FAYETTEVILLE, PA. After a day of Native American headdress making, teepee building, face painting, magic show watching, corn grinding, stage acting, theater touring and cultural learning, the only thing 9-year-old Nathan Haugh of Waynesboro, Pa., could think to make the 2008 Totem Pole Playhouse Family Fun Fest even better was a roller coaster.

HALFWAY - The bells are ringing and not just for "me and my gal. " The Salvation Army launched its holiday kettle drive Monday at Valley Mall with inspirational words and music, and a $1,000 check presented by William M. Breichner, representing the Kiwanis Club of Hagerstown. "Now we only need $109,000 to reach our kettle goal," said Ward Childerston, a member of the agency's advisory board.
