waynesboro@herald-mail.com WAYNESBORO, Pa. - The Monster Corn Maze at Renfrew Museum and Park is still confusing those courageous enough to find their way through it. The maze, sponsored by the Renfrew Institute for Cultural and Environmental Studies, covers nearly 4 acres. Its paths run for more than a mile-and-a-half and take anywhere from 20 minutes to an hour and 20 minutes to work through, depending on one's sense of direction. Ellen Willis, her daughter, Megan Willis, 15, and her two friends, Allison Daywalt and Lee Ann Janes, both 15, came out of the maze with looks of relief.

So lonely, deep and desperate those eyes. I peered in them a time and was surprised To see inside my heart's future demise And noticed my own eyes; therein they lie. So open and distracting was that gaze; Determined to unsettle and amaze. No one can tell me this is just a phase. For eyes, my friend, create a soul-deep maze.

HAGERSTOWN -- It's a responsibility seldom seen in job descriptions of pastors, but one Paul Ostoich has assumed with gusto. For the second year, Ostoich -- an associate pastor of family ministries at Tri-State Fellowship on Cearfoss Pike -- planted, designed and cut the corn maze for the church's Pumpkin Siege, a fall festival in October. Ostoich said there was a steep learning curve when he created the maze for the first time last year. This year, with experience and more resources under his belt, it was easier, he said.

Every Halloween since 1978, demons, zombies and ghosts have provided scares for patrons who wander through the old Leitersburg Schoolhouse for the annual Haunted House. One of the ghosts this year is played by 17-year-old Christopher Brewer. "This is my fourth year doing the Leitersburg Haunted House," he said. "My cousin, Gene Snowberger, runs it, and four years ago, he asked me if I wanted to be part of it. It seemed like fun, so I agreed. " Christopher said creating a haunted house is a lot like putting on a stage play - actors wear costumes, makeup and rehearse their parts to get the action right.

It was tough work navigating the intricate paths and oversized corn stalks that towered over 8-year-old Sean Scott as he made his way through a dinosaur-themed corn maze Saturday. Sean, his 6-year-old brother Noah, aunt Holly Hallett and grandmother Becky Chilcote of Mercersburg worked up quite a sweat after getting lost in the maze for nearly an hour. As the family enjoyed refreshments, Chilcote said despite their misadventure the family was having a great time. “I think Sean and I got stuck in the belly of the dinosaur,” Chilcote said with a chuckle.

“Where are you?” Charlae Matthews called to her family. Surrounded by tall zig-zagging rows of corn stalks, the 12-year-old had lost sight of her parents and siblings. Just a few moments later, she discovered them a short but winding distance away. “I thought they were going the same way I was, but then they turned around,” Charlae said after they had all made their way back to a clearing. “She thinks she is Magellan,” her father, Larry Pitts, teased.

HAGERSTOWN -- Clarence Horst had land and figured he ought to do something worthwhile with it. "There are people in Hagerstown who have needs," he said. "I thought, why not take some of that land and start growing things for people. " So he grew potatoes at Celebration Farm and donated them to Food Resources Inc. of Hagerstown. But that was only the beginning. When he got the idea to open a corn maze to benefit the farm, he decided instead to carry the idea of benefiting nonprofits one step further.

There's a chill in the air, but is it just the autumn weather? Or is there a ghost lurking nearby?
