Barber retires silver scissors after 42 years By ANDREA BROWN-HURLEY andreabh@herald-mail.com Photo: RIC DUGAN / staff photographer It's been a good ride, but Sharpsburg's lone barber has retired her silver scissors to the dismay of her loyal patrons. Doris Bender closed the door April 27 to Bender's Barber Shop, where she had cut men's hair since 1959. "I'm ready to take life easy," said Bender, 62. The petite native Hawaiian said she gained a loyal following in the 42 years since she moved to her new husband's hometown and began working in the 107 E. Main St. barber shop then owned by Ray Bender - no relation.

Anyone who thinks that today's stock-car racing is as good as it gets should turn off the hype and dig out their VHS machine. Pop in that fuzzy old NASCAR highlights tape that came with the magazine subscription renewal. Put it on rewind. Let it wind all the way back to, say, 1976. When you see the number 21 painted on the side of a race car followed by the number 43, hit the stop button. Then hit play. Settle back. Pop open a cold one. You're about to witness the thrill of stock-car racing at its fender-bangin' best.

By LISA GRAYBEAL Staff Writer, Chambersburg McCONNELLSBURG, Pa. - The announcement that JLG Industries will lay off 850 employees in September may not be bad news for everyone. Some local business owners say they're expecting a boost in sales if history repeats itself. "Sales noticeably increase. We've talked about this before. People keep their shopping local," said Mahlon Shimer, owner of Shimer's Racket Store in downtown McConnellsburg. Instead of "going over the hump" - Shimer's reference to the mountain between McConnellsburg and Chambersburg - to do their shopping, people tend to stay in town, where reduced incomes can be stretched at local hardware stores and groceries, he said.

It's fantastic," he said. "You can't put them in the same category.

Few people have been unscathed by the gnarly fingers of the recession. The hardest hit have been mangled by lost jobs, homes and savings. Other have just been grazed by pay freezes amid inflation, reduced or eliminated employer retirement contributions, frozen credit lines or altered insurance coverage. Perhaps one of the most subtle symptoms of the recession is what I think of as the incredible shrinking product. In an effort of survive skyrocketing production costs, manufacturers have been faced with a choice: raise product prices or reduce package sizes.
