pepperb@herald-mail.com Whether a 31-year-old woman who was beaten, raped and sodomized by Kenneth Gene Hornbaker in April 2004 was a prostitute didn't matter to the Washington County Circuit judge who sentenced the Mercersburg, Pa., man to 20 years in state prison for the offense Monday. Washington County Circuit Judge W. Kennedy Boone III sentenced Hornbaker, 36, whose last known address was 25 Oregon St. in Mercersburg, to the maximum sentence allowed under Hornbaker's plea agreement for a December second-degree sex offense conviction.

For Mike Massey, billiard balls gyrate, jump in the air, spin around obstacles and dart yo-yo-like back to their master before they plop into pockets. Nothing was routine on Saturday when Massey brought his poolroom wizardry to Hagerstown Billiards & Cafe on Dual Highway. Massey - a top trick-shot artist often seen competing on ESPN - explained his techniques, played against challengers and, above all, put on a show. Wearing a wireless microphone, Massey showed how to arrange a clump of balls that, when hit, will send the 8-ball in the middle directly into a pocket.

It's that time of year again. The redbuds are flowering, the sun is warming the earth and the postal employees across this great land of ours are being driven out of their gourds by the deafening chirp of of baby chickens. (We have a basement full of baby chicks at the moment, and I am writing about them because when they are around it is difficult to focus on anything else.) It might come as a surprise to some people that baby chickens known as “peeps” are shipped through the U.S. Postal Service, and generally arrive at the P.O. loading dock at 4:30 in the morning before anyone has had any coffee, and the peeps are VERY LOUD (they don't call them peeps for no reason)
