But most of all, he cured the Suns of amnesia. Hagerstown's center fielder jolted his team's memory with five hits, two RBIs and three defensive gems to lift the Suns to a 2-1 and 6-1 doubleheader sweep of the Charleston Alley Cats to end an eight-game losing streak.

COLLEGE PARK, Md. - It took all of 20 seconds for Kevin Barnes to become a celebrity. All it took was one hit and he became a rock star - with the emphasis on rock. The University of Maryland defensive back hit the top 10 charts with - and like - a bullet with one of those classic tackles that players live for, fans never forget and outlets like YouTube immortalize. The clock started on what has become more than 15 minutes of fame for Barnes last Saturday with 3:15 remaining in the first half as Maryland hosted California in an East vs. West standoff.

kevinc@herald-mail.com Sniffing his nose at some of the performances dotting the Concert for America televised Sept. 11, Doug LaBrecque nevertheless became spellbound as soprano Rene Fleming took the stage. "She takes the stage looking as beautiful as ever and sings 'You'll Never Walk Alone' and it was stunning," the veteran Broadway performer says. "A song like that is a masterpiece of a song and when it's sung with a 75-piece symphony rather than a 25-piece Broadway band, it takes it to another place.

bobp@herald-mail.com It's getting to be almost routine for Mike Ramsey. For the third straight year, Ramsey is the Hagerstown Suns manager putting his team through the "getting to know you" paces at Municipal Stadium. But on Tuesday, while much was the same, it felt a lot different. Ramsey will be in control of a different style of Suns team in 2004. In his first two seasons, Hagerstown was a pitching-enriched team. But when the new season starts on Thursday in Lexington, the Suns will be on the offensive.

By JULIE E. GREENE Staff Writer There was a man who juggled pingpong balls with his mouth and a woman who spun to the top of the big top by her hair, but it was the elephants that stole the show Friday night at the Kelly Miller Circus. "I like the elephants," said Megan Deckert, 3, who was snacking on a favorite elephant treat, peanuts. Megan was an experienced circus spectator compared with her grandmother, Mary Holder, 50, of Boonsboro. Holder was attending her first circus with her granddaughters, Megan and Kayla Payne, 2. Megan even rode an elephant at last year's circus.

ARLINGTON, Va. - Alex Ovechkin was given Wednesday off, an excused absence from practice that Washington Capitals coach Bruce Boudreau said had nothing to do with the "stinger" the league's reigning MVP got from a shoulder-first crash into the boards. "He's fine," Boudreau said. "I wanted to give him today off to rest. He's probably a little stiff, I would think, but, I mean, he's fine. And I asked him how his shoulder was. He says he's OK, no problem. " During Tuesday night's 3-2 loss at Boston, Ovechkin - who leads the NHL with 31 goals - hit the boards with his head and right shoulder, then remained motionless on the ice for about 15 seconds before rolling over and rubbing his face with his glove.

Movie review "Hairspray" is about fitting in, about teen rivalry, about discrimination. It's also a lot of fun. Bubbly Tracy (played by Nikki Blonsky), a plus-size teenager, wants to dance on The Corny Collins Show, a hip-swinging, good-time show for teenagers. But that's not her only goal. She also wants to be with the guy of her dreams, Link (Zac Efron), who is going out with the Corny Collins Show's main star, Amber (Brittany Snow). Tracy gets her break when there's an audition for the show.
