When Edras Mazariegos-Gomez and his wife, Marilu Mazariegos, left Guatemala in 1994 for a better life in the United States, they never dreamed of owning a home.

But Saturday, the couple and their six children participated in an official dedication and blessing of their new Habitat for Humanity home at 836 Limestone Drive in Chambersburg.

Franklin County commissioners have committed $25,000 from the county's Housing Trust Fund for two Habitat for Humanity projects.

Mark Story, executive director of Habitat for Humanity of Franklin County, requested the funds to help redevelop blighted properties in Chambersburg and Waynesboro.

A couple donated the property at 25 North Broad Street, Waynesboro, to the nonprofit. The structure was razed because it was unsafe, but Habitat hopes to build a single-family home on the site in 2016.

Forget ribbon cutting.

Habitat for Humanity's ReStore home improvement store found a more relevant way to celebrate its grand opening on Jan. 23 — with a board cutting ceremony.

After sawing through the piece of lumber, store manager Justin Hoke opened his doors to a line of about 40 shoppers.
