While Pastor Reginald Rice serves the spiritual needs of the residents of Homewood at Williamsport, he will be the first to admit that comfort also can come in the form of a shampoo, a set and a good styling. "It's the best therapy you can get," Rice said recently when discussing the benefits of having beauticians available to the women and men who call Homewood home.

SMITHSBURG - Emma Worthington may not be the first youngster to contribute her hair to Locks of Love but the 11-year-old Smithsburg girl certainly can empathize with those who have lost their hair because of treatment for cancer. As shown in the "before" picture, Emma holds a picture of herself as she looked at age 5 when she was battling Rhabdomyosarcoma at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore.
