CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - You'd think that people would have had enough of silly love songs. Whether they have or not is yet to be determined, but Chambersburg's Capitol Theatre obviously doesn't think so. At 8 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 14, the theater will welcome a performance of "Bright Lights! Broadway in Love," from Michael Herzlin Productions. The show will feature love songs from Broadway shows past and present. "My Funny Valentine," "My Heart Belongs to Daddy," "Old Fashioned Wedding" and "Heart" are a few songs that have been performed as part of the show and may be on the program this Valentine's Day. Broadway veterans Jane Brockman, Timothy Shew and Joseph Kolinski will be performing to piano accompaniment by music director Andrew Gerle.

For Kim Sigler of Knoxville, Tenn., Tracy Byrd is more than a country singer. He became a source of comfort when she lost her boyfriend in a car accident two years ago. Dave Sands, 47, was killed Memorial Day weekend 1997, the same day he got tickets to an upcoming Byrd concert at the Frederick County Fair. Byrd dedicated the song "The Keeper of the Stars" to him during his performance at the fair. "I didn't think anyone would take a stranger into his heart like that," said Sigler, 41, who has since met the singer and was back to see him Friday night at the Maryland Theatre.

BOONSBORO -- "She's More," "She Thinks She Needs Me," "You Won't Ever Be Lonely" ... Andy Griggs' most popular songs have been love songs, but he didn't set out to be pegged as a "love-song kind of guy. " "It's not that I'm thinking of that when I'm recording. That's usually what record labels end up releasing on me," Griggs said during a recent phone interview. "It is what it is. You certainly can't really 'get' my music and understand my standpoint if you only listen to the singles on the radio," said Griggs, who writes some of his songs.

Today's teens are, sadly, well-versed in lust, but lack an understanding of love To the editor: When I can look at a couple who have been married 40 years or more and instantly know they are still in love, I am delighted and deeply grateful for them - for all the sacrifices they've made, for all the forgiveness granted, all the patience exercised and all the "other-centeredness" it took to arrive where they are in life. It is no small accomplishment and their reward is obvious to me. The pleasure I find in observing these enduring relationships is countered by my concern for our teens and pre-teens.
