HAGERSTOWN - What ingredients go into a great bowl of chili are a matter of individual taste, but the fiery concoctions served up Saturday at Municipal Stadium were varied enough to satisfy any palate, and went down a little easier with a dollop of rock music and a cup of cold beer. The third annual Hagerstown Suns Chili Cook-Off & Music Festival drew hundreds of chili aficionados and music fans to test the recipes of 27 teams vying for the $1,000 top prize, Hagerstown Suns General Manager Will Smith said.

WILLIAMSPORT - More than 5,000 people turned out at Byron Memorial Park Saturday for the 6th annual Harvest Hoedown to raise money and food for the Williamsport Food Bank. The Williamsport Ministerium, which organized the event, hoped to bring in 5,000 pounds of donated food and $12,000 from games, food, a yard sale and a silent auction. Organizers topped the food goal - and last year's collected amount - by more than 3,000 pounds. The Rev. Greg Martin, chairman, estimated the event would bring in close to last year's total of $10,000 in cash.

Editor's note: Each Sunday, The Herald-Mail publishes "A Life Remembered. " This continuing series takes a look back -- through the eyes of family, friends, co-workers and others -- at a member of the community who died recently. Today's "A Life Remembered" is about Waunita "Neet" Shupp, who died Jan. 8 at the age of 80. Her obituary was published in the Jan. 9 edition of The Herald-Mail. In a scene reminiscent of "The Waltons," the four children of Waunita and John Summer Shupp said they used to holler good night to each other and their parents through the walls of their bedrooms.
