CHAMBERSBURG, PA. As they walked off the buses onto a red carpet, the eyes of the men and women of the 324th Military Police Battalion searched the cheering, flag-waving, sign-holding crowd, looking for someone to hug - wives, husbands, children, parents, girlfriends. Family members gathered outside the Frank M. Parker U.S. Army Reserve Center, edged forward, some pushing strollers or carrying infants, to greet the soldiers on their return from more than a year in Iraq. "She's almost done," said Sgt. Cole Baker of Fayetteville, Pa., as his 8-month-old daughter, Hailey, was finishing a bottle of formula.

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Robert Byrd, the longest serving senator in history, returned to the chamber Tuesday after being absent for more than two months due to illness. The 91-year-old West Virginia Democrat, in a now-familiar wheelchair, cast his first vote since May on an amendment to a key defense policy bill. Byrd was first elected to the Senate in 1958, and in 2006 was re-elected for a record ninth six-year term. Last November he stepped down as chairman of the Senate Appropriations Committee, but he remains the Senate's president pro tempore, a largely symbolic post reserved for the longest-serving member of the Senate's majority party.

Gypsy moth populations have rebounded in Washington County and the surrounding areas over the last two years, and defoliation levels by the voracious leaf-eater are expected to increase substantially this year, a local official said. To help combat the destructive pest, the Washington County Forestry Board is coordinating a cooperative spray program for local landowners, board member Therese Keegan said. The board, a nonprofit citizens group devoted to promoting education and assistance in the sound use and conservation of forest resources, is planning to "contract with an aerial insecticide applicator at a rate much lower than what most individual landowners would be able to," Keegan said.

keller@herald-mail.com SHEPHERDSTOWN, W.Va. - The Shepherd men's basketball team just might have found the third scoring option it's been lacking this season. Chad Myers came off the bench to go 13-for-15 from the field Saturday - including 6 of 8 from 3-point range - and finished with 34 points as the Rams spoiled the return of Hood College coach Tom Dickman to his alma mater by beating the Blazers 95-71 at the Butcher Athletic Center. "A lot of people might have been surprised by Chad's shooting today, but we weren't," Shepherd coach Ken Tyler said.
