Eileen Rook was on the hunt for a good bargain Monday afternoon, but she chose to pass on one unique item offered for sale - a soap dispenser shaped and painted like a toucan. Rook of Quincy did order scarves during the community yard sale offered as part of the Quincy Ox Roast. A few antiques, including a comb case, caught her eye. “It think it's a good time. There are a lot of people and different things,” said Rook, who has shopped at the yard sale for several years.

Scott Shacreaw begins his fourth year as Waynesboro head football coach and is hoping his program is ready to make an upward turn. It's been 21 years since the Indians have finished a season above the .500 mark. Their last winning campaign was in 1992, when they went 9-2. The Indians come off a 3-7 season looking for better fortunes beginning Friday night at East Pennsboro. Senior Nathan Toney (6-foot, 195 pounds) - who was recently named one of the team's captains - will be the quarterback in a backfield that needs a replacement for Johnnie Adgers, now at Valley Forge Military Academy.
