WAYNESBORO, Pa. -- Last Halloween, two Waynesboro businessmen purchased a building that resembled a giant pumpkin and since have carved out a restaurant space unlike others downtown. The formerly orange John Wallace building on West Main Street now features two outdoor seating areas that could comfortably seat 90 restaurant-goers, according to one of the building's owners. And the paint scheme has been muted with more natural hues. "I think we get the award for 'most improved' because it was the worst-looking building," said Paul Gunder, who joined Bob Zimmerman, a Waynesboro dentist, in the efforts.

HAGERSTOWN -- Bob Coss remembers the treehouse he helped build in the mulberry tree in the woods behind a neighbor's house off Pangborn Boulevard. "It was pretty big. I think we had three rooms -- two levels right above each other and a third level kind of at a kilter -- made out of old pallets and deteriorating rubber mats we found at an old factory," recalled Coss, now 48. "It was fancy. " And, he said with a laugh, "it was pretty high up, much to my mother's displeasure.

waynesboro@herald-mail.com GREENCASTLE, Pa. - Mary Fedorka blocks out the traffic and train noise under the railroad overpass where she is painting two large murals by turning up the headphones on her portable CD player. "What I play depends on my mood and where I am in the project at the time," said Fedorka, 39, of Hagers- town. The huge sweep of sky above the early-20th-century train station she's painting requires classical selections such as Vivaldi's "Four Seasons," Fedorka said.

"Transformers: Revenge of The Fallen" is something to be ashamed of. Why was this movie allowed to be released? Weren't there hundreds of people whose job it was to make sure it wouldn't be like this? Will any of them ever work again? They might if they lie on their resumes. The film is a sequel to the 2007 movie "Transformers," itself based on a popular cartoon and line of toys. For those new to the franchise, Transformers are fighting robots from another planet that live undercover on Earth disguised as everyday objects.

The walls are a cheerful light green. At eye level for a small child is a section, bordered by blue molding, with the words “believe,” “dream,” “smile,” “wish” and “imagine.” In a corner of the room is a carpet segment with a big, soft pillow on which to lean. It’s a good place to sit and read or peruse the books in the bookcase that helps create the space. “It’s beautiful. It’s heavenly,” Loretta Wright, director of Memorial Recreation Center, said Sunday at an open house for the renovated library room in the center on West North Avenue in Hagerstown.

MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - A transformer that failed Wednesday afternoon at Allegheny Power's Martinsburg substation caused a utility service outage that affected about 1,700 customers for several hours, a company spokesman said. The failure first was reported to Allegheny Power at 1:18 p.m., and spokesman David Neurohr said "everybody was back on" by 4:30 p.m. The transformer failed because of a fault in another piece of equipment, causing a chain reaction, Neurohr said. The outage appeared to affect multiple blocks of King and John streets, but Neurohr could not specify the exact area.
