tarar@herald-mail.com HANCOCK - As the only worker in a family of five, Rita Poffenberger said Thursday she can't imagine how she could afford to move out of a trailer park in Hancock on her $16,000 annual salary. But being forced from Vista Village Mobile Home Community is a possibility for Poffenberger and 30 to 40 other families who live there. Washington County developer Steve Sagi has proposed replacing the trailer park on McKinley Drive with 79 residential units for middle-income residents, Hancock Interim Town Manager Lou Close said Thursday.

Goodness, another day, another tornado. When did Hagerstown turn into Kansas all of a sudden? Who do we look like, Auntie Em? All last week people right and left were claiming to see funnel clouds. But this is Washington County, I thought. We have mountains that I've always been taught prevent tornadoes. Maybe they mean they saw funnel cakes. All I can figure is that one of the cloud seeders went bad. He's up there in his single-engine Cessna seeding the clouds with Pop Rocks.

GREENCASTLE, Pa. -- A five-hour standoff in Greencastle on Tuesday between Pennsylvania State Police and a Waynesboro, Pa., man ended when the man was found dead of a self-inflicted gunshot wound. The man, identified by police as Richard A. Patterson Jr., 30, was found dead at the scene by the Pennsylvania State Police Special Emergency Response Team after he held his ex-girlfriend and her mother hostage in an Antrim Township mobile home at 3862 Grosh Drive over what was believed to be a domestic dispute, police said.

I was listening to '70s music last week. It wasn't entirely my fault, because the alt-country station I normally listen to was airing some protracted interview, and aging, rehabbed cowboys aren't always the most effective form of entertainment. So for some reason, I got the idea that I'd switch over to the station that plays all the hits from when I was an early teen to see if the pop music of the day was really as bad as I remembered it to be. Teen music is complex, and quite possibly regional.

GAPLAND - As lucky as Margaret and Bill Kellers seem to be in being furnished with materials and services for their home and lives, the couple believe it is their faith that has supported them for so many years. After all, the couple's income - including Bill Kellers' job as postmaster relief at the St. James post office and some carpentry jobs he did occasionally - was only $5,446 in 2006 and $8,068 in 2005, according to their tax returns. "When we needed something, we prayed and we got it," said Margaret Kellers, 59. They have a wide circle of friends who have helped them, giving the couple items - from bedding to flooring - that they had excess of or no longer needed.
