Inauguration affecting Hancock in different ways By this time next week, we will have a new president. The inauguration of Barack Obama is already affecting Hancock and Washington County in significant ways. Motel and B&B rooms are taken. My guest room is taken (my niece is coming from Chicago - she has a ticket), and we are anticipating heavier than usual traffic along Interstate 70. I hope many travelers will stop in Hancock to eat and/or buy gas and maybe notice our parks, the river, the canal and the Rail Trail.

In light of a recent spike in thefts of GPS units, the Washington County Sheriff's Department is recommending several steps to keep the devices secure, investigator Greg Alton said. First, GPS owners should write down the serial numbers of their devices, Alton said. That makes it easier to trace the GPS unit if it is stolen and helps police track down the owners of recovered units. In addition, Alton recommends locking the GPS unit in the glove compartment or trunk, especially while the car is in a public place.

When you are the Father of the Groom, there's not a whole lot for you to do. I found this out recently when my oldest son, Andy, got married. I was basically asked to show up. As the Father of the Groom, I was to attend the rehearsal dinner, give a toast at said dinner (which was optional) and walk with my son to the altar at the ceremony. That's about it. As the father of four sons, I will have this Father of the Groom thing down pretty well eventually. The wedding was held at Aberdeen Proving Grounds and the thing we found out we had to "prove" was that we were who we said we were.

WASHINGTON COUNTY -- After months of allegations that the man was stalking and abusing his ex-wife, he was sentenced to three months in jail. The day after he got out, he was back at it. He went to her house in Washington County. A security alarm went off. "The police caught him hiding between the car and garage," she said. He was wearing socks as gloves and carrying other suspicious items. For the woman, who agreed to speak about life as a domestic-violence victim if her name wasn't used, the episode was frightening, but not unique, despite the protective order she has against him. Once, she was beaten on the head with a crowbar in her home.

CHAMBERSBURG, PA. - The Franklin County Visitors Bureau has been "caching" in on a popular game to promote key spots. Establishing official geocache (pronounced geo-cash) sites can help to set the county apart from other areas of the state that also are rich in history, culture and natural beauty, according to Tourism Director Janet Pollard. Although her three caches are relatively new, many others have been hidden around the county for the treasure hunts that largely use common Global Positioning Systems (GPS)

So, Christmas is coming and you don't know what to get for your favorite golfer. Let's see if I can help you. Much depends on whether you like to touch the items you purchase, or whether you are comfortable going online to do your shopping. But before we go to where to buy, let's take a look at some ideas for gifts. Some of the more obvious - and also less expensive - items would include your golfer's favorite golf balls, golf gloves (make sure you get the right size), golf shirts, rain gear, hats, club-head covers for collegiate and pro sports teams and other accessories.
