I am hugely disappointed in Judge Wright for not thinking of this: "A federal judge," writes The Associated Press, "miffed at the inability of opposing attorneys to agree on even the slightest details of a lawsuit, ordered them to settle their latest dispute with a game of 'rock, paper, scissors.'" Ah, rock, paper, scissors. Is there any problem it can't solve? The AP continues, "The argument was over a location to take the sworn statement of a witness in an insurance lawsuit.

Skating basics Lori Shillingburg has been skating "forever. " Her family - grandparents, Ralph and Hazel Eld, then her mother, Barbara Eld Donaldson - has been operating Starland Roller Rink since 1946. "You have to relax," Shillingburg said. It's best to skate more than just once a year. There really is no age limit. If people who are older skated when they were younger, they will pick it back up, she said. She compared it to getting back on a bicycle. There are people who skated at Starland as kids, grew up, got busy and later are back to skate with their children.

Most of Pfeuffer's work is on black paper.

Going to a barbershop can be a real adventure. I still remember my first haircut as a young boy growing up in Dargan. My grandfather Reno would take me up the road to Mr. Jamison's house for a haircut. Mr. Jamison's barber tools were not always sharp. He seemed to pull some of the hairs from my head instead of cutting them with the scissors. He would not pay too much attention to the squirming or "ouches" I made in the chair. Mr. Jamison would then laugh as he announced he was now going to clean out my tater patch.

Week of Feb. 8, 1954 Clarence A. Lee, Funkstown insurance agent, came up with one for Ripley this week. Lee said he was stabbed by a sheep and has a limp to prove it. He said that while trimming the wool of one of his ewes the other day the rascal kicked out, knocking a sharp-pointed scissors from his hand. The point of the scissors pierced his right ankle, necessitating a trip to the hospital for first aid. Considering the size of Hagerstown, there are far more convictions for drunken driving here, based on the number of motor vehicle operators, than there are in Washington, D.C. Last year 80 motorists were convicted of drunken driving in Hagerstown, while a news report from Washington, D.C., said there were 87 convictions in that city.

GREENCASTLE, Pa. - Decades ago, kindergartners used metal scissors that bent paper and caused left-handers to fumble. The youngsters often grew frustrated, only to wind up with sweaty palms that dampened paper and made it impossible to cut. Today, they use scissors with plastic-coated handles that feature one opening specifically sized for the thumb and another for other fingers, thus eliminating confusion. The switch in scissors means that everybody can cut, teacher Nancy Henry said.

"I want to commend the ladies on the City Council for splitting up at the council meeting. That was a very adult act. For the most part, the council members are very dedicated and doing what I feel is right for the city. I think they're making leaps and bounds by conducting themselves semi-professionally. I'm 43, and I was born and raised here. It's not that I have anything against women in government. I applaud them, and I'm glad we have ladies in government. This isn't a war between men and women, but it has to do with your actions and the way you come across.
