The road is broken and dusty, a mere shadow of its former relevance. Travel its original path and in some places you can still see the history. In a few places, in small towns such as Van Wert, Ohio, or Columbia City, Ind., there are still signposts and markers, reminders erected as monuments by those who still care. The Lincoln Highway, America's first "transcontinental" highway, once stretched from sea to shining sea. Today, it's in shambles, overgrown by weeds and underused after six-lane highways and passenger planes became the preferred mode of long-distance travel.

andrear@herald-mail.com WILLIAMSPORT - A group of Williamsport residents who last year opposed the Bowman Group's proposed truck stop near town spoke out this week against Bowman's trailer storage yard and sea container facility on adjacent property. Large storage trailers and rust-colored sea containers - movable, stackable storage units transported by land and sea - now occupy a portion of the 65-acre property at 15935 Spielman Road just south of Williamsport. The residents said they fear the "unsightly" storage area will spread to more visible, adjacent properties also owned by Donald Bowman, who had proposed a truck stop on about nine acres fronting the storage yard and a motel and restaurant on about five acres he owns across the street.

Lavinia Reid is taking the classic tale “The Little Mermaid” to new heights - or depths - in her innovative ballet adaptation of the beloved under-the-sea tale.   Reid said she sees the production as a way to marry the whimsical Disney film version to the 1837 Hans Christian Andersen original fairy tale, which ends with the Little Mermaid desperately throwing herself into the sea after the prince she's in love with marries the princess. Reid's rendition, however, ends with the prince marrying the Little Mermaid.    “We bring the real story, the full story, but give it a happy ending,” Reid said Friday.

A cluster of “sea containers” recently placed at a storage business near the corner of Virginia Avenue and Massey Boulevard prompted a reader to inquire about it earlier this month. Do the storage containers violate any Washington County zoning or building codes? Concerned that more containers could be stacked there, making it look like the “Port of Baltimore,” the reader argued in his May 8 email to The Herald-Mail that he believes the Washington County zoning ordinance permits single-story buildings to be used for storage, but not sea containers.

When the news came that Rachel Maddow had written a book based upon a long study of our wars and the consequences, there was little delay in the purchase and reading. Those who have watched her display of talents, energy, brilliance and grasp of world events will recognize her gifts as a writer in “Drift.” The subtitle, “The Unmooring of American Military Power,” suggests the tone of her well-documented story. What follows is a chronological unveiling of the expansion of our armed forces from a citizen army to a mammoth military complex with units and equipment scattered over the globe.
