Whether flying through the air or spinning into a blur, figure skaters often make their sport look easy. Take Scott Powell, for instance. Warming up before Saturday’s holiday show at the Hagerstown Ice & Sports Complex, he looked like he was born on ice. “Actually, I’ve been skating 10 years,” he said. “I’ve been a student, a professional skater and now a coach.” Maybe that’s why he makes dangerous look spectacular. Powell, 24, of Martinsburg, W.Va.

TRI-STATE -- Residents in the Eastern Panhandle of West Virginia and southcentral Pennsylvania dug themselves out of more than a foot of snow Sunday.

A record-setting snowstorm that started Friday night wrapped up by 10:30 p.m. Saturday, leaving vast swaths of snow behind. Reports from area weather watchers placed accumulations anywhere from 7.5 inches in Greene Township, Pa., to 20 inches in Martinsburg, W.Va.

Walking in a winter wonderland. That could have been the theme for this past weekend. Lots of white fluff to decorate our world, and I need to thank our town's crew for getting and keeping our streets clear in a timely and efficient manner. All their hours of hard work makes it safer for us. Great job, guys. Winter dance Winter wonderland is a great theme, especially for a middle school dance.  E. Russell Hicks Middle School is gearing up for its dance Thursday from 2:30 to 4 p.m.,  and just in time for the landscape to match the dance's aptly named theme.  Ahh, middle school dances ... somehow I doubt they will be grooving to Peter Frampton or the Bee Gees while the air is filled with Love's Baby Soft perfume and Lip Smackers.

For centuries, Christmas has been a mash-up of sacred and secular. The Christian story of Jesus' birth in the arid Middle East collides with Northern European nature-based celebrations of the winter solstice and observations of local deities. Wise men and angels rub shoulders with decorated trees and snowy pine wreathes. For this year's decorations, the Miller House favors the wintry traditions of Europe and North America. James D. Neville, executive director of the Miller House, Washington County Historical Society's museum, said this year's theme is Winter Wonderland.

nicoler@herald-mail.com As snow continued to fall Friday morning, many in downtown Hagerstown said they were tired of winter. "I think I'm sick of it. Too much of a good thing is bad," said Lauren Carnhan, 17, of Boonsboro. Snow has covered much of the ground since Feb. 16, when a storm that dumped nearly two feet began. Since then, more snow has accumulated as different weather systems have moved across the area. "I would like it to just dump on us one time and be done with it," Greencastle, Pa., resident Akbar Lotfi, 44, said.

Without wasting any time, 8-year-old Andrew Trostle headed straight for Santa Claus at Friday's 22nd annual Greencastle-Antrim Heritage Christmas in downtown Greencastle. When you have a unique Christmas request like Andrew's, the youngster wanted to make sure St. Nick knew exactly what to load in his sleigh. “I wanted to make sure he got my list. I told him I want a cross chopper mower head,” he said Andrew's mother Holly Trostle of Mercersburg explained that the item is a piece of farming equipment.

Candidate thanks those who supported him To the editor: I learned more than I could have ever imagined this past election, from meeting the diverse people of Hagerstown to navigating our political process. I would like to thank the nearly 4,000 people who came out and voted for me, all of the people who put up signs, who endorsed me and who donated to my campaign. But I especially want to thank everyone for the encouragement that I received during and after the campaign, which helped to keep me motivated throughout the election.
