As a former prison warden, I read with interest the three-part prison series recently published in The Herald Mail. Most of the articles centered on prison violence, gangs and safety issues, which are so important to the welfare of staff and inmates alike. For just a moment, I would like to share a few things that are also noteworthy and can occur if there is a little harmony within the prison. In 1991, I was reassigned to the Maryland Correctional Institution-Hagerstown after a major prison riot with many injuries to staff and inmates and a great deal of physical destruction.

CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - They're not a barbershop quartet, and they're not a big band. The Four Freshmen have a sound that member Bob Ferreira says is still innovative today. They'll be performing Friday night at The Capitol Theatre. The original Four Freshmen, formed in September 1948, created a sound that listeners in the 1950s weren't used to hearing - a four-part harmony with a male lead singing the melody, Ferreira says. For further distinction, The Four Freshmen play instruments.

HAGERSTOWN -- Some of their customers come in for the blueberry lollipops, others for the conversation and a friendly ribbing. The main reason most people walk through the door of Razor's Edge Barber Shop, though, is for a trim by a barber they consider a friend. This spring marks 40 years since owner Sam Rock opened his doors near Longmeadow Shopping Center in 1969. He even had the same landlord all those years, until recently. "We have been able to maintain this particular location because of fair rent and being able to work together with the landlord whatever the situation," Rock said of his former landlord, Turner Management Co. Rock, 71, of State Line, Pa., said he worked in the area years ago, moved to Los Angeles, then came back and saw a business opportunity.

" But it's not the only kind of music he said he likes. As a member of Williamsport's "Sophisticats" for four years, he's learned show tunes and a whole lot more.
