Slide show HAGERSTOWN -- For two days, the parking lots, football field and school facility at South Hagerstown High School have provided a home base for the Jersey Surf Drum and Bugle Corps, which is rehearsing for a Drum Corps International event today in West Chester, Pa. The final destination for the Berlin, N.J.-based group is the DCI World Championships in Indianapolis in early August. The sounds of their high energy show -- showcasing the talent of its brass and percussion sections as well as the color guard -- could be heard well beyond the South High football field, where the group has been practicing.

You're kidding me. That? That was 11 weeks? Already? So this means I have to go back to that ... place with all the learning and the ... sitting and the stuff? Oh, well. It could be worse. I could have to sit through every day without band! I'm a proud band geek. I (unlike more normal people) want school to start. Being in school means I get to go to band at the end of every day. So this must mean my regimen for getting ready at the end of summer is different from the average student?

For 65 years, the Boonsboro High School Marching Band has provided music for the community, from home football games to the Mummers Parade. And for almost as long, band members have met for two weeks every summer to begin training for the upcoming band competition season. Marching bands have come a long way in the past two or three decades. On the high school level, there are now band competitions every Saturday. Each band performs a field show - marching around a football field and making different forms while playing music.

Graduation, and the fact she plays violin, would not keep Jessica Mardres off the field. "It's kind of addicting after a while. It's not something you can just quit doing," Jessica, 17, said after the Smithsburg High School band marched off the field Tuesday night at School Stadium at South Hagerstown High School.

Fireworks and politicians seem to go together Why do politicians and fireworks go together? Not sure? Neither am I, but both were blazing away in Hancock last Saturday at the 2006 Barge Bash. The politicians roved the banks of the C&O Canal, almost outnumbering tourists (yes - a slight exaggeration!) enjoying the sights and fun of a unique small-town festival. From the governor's office to the local school board, candidates of all parties and persuasions seemed to be having a good time.
