julieg@herald-mail.com Storming the Normandy Beach on D-Day 58 years ago, Isaac Everts found some advantages to being the driver of a command halftrack. The enemy was shooting at the Sherman tanks in the water, not at the halftrack. "If they did, they didn't hit it," said Everts, 85, of St. Thomas, Pa. On Friday, Everts and fellow members of the 741st Tank Battalion recounted war stories at the Four Points Sheraton in Hagerstown where about 25 members are holding a three-day reunion.

By LISA GRAYBEAL Staff Writer WILLIAMSPORT -- There's something to be said for plunging into 43-degree water in January. That something was on the lips of about 30 spectators Wednesday as they watched 16 men take their annual New Year's Day plunge into the Potomac River at noon. Why would you ever want to do that? "It's symbolic. It washes off last year's dirt and gets you ready for this year," said John Waltrick of Hagerstown, who co-founded the Hagers-town/Williamsport Polar Bear Club six years ago. It was little comfort to the already shivering jumpers to know that the water was actually 11 degrees warmer than the New Year Day air temperature of 32 degrees, according to an employee at the R.C. Wilson Water Treatment Plant in Williamsport.
