WAYNESBORO, Pa. - For Waynesboro boys basketball coach Tom Hoffman, watching Carlisle play must be a little like the title of John Cougar's 80's rock hit, "Hurt So Good. " Carlisle (16-4) played up to its top billing against the Indians on Saturday afternoon, racing out to a 30-10 lead early and cruising home with a 69-37 victory. The athletic Herd emptied their bench, putting 12 players in the scorebook, and held off a scrappy Waynesboro team that was simply outsized and undermanned.

Beginning at 10 a.m. Thursday, Shenandoah Jerseys will be hosting the next installment of the Washington County Pasture Walk Series. While the Janet Stiles' family only uses pasture for dry cows and heifers, they moved their milking herd into new facilities in 2005, Extension educator Jeff Semler said Monday. This walk will focus on these facilities and on the herd's genetics and marketing, Semler said. The farm is on Printz Road off of Md. 68 across from Devil's Backbone County Park.

waynesboro@herald-mail.com WILLIAMSON, Pa. - There are some obvious hazards when it comes to the sport of bull riding. Then, there are the not-so-obvious ones. "You don't do this to impress women. It's too dangerous," said Robert Gordon, 21, of Hagerstown, one of two dozen riders competing for prize money Thursday night at the Franklin County Fair. Divorce is an occupational hazard among bull riders, Gordon said. "My ex-wife didn't like it too much. You get beat up a lot," he said.

CARLISLE, Pa. - If Carlisle is still seeking to prove it is serious about making a run at the District 3-AAAA playoffs this season, Friday night's 49-14 domination of Chambersburg in their Mid-Penn Commonwealth matchup certainly helped its cause. "This was more of a statement game to let other teams know that we don't just win the big games," said Herd quarterback Clem Johnson, who rushed for 47 yards on seven carries. "Little games count too because little games add up to bigger ones.

What's with this push for home rule? Have Washington County citizens been shortchanged for the last 200-plus years? What local "laws and issues" have been ignored that have so greatly affected our lives? To listen to the growing drumbeat from those in support, one would think that unless charter is implemented, local citizens will be cast into some dark, burning pit. I don't know about you, but every time a special-interest group is hawking for support, there's a whole lot more involved than we simple folks can even guess.

CHAMBERSBURG, PA - For the Carlisle boys basketball team, Eric Bowers provided a degree of poetic justice. For Chambersburg, there was no justice at all. Bowers, who was inserted into the game after starting point guard Buck Hodge fouled out with 24.7 seconds left in overtime, calmly drained a 3-pointer from the top of the key to propel the Thundering Herd to a 75-73 Mid-Penn Commonwealth victory, marking the Trojans' sixth league loss of...

A herd of cattlemen from across the state stampeded into the Four Points Sheraton on Saturday to eat beef and discuss everything that is bovine during the 20th annual Maryland Cattle Industry Convention. One of the day's events focused on the industry's future. Nearly 350 people packed the hotel's grand ballroom to honor more than 100 children who competed in a "Livestock Skillathon" earlier Saturday. The skillathon consisted of several stations that had the contestants identify, among other things, cattle breeds and cuts of meat.

To the editor: On Aug. 22 there was article on the front page of the paper concerning the horses that were removed from Ms. Reinken's Sharpsburg farm in December. The article seemed to raise more questions than it answered. From the article, it appears that the Humane Society doesn't know what is going on with the horses. The article states that 75 horses were removed, then goes on to say, "A few died, but about a dozen mares gave birth to foals, giving rescuers and animal authorities close to 85 horses to worry about.

Subject 2. One bovine, female, with brain the size of a lemon. Mission: Move Subject 2 about 30 feet to the west, with the encouragement of Subject(s) 1. Long story short: We've been at it for three weeks now, but the aforementioned cow is in the same place she's always been, with little sign that we will ever get her to the desired location. What is so hard about moving a cow from one 10-acre pasture across a farm lane to a second 10-acre pasture, and why would you want to do this in the first place?

Heading into the District 3 playoffs, the Greencastle-Antrim boys basketball team was looking to add a win to its impressive résumé in the final game of the regular season. Unfortunately, the Blue Devils had a poor defensive effort in the first half and were unable to capitalize on strong second halves from Joel Zola and Zach Faulkner in a 64-52 loss to Carlisle on Wednesday night. “I expect that from them (Zola and Faulkner) every night,” Greencastle head coach Gary Martin said.

Geno Smith threw two first-half touchdown passes, Tavon Austin returned a kickoff for a score and No. 24 West Virginia beat Marshall 34-13 on Sunday night in a game that was stopped early in the fourth quarter because of lightning. Smith completed 26 of 35 passes for 249 yards. Despite difficulty running the ball, West Virginia improved to 11-0 against its cross-state foe, including six wins since the series resumed in 2006. Marshall was limited to 13 first downs, 187 total yards and no offensive touchdowns.

I can't deal with this. Not today. Not ever. A liberal version of the Tea Party? Please, just kill me now. If anything has choo-choo wreck written all over it, wait until you get a load of "One Nation," a coalition formed to "counter the tea party narrative" and jumpstart a progressive movement that's been down in the dumps since, oh I don't know, maybe the days of the child-labor reformers. Really, you think the Tea Party is disorganized? Wait until the liberals get behind the wheel of that pickup.

To the editor: I would like to publicly acknowledge Paul Miller, executive director of the Humane Society of Washington County, for his extraordinary efforts leading up to the animal cruelty case against Gregory Wiles. As most are aware, in December 2006, the HSWC was thrust into what is believed to be the largest horse rescue ever in the state of Maryland. Five horses lost their lives and the 70 that survived needed to be nursed back to health and placed in safe homes.

From April 29 to May 6, I had the opportunity to visit the Republic of Georgia. For many, you will remember Georgia was a member of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, until 1991 with the fall of the Berlin Wall and the subsequent weakening of communism in Eastern Europe. The Republic of Georgia is not Russia, which many people have mistakenly assumed after my telling them where I was going or where I had been. If you are looking to find Georgia on the map, it is east of the Black Sea and north of Turkey.

One of the major problems for large wildlife populations is the potential for disease, especially those transmitted between animals. In our area, and actually for most of the country, the most alarming is Chronic Wasting Disease. CWD has been confirmed in the deer herd around Slanesville, W.Va., but so far has been confined to that general area. CWD is very bad business. It is similar to, but not the same as, Mad Cow Disease. CWD is giving wildlife managers problems in formulating policies and regulations as they try to keep the disease from expanding to areas currently free of the disease.
