Crena Anderson wasn't at Pearl Harbor when the Japanese attacked on Dec. 7, 1941. But the 88-year-old Halfway resident will be linked to that day for the rest of her life. She said her first and second husbands were stationed at Army bases in Hawaii during the attack, although the two young soldiers didn't know each other at the time. “I'm proud of what they did - very proud,” Crena said at her home earlier this week. “They must have been scared to death.” Crena said she married her first husband, Marvin Spencer, shortly after they met while he was home on leave in 1944.

DAMASCUS, Md. -- It was almost as if the No. 3 on the back of Samantha Edwards stood for the number of games it was going to take Damascus to dispose of South Hagerstown in Friday night's Maryland Class 3A West volleyball final. If not for the Hornets senior, the 25-18, 25-17, 25-17 sweep of the Rebels would have been very unlikely. "She's a stud, there's no doubt about it," said South coach Chuck Weaver of the 6-foot-1 outside hitter, who finished with 18 kills. "There were times when she was in the back (row)

The Brunswick boys basketball team had the wheels in motion Wednesday night, especially in the second half when the Railroaders rallied from an eight-point halftime deficit to steam past South Hagerstown, 59-51. On every defensive rebound, Brunswick sent two, and at times three, players releasing on the offensive attack, and it worked most effectively in the second half as the Railroaders (4-5) came back from a 29-21 halftime deficit. "We wanted to be aggressive and release off the boards," said Brunswick coach Dan McLane.

WILLIAMSPORT ? As war stories go, Maury Werth has the makings of one of the best. On Dec. 7, 1941, his Navy ship, the USS Raleigh, was the first to be struck by a Japanese torpedo in Pearl Harbor, and he was on the anti-aircraft gun crew that helped shoot down five Japanese planes. But to hear him tell it, the day that would live in infamy was just an inevitable event, and he just happened to be there. Werth, 90, of Williamsport, speaks with awe of the carefully coordinated Japanese attack and admiration for the level-headedness of his commander, who kept the Raleigh from capsizing as it took on 4,000 tons of water by ordering all topside weight thrown overboard.

It's been a big week for Greencastle-Antrim volleyball coach Corry Eagler. On Monday, the No. 3 Blue Devils upset then-No. 1 Williamsport in five games, avenging last year's five-game loss to the Wildcats. "The girls were waiting for this for a long time," Eagler said. "We felt we could do this last year, and it could have gone either way. (Williamsport) and Chambersburg are our biggest matches, so we're halfway there. " If Monday was a good day, Wednesday was a great one - Eagler gave birth to her daughter, Abigail, who weighed 9 pounds, 2 ounces.

How far can North Hagerstown go? That's the dominant question in Washington County girls lacrosse this season, because the Hubs are clearly the team to beat. North went 10-3 in 2012 and returns 10 starters. Five of them were Herald-Mail All-County First Team honorees, led by junior twins Leah Peterson - last year's county player of the year - and Kayla Peterson. They combined for 118 goals last year. The biggest change for the Hubs is the head coach, with Robert Compton taking over for Katie Eck, who was The Herald-Mail's Lacrosse Coach of the Year in 2012.

HAGERSTOWN - The Hagerstown City Council is considering making it illegal for people to keep vicious and dangerous animals within city limits. Police Chief Arthur Smith said during a City Council work session Tuesday that the intent of an proposed ordinance amendment is to reduce the number of repeat attacks by the same animal. The amendment does not specify specific breeds of animals, Smith said. To be deemed vicious and dangerous, an animal would have to bite a human or attack another animal without provocation, he said.
