T. Bruce Robinson Jr. falsely represented himself as a retired U.S. Secret Service agent to hundreds of people in the past 10 years - apparently with no more nefarious intent than to cadge free coffee at the Westminster 7-Eleven, according to his conviction and sentencing last week in Carroll County Circuit Court. The charade fell through the afternoon of June 28, said assistant state's attorney Edward J. Coyne. The convenience store clerk became suspicious because she believed Robinson had stolen a $5 plastic mug and doubted his claim that he got free refills because he was a retired police officer - because she "never had any other police officers make such a statement."

HARRISBURG, Pa.- Philadelphia may have been home to America's most famous flagmaker, but the massive painting that made Betsy Ross a household name will be permanently ensconced at a museum here 80 miles away. As legend has it, the 24-year-old Ross stitched together the first flag of the fledgling nation. She might have remained just another hardworking seamstress lost to history had Philadelphia artist Charles H. Weisgerber not discovered her more than a century later. Finding inspiration In 1892 Weisgerber was walking the streets trying to come up with a subject for a painting contest when he noticed a small plaque on the side of a cigar store at 239 Arch St. identifying the building as the place site of the flag's creation.
