HALFWAY - Compared to most collectors, Alan Comins got a head start pursuing his hobby. He became interested in toy helicopters at the age of 10 - the time most boys' notions of collecting went no further than baseball cards. "I'm not sure what the initial fascination was," the Boonsboro resident said. "I guess I just thought they were kind of neat. " Thirty years later, Comins has a small room in his house filled with helicopters of all sizes. "I've lost count as to how many I actually have," he said.

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.

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.
