When a creative opportunity presented itself, she was eager for the challenge. The daughter of James Resh, Martin has memories of her dad's popular Dual Highway eatery, Jim's Always.

WAYNESBORO, Pa. - Michael McIntyre was looking for a new profession after focusing on being a stay-at-home dad for two years, so he turned to a fairly new hobby - pottery. After taking a pottery class at Hagerstown Community College, McIntyre found he liked the craft and had a knack for it. "I pursued it slowly until I realized I could make some money out of it and enjoy it," said the 40-year-old Leitersburg-area resident. McIntyre will be one of about 14 potters at this weekend's third annual Cumberland Valley Pottery Festival at Renfrew Museum and Park in Waynesboro.

The exhibit opens Tuesday, April 10, and runs through June 1. The show features pottery by Pam and Ren Parziale and baskets by Anne Bowers. Their work, organizers said, will portray a theme of friendship.
