Many of our elders who have some memory of visiting a farm will likely have a special story or two about roosters. My own story involves those days when I was a kid and my grandmother would send me out to protect Mrs. Vi Johnson as she walked that path through the woods to my grandmother's house. I sometimes had to bust the rooster in his head with a broom to protect Mrs. Vi before she got to the porch. Most recently, my neighbor was preparing to go on vacation and he needed someone to feed his chickens.

o If you like reading Tim Rowland, you'll love watching him. See what else Tim has to say I have a rooster for sale. The asking price is $1,000, firm. All right, so as roosters go he isn't much to look at. No proud, imperial, feathered headdress of a rooster, he. He's small, with bandy legs and no comb to speak of. An Araucana (were he a hen, he'd be the type that lays blue eggs), he's all white with no tail and his attempts at crowing sound like a tractor-trailer with malfunctioning air brakes.

Real Men are fascinating. We will throw our own children up in the air, spin them 'round and 'round by the wrists like a carnival ride and dangle them off of second-story balconies - yet we will not get within 10 feet of the satellite dish with the riding lawnmower. Too much bad stuff could happen. Kids are resilient, whereas one little bump of the dish could unleash terrors best not contemplated, especially on a ball night. So it is with this in mind that I salute the Real Men who were comfortable enough with their manhood to be seen over the weekend at the Maryland Poultry Swap in Sharpsburg.

What's up with tattoos? To the editor: At the risk of angering or upsetting a number of folks, I¿ve been compelled for some time to share thoughts on the tattoo craze.  I will put aside the religious taboo side of it, as well as the health aspects that at one time was a major and legitimate concern. I will admit up front that I am fascinated by the phenomenon and the psyche of those who get tattoos. I have even found myself listening to their personal stories on shows like “Miami Ink” and ¿L.A.

o If you like reading Tim Rowland, you'll love watching him. See what else Tim has to say When I was a kid, the chickens we raised for meat were not "slaughtered. " They were "dressed. " Or "processed. " The difference might have been lost on a chicken, but it made us feel better. Why say that you are going to scald, pluck, gut, eviscerate or disembowel a chicken when you can simply say that you are going to "put it in the freezer?" The terminology comes into play because we bought a run of 15 araucana chickens last summer, figuring on about half hens, half roosters.

Call me patriotic if you must, but I was front and center to commemorate the anniversary of 9/11. Sept. 11, a day that will live on in the memories of people who truly love America. A date important to those who cherish our freedoms, understand what it is to sacrifice and who realize that dreams arise out of desperation. Yes, who can forget Sept. 11, 1814: The Battle of Plattsburgh, the turning point of the War of 1812, and the last time a foreign enemy seriously threatened American soil.

chambersburg@herald-mail.com CHAMBERSBURG, PA. - Rooster tails of ice chips flew off an electric chain saw as Mark Mastrangelo dug away at a ton and a half of ice on Memorial Square Thursday night to form a rearing elephant. "I'm warm, but I'm wet," Mastrangelo said as he took a break from sculpting on a balmy February evening with temperatures in the mid-40s. "Although it's warm for the ice, it's good for the crowd," he said. As the elephant took form, couples, families and groups of people would stop and watch for a few minutes before moving on to see another stack of 300-pound blocks transformed.
