bonnieb@herald-mail.com CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - With the air hazy with tractor exhaust and smoke from the blacksmith shed, a parade of antique tractors wound its way Saturday along a dirt path through the woods of the Cumberland Valley Antique Engine and Machinery Association's 35-acre grounds. Some of the tractors taking part in the 22nd annual Steam and Gas Show took the slight hill in front of the blacksmith shop easily, while others strained and roared and a few stalled.

HANCOCK -- It all began with an idea that Charlie Hudson saw in a children's magazine: A Fourth of July bike parade.  Charlie is the son of Judy and Dennis Hudson, the owners of the C&O Bike Shop in Hancock. In a small town with limited resources that has been trying to weather a bad economy, the "simple things are the best," and that proved correct on the Fourth of July.  More than 20 children -- infants to 12 years old -- gathered in front of the bicycle shop in Hancock to decorate their bikes in red, white, and blue streamers, small American flags and flowers.

charlestown@herald-mail.com CHARLES TOWN, W.Va. - Holiday cheer won't be the only thing in the air during the annual Charles Town Christmas parade this year. How about a little revitalization discussion to go with your celebration?

The meeting will be held Dec. 4 at 10 a.m., just before the parade gets started around 11 a.m., Charles Town City Council member Matt Ward said.

SMITHSBURG - When Virginia Harshman was a child in the 1920s, she didn't take any of her toys for granted. "I think all my toys were special. I never got very many toys, but what I got was nice and I was taught to take care of them. And I didn't have any brothers or sisters to break them up," said Harshman, 88, who lived in Smithsburg for approximately 61 years. Harshman's toys, given to her on Christmas or her birthday, are part of the "Toys of Christmas Past" exhibit at Smithsburg Historical Society Museum during Smithsburg Home Town Christmas this Saturday.

BOONSBORO - It's been six years since the attacks that killed thousands of Americans, including hundreds of firefighters and rescue workers, but on Boonsboro's Main Street, the sidewalks were lined Tuesday with patriotic citizens eager to demonstrate that Sept. 11, 2001, is far from forgotten. They were there to watch the baton twirlers, cheerleaders and marching bands that made their way through town in the annual Sept. 11 remembrance parade, organized by First Hose Co. of Boonsboro, but also to keep the date from passing without some acknowledgment of its significance and assertion of the nation's resilience.
