Any job is easy when you have the right tool in the box. On Friday, the Waynesboro football team had an Adgers and it made the Indians craftsmen. Running back Johnnie Adgers rushed 37 times for 218 yards and a touchdown while the Indians' defense pounded in the loose nails for a 9-0 win over New Oxford. It's Waynesboro's first win this season and a nice way to go into the Mid-Penn conference schedule starting next week. Adgers scored from the 5 on Waynesboro's first drive of the second half to break a scoreless tie. It was a big relief after the Indians failed to capitalize on great field position in the first half.

About 200 residents of West Second Street between Grant and Potomac streets are being asked to continue boiling water as the Borough of Waynesboro awaits testing results from bacterial samples. Stormwater system work in that area necessitated moving some water lines and temporarily shutting down water service Monday, according to Leiter Pryor, director of utilities. Residents were given a boil-water notice Sunday through an automated system, Pryor said. Results from state-required testing on samples are needed to clear the water for regular use, Pryor said.

The Waynesboro Borough Council received comments Wednesday about its proposed rental-inspection program, which has detractors concerned about perceived costs. The program, which has been discussed for four years, calls for routine inspections of the municipality's more than 2,000 rental units. It is designed to allow for a systematic way of getting into properties to ensure they have plumbing, electrical, heating and other systems that meet International Property Maintenance Code standards.

“Ga-ga, ga-ga!” dozens of voices chanted Sunday, neither imitating a baby nor yelling for a pop star. Instead, the crowd in Fairview Avenue Brethren in Christ Church used “ga-ga, ga-ga!” to pump up enthusiasm during the game of the same name. Forty-eight participants ages 3 to 63 jumped into a makeshift ring to duke it out for a ga-ga tournament. Ga-ga is easier to say than it is to play. The game resembles dodgeball, except participants essentially slap the ball around with an open palm and try to eliminate opponents by driving that ball into their lower bodies.

Proposed changes to Borough of Waynesboro regulations could make it easier to open sidewalk cafes in town. The Waynesboro Borough Council is considering adopting an ordinance that would allow tables and chairs within the public right of way. Those items would be required to “remain movable” if the ordinance passes as proposed. The council is soliciting feedback on the ordinance and might vote on it in late November, Borough Manager Lloyd Hamberger said Wednesday. “That's exactly what I thought we should have,” Councilman Mike Cermak said of the latest draft.
