Two weeks ago, Ruth Anne and I returned from a trip to Texas, where we visited our son, his wife and two of our grandchildren. Like your children and grandchildren, they are our future. As you might have figured, based upon my recent column, we passed through Oklahoma City (we were there to see a couple of softball games at the Women's College World Series) and visited the Oklahoma City National Memorial at the site of the demolished Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building. I was deeply moved by the visit to the memorial, moved nearly as much as I was when Ruth Anne and I visited “ground zero” about a month after the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

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.

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.

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.

The Chambersburg Borough Council on Monday delayed its vote on land development plans to expand the Franklin County (Pa.) Courthouse complex and make it more secure. Councilwoman Sharon Bigler asked for an artist's rendering of the project, prompting the matter to be tabled for a couple of weeks. County Administrator John Hart described the courthouse plans to the council, which was asked to vote on a new sally port entrance for sheriff's vehicles, a new entrance for a Second Street property and the removal of several parking spaces on U.S. 30. The county commissioners plan to spend about $2 million on renovating and expanding the courthouse complex.
