ryant@herald-mail.com After lining city streets for last week's funeral proceedings for President Reagan, American flags stayed out and at half-staff Monday as the nation celebrated Flag Day. The national holiday is celebrated every June 14 to commemorate the anniversary of the official adoption of the Stars and Stripes in 1777. "The value of the flag is not really found in the fabric but is found in its meanings of liberty and freedom," Del. Robert A. McKee, R-Washington, said Monday during a ceremony marking the day at Hagerstown City Hall.

chambersburg@herald-mail.com FORT LOUDON, Pa. - Many veterans lie buried in Stenger Hill Cemetery, but for most, the village of Fort Loudon had been their home. In one corner of the cemetery, however, is the grave of a young man who died in what for him was a foreign land. "They figure he was one of the men on the raid that strayed this way," Anna Rotz said of the unknown Confederate soldier's grave. The soldier was shot July 30, 1864, the same time that Confederate raiders were occupying and burning Chambersburg, Pa., about 16 miles to the east.

White stars set upon a field of blue, representing a new constellation in the night sky, lie near 13 stripes of red and white. On days of peace and joy, it flies high in the sky. In times of grief and loss, it is lowered to half-staff out of  respect for the fallen. And whether it is called Old Glory, the Stars and Stripes or the Star-Spangled Banner, each June 14, Americans honor their flag. The city of Hagerstown held its annual Flag Day celebration Tuesday at University Plaza.

GREENCASTLE, Pa. -- To 12-year-old Garrett Sutton, the American flag is more than a few stars and stripes waving in the wind. "It reminds me of our troops and I feel something special for the men and women who have died out there," he said. "It (the flag) deserves our respect. " Garrett and 25 members of Boy Scout troops 99 and 88 paid final respects to 400 U.S. flags on Monday by giving each a proper retirement and a final salute. There is only one preferred way to retire a flag, and that is by flame, said Boy Scout Unit Commissioner Bill Yoder.

tammyb@herald-mail.com CATOCTIN FURNACE, Md. - Nestled in the Catoctin Mountains near the Camp David presidential retreat, Trout Run, a 453-acre recreational compound, is a nature lover's dream. It's also been a closely guarded secret for decades. Famous people could make clandestine visits to the camp, "and nobody knew they were here," said Trout Run owner Howard Haugerud, 79. "The only reason we're opening it now is because we're trying to peddle it," he said.

On a recent trip home to Maryland, I had a strong desire to take a walk. Despite what Woody Allen said about the country, that there's "no place to walk after dinner," there actually are a lot of really beautiful trails relatively close to where I live. One of them in particular is especially beautiful. To the left is a rock face covered in ferns and moss and to the right is a drop-off leading down to a small stream. Sometimes there are deer stopping to drink at the blue pools.

Jessica Lord of Martinsburg, W.Va., isn't a model. She's a Marine. But it is because of her service with the Marine Corps that Lord was selected to be part of Lifetime's “Project Runway All Stars” as part of the show's “All Stars and Stripes” episode on Jan. 3. That deserves a Marine “ooh-rah!” The episode selected four female veterans to have outfits created for them by the final four all-stars  - Uli Herzner, Joshua McKinley, Anthony Ryan Auld and Emilio Sosa - as part of the Real Women Challenge.

"President Clinton lies about his relationship with Monica, he embarrasses himself and hurts his family, and he is impeached. George Bush lies about weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, 1,800 Americans are killed, tens of thousands of innocent Iraqis are killed, and nothing happens. Why?" - Hagerstown "I see in Monday's paper where some Democrats in Montgomery County are talking about tougher DUI penalties in Maryland. I think you need to concentrate more on these gangs around the state of Maryland that are coming in, all these foreigners who start these gangs.
