marlob@herald-mail.com WILLIAMSPORT - For Harry Knode, the banquet held Thursday to mark his 50 years at the G.A. Miller Lumber Co. was pleasant enough, but the veteran employee and former owner seemed a little uncomfortable with all the fuss. "I'm going to keep going, you know," Knode told the gathering of about two dozen family members, friends and co-workers. "This is just a one-day interruption of my daily work schedule. " After a catered meal in the lumber warehouse and a presentation by Williamsport Mayor John Slayman, many of those attending went back to work.

HAGERSTOWN -- Of the dozens of homes along Lanvale Street, one stands out from the crowd - not because of its design or color scheme but because it is being built with the help of popsicle sticks. The structure is a Washington County Habitat for Humanity Faith House, a project of the area's faith community. Congregations have provided skilled labor and other forms of volunteering. But when it came to raising money for construction needs, a unique fund drive was conceived. Known as Lumber for the Lord, local churches sold two-by-fours for $2.50 each and raised about $1,700 for the new house.

Fire broke out in a lumber-drying kiln along Clear Spring road between Clear Spring and Williamsport Sunday night.  Flames shot high in the air before fire crews could get water on the structure at 14255 Clear Spring Road (Md. 68) at about 10 p.m.  The owner of the property, Carl Eby, said he used the kiln to dry wood for lumber companies.  Eby, who was at a church service when he was told about the blaze, said he does not know what caused the fire.   Large plumes of steam started to rise off the building at about 10:18 p.m. when water started to soak into the structure.

I'm not one to do a corporation's advertising for it, but I can only sit back and marvel at the genius behind Stanley Hand Tools' new FatMax Xtreme FuBar Utility Bar. Well, maybe it's new, maybe it's been around a bit, but I first saw the advertisement for one this weekend during, obviously, a football game. The FatMax Xtreme is billed as a demolition tool. As a guy, they had me at "demolition. " The television commercial shows a rather geeky chap being handed a FatMax, which he uses to basically tear the living snot out of a shed that is, for some reason, suspended by a crane.
