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.

Gold and silver apparently are not the only "precious" metals in the world, at least in the eyes of area thieves. In fact, just about any item containing copper or any other increasingly valuable metal - from heat pumps and air conditioners to catalytic converters - continues to be a target for theft, according to law-enforcement agencies in Washington County and the Eastern Panhandle. Utility manhole covers, grates from car washes and items made with iron and steel also have been carted off to recycling facilities for quick cash, police said this week.

Everyone comes for Civil War battle re-enactments - the smoke, the noise, the advancing lines of men and horses. But who stays for dinner after the battle? As spectators dribbled out of the grounds after Saturday's  "Maryland, My Maryland" re-enactment of the Battle of South Mountain, Sharon Jackson poked the fire at the 27th Virginia Company C encampment. Jackson is from Pennsylvania, but she's with the 4th Texas Company B. But on Saturday, her unit was on campaign, so she was adopted as a cook by the 27th Virginia.

Lemon juice is what makes L. Bruce Massey's sweet potato pie taste more like sweet potato. "It neutralizes the flavors," Massey explained to The Herald-Mail from his kitchen table, over a slice of pie. In Massey's recipe, the clove, nutmeg and cinnamon triumvirate is not required, though a tablespoon of cinnamon is optional. He specifies orange sweet potatoes - Georgia jets or red jewel. Never use canned. And yes, there's lemon juice. The effect is a light, creamy pie with a clean taste of sweet potato.

The year is 1959. African-Americans from Hagerstown, Winchester, Martinsburg and Charles Town travel over dark, back-country roads to a common destination in southern Washington County. Hundreds of black people gather every weekend for this vital mission - to let the good times roll. Music-lovers spill out of jam-packed cars and tumble out of pickup trucks. They stream toward the rhythmic sounds throbbing from a low-lying block building. At the far end of the long narrow structure, an electrifying young entertainer dominates the event.

BELISLE / Staff Writer, Waynesboro MONT ALTO, Pa. - The anvil on a sawed-off tree trunk next to the coal-fired forge at Antietam Iron Works was made in England, but no one knows when. A man just showed up with it one day and asked Austin Gunnell if he wanted to buy it. It weighs nearly 400 pounds and was forged from a single chunk of iron. Its builder welded an inch-thick sheet of steel on the top so it would keep its shape when iron is pounded into different forms.
