"Our Waynesboro Home," a cheerful tune composed by Waynesboro native Steve Engle, brought tears to the eyes of many who filled Waynesboro Area Senior High School's auditorium for two hour-long choral concerts. Some who made up the nearly 150-member chorus, clad in white shirts and black pants or skirts, traveled thousands of miles to their alma mater to take part in the grand finale.

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.)

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.
