Hamilton Park project finished By DAN KULIN / Staff Writer Sometimes when Bobbie Elmlinger walks around her Hagerstown neighborhood she feels like Santa Claus. That's because Elmlinger played a major role in bringing new swing sets, slides and a basketball court to Hamilton Park off Fairview Road. The city paid for the purchases and installation, which cost about $32,400. But the idea for the project came from the community through the Northwest Neighbors, Neighborhoods First group.

For 29 years, tiny St. James school has seen plenty of big-name players set foot on its basketball court. Names like Scott and Stackhouse, Mercer and McGrady have shown their stuff as high school players in the St. James Invitational Tournament before moving on to big-time college programs or right to the pros. There will be no 30th anniversary for the three-day showcase, however. The school has cancelled the upcoming tournament, which was scheduled for Feb. 13-15, 2003. St. James athletic director Paul Salit said the tournament was cancelled for "a bunch of reasons" but would not comment further Wednesday night.

The annual Ruth Ann V. Monroe Summer Basketball League has been a Wheaton Park tradition for decades. Participants said the league in the park dates back to the 1970s, and they reminisced Sunday about the good times: the frozen Snickers bars, the horseshoe pits and the concerts that accompanied the hours of play on the basketball court. “Great memories. Great memories,” said Wayne Mason, who moved to Hagerstown from Shepherdstown, W.Va., when he was 12 years old and spent many days hanging out in the park for tournaments.

The Hagerstown Community College men's basketball program is about to go into orbit. The Hawks are like the astronauts who used to routinely take trips on the space shuttle. They are about to explore a new frontier that only a few have experienced before them. OK, it may not be the quiet and awe-inspiring vastness of outer space, but it's a galaxy with its own stars. It's the NJCAA Division I national tournament. It happens yearly, but for teams like HCC, most see it about as often as Halley's Comet.

There is more to Donte Thomas than meets the eye. He has multiple personalities on the basketball court. There is more to him than he shows. The Hagerstown Community College guard has changed his identity over the course of the year as his game evolved and the Hawks' needs revolved. And because of it, Thomas and HCC are out to change the perspective of Mid-Atlantic basketball. Thomas was known as a scorer coming out of high school, but now he's a leading assist man in junior college basketball.

If you are looking for me at a high school basketball game, I'm not hard to find. You can usually spot me sitting in a secluded, empty spot in the bleachers, away from the maddening crowds. I'm probably wearing jeans and a fleece pullover that's in one of 50 shades of gray. I'm not allowed to wear red, green, purple or blue because that would make me biased. I try very hard not to drink anything with sour grapes as an ingredient. And I like “zebras,” although bias prevents me from writing about or feeding them.

Thomas Blake visited the Great Plains in August with the idea of attending the University of North Dakota. He also had thoughts of attending the school in Grand Forks to continue his athletic career. Blake, who showed skills as a soccer player while at St. Maria Goretti, decided to make the venture in basketball. “When I came here I chose basketball because I felt I had to prove something to myself,” Blake said. “I proved I could play soccer.” Blake, who was a Herald-Mail first-team All-Washington County soccer star, toiled on the basketball court for the Gaels for a couple of years.

Optimists believe you don't know what the future holds unless you take a shot. In many cases, that's easier said than done. No matter how confident most of us think we are, there is always a little self-doubt. We hate failure. Thick skin isn't standard equipment. Still, there are guys out there who will take that chance, sticking their toe in the pool to check the water. Will Taylor became one of those guys. Now you won't get him out of the deep end. If you ask him, the Williamsport native probably would admit he didn't dive into his opportunity.

Recently in class I was reviewing a grammar assignment with a teenage boy. His stance was indifferent, and I could tell that the material did not interest him. As I looked at his expression, I remembered how excited he was on the basketball court the previous evening. "Man, you had a great game last night," I said with a smile. In an instant his countenance changed. "Thanks," he said, with a sheepish grin. He seemed more willing to listen after that. Perhaps he sensed that I care.
