Isn't it interesting how headlines can grab your attention and draw you into a story? Yeah, well, that's what journalists do best. We want you to read what we write, so we have to make it enticing. Recently an online headline caught my eye. It boldly proclaimed to offer information about "Ten gadgets that help your love life. " I printed the article (for journalistic research purposes only, of course), left my computer for a few minutes and started another load of laundry.

Linda Murray | Around West Hagerstown | February 13, 2013
Thursday is Valentine's Day. And yes, my thoughts of love are of my family and friends, but I must confess that I also love reading The Herald-Mail newspaper. Every morning, I start my day with a big mug of coffee and The Herald Mail. I even get up on work mornings an hour early just so I have time to enjoy it. Once I get to work, I see the benefits of the Newspapers in Education Program. The Herald-Mail donates newspapers every week to schools in the county, which are great teaching tools for educators.

It's the musical parodies that get the audience laughing and clapping - songs like the golden oldie “My Guy” that becomes “My Thighs.”   But it's the self-deprecating jokes about hot flashes, sleepless nights, weight gain and Jekyll-and-Hyde personality changes that create a bonding experience among the audience and cast members.   Add sassy dialogue, handsome staging and funny scenes like a bra fight at a lingerie sale and you have a comedic piece of theatre known as “Menopause The Musical.” Since its debut in 2001, the play has been a mini-juggernaut, entertaining sell-out crowds in more than 250 American cities and 14 countries.

Valentine's Day is a waste of a holiday; it serves no purpose other than to create more chaos in life. First off, assuming one has "somebody" to spend it with, one is obligated to buy flowers and candy, treating the other with more affection than usual. Not only is this a waste of money but also a waste of time. People spend days if not weeks trying to think of what their boyfriend or girlfriend would enjoy. Not to mention that the boyfriend or girlfriend might not even like what he or she are given.

Does it help to throw a rotisserie chicken at a hurting person? It's a long-standing debate in my house. I contend the answer is yes. By "throw," I do not mean to chuck an aggrieved person between the eyes with a bird. Though it arguably might get her mind off things for a while. I'm speaking figuratively, of course, as in arriving at the home of one who is demoralized and carefully placing the poultry on the counter or kitchen table. And it must be accompanied with a sincere side of "Tell me what you need.

For 15 years, Tori Anderson's lilting voice rang through the region, as Tori Anderson & The Possum Holler Band became a staple on the Quad-State bluegrass scene. Country music fans also know her as the cheerful and witty daytime personality on WAYZ radio in Greencastle, Pa. What her fans might not know is what a struggle it can be for her to so much as rise from bed and make the morning commute from her Hancock home to the station. It becomes a test of wills: Tori on one side, scleroderma on the other.

Shon Duty knows what it feels like to go back to school wearing last year's tattered sneakers held together with a prayer and some Shoe Goo. “I grew up a kid in California in a poor family,” Duty said on Wednesday. “I can remember going back to school with shoes that were from last year that either didn't quite fit or had holes in them,” he said. But times have changed for Duty as he and his wife, Tammy, are Waynesboro business owners who want to make a difference.

Corey Clopein died doing what he loved - fishing for bass in the Conococheague Creek not far from his Shinham Road home. Corey's father, James Clopein, said Friday afternoon that he believed his 25-year-old son slipped on a rock and drowned in the creek near the Fairview Road bridge. “He fished there the day before, too,” James Clopein said. “He liked to fish for bass. He liked anything that would get on his hook .... It was just a tragic accident.” Corey Clopein's body was found Thursday in shin-deep water, according to the Washington County Sheriff's Office.

When Bob Wantz toured Shepherd College in 1951 as a high school senior, his interest was only in getting a day off from school. Instead, the visit opened his eyes to a world of opportunities and a lifelong commitment to the university. “I loved the school from the first day I was there,” Wantz said. Everything clicked for that visit. Wantz remembers it was a beautiful sunny day and the school choir sang “The White Cliffs of Dover” in front of Reynolds Hall. The tour included 15- to 20-minute visits to different classes and ended with a Rams baseball game.

The crowd lining South Potomac Street in Hagerstown grew anxious Friday night awaiting the first of a series of bike races to begin the three-day Tour of Washington County. Rhythmically pounding on the metal gates that separated them from a .0.8-mile course through downtown streets, the spectators produced a sound that would soon not be heeded by the cyclists in the women's open race. At least according to the cyclists. “Some people say it's like tunnel vision - I guess that's the best way to describe it,” said cyclist Rik Lee, noting the focus a race requires that causes a rider's surroundings to fade away.
