By VANDANA SINHA Staff Writer Jim Peterson is tired of taking the $9 taxi ride to the store for bread and milk. He doesn't like paying more than $3 for a 5-pound bag of sugar at a convenience store. And, he says, he is sick of being ignored. An activist for the homeless, Peterson has taken on another cause, this one for the senior citizens, downtown residents and himself. He is circulating a petition with the aim of having a grocery store move into Hagerstown's downtown.

waynesboro@herald-mail.com WAYNESBORO, Pa. - It's not the kind of grocery store where you can walk in and ask, "Where's the beef?" The Golden Soybean, a vegetarian health food store that opened this month at 215 W. Main St., doesn't sell beef, pork or poultry, although customers can buy an ersatz version of hot dogs, burgers and chicken patties made from textured soy protein or wheat gluten. Some products in the store use a play on words. There's "beaf" and "jerquee" instead of beef and jerky.

andrews@herald-mail.com The average wallet (or keychain) is loaded with discount cards - one for the grocery store, another for the gas station, one for the drug store. There may be other cards for airlines or hotels. Giant Food Stores spokesman Denny Hopkins and Weis Markets spokesman Dennis Curtin said that about 80 percent to 90 percent of their shoppers use discount cards when they buy groceries. Not everyone has conceded this new lifestyle, though. Some people reject loyalty cards as nothing but a way to gather personal information about them and monitor what they buy. One such activist group is called Consumers Against Supermarket Privacy Invasion And Numbering, or CASPIAN.
