It might seem anti-Irish, but for many Americans the corned beef they will eat on Tuesday in celebration of St. Patrick's Day might have originated in Texas. And the cabbage might have come from California or New York, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture National Agricultural Statistics Service. But the real punch line is that corned beef and cabbage isn't a traditional Irish meal. It has become a traditional Irish-American meal to celebrate St. Patrick's Day. Father Doug Kenney, at St. Ann's Catholic Church in Hagerstown, said he asked about corned beef during his trips to Ireland.

On Saturday, Matt Koebel and Jared Henry put together simple kites for children using modern equivalents - plastic trash bags, dowel rods, masking tape and string. April is National Kite Month, but the last day of March brought families out to the Fairview Outdoor Education Center for its fourth annual Kite Festival.

kimy@herald-mail.com After two years of posing as the bait in prostitution stings for Hagerstown City Police, Officer Sue Lamb still gets embarrassed about what is said and done. Reciting the language the male suspects use in court makes her blush, she said. "I'm a conservative person," she said. On Friday evening, police teamed up to hold two simultaneous prostitution stings in the city which netted three arrests. Jon M. Adams, 37, of 4010 High Rock Road, Gibsonville, N.C., was charged with purchasing fake drugs and solicitation for prostitution.
