How do you define comfort food? Is it the simple, just-like-Mom-made food that makes you feel cozy and content? Area restaurants and vendors will give the term new meaning at the 13th annual Taste of the Town, Sunday, Aug. 10, in the grand ballroom of Ramada Inn in Hagerstown. The specialty fare won't be basic or down-home, but it will help to provide comfort. Proceeds from the event and auction benefit Hospice of Washington County Inc., offsetting medical expenses for care for terminally ill county residents and their families.

People packed the streets of downtown Chambersburg on Saturday to take advantage of IceFest's long list of activities. The scents of chili seasoning and onions lured many into the chili cook-off and others happily posed by the ice sculptures while the more adventurous crowd sought out the 40-foot ice slide. Barb Graham of Waynesboro, Pa., planned to throw caution — and her Atkins Diet — to the wind for one day and sample some chili. "I can't eat the beans, but I'm going to eat them anyway today," Graham said with a smile.

chambersburg@herald-mail.com CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - Theresa Bachman-Myers isn't sure how large a standard throne is supposed to be, but she knows one carved from ice later this winter will be big enough to seat children and adults for photos. The ice throne will be the largest sculpture on display during the three-day ice festival starting Jan. 31 in downtown Chambersburg. Several area banks pitched in for the "monster-sized sculpture," Bachman-Myers said. While enough area businesses and organizations have signed up to support about 30 small sculptures and three multi-block ones, she hopes more will sign on soon.

" "In 1937, under the sponsorship of the Washington County Historical Society, this community will elaborately observe the anniversaries of three momentous events in local and national history: The 200th Anniversary of the Settling of Washington County; The 175th Anniversary of the Founding of Hagerstown; and The 75th Anniversary of the Battle of Antietam," opened the letter asking for the leaders' participation in bringing the event to fruition.

Life is like a spice rack to Justin Davies. Think about it. Everyone is born with the basics in this dish we call life. For most, it's the combination of choices and influences in proportional measurements that make existence bland or zesty to one's taste. "Life had a recipe of its own," said Davies. If anyone should hold that philosophy close, it's Davies. In the last six years, he has transformed himself from New York teenager with aspirations of becoming a chef to starting center fielder of the Hagerstown Suns.
