HAGERSTOWN - Born near the end of the Revolutionary War, Overton Harne likely saw the rockets' red glare over Fort McHenry in 1814, and the retreat of Confederate forces from Gettysburg 49 years later, in a life that spanned most of the United States' first century. Overton and his wife, Susannah, both died in 1873 and, though the tombstone that marked their final resting place in Rose Hill Cemetery became broken and overgrown in the ensuing century, they left behind a legacy of hundreds if not thousands of descendants.

The Maryland Humanities Council will present David Hildebrand in a concert of “Music of the War of 1812 in America,” Sunday, May 19, at 4 p.m. in St. Mark's Fellowship Center, 18313 Lappans Road, Boonsboro.  The War of 1812 spawned a huge variety of songs in America. From the early stirrings of party politics under President Adams, the traumatic effect of Jefferson's Embargo in 1807, the triumph at Fort McHenry to the last battle in New Orleans, Americans took pen to paper to tear at political opponents, to dramatize the great sea battles between huge frigates in full sail and to laud battle heroes like Hull and Perry.

KEARNEYSVILLE, W.Va. - The Tri-State area boasts its share of craft shows, but the Over the Mountain Studio Tour provides more than a chance to see artisans show off their wares. The studio tour, in its 10th year, offers craft lovers an opportunity to see where the artisans create their work. "I like seeing people's studios, where they actually do the work," said Mariya Stokes, who helped her parents display their pottery at their shop on Paynes Ford Road on Saturday. "People actually get to see the kiln.

OPINION
By ART CALLAHAM | November 4, 2012
From the book “Winter of the World” by Ken Follett, speaking of the ambivalence and apathy of many pre- and post-WWII Germans, Follett writes: “… those inadequate people who were so scared by life that they preferred to live under harsh authority, to be told what to do and what to think by a government that allowed no dissent.  They were foolish and dangerous, but there were an awful lot of them”. To compare Nazi Germany and Communist-controlled East Germany with America today is not altogether farfetched; certainly our government is not “harsh” in terms of the enforcement of laws.
