In Harney you don't have to cut through the city haze to see brilliant stars. Grand, rolling farms frame the community on all sides. The Monocacy River has entertained generations of children who venture there for a quick swim or to fish.Tractors rumble down the road in this place where the residents' sense of community is defined by three things: history, farming and the local fire hall.Called Monocacyville until the late 1850s, Harney rests on the edge of Carroll County, four miles north of Taneytown and almost the same distance to Gettysburg, Pa. The Mason-Dixon Line runs on a hill north of town near the lovely Mountain View Cemetery.

HARNEY -- When Elwood "Woody" Strickhouser and the other boys from the sticks of northwestern Carroll County landed home after whipping the Nazis and romping to victory in World War II, they were still in their 20s and needed some real excitement.So they built themselves a baseball field. They pooled their money, bought a wedge of farmland, cranked up their tractors and created one -- dugouts, grandstand, American flag and all."Spent some of the happiest days of my life here," Strickhouser says.
