  • OUTDOORS: Fall a favorite time to enjoy nature's beauty

    My favorite time of the year has arrived once again. I have just returned home from a business trip to Gettysburg, Pa., and actually enjoyed the eight-plus hour drive through the mountains of West Virginia, Maryland and Pennsylvania.

    Gravitt left her entire estate, totaling almost $285,000, to the Franklin County Humane Society.
