Thumbs up, thumbs down 4/1 To Dorothy Truax, a 79-year-old Big Pool resident who taught school for 37 years and now volunteers 15 to 20 hours a week at Clear Spring Elementary School. Devotion like this is rare indeed. To Bob Fleenor, the Herald-Mail copy editor whose encyclopedic grasp of a ton of facts about a host of subjects, including history, geography and literature has won him thousands of dollars on Jeopardy, the popular TV game show. We're impressed.

The Salvation Army has been a part of the lives of Robert and Georgia Henderson from the time they were children. Their parents ran Salvation Army facilities throughout the country, and the two grew up seeing how the organization works from the inside. Maj. Robert Henderson remembers his father's stints in New York City and Atlanta. His wife, Georgia Henderson, grew up in cities throughout the Southwest, including Oklahoma and Mexico City. "I can't hardly call one city my hometown," said Robert Henderson, who with his wife took over the The Hagerstown Corps of the Salvation Army last June.

MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - Out of 350,000 people serving in the National Guard, Spc. Erik Nowak was the best. He's hauled 35 pounds of equipment on his back over 10 miles of road and was loaded down with 70 pounds of gear on another nearly six-mile hike. The Bunker Hill, W.Va., man also had to excel in combat water survival, weapons training and complete tasks with minimal sleep. Nowak, 27, competed in a nationwide National Guard competition earlier this year and his proficiency was enough to get him selected as the 2007 U.S. Army National Guard Soldier of the Year.

kristinw@herald-mail.com More than anything, acoustic guitarist Edgar Cruz wants audiences to enjoy his music. With that goal in mind he's developed a niche - taking music that people like and finding a way to play it on the guitar. His quest to entertain audiences with his one-man acoustic guitar show has led him to transpose hundreds of popular songs not typically heard on a lone guitar. Perhaps his most noteworthy feat is performing Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody" on his six guitar strings.
