WILLIAMSPORT - There was a hot time in the old town on Saturday. So hot, in fact, that the only vendor at the yearly Williamsport Days festival who was doing a really brisk business was selling ice cream. "We're doing pretty good," said Codi Trumpower, who was working the ice cream trailer for the Williamsport Volunteer Fire Co. "We didn't do as well last year; it was a lot cooler," Trumpower said. "We're doing a lot better today. " Still, many of the peddlers seemed undaunted.

Two employees of the Washington County Roads Department were injured in an accident Tuesday morning when their dump truck flipped over while they were salting slick spots on Ritchie Road. Dale Russell "Rusty" Bowser, 42, and Robert Allan Benner, 44, both of Smithsburg, were taken to Washington County Hospital shortly after the 9:24 a.m. accident. The men, both of whom were wearing seatbelts, were treated and released from the hospital, a spokesman said. Washington County Sheriff's Deputy Brian Smith said the truck, which was loaded with eight tons of sand, ran off the edge of the roadway and flipped over when it returned to the road.

On June 6, my family and I drove four hours to a cottage in Chincoteague Island, Va., which my mom rented from her friend. From there it was about a 10-minute drive to the beach on Assateague, Va. From the beach it's only a minute or so to the nature center. Then later we suffered an interminable drive back to the cottage to shower out the sand that had gotten where it wasn't welcome. My top five favorite things about going to Chincoteague and Assateague islands: 5. Seeing the famous ponies.

GREENCASTLE, Pa. - The Allison-Antrim Museum in Greencastle soon will have a completed brick walkway that will connect the museum to the parking lot and barn, thanks to Christopher Harbaugh's Eagle Scout project. Harbaugh began the project last Monday, with the help of volunteers from Greencastle-Antrim High School, his Scout troop and his father. By Thursday, most of the bricks for the walkway had been laid. "It's definitely a challenge," said Harbaugh, 16, who decided on this as his Eagle Scout project because his aunt, Bonnie Shockey, is the president of the museum.

waynesboro@herald-mail.com HANCOCK - Stephanie Vera, 13, and her friends came to the Hancock Winter Festival from Damascus, Md., an hour-and-45-minute drive, to build a sculpture in snow of their United Methodist church. When temperatures are too warm for snow, as they were Saturday in Hancock, one has to improvise. Organizers of the annual event, forced to hold their winter festival in springlike weather, trucked in white sand and urged the artists to do their best in the substitute medium.

By ANDREW SCHOTZ andrews@herald-mail.com Not everything was typical Saturday at Middletown's 19th Annual Heritage Weekend. The sand art was edible. The golf markers for sale were personalized. Faces and hair could be painted, for a price. Food vendors, musical groups, crafters and nonprofit groups set up at the Middletown fairgrounds, off Franklin Street, and hundreds of people came to check them out. Some rode on the shuttles - a hay-packed wagon pulled by a John Deere tractor or a trolley.

shappell@herald-mail.com FORT MYERS, Fla. - Steve Zaks bought a house on the shore of the Gulf of Mexico in April to get away from bad winter weather, among other reasons. On Sunday, the former Hagerstown resident and city Planning Commission member was hoping the house was still there after Hurricane Ivan ripped through his Pensacola Beach, Fla., neighborhood and left him seeking shelter hundreds of miles away. Zaks, who moved to Pensacola Beach after living in the county for about a decade, said he left his home Wednesday and has been unable to get back to assess damage caused by Ivan's wrath.

The ones who molded me, And cast me from my shell, The ones who have always loved me, And never failed to teach me well. On the highest precipice, Or in the lowest gorge, They are my guardian angels, Ever since I was born. Who else would carry my burdens, When I cannot? Who else would lead me to the light, When I am distraught? Who else would cherish me In the manner that they do? How would I manage without those two? Only they can fill my heart, With happiness - or take it away.
