katec@herald-mail.com WILLIAMSPORT - Last April, the C&O Canal Association sponsored a hike to celebrate the 50th anniversary of a 1954 walk along the canal. That hike a half a century ago was the result of U.S. Supreme Court Justice William O. Douglas' challenge to the writer of a Washington Post editorial that supported the creation of a parkway along the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal or its towpath. Douglas invited the editors to join him and experience the natural beauty of the wilderness path.

MARTINSBURG, W.Va. -- After losing last year by four-hundredths of second, Texas "Tex" Cobb needed little motivation Saturday in the Norwalk Soap Box Derby. "Just the one time I had a bad run, it happened to be (at the end)," the 11-year-old Charles Town, W.Va., boy said of his second-place finish last year. This year was going to be different. Only weeks removed from belting his first "out-of-the-park" home run in Little League and recently receiving four academic awards at Wright Denny Intermediate School, Cobb's mother, Katherine, sensed her son would avenge the stinging defeat.

Astronomically speaking, summer's end comes with the autumnal equinox on Sept. 22, but in many people's minds, it ends with the Labor Day weekend's last round of picnics and pool visits. Monday was still very summer-like, with the air muggy from a drenching Sunday night rain, mostly sunny skies and temperatures creeping to about 90 degrees in the early afternoon. “Good weather for pools. Bad weather for corn mazes,” said Clarence Horst, who was hosting both at Celebration Farm on Garden View Road near Hagerstown.
