tarar@herald-mail.com CASCADE - Harry Hamby stepped off the dance floor Sunday but kept his body swaying from side to side while discussing why he makes weekly trips to Pen Mar Park in Cascade. "We love to dance," said Hamby. "If they play 'New York, New York,' I'm going back out there. " Hamby was in luck. Moments later the band Twilight 3+1 played his song and the Maugansville resident made his way back to the dance floor, where couples were already gliding and twirling to the tune.

Now, I'm really mad. I was channel surfing the other day, looking for something football-related to watch and couldn't find a thing. I've got a dish the size of a pu-pu platter with every station known to man and you would figure there would be something on having to do with football. The closest thing was to watch Emmitt Smith on that "Dancing with the Stars" show. And then I really got mad. That should have been me. The show contacted me to be the token football personality on the show.

If you find your evening of Monday, Feb. 4 in need of a boost, I suggest you make your way to the ballroom of the American Legion ballroom in Funkstown and watch as Washington County high school students in grades nine through 12 compete in a patriotic oratorical contest.  The speeches on the Constitution begin at 7 p.m. and light refreshments will be served following the contest. I have for a number of years been privileged to judge this competition, and was exceedingly impressed by the poise and knowledge exhibited by these young men and women.

Aviation is part of Hagerstown's history, so wining, dining and dancing next to jets and prop aircraft in a hangar to raise money for a local museum seemed like a good idea to the board of directors of Discovery Station at Hagerstown. Saturday night, the Rider Jet Center at Hagerstown Regional Airport became a ballroom for the second annual Hangarfest, with museum patrons and others paying $45 for a catered meal and music by the Rhythm Kings, Spectrum and The Ray Birely Orchestra.
