Evans, a staff member at the center, held the auger drill steady while Tanner Minnick, 7, of Smithsburg, turned the handle. Tanner was drilling a small hole into a trunk, which simulated a maple tree. He later would insert a "spile," which is a stubby wooden straw that would permit the sap to flow through the tree and into a bucket.

Tim Rowland is on vacation. His column will return when he does. The following column was published in The Daily Mail on Oct. 28, 1998: I was looking over the County Commissioners' budget and have become altogether convinced they are spending too much for lawyers, too much on the needy and too much for fox scalps. And if they don't get a handle on that blacksmith department, it will be the death of us. Perhaps I should mention in passing that the budget in question was for the year 1860 and that, printed in total, the entire document came to little more than half a newspaper page.

They are elements of "Captain Canada and Copper Boy Boomsday," the dessert theater being produced by the Smithsburg High School drama club and written by two students. "It's about two bumbling superheroes just trying to pay their rent," senior Kyle Raios said. Kyle, 17, co-wrote the play this summer with Joe Waeyaert, also 17.
