This weekend, a whirlwind of toe-tapping music will descend upon the Springfield Farm Barn. Country, bluegrass and indie-folk artists will take the stage during the first River City BarnFest. There will even be some “quirky, Southern boy-type of music,” said Tearza Knode, event organizer. The River City BarnFest will be held Friday, July 1, through Sunday, July 3, at the Springfield Farm Barn in Williamsport. The event kicks off Friday evening at 5 p.m. with the Davisson Brothers band, a group that played at last year’s Fourth of July celebration in Williamsport, said Knode.

WASHINGTON COUNTY - At the core of a daylong music festival near Hagerstown on Saturday was Matt Bellon's push to help his partially paralyzed brother, Cole, get a van.

Myers scooped up a spoonful of vegetarian chili only to be hit with a mouthful of heat. "I wasn't expecting that," she said, trying to douse the fire with a glass of water. "It looked mild.

Acres of cornfields surround the farmhouse of Winston and Susan Herbst on Old Forge Road. But for the past seven years, the Hagerstown couple has been trying to plant a more meaningful seed - a place where young people can feel loved and inspired. They have taken their country property and turned it into a social and spiritual retreat for area youths called Right Choice Ministries. Each week, Susan Herbst said, they provide opportunities for Christian fellowship through games, life-skills programs, discussion groups and counseling activities.
