Sharrett Inc. service technicians distributed fliers along Dual Highway Thursday evening in an attempt to gather support as they try to negotiate a union contract with the car dealership, according to Teamsters union organizer Tom Krause. The service technicians voted to organize last Oct. 25 and have been trying to negotiate a contract with Sharrett officials since late winter, Krause said. Sharrett has businesses at 1333 Dual Highway and the Interstate 70 Automall. The company has been stalling negotiations so the roughly 23 service technicians are trying to gain public support, he said.

Frederick Kirby Garrett of 142 Baker St. in Winchester, Va., was arraigned Tuesday by Magistrate Sandra L. Miller on two counts of criminal invasion of privacy and five counts of displaying obscene matter to minors, according to court documents.

ROCKVILLE, Md. (AP) - A Christian group has accused the Montgomery County school system of continuing to block it from sending fliers home with students that advertise after-school Bible study classes. The Child Evangelism Fellowship, or CEF, filed an appeal Wednesday in the U.S. 4th Circuit Court of Appeals in Richmond, Va. Montgomery blocked the group from sending materials home with students because the fliers were considered too religious. CEF filed suit in 2001, lost in a lower federal court but eventually won last year in the appeals court, which sent the case back to District Court.

Lois and John Lehman of Waynesboro, Pa., grinned and waved to family members as they gently were lifted into the sky aboard one of the 13 brightly colored hot air balloons featured at the events center's inaugural three-day balloon festival. As their balloon rose slowly from the ground, the Lehmans' family and spectators applauded.

The life Annette Ipsan once saved weighed no more than a dime. Ipsan, horticulture educator for the Maryland Cooperative Extension of Washington County, says she still can remember the first time she was able to help revive a ruby-throated hummingbird. After sticking its little beak into sugar water solution, the bird fluttered back to life. "The whole process took about 10 minutes," she says. Ipsan says she's been fascinated by hummingbirds since she was a child. Her parents grew plants that attracted hummingbirds and also had feeders.

HAGERSTOWN - Rocket science is a piece of cake for Joshua Hurd. "The design is the most important part," said Hurd, 13, whose bottle rocket was among the highest fliers Friday afternoon when participants in a rocketry class fired off their creations at the softball field at Hagerstown Community College. Hurd's rocket was light and small, two factors he said were key to its flight. "It was not heavy, which is important," he said. Hurd said he built his rocket out of a small water bottle he had left over from lunch the day before.
