BOONSBORO - More than 800 people visited Fahrney-Keedy Home and Village in Boonsboro recently for the sixth annual Summer Fest. Under sunny skies, they found food, crafts, entertainment for children, a petting zoo, a large display of classic cars and other activities. A disc jockey tended a steady flow of rock 'n' roll hits from the 1950s at the classic cars show. In another corner of the grounds, a barrel train carried youngsters around near where a water slide also was getting constant use. In various booths, children putted golf balls, tried picking out specially numbered plastic ducks for prizes, created sand art and had their faces painted.

WAYNESBORO, Pa. - The drought in Pennsylvania has claimed another victim. The Waynesboro Borough Council has voted to keep Northside Pool, the borough's municipal pool, closed for the 2002 swimming season. The water level in the reservoir that supplies the borough's public water system has dropped to an unprecedented low because of the lack of rain, officials have said. The summer pool season normally runs from Memorial Day through Labor Day, said borough Councilwoman Vicki Jo Huff.
