Today The Herald-Mail is publishing a combined edition of The Morning Herald and The Daily Mail, to allow at least some of our employees to celebrate Independence Day. Through the years, July 4 has traditionally been marked with parades, family get-togethers and public concerts of patriotic music. Whatever form your celebration takes, we urge you to spend at least a small part of it reflecting on the origins of this holiday, and on what all Americans owe to those who decided that this collection of British colonies ought to be a country more than 200 years ago.

O'Reilly as Chicken Little To the editor: Syndicated columnist Bill O'Reilly recently stated that the U.S. is "smack in the middle of WWIII. " Well, heh Bill, thanks for the update. I am going to place you second on my list, just behind Chicken Little, for accurate news reporting. I shouldn't be surprised. After all, this is the guy who said Saddam was a modern day Hitler. Well they both were thugs and they both had distinctive moustaches, but that's about where the similarities end. Hitler's Germany did take on much of the world for about four years; Saddam's Iraq took on ...ah Kuwait for awhile.

"That's when I learned the most about my job," she said. "That's when I'd be running for cover," said her grandmother, Lee Bender.

CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. -- Here's a bright spot in Franklin County manufacturing: Letterkenny Army Depot is hiring. The county's largest employer, with 3,400 people on the payroll, needs civilians with general automotive skills, Commander Steven Shapiro said. He expects the depot's work force to be 5 to 10 percent larger by the end of the year, largely thanks to President Barack Obama's commitment to pull combat troops from Iraq and focus more on Afghanistan. The equipment returning with troops needs to be refurbished, Shapiro said.
