not have succeeded without the contributions of a lot of people. I've just been fortunate to be the coach," Lowery said during a brief ceremony following a 10-0 victory over Freedom (Va.)

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.
