I recognized the problem and took the step myself. " The name and location of the facility weren't disclosed.

Scientists say you can tell a lot about a county by examining its rubbish. For example, people who excavate landfills (and folks worry that this nation has a shortage of professions) say the richer the community, the more of the asparagus stalk they snap off and throw away. I wonder about this, since I never see a lot of people paying with an Independence Card who are buying asparagus in the first place. Usually the closest they get to a green vegetable is lime Jello.

Big Sydney Games - I like that sound It's tough not to get a swelled head when you hear your name so much on television. Just ask Tiger Woods. Well, move over Tiger. There's a new big-headed man on the scene. And his name is Sydney. That's right. Sydney. You've surely been hearing that name all over the dial (although you young-un's may not know what I mean by dial). Yep, the Summer Olympics have come to my town, the city they named after me. Didn't know that?

kevinc@herald-mail.com Chef Henry Haller was at work early on Aug. 9, 1974. It was 7:30 a.m., and as he entered his kitchen a middle-aged man turned from another conversation and approached. Dressed in pajamas and bare feet, the weight of the world on his shoulders, the man approached Haller, who greeted his employer. "Chef, I've been eating all over the world," Haller recalls President Richard M. Nixon saying. "And your food was the best. " Nearly 30 years later, Haller is still slightly taken with how Nixon, about to leave the White House in shame, could make a point of complimenting his chef on a job well done.

It had to come down to it sooner or later, and last week I had a rather unpleasant conversation with Mayor Bob Bruchey. Actually, all the unpleasantness took place on my side of the net. "Look," I hissed. "Fifteen months now you've been in office and you've given me nothing. No material whatsoever. No missing whirlpools, no minorities arrested in the streetcorner, no scenes with County Commissioners in the middle of a Chamber of Commerce forum, no Tonight Show appearances - nothing.

By Anne Chovey Special to The Herald-Mail Windy Hill Restaurant sits on the hill outside of Clear Spring, just off Interstate 70. I had passed it many times, but never gone in until my friend, Kay Sedea, and I stopped for lunch recently. The restaurant, which has been open since 1976, sits in a brick building with ample parking across the front. We entered a small room with about eight tables and a bar along one side. It reminded me of the small independently owned family restaurants I used to go as a child: the type of place that has almost disappeared from the dining scene.

Commentary How can anyone take America seriously when the names of three of our biggest corporations are Google, Yahoo and eBay? How can we hope to promote democracy worldwide when our biggest presidential debate of the season is held on something called "YouTube?" Remember the good old days when Americans could make fun of Asian names such as Hoo Flung Poo? Remember the eighth-grade joke about the Chinese word for constipation being "hung chow?" And the Australians were always good for a few laughs.
