Holiday week So here we sit, right smack dab in the middle of the Christmas holiday and the new year. No school for the children, of course, and I am sure they have plenty to keep them occupied. The refrigerator is still overflowing with holiday leftovers and the tables are still laden with cookies, cakes and pies so much that it would probably be best to start freezing some of it. Indoor flea market This is one of those weeks that not much is happening in the area, with schools closed and service clubs taking a breather.

Lt. Col. Joseph Gardenhour talked Sunday about being separated from his family during his time in theU.S. Air Force, including being away from his son for eight months after the boy was born. Gardenhour also talked about his wife being separated from both of their children during her time in the U.S. Air Force, and said the scenario is common among military members. Gardenhour, a Smithsburg High School graduate, said repeated deployments for military members in recent years have been stressful for the individuals involved, but he feels confident that the military is meeting their needs.

HALFWAY - A new Valley Mall policy that restricts when nonprofit organizations can hold fund-raisers there has at least one organization concerned that donation drives will suffer. Mall officials decided this month that groups could, with a few exceptions, hold events in the mall on only two weekends a year, one in September, the other in May. During those weekends, the mall will host Pillars of the Community fairs for service clubs. At other designated times during the year, health groups and organizations such as The American Red Cross will be permitted to hold fund-raisers.

This year, enjoy the gift of service to others To the editor: Give yourself a gift this year. Slow down and allow yourself to enjoy the gift of service to others. The cost is small, but the rewards are priceless. It will cost you some time, a loving heart, a listening ear, a gentle touch, willing hands and a desire to make this world a better place. We live in a world where the success of Christmas is measured by the sound of a clanging cash register. Money spent on gifts that will be welcomed with great anticipation and excitement, only to be forgotten and replaced by a desire for something new. By giving of ourselves in service to others without expecting payment in return, we find joy and contentment in knowing that we have touched lives and formed memories that will last a lifetime.

It may seem a bit immodest for a newspaper to sing the praises of National Newspaper Week, but we believe that it is justified by the accomplishments of those who work at The Herald-Mail and in the industry at large. The theme of the week, which runs through Oct. 7, is "Newspapers: We cover your life. " When a baby is born, we run a birth announcement. When that same child excels in school or in youth sports, we print his or her name again. So it goes throughout the lives of our readers.

BOONSBORO For members of a service club honored by Gov. Robert Ehrlich, the chance to help strangers in need is inspiring. So was the experience of lending a hand to a friend. "It's kind of neat how they become more aware of being a good citizen," Boonsboro High School Service Club advisor Sally Poole said a day after two of the group's members traveled to Annapolis to pick up a Governor's Service Award. The club, which was nominated by Poole, was one of 40 recipients across the state recognized for outstanding service to the community.
