More than 15 firefighters responded to 10389 Newburg Road in Lurgan Township, Pa., on Sunday morning after receiving a report of a horse slipping through ice on a pond. When crews arrived shortly after 11 a.m., they found five or six horses standing on ice covering a large pond, according to Kevin Singer, a captain with the Newburg-Hopewell Volunteer Fire Department.

They used rope to pull the remaining horse out of the pond.

HAGERSTOWN - The Hagerstown Ice & Sports Complex will remain open until at least mid-June. The Hagerstown City Council agreed Tuesday to let the Hagerstown Youth Hockey Association operate the facility from Oct. 1 to June 15, 2008. "Now, it will become a full-schedule ice rink like it was before," City Recreation Facilities Coordinator Lewie Thomas said after the council voted. In August, the city terminated its contract with the ice complex's former operator of 10 years, the Washington County Sports Foundation, which hosted hockey leagues and several skating programs.

We all know that it is important to remove ice and snow from walkways to prevent injury. However, we often forget the damage that some materials we use to melt ice can do to plants and the environment. For years, we used rock salt to melt ice on roadways and sidewalks. We have all seen the rusty bridges, guardrails and brown evergreen trees caused by using rock salt. While the salt might be OK for roads, we need to be careful what we use around plants. Rock salt is sodium chloride.

tammyb@herald-mail.com Saturday's low temperature was a balmy 8 degrees, with the wind chill making it seem colder. Out at Greenbrier State Park east of Hagerstown, there were 8 to 10 inches of ice atop the lake. Obviously, it was a perfect day for a swim. That was the theory, at least, for three local men aiming for ice diving certification who went with their instructor for a bracing dip in the lake. "I was looking forward to it until I got up this morning and turned on the weather and saw that it was 9 degrees.

A couple of weeks ago, we had about three inches of snow. Then, the ground-surface plummeted to 20 degrees, while up in the stratosphere, the air warmed into the mid-30s. Along comes a major storm system, in which precipitation from way up high fell as rain, but froze upon hitting the earth's surface, creating a quarter-inch crust of solid ice on top of the existing snow. As any weatherman can tell you, these are the perfect meteorological conditions to own a dog. Not a reserved or careful dog, but one of those energetic, edgy, hyperactive, Joan Rivers dogs.

Each day after lunch, I have come to anticipate the same question: "Are we going to do an experiment in science today, Mrs. Prejean?" Most days we do something that requires prediction, movement, observation, classification or measurement. My third-graders are convinced that they are ready to dissect something, but I say there are many things we need to learn first. Lately we have been learning how to classify animals, and it has been a fun unit. Fun, that is, until we reached the last experiment.

On Tuesday, Maryland Agriculture Secretary Buddy Hance tried a sample of the Mango Wine Sorbet at Misty Meadow Farm near Smithsburg. “I thought it had wine,” Hance said after trying it and realizing that he was correct. Hance stopped at the creamery on the farm as part of his journey on Maryland's Best Ice Cream Trail. Misty Meadow Farm is one of the trail's eight dairy farms across the state that produce ice cream and sell it directly to customers. He said each farm has something that sets it apart.

July is National Ice Cream Month.  Many people like me will invent reasons to eat ice cream. This is the month the mercury flirts with 100, so why not eat ice cream? I am sure in our hurried work-a-day world, few people take time to make their own ice cream anymore. I am also sure if you asked someone if they have an ice cream freezer, they would look puzzled and say “no,” but they have them in the grocery store. So where did ice cream come from? Sit back and learn the story or lore, if you will.
