People traveled hundreds of miles to wish Robert A. Krempels a happy 90th birthday. His former students from the Pennsylvania college he used to teach at attended. Even former parishioners from churches in New Jersey and Massachusetts were there. The Krempels family had always made much of birthdays. But this year, Bob Krempels decided he wanted to do something different. To him, it only seemed fitting that he make music with his family. Krempels held a piano recital at LifeHouse Church Bethel in Hagerstown on May 13. Music has served as an outlet ever since Krempels was a child.

" Children put together the makeshift instruments as part of a preconcert event at the Hagerstown branch of Washington County Free Library before heading over to the orchestra's Beethoven-themed family concert at The Maryland Theatre.

HAGERSTOWN - At times, the best option is getting up at 4 a.m. to do schoolwork. "I have to if I want time to practice," said Justin Furnia, a 17-year-old violinist and pianist. In order to have time to play the instruments after school, Justin said he often has no choice but to finish his schoolwork early in the morning. But Justin said he welcomed two diversions from his crammed schedule: the moment the bow touches the strings on his violin and the second his fingers strike the piano keys.

His name is Fred and his plumbing strikes me as a work of art. I've called others over the years out of curiosity. They have tried to persuade me to remodel my bathroom over a simple drain issue and they wanted to charge me literally twice as much to unclog a drain.  Fred would never. He is an old-fashioned, no-nonsense kind of guy - honest, whip-smart and efficient. It's fascinating to watch as he considers a situation and makes his plan of action. One recent Sunday night, my husband went to change the filter in our water purifier when he abruptly announced that we had no water.
