Tool time for beginners assembling their first do-it-yourself instruments, think quality, not quantity By KEVIN CLAPPkevinc@herald-mail.com Wandering the aisles of Clear Spring Hardware assisting customers, Ted Hovermale's tape measure is always close at hand. Carrying the retractable ruler makes sense. After all, in the home improvement arena a fraction of an inch can mean the difference between a firmly anchored bracket and one that clumsily pops from a wall. More telling is his opinion of the device at home.

Fall is just about here, and the weather is finally cooling off. I don't know about you, but I've had my fill of gnats, heat and humidity, so fall couldn't be more welcome. With cooler weather, we can exercise outside a little more often without worrying about being eaten alive by bugs, or being steam cooked in the 95-degree weather. I occasionally take a trip to Hagerstown City Park or the North Hagerstown School Mike Callas Stadium for some great outdoor workouts. I'm going to share with you some of my favorite fitness tools to get out of the gym, and into some fun in the great outdoors.

Commuter skills study may lead to stronger community What kind of a job would it take to make you stay at home? That's the question Jefferson County, W.Va. officials will soon be asking, as they try to develop a new marketing tool to draw new businesses to the area. It's an idea we've suggested in the past, because most workers commute out of the area for employment because they feel they must, not because they enjoy long train or car rides. According to Jane Peters, the head of the Jefferson County Development Authority, the county's work force of 22,000 includes 12,000 who commute out of the area every day. But where they go and what jobs skills they possess is unknown now. To find out, Peters' group will team up with Shpeherd College's Business and Economics Department to send a two-page questionnaire to 3,000 county households.

The irony is obvious, but in 1980 the United States was part of a multinational boycott of the Summer Olympics in Moscow - the reason for the boycott being the Soviets' invasion of Afghanistan. The only tangible effect of this boycott was a counter-boycott by the Soviets of the 1984 Summer Games in Los Angeles, because we stood accused of perpetuating “anti-Soviet hysteria.” Today, the Soviets are gone and it's we who are in Afghanistan. But once again there is talk of a boycott, this time over Russia's harboring of whistleblower Edward Snowden.

Any job is easy when you have the right tool in the box. On Friday, the Waynesboro football team had an Adgers and it made the Indians craftsmen. Running back Johnnie Adgers rushed 37 times for 218 yards and a touchdown while the Indians' defense pounded in the loose nails for a 9-0 win over New Oxford. It's Waynesboro's first win this season and a nice way to go into the Mid-Penn conference schedule starting next week. Adgers scored from the 5 on Waynesboro's first drive of the second half to break a scoreless tie. It was a big relief after the Indians failed to capitalize on great field position in the first half.
