katec@herald-mail.com A couple of weeks ago there were 20 pounds of blueberries in the basement of Bonnie Senay's Sharpsburg home. "Jam me," they were screaming, she laughs. She did and will continue to make jam for as long as the farms and fields of the Tri-State area yield fruit. Senay, who took the 2000 Washington County Ag Expo's prize for Best Jellies/Jams, will be entering some of her homemade wares in this year's competition, but her jam-making activities have gone beyond the annual weeklong county fair.

Go far enough down the jelly aisle and you might find some onion jam sitting next to the strawberry and grape preserves. Go a bit farther and, alas, there's red pepper jelly. It used to be that spreads such as onion or pepper weren't commonplace beyond farmers markets and gourmet specialty stores, local jam makers say. But now you can find them at the local grocer. "They're making a comeback," said Eve Felder, chef and associate dean for The Culinary Institute of America, based in Hyde Park, N.Y. Jellies, jams and preserves made from things other than sweet fruits can go great with meats and cheeses, Felder said.

chambersburg@herald-mail.com After driving all night from a festival in New Hampshire, The Bluegrass Brothers of Salem, Va., tuned up their instruments and played for an enthusiastic crowd Sunday afternoon at the Beck & Benedict Hardware Music Theatre. "A hardware store ... We've been everywhere and done it all," said Connie Dowdy, whose husband, Victor, is one of the brothers in The Bluegrass Brothers. Although a bit taken aback when she learned the band was booked in a hardware store, she liked the setting and the crowd of about 200 that showed up. For 16 years, music fans and musicians in the Tri-state area have known that Beck & Benedict means more than tools, custom glass work, and lawn and garden supplies.

And you know what? I like it.  I have discovered the joys of edible landscaping, mixing in plants you can eat with those that you can't. It's smart, lovely and sensible. Why not tuck in beautiful edibles among your posies? More gardeners are growing their own food because it's healthier and kinder to the environment.

Nicole Johnson isn't the only female driver in Advance Auto Parts Monster Jam, but almost.  Women are rarities behind the wheel of the oversized, growling trucks that can fly through the air and crush smaller vehicles beneath their enormous wheels. She wouldn't have it any other way.  A longtime leisure driver, Johnson learned her craft through “rock crawling,” an extreme form of offroad driving that takes heavy-duty dune buggies over boulders, mountainous hillsides and other rough terrain.  “My competition vehicle of choice was a hand-built, custom buggy,” she said.

Older guys talked about their first trains when they were children, often Lionels or lower-cost Marx sets, the engines of which got their power from current through the rails. Younger guys were showing off technology that has taken over their hobby - wireless engines and equipment run by computers through digital technology. It didn't seem to matter much, though, as the estimated 600 hobbyists who jammed the Ranson Civic Center for the Bunker Hill (W.Va.) Train Club Show were enjoying themselves.
