It happens about five times a year. Best-selling author Nora Roberts gets together with other writers and has a book signing at Turn the Page Bookstore, the Boonsboro shop operated by her husband, Bruce Wilder. People come from miles away, beginning to line up as early as 7 a.m. for a two-hour signing later in the day.

marlob@herald-mail.com BOONSBORO - Last summer, Shirley Metz was looking for a way to combine her love of the culinary arts with a desire to do whatever she could to make a new Boonsboro library a reality. As a member of Friends for a New Boonsboro Library, Metz suggested the group compile a cookbook of recipes contributed by area residents and restaurants. The idea was a hit, and after a lot of work by a lot of people the cookbook is nearly ready for sale. "There will be about 300 recipes in the hardcover book," said Christine Hawkins, Boonsboro librarian.

The subject matter was a far cry from the romantic and mysterious fare she pens. Still, Keedysville novelist Nora Roberts was in familiar territory reading a story from Norman Bridwell's Clifford the Big Red Dog series to a baker's dozen of twitching tykes Tuesday morning during the Project Head Start book fair at the center on West North Avenue in Hagerstown.

BOONSBORO -- Even Katie Wennick's mother, Linda, wasn't allowed to read the short story that won a $30,000 scholarship from romance writer Nora Roberts' foundation.

"It has more me in it than I wanted to (have)," Wennick said, "and that kind of made it more private. " She said she's thrilled to get affirmation from Roberts, a world-famous author who lives in Keedysville, and plans to go to Roberts' next book signing.

Dogs and owners deserve a chance on Santa's lap To the editor: This is in response to Nora Roberts' letter to the editor, dated Dec. 28. I am so very sorry that you chose not to have your granddaughter's photo taken with Santa when you visited the Valley Mall. I would like to point out that Roberts, her son and daughter-in-law were the ones that mistakenly brought the child at the incorrect time. The pet owners were the ones who obviously read the advertisements on the back of The Herald-Mail, which clearly stated the times and dates of the pet photos with Santa Claus.

“West Virginia or elsewhere, people selling dope, driving a second time drunk, speeding from the police: Have a hard-labor camp, Quonset huts, one pot-bellied stove, double bed racks, 6-to-10-hour days, working days, of picking up trash, or anyone that needs help. It would ease the prison problem. Don't like the labor camp, then send them to prison.” - Charles Town, W.Va.   “Probably our second biggest ally in the Middle East is Egypt. Of course, Israel is No. 1. And where's our president at?
