waynesboro@herald-mail.com WAYNESBORO, Pa. - The Washington Township Supervisors were the recipients this week of an unusual gift - a working Ferris wheel. As of Thursday they didn't know what they were going to do with it. It's been taken apart and is behind the township office building under a tarp. As Ferris wheels go, this one is a baby. It only stands about 15 feet high and its wheel is only 10 feet across, said Jerry Zeigler, zoning enforcement officer for the township.

SHARPSBURG - When Hal Spielman was growing up, going to the Maryland State Fair was a big deal. "That was my vacation. I got to go to the state fair and show hogs," the 59-year-old Spielman said. The Boonsboro High School graduate said that when he showed hogs, most of the competition was other Boonsboro youth who also showed the Ohio Improved Chesters that Spielman showed. He considered the local and state fairs a chance to compete and hang out with friends. Growing up on the Mumma Farm in Sharpsburg, Spielman's life has revolved around agriculture.
