Not long ago, Trevor Coblentz was a healthy toddler. A tick bite, however, changed all of that. The Cascade 3-year-old developed Rocky Mountain spotted fever, then spinal meningitis and spent May to July as a patient at Hershey (Pa.) Medical Center. He is the son of Terry and Michelle Coblentz. Trevor is fighting a brain injury as a result of the infections, Michelle Coblentz said. The staff at A Cut Above Hair Design Inc. in Boonsboro wants to help Trevor and his family by purchasing needed medical equipment and care through a fundraiser on Sunday, Nov. 15. The salon will be providing haircut services, with 100 percent of the proceeds, including tips, to be donated to this cause.

By ELLEN LYON Staff Writer For Dr. Gerald Falke, a monthly manicure is a pat on the hands for a job well done. "It's sort of like pampering my hands. I figure a lot of people look at my hands because what I do is sort of a hands-on profession," said Falke, a Hagerstown podiatrist. "I think people should be kind to themselves. I consider it showing my gratitude to my hands for providing me with a good living," he said. Falke, 59, is one of a growing number of Tri-State area men who are taking advantage of services to improve their appearance - such as hair coloring, manicures and pedicures - that used to draw only women customers.

shappell@herald-mail.com A nervous Terry Renner paced in a hot parking lot Tuesday awaiting the arrival of his half-sister. The meeting was not an ordinary one because Renner and Mary Winger, both adoptees, had never met in person and had spoken for the first time by phone Monday evening. They did not find each other through conventional search means, but through two area tanning salons. Renner, 47, and Winger, 44, were all smiles as they embraced inside the What A Tan salon on Railway Lane.

It's nighttime on the fabled Outer Banks of North Carolina and a stretch of road from Frisco to Hatteras is swathed in darkness. A few yards from the asphalt are sea oats, sand dunes and half-buried wood-and-wire fences. But in these late hours, nothing is visible. During the day, soft clouds burn pink above the water and, in certain spots, wild mustangs graze on sea grass. This narrow band of sand known as the Outer Banks is a place of serenity and natural beauty - the kind of setting that beckons artists and photographers.
