HAGERSTOWN - As the Hagerstown Suns' winningest pitcher, Jon Niese is used to reading catchers' signs and turning quick outs. Sunday, the southpaw turned pages instead, as he read "The Other Dog" for a group of young fans at the Suns' game against the Greensboro (N.C.) Grasshoppers. "Yeah, it's fun ... I've done it before this year. It's good for the kids," Niese said. About 30 youngsters, most of whom were boys about 8 to 10 years old, gathered around Niese for Story Time, a program the team sponsors before every Sunday home game.

marlob@herald-mail.com SMITHSBURG - With an active membership of about 40, St. Anne's Episcopal Church at 9 Maple Ave. is one of the smaller congregations in Smithsburg. As such, finances are usually quite tight even on a good day. But with the loss of a vital $30,000 annual grant, the congregation and its pastor, the Rev. Elaine Prince, have had to take measures in an effort to keep the church healthy. "We are having an auction Saturday, April 24, beginning at noon," Prince said.

Perhaps, the world would be a better place if we all listened to our mothers. Our homes would be immaculate. Our postures would be perfect. We would be with Mr. or Mrs. Right. We would not be spending our allowance money on candy and baseball cards (or more recently, shoes and video games) and will have, instead, saved enough to buy that dream home. Wouldn't everything be lovely? Instead of vowing to fulfill the same old New Year's resolutions - to stop smoking, eat better and exercise more - why not revisit that other list of things you've been meaning to do but haven't: those things your mother has been harping about for years?

Sosa's bat was a big deal To the editor: You should have pulled Donald Kaul's column of June 23. I usually read his work, but now fear that I have lost all confidence in his ethical judgment. 1. Sammy Sosa's illegal bat is a very "big deal" for both the game and Sosa. Sosa has batting records that might some day be historical records in the Hall of Fame. Thousands of Little Leaguers collecting baseball cards, must already wonder if his scores are legitimate.

The anticipation's killing me. I'm about to burst. You must be feeling the same way these days. Major League Baseball trades, NBA deals, NFL camps, preseason college football polls, upcoming court cases ... there's nothing to do but look ahead. Projection, anticipation, projection, anticipation. So let's slow things down for a minute of reflection on some recent events. Ed-die! Ed-die! Ed-die! The Memorial Stadium chant mesmerized me as a 10-year-old boy making his first trip to a big-league game in the summer of 1982.

When it comes down to it, opportunities are like Honus Wagner baseball cards. Both are rare and valuable. The Hagerstown Suns didn't have the cards, but had many chances, only to blow them like a week's worth of lunch money. Greensboro made the Suns pay, starting with a seven-run fourth inning, on Friday night in a 10-2 victory in front of Hagerstown's 12th sellout of the season at Municipal Stadium. The Suns squandered prime scoring situations in each of the first three innings, managing only one run because of three double plays.
