bonnieb@herald-mail.com ROUZERVILLE, PA. Faced with both a Lowe's home improvement center and a Wal-Mart coming into their small community, Rouzerville business owners are celebrating. That spirit took tangible form with the first Rouzerfest held Saturday at Red Run Park. "We're very excited," said Ann Backer, co-owner of Blondie's in Rouzerville. "We're letting people know we're not just 'east of Waynesboro.' We're Rouzerville. Lowe's and Wal-Mart will help put us on the map. That's why we started the Rouzerville Business Association.

WAYNESBORO, Pa. -- Laughter heartily mixed with ooohhhs and ahhhs when illusionist Jason Bishop took the stage Sunday afternoon at Hooverville Elementary School. Bishop played well to the crowd of 170 children who enjoyed the performance free of charge thanks to sponsorship by the Rouzerville (Pa.) Lions Club. It was the third year the Lions brought a magic act to the elementary school. Next year it is planning for a circus.

ROUZERVILLE, Pa. -- Donna Rook thought about her mother's Sunday cooking and the eight children raised in her home as wrecking equipment tore into the house at the intersection of Beartown and Mentzer Gap roads on Monday. She described her emotion as "happy sad" because the loss was coupled with knowledge that a safer, more comfortable house will soon replace it. Volunteers from area churches will descend on the property in coming weeks to build a 24-by-36-foot house for Rook.
