At the end of the red carpet, behind the step-and-repeat banner where celebrities pose for photo-ops, stood the three filmmakers. Hands in pockets, a calmness in their expressions, one of the filmmakers turned to his right and asked who was the man in the jacket who stepped from the limousine earlier, walked the red carpet and posed for pictures before the banner. "That was Ron Maxwell, the director of 'Gods and Generals,'" said Tom Riford, president and chief executive officer of the Hagerstown-Washington County Convention and Visitors Bureau.

The festival will run from Thursday, Oct. 13, to Sunday, Oct. 16. Hagerstown, you say? Why not? asks Tracie Donahue. "There are small towns across the world that have film festivals," she said.

When Burma Miles performed with The Baltimore Symphony some years ago, she might not have thought one of the highlights of her music career would be participating in a small-town variety show. But today it ranks near the top. What could be more fun than a little singing, a little dancing and some comedic skits? she asks. And it's all for a good cause. For the past 17 years, Miles has directed the Clear Spring Lions Club's annual minstrel and variety show. It's been a rewarding job,  the musician said, made easier by "a wonderful group of people who volunteer their time and work hard to raise money for their community.

katec@herald-mail.com Dawn Lucas is looking forward to her Clear Spring High School senior prom at the Venice Inn. She's planned carefully. Her mom, a hairdresser, will do her hair. She works at a shoe store and her discount will save her money on the shoes she'll buy. How would she feel if someone showed up in the same dress as the one she's wearing? She didn't think that was too likely to happen since she ordered her gown online. She said she'd be shocked at first if another girl was wearing an identical gown, but she'd try to make the best of the situation and probably would just laugh.

"I'm wondering if anyone else has a problem with call waiting. You call someone and they'll say 'Got another call coming in, can you hold,' like you're not important. And they never do hardly come back on ... they let you hold and hold. Thanks. " "I see where there's going to be another place close to the Barbara Ingram School where even though they do not have a liquor license, people can bring in their own drinks. I would think with the school there, the city would do everything in their power to prevent more alcohol in this block of South Potomac Street.
