WARFORDSBURG, PA. - The healing process for a pair of combat-wounded Marines left their Washington-area hospital and moved to the Appalachian Mountains on Tuesday morning. Sgt. Todd Herman and Lance Cpl. Tony Gilliard accepted an invitation to visit Buck Valley Ranch and participate in a 4-mile trail ride on gelding Appaloosas named Percy and Champ. "I've been wanting to do this for years. ... I think it was great to be out there," Herman said to ranch owners Leon and Nadine Fox. Horseback riding provides physical therapy for the injured by enhancing a sense of balance, and building and massaging muscle, said Mike Benesch, who brought the Marines to his sister's ranch.

For family, healing is a work in progress By MARLO BARNHART / Staff Writer Man killed in road roller accident. The Aug. 21, 1995, newspaper headline was stark. The story was filled with details of the accident that claimed the life of Keith Shives, a Washington County Roads Department employee. What the story didn't say was that on Aug. 21, 1995, Megan and Mark Shives lost their dad. It was also the day Irene Shives said goodbye to her husband of 24 years.

On Monday night, Robert Griffin III will perform his usual pregame rituals. He'll listen to the Michael Jackson song “Thriller.” He'll take a stroll on the turf, from end zone to end zone. “I am not very superstitious,” Griffin said. “But I do walk around the field one time before every game to kind of mark my territory, saying, 'Within these lines, you control what happens.”' The last time he played, much of that control slipped away. He reinjured his right knee twice and became a diminished version of his record-breaking self.

Nationals manager Davey Johnson got what he wanted, a second consecutive rainout to give his battered team an extra day to heal. Maybe the mental break will turn out to be the catalyst the Nationals have been seeking. Certainly, nothing else has worked so far. The preseason NL East favorite remained one game below .500 Friday, when a series opener against the  Minnesota Twins was postponed as rain from Tropical Storm Andrea moved north. The game will be made up as part of a day-night doubleheader on Sunday.

Passers-by of the bridge over Hamilton Run near Northern Middle School on Saturday morning might have been reminded of the fairy tale “The Three Billy Goats Gruff.” Repeatedly, pairs and small groups of people approached the bridge with great care and caution. Most crossed over the bridge, then ventured guardedly to the swampy banks beneath. As it turned out, they were not looking out for a greedy troll who might gobble them up, but for a paper sign indicating a checkpoint.
