Dwayne Flohr was getting a bit of a history lesson Saturday at Valley Mall. Dwayne, 13, was checking out the antique tractors on display with his father, stopping at each tractor to listen to his father talk about his experiences or offer opinions about the machinery. "I worked with a lot of this stuff back in 1958, '59, '60," said Merle Flohr, 56, of the Martinsburg, W.Va., area. The "stuff" Flohr referred to was the tractors that had been on display for the past week throughout the mall, ending Saturday.

Editor's note: This is an occasional series of how-tos that you might have missed learning while growing up or in school. SMITHSBURG - Linda Nairn, family and consumer science teacher for Smithsburg Middle School, says that ironing is a lost art form. "My mother taught me to iron. She learned how to iron from my grandmother," says Nairn, who has been teaching for 35 years. As technology has progressed, the iron and ironing board have slowly been replaced by hand-held steamers or the promise of wrinkle-free materials.

koelble@herald-mail.com Brandon Sheaffer shot a 92 in the inaugural Junior Masters Tour tournament at Beaver Creek Country Club on June 17. A likely choice to win the Masters championship based on that performance? Slim, at that time. However, Sheaffer's game has come full cycle over six weeks, evidenced by his 5-over-par 77 on Thursday to become the first champion to have his name engraved on the Masters plaque, which will hang on the walls in the Beaver Creek pro shop.

Blocking and tackling are usually the most important things in football. Clear Spring knows those techniques will take them places. But they add two more factors on their list - health and prayer. Coach Craig Bathgate admits he's pretty happy with the team he has taking the field for the 2013 season, but it doesn't mean he isn't looking for a safety net or two. “We have to pray to stay healthy and we have to play iron man style,” he said. Health is important when you only have 25 players on the roster.

"Iron Man" is probably the most lucrative superhero franchise in Hollywood. Nolan's "Batman" series is sadly done, the "Spider-Man" reboot was hardly Marvel-ous, and I'm not convinced that Zack "Sucker Punch" Snyder can sell this generation on Superman in the upcoming "Man of Steel. " The real powerhouse is of course "The Avengers," the unprecedented convergence of superhero franchises that managed to rule the box office in an extremely competitive 2012. But as much as that film emphasized teamwork, there was little doubt that the most popular member of the team, and the one most capable of carrying the first follow-up film, was Iron Man. The new film sees Iron Man aka Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.)

The diameter of a cup on a golf green is supposed to be 4.25 inches. Ashley Grier would have preferred them to be 4.35 on Saturday. For a second straight day, Grier posted an even-par 72 in the Symetra Tour's Challenge at Musket Ridge, leaving her at even-par 144 for the tournament - good enough to make the cut for Sunday's final round. Grier posted a 2-under 34 on the front nine Saturday, which could have been much lower. “I could have been 4 or 5 under just on the front nine,” said Grier.

Honesty requires the admission of neglect for the deserved recognition of many progressive women who have contributed so much to our nation. I was inspired to read the life of Frances Perkins as a result of getting so many thrilling bits and pieces from my wife, Joanie, as she read about her life as the first cabinet-level woman appointee of President Franklin D. Roosevelt. In “The Woman Behind The New Deal,” author Kirstin Downey has given a very readable account of Perkins' most creative life and legacy as Secretary of Labor.

HAGERSTOWN - Things could have gotten away from Nik Steiner on the 18th hole Thursday, but a clutch iron shot led to a bogey-saving putt. Steiner captured the WACO Junior Golf Championship at Beaver Creek Country Club with a 7-over-par 79, one shot better than Chad Shindle's 80. “I hit the cart path on 18, had to re-tee and then hit a nice iron to the pin,” said Steiner, winning a WACO event for the second time this season. His fourth shot from 120 yards came to rest about 12 feet from the pin on the dogleg 18th, and Steiner rolled in the putt for a bogey that saved him from falling into a tie with Shindle.

Though a meeting last week left state lawmakers and fire and rescue association officials on the same page about some issues related to the association's use of public gaming money, officials left the meeting with many details still to be negotiated. "I think the important thing will be follow-up, and we'll have to follow up with principally the county officials because they're the ones who are going to know how this will work best," D. Bruce Poole, an attorney for the Washington County Volunteer Fire and Rescue Association, said Friday.
