marlob@herald-mail.com Following the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, the idea of being prepared for emergencies - big or small - has never seemed more important, according to the Red Cross. "The Washington County Chapter of the American Red Cross is suggesting that families prepare an emergency disaster supplies kit," said Cindy Kline, director of disaster services. Not a new idea with the American Red Cross, the push has been on since last Wednesday, when President Bush approved raising the level of civilian alert from code yellow to code orange - the highest level imposed since the alert system was established in March.

GREENCASTLE, Pa. - Many of the 125 vehicles shown in Sunday's Old Home Week Antique Car Show had ties to the Greencastle area. Most of the owners were from Franklin County. Many cars were purchased from Greencastle dealerships. And every last one of them, it seemed, had a story. Take LeErin Plasterer's firemist red 1965 Cadillac convertible, for example. The Greencastle man had a Cadillac in the early 1970s that was the same color but a different body type. Then, one day, he saw "Doc" Edward Carl's wife driving the convertible.

CHAMBERSBURG, PA. bonnieb@herald-mail.com Chambersburg might not have a parade for Independence Day, but that doesn't mean local residents don't celebrate. Despite blazing sun and high heat Monday, Memorial Park was crowded with people picnicking, watching a soccer tournament, playing volleyball and miniature golf, and admiring the antique and classic cars on display. Municipal Pool held Dollar Days, and hundreds of people took advantage of the low admission price, swooping down the slide into the swimming pool and entering their children in a race in the baby pool.

Though my father has been dead for more than 15 years, I sometimes have dreams in which he is alive and we are talking together, about politics or something else. Then, even as I dream, I realize that he is dead. And at that point, although I can still see him, it's as if I'm watching things unfold from somewhere outside the scene. This is part of growing up, I guess. If you dream that an alligator is chasing you, it does not seem as real as it did when you were a child. That's good, because when you wake up, there is no strong father there to pat you on the head and tell you things are going to be all right.

In Modena, Italy, the people track success by the size of the engine and the wonder of your rumble. Modena is to Europe what Indianapolis is to the United States. Car guys? They were born here. Ferrari is just down the road. So is Maserati and Lamborghini. Even the local Fiat dealer used to make his own race cars, just for fun. Modena doesn't just mean motors, it means the spirit of driving, the road and car becoming one. Today, the dreams of designers still come to life at 100 mph around bends and dips that challenge the world's best drivers.

The doctor was serious. The child, he said, had a "motor coordination" problem. Ask him to walk a straight line and the boy would turn it into a curve. Ask him to ride a bicycle and he would eventually walk. Some called him awkward. Others called him different. Milton da Silva called it amazing. How could his second son, the boy who had shown such an aptitude for Brazil's racing scene, the boy who had shared such an affection for his father's love of engines, wheels and motors, truly have a motor coordination problem?
