WILLIAMSPORT - Connected by their membership in Faith Christian Fellowship at 16726 Lappans Road, the Wolford and Horst families have bonded in a special way. You could say they are Locked in Love. "We have all attended for years and although we are growing, we are so much like family," Ginger Wolford said. A fund called the Isaiah Fund exists for donations for the family of young Isaiah Horst, who has been dealing with medical problems. Although a bone marrow transplant was successful so far, a permanent amount of nerve damage was done to Isaiah's legs and he is in a wheelchair.

Mackenzie Riford, 12, had her hair cut Friday, donating her long blond hair to Locks of Love, a nonprofit group that makes wigs for financially disadvantaged children who have lost their hair because of illness. The haircut took place at Blondy and Company on Opal Court in Hagerstown. Hairstylist Sharon Ricker did the honors, and saved a foot-long pony tail of Mackenzie's hair. The hair will be shipped off to the charity. Mackenzie said she heard about the organization more than a year ago, and waited until this year for her hair to be long enough to donate.
