WAYNESBORO, Pa. - Chris Brown had little sleep after his homecoming festivities, but, fueled by a hot dog, he joined more than 100 other people in Sunday's CROP Walk in Waynesboro. "This must be a record crowd," Janet Brockmann told the walkers before they stepped off. Brockmann, who organized the event through the Waynesboro Area Fellowship of Churches, said earlier in the day that she hoped to at least come close to the number of walkers who participated in 2006. That year had 115 participants, up from 41 in 2005.
