ALLEN BROWN and the Wishing Well are as familiar at the Mount Airy volunteer firemen's carnival as the savory aroma of pit beef barbecuing or the twinkle of lights on the rides. The country and bluegrass band founded by local resident Allen Brown returns to the fair today as the featured entertainment with a performance at 7:30 p.m. "I'm just pleased to be able to help my fire company," said Brown, who for 20 years was a firefighter in the Mount Airy company. "They're a phone call away 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and this carnival is their big fund-raiser."

Sometimes you just can't win for losing. But then again, sometimes you do win, so it makes the whole game worthwhile.For example, there are the groundhogs that happily eluded my dog all last summer. (I'm not at all sure the dog would have known what to do if she caught one, but she tried). They ate all the fruit off my trees, dug holes in every conceivable spot except where I might have chosen to plant something and, to crown it all, stared blatantly in our windows each evening as we ate our dinner.

Hampstead's first firehouse -- a landmark at 1214 N. Main St. -- is getting a face lift.Our generation knows the place as Towne Pride Interiors. Back in 1902, it was Hampstead's firehouse, built to house a company that was formed in 1899. A generation later, it was home to "40 active and 150 volunteers," The Sun reported Jan. 16, 1939.A week ago, when workmen tore off the siding and signage of the storefront, the raised brickwork letters H.F. Co. No. 1 shone over the door like a forgotten pearl.
