By LAURA ERNDE / Staff Writer photo: JOE CROCETTA / staff photographer [ enlarge ] The silky webs look more like the work of Halloween pranksters than inch-long caterpillars, but drive almost anywhere in the Tri-State area and you're bound to see trees shrouded with them. The netlike webs, woven by fall webworms, are unusually abundant this year, horticulture experts said. "This is absolutely the worst I've ever seen," said Henry Hogmire, entomology specialist at the West Virginia University Experiment Farm in Kearneysville, W.Va.

CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. -- In a nation where students are math- and science-challenged, where will the minds be developed to solve the energy crisis, combat global warming and meet other challenges facing the planet? Apparently, in the Fannett-Metal School District. Students from the pint-sized district have won the senior division for five years running going into last weekend's Franklin Science and Technology Fair. Fannett-Metal has about 600 students from kindergarten through high school, but more than 100 of them were at the Franklin Science and Technology Fair over the weekend at Chambersburg Area Middle School.

The ironic part about Neal Nilsen's story is that he struggled in math and science in his youth. "Go figure," Nilsen said. Now technology is Nilsen's thing. Nilsen has started and operated seven technology companies since 1969 and he has worked on General Motors' development of its OnStar service. Nilsen's current company, Ask Neal Home & Business Solutions, specializes in areas such as "smart home" technology, which focuses on efficient use of energy. Nilsen installed a wireless Internet system for Jefferson County's new community center at Sam Michaels Park and his company has been the technology provider for Jefferson Business Park, which is home to high-technology employers such as the U.S. Coast Guard.

Unwelcome invaders come in all shapes and sizes, and the most annoying are what are known as nonnatives. If you look at most of these nonnatives, they were introduced by humans. As Pogo said, "We have met the enemy and he is us. " Established ecosystems have developed their own natural balance and controls over time. Plants and animals within those systems find this balance suitable for survival or they have been able to adapt in order to survive within those conditions. When nonnative species from other ecosystems are introduced, they can upset that balance and bring harm to the established plants and animals and the whole ecosystem.

The sight of the flames licking the air, the crackle of the wood. The beauty of a virtual fire is that you don't have to worry about burning the house down. But the flames won't provide a heat warm enough to cover you like a blanket and the fireplace is limited to the biggest screen in the home. Real fireplaces require real maintenance. Professional chimney sweeps can be hired to check the chimney and fireplace, but let's face it ? not everyone is going to do that.
