SHARPSBURG -- The Antietam Iron Works Bridge on Harpers Ferry Road, over Antietam Creek south of Sharpsburg, is expected to be closed into December as work has started to rebuild the bridge, a county official said Thursday. Work began June 14, said Rob Slocum, Washington County's deputy director of public works. The project is similar to the work done at the Funkstown bridge in 2008. It includes removing and rebuilding the roadway on the bridge, rebuilding portions of the bridge's walls with the existing stone and new mortar, putting new concrete caps over the walls, and some roadwork near the bridge, Slocum said.

o View Ag Expo photos for purchase! There were no celebrity judges on hand nor river eel on the list of ingredients, but the inaugural Iron Chef competition at the Washington County Ag Expo & Fair drew a crowd, perhaps drawn by the aromas wafting from the grills of the five teams. Chef X, a team composed of two ex-chefs and their wives, scored a perfect 100 points to take home the first-place trophy and the grill upon which they produced their winning appetizer, entree and dessert.

Only two teams showed up for the first Iron Chef Burger competition Sunday at the Washington County Ag Expo & Fair Sunday. But it didn't matter. The two burgers up for judging were so fat, so stuffed with cheese and so mouthwatering that the judges were having a tough time determining a winner. But after some scoring on qualities including taste, texture, aroma and creativity, four judges were able to award the first-place prize to Laurie and Jay Waltz of Chewsville for their pizza burger.

Feeling sleepy, grumpy, have a headache or no energy? It could be you just need time to recover from a busy, hectic schedule. But if your fatigue just won't go away, you might have iron-deficiency anemia. [cont. from lifestyle ] Iron is an essential component of hemoglobin, the protein that carries oxygen in the bloodstream. Low iron means blood can't deliver as much oxygen to body tissues. When too little oxygen gets to your brain and other parts of your body, you may feel tired or irritable and have difficulty concentrating.

Iron is an important nutrient for athletes Whether pumping iron, training for the Iron Man Marathon or just trying to stay fit, iron is one nutrient that needs to be in balance for peak performance. Iron-deficiency anemia is relatively common among teenage girls and women. It's even more common among female athletes, especially runners and ballet dancers. When women with marginal iron stores stop menstruating as their bodies attempt to conserve iron, they may be setting themselves up for the early onset of osteoporosis.

SAINT JAMES -- New Saint James football coach Chris Milmoe has tabbed "Ironmen" as the theme to the upcoming season as many of the Saints players are being counted on for two-way play. The main ironman on campus this year will be senior Mike Russ, who returns at quarterback and will find himself in a new defensive position that he is relishing.

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.

"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.)
