Retired teacher Marilyn Hembrock worked with the youth group at Trinity Lutheran Church in Smithsburg to make chocolate candies for a fundraiser. One of the popular candies they produced was a version of Reese's Peanut Butter Cups. "We adapted them just through trial and error," Hembrock said. "We tried different things, because the kids love peanut butter cups. " Reese's comes in paper liners similar to those used for cupcakes, so Hembrock used those in her recipe. The kids also wanted to try different flavors, such as mint and chopped nuts.

As a 12,000-pound crystal ball works its way down a pole in New York City's Times Square bidding farewell to 2012, people across the United States - including those locally - will raise their cups with cheers and a toast to ring in the new year. It's tradition.

Just a few moments later, she discovered them a short but winding distance away. “I thought they were going the same way I was, but then they turned around,” Charlae said after they had all made their way back to a clearing. “She thinks she is Magellan,” her father, Larry Pitts, teased. Larry Pitts and his wife, Jennifer, of Hagerstown took Charlae, Larry Pitts, 9, and Jane't Pitts, 7, to the opening day of this year's Hagerstown Corn Maze on Saturday.
