Michael Hauver's Allegheny Blues Guitars guitar building and repair shop looks exactly as the shop of an artisan should look, cluttered with tools and rigs, guitars and guitar parts. And, it is located exactly where it should be located, on a side street off a county road on the edge of Shepherdstown, W.Va. However, Hauver is not just a guitar mechanic. He is a "luthier. " A luthier is, literally, a "lute maker. " But the term has become a general term for a maker of violins or other stringed instruments - in Hauver's case, guitars.

There are times when sports become nothing more than an anatomy lesson. It's easy to get wrapped up in the obvious parts of the games we watch and play. Someone wins and someone loses. Those results separate teams on a ladder called standings. And those teams standing on the top rungs of that ladder advance to the playoffs and play for championships. That is the measure of what is now known as the “body of work.” But in anatomy and athletics, the body is useless without heart.

“Tim Rowland’s column on Sunday, March 20, 2011, was outstanding. With the exception of one person, our delegation voted against the same-sex marriage bill. They missed a wonderful opportunity to give more people freedom. But instead, they chose to promote their own religious beliefs.” — Halfway “This is about Allegheny Power. This is the third month now that I’ve received an electric bill that is triple what it has been the 13 years that I have lived at the residence I’m at now, and everything is the same, and one month I wasn’t even there, and they try to claim it’s because it’s estimated.

HAGERSTOWN -- There are pros and cons to being the top seed in a bowling tournament contested in stepladder format. One of the pros is an automatic berth in the final, allowing the bowler to rest while the lower seeds work their way up the ladder. But with that rest comes two of the cons: The waiting and the watching of the other players. John Zikis admitted the wait was getting to him as he waited to see who he would face in the final game of the $50,000 Duckpin Olympics at Southside Bowl on Sunday afternoon.

If you're in southeast Asia, sleep in a bed big enough for only one person. According to the local culture, if you sleep in a bed with room for two, a ghost will sleep next to you. You always hear about bad luck signs - walking under a ladder, black cats crossing your path - but do they make sense? Where did they come from? And why? Of course, some bad-luck superstitions, such as the ghost in the bed, linger simply because they are part of a culture. When folklore is so deeply ingrained into a society, the belief will make sense - if only for the fact it has always been a given.
