You might not be used to seeing "entry-level" and "Audi" in the same sentence, but that hasn't stopped the company from heading down that path with the new A3. High-end - and exclusive - German builders that attempt to appeal to a broader audience haven't always fared well with their ideas. Driving a vehicle that's devoid of features, power and style is no way to trumpet to the world that you own an Audi, Mercedes or a BMW. That said, there appears to be a fine line where both image and cost-conscious buyers can co-exist, and Audi appears ready to walk it. It's no secret that, as a manufacturer, if you can get younger buyers into your showrooms now, chances are good they'll be buying A6s and A8s when they get a little older.

Between 12,000 and 16,000 cars a day pass through the intersection of Maugans Avenue and U.S. 11, many on their way to or from a nearby Interstate 81 exit. Washington County officials have talked about an upgrade to the road for the past five years, in part because between 1999 and 2004, there were 85 accidents there. But after all the design work was done and the bids came back, the lowest of the two submitted was nearly $3 million more than the county's estimate. Why did it happen and what can be done to prevent such a thing from happening again?

If ever a team earned the right to enjoy an 11-1 start, it's Waynesboro's top-ranked girls basketball team. Two years ago, coach Doug Stuart made the decision to play mostly sophomores and freshmen to get them experience at the varsity level. They finished 2-22. "We brought them up and they played every minute of every game and took their lumps," Stuart said. Waynesboro started to reap the benefits of the move last season, as the Maidens finished 12-13, qualified for the Mid-Penn Conference playoffs and earned a spot in a PIAA District 3 play-in game - accomplishments no Maidens team in recent memory had achieved.

On paper, the 2009-10 MVAL Antietam girls basketball race looks like a three-team showdown between North Hagerstown, Smithsburg and South Hagerstown. The Hubs -- who went 23-3 last season, shared the MVAL Piedmont title with Middletown and won the Class 2A West title to reach the state semifinals -- have a new coach in Cynthia Benjamin. She replaces Barry Brown, now the men's coach at Hagerstown Community College. While North lost some top talent -- including Herald-Mail Washington County Player of the Year Kirksten Mitchell, All-County First Team selection LaRae Allen and All-County Second Team honoree Kishia Jackson -- the Hubs return All-County Second Team guard Quielanna Scott and several other contributors from last season.

Aaron Staley has added his name to a list of dominant prep golfers in Washington County. In recent years, there was Seiji Hirai and Chris Bushey among the boys, and Ashley Grier, Haeun Lee and Angela Wacker among the girls. And then, along came Staley. The North Hagerstown senior has been the “medalist” golfer during his career at North, winning The Herald-Mail's Washington County Player of the Year honors in 2010 and 2011. Despite personal disappointment at not making a stronger run at winning the Maryland state championship, Staley can find solace in the fact he qualified four consecutive years - finishing his prep career with a 39th-place finish at the University of Maryland in October.

Many of us stood stricken with grief on Sept. 11 as we watched or listened to the chaos surrounding the fall of the twin towers of the World Trade Center, the airliner crash into the Pentagon and the Washington-bound jet fly into the ground in Pennsylvania. It was the kind of grief that for some would only deepen as they received the news that their loved one would not be coming home due to the terrorists' deliberate destruction of human life in America. How did you handle the grief that came from Sept.

The Berkeley Springs football team is off to a 3-0 start for the first time in 28 years. That fact alone would have some believing that the Indians are a surprise. The truth is Berkeley Springs has been one of the most consistent football programs in the area since Angelo Luvara became the head coach in 2000. The Indians have just one losing regular season since Luvara's arrival - they went 3-7 in his first year. The Indians finished 2005 with a 5-6 record, but only after dropping a first-round playoff game.

A Sharpsburg man planting trees at his Powell Road home Thursday unearthed a live Civil War-era shell that authorities later disposed of by setting it off at a neighboring farm. “When I saw it I knew what it was,” J.D. Taylor Jr. said. “It was the second one I found here. “It was some kind of experience.” Taylor said he at first thought he hit a rock with his steel shovel while digging in his yard about a mile from Antietam National Battlefield sometime between 8:30 to 9 a.m. He pushed the shovel under the object, which was five or six inches deep, and knelt to pry it out. The Maryland State Fire Marshal's office said in a news release that the object was a 3-inch Federal Navy Schenkl that had not been fired and had an intact fusing mechanism.

Just two of the 10 wrestlers representing North Hagerstown and South Hagerstown at the Maryland Class 4A-3A West region championships advanced to the semifinals on the first day of the tournament Friday at Sherwood High School.

South's Marquil Holt advanced at 220 with a 4-0 decision over Dalonte Taylor of Northwood in the quarters.

The fast-food giant has proposed building a 3,905-square-foot restaurant in what is now a parking area at the corner of Northern and Oak Hill avenues as an outlying parcel to the shopping center.
