It's always nice when people have a refreshing outlook on things. That's been the case this basketball season for Scott Kidd, who's seen two of the records he set at South Hagerstown High School in the late 1980s fall at the hands of David Miner. First, Miner broke Kidd's single-game scoring record of 47 points by scoring 50 on Jan. 6 against Boonsboro. Miner equaled that mark Tuesday against Clear Spring, setting him up to break another of Kidd's marks against Brunswick on Wednesday - South's career points total.

tarar@herald-mail.com The Washington County Planning Commission on Monday told a developer of Saint James Village North that he must comply with his original plan to provide two basketball courts, two tennis courts and nature trails among other amenities to residents of the development. The developer, David Lyles, proposed that the nature trails, a basketball court, a tennis court and other amenities be removed from the plan. Some of the amenities were proposed to be removed from the plan because they no longer were feasible to construct as the development's building stages progressed, according to a document from project consultant Frederick Seibert & Associates Inc. "Most of the changes really have to do with things that came up in construction," Stephen G. Zoretich of Frederick Seibert & Associates said during the meeting.

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.
