Two carnival rides and trailers toppled Sunday evening as they were being hauled on Interstate 70, backing up westbound traffic. Maryland State Police Trooper 1st Class Scott Bare said the driver, David Eugene Southard, 20, of Hagerstown, reported that the trailers started to sway and he lost control. The trailers were attached to one another and to a 1989 Ford pickup truck Southard was driving, but both trailers separated from the truck, Bare said. Police did not issue any tickets.

The 92nd annual Fulton County Fair in McConnellsburg was packed with people of all ages ready to have a good time Wednesday, whether that meant digging into a plate of french fries or climbing into a burlap sack and sliding down a slide. Every time Zoe Shearer, 4, circled her kiddie car about the track, she waved to her parents, Julie and Jeff Shearer, who proudly smiled from the sidelines. “This is what it's all about. We do this for the kids,” Julie Shearer said. Even thought Zoe liked her car ride, she loved the Ferris wheel and one ride was not enough - she planned on taking six trips before the evening was over.

HAGERSTOWN - Standing outside her Hagerstown home Sunday evening, Stephanie Huffman could not contain her wide smile. Then she began to laugh. "I just love that Santa," she said, pointing at one of the many lighted Christmas decorations. She and her husband, Clarence Huffman Sr., worked for about one month setting up about 50,000 lights on their home, garage and lawn. Then, on Thanksgiving, they flipped the switch. The Huffmans' home on Crystal Falls Drive is always decorated for Christmas, they said - inside and out. "We love it. We love doing it," Stephanie said.

HANCOCK - Few things can beat the appeal of performing at an outdoor concert in the dead of summer, said Tori Anderson, lead singer of the country band Tori Anderson and Possum Holler. Not even being locked in a portable toilet minutes before show time, Anderson said. Or the bugs Anderson sometimes swallows onstage when she opens her mouth to sing. Bugs and mishaps aside, "our roots are here," said Anderson, a Hancock resident who said the band prefers to play venues in the Tri-State area - with outdoor shows being Anderson's favorite.

CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. -- The Scrambler, the Ferris wheel and the miniature cars remained motionless on Sunday afternoon at the Franklin County Fair. Fresh straw stayed fluffed in the livestock areas without cows to trample it. Yet, signs of life began to present themselves as the fair's first of seven days kicked off. Money changed hands as the first Italian ice treats and sandwiches were sold. Judges' instructions from the youth horse show echoed from the arena while fair queen, princess and little miss contestants practiced for tonight's competition on the main stage.
