The Waffle House on Sharpsburg Pike felt more like a home on Christmas Day as some families gathered at the restaurant to share their holiday breakfast. Boonsboro resident Jill Selby said her family made Waffle House a part of its Christmas celebration about a decade ago. “We come out for breakfast after we open our presents,” she said. “It’s the only place that’s open. They always treat us good. It’s sad they have to work, but I’m thankful they do.” Waffle House District Manager John Strickland said the restaurant chain never closes.

Robert Calum Lunsford of Fairplay achieved the Eagle Scout rank in 2011. Calum's Eagle Scout project was to refurbish a reproduction Civil War-era cannon, carriage and limber at Antietam National Battlefield. When his project was completed, the rangers gave him a certificate that would allow him to fire the cannon during one of their live-fire weekends.
