Firefighters on Friday night responded to a residential area east of Waynesboro for a call of smoke coming from the roof of a house, according to a fire official. Lt. John Beck of the Waynesboro Fire Department said the situation could have been much worse if a neighbor - who noticed the smoke at 180 Briar Ridge Drive home - had not called authorities so quickly. “If they had let it go, it would have been much, much worse,” Beck said, commending the neighbor's actions. Firefighters found smoldering insulation above the dining-room ceiling in the house, which is being remodeled and is currently vacant, Beck said.

But times have changed for Duty as he and his wife, Tammy, are Waynesboro business owners who want to make a difference.

Stuart Yorty has moved between several states in his young life, but he always kept focused on his involvement in the Boy Scouts. “It has always been my goal to obtain the rank of Eagle Scout,” said Stuart, 17, of Waynesboro. Due in large part to a service project benefiting active-duty U.S. troops, Stuart has now reached that rank and will celebrate the achievement in a ceremony next month. Stuart sent hundreds of care packages to soldiers deployed overseas from Fort Meade, Md. Stuart collected donations of DVDs, books, toiletries and snacks from area businesses, schools and boxes placed in public places.
