A Washington County food cooperative and a church near Boonsboro have formed a partnership to help each other grow. George Snyder, pastor of the Church at the Crossroads, said his congregation recently opened its doors to the Valley Co-op to give the blossoming organization more room to store and distribute food. “From what I've heard, they've grown in leaps and bounds,” Snyder said. “The co-op is a good way to advertise the church. It's a good partnership. It doesn't put us out and it gives them a better place.” Co-op volunteer Susan Simonson said the group has grown from six members in 2010 to 150 members today.

Cara Ferguson did a lot of everything for the Smithsburg softball team on Friday. The junior pitched a two-hit shutout with no walks and three strikeouts, and she had two hits, three RBIs and two runs scored to lead the Leopards to a 10-0 victory over Boonsboro in an MVAL Antietam game that was stopped after 4 1/2 innings because of the 10-run rule. Ferguson improved to 14-1 for the Leopards (14-1, 10-1). For the season, Ferguson has struck out 77 batters and has given up only 10 earned runs in 93 innings pitched for a sparkling 0.74 earned run average.

Perhaps it's no surprise that the Boonsboro football team has enjoyed a complete turnaround from its disappointing 2010 season. That turnaround was basically part of the players' school curriculum. Not long after the last school year ended in June, Boonsboro's returning players were - in a sense - hitting the books in an effort to put a 2-8 season well behind them. “We knew what it was like to lose,” said quarterback Ryan Ruiz. “It was a frustrating year and we didn't want to have another year like that.” The offseason work paid huge dividends for the Warriors, who won their first eight games and finished 9-1 to find their way back to the Maryland Class 1A West playoffs after a one-year absence.

Three naturally raised hens will lay about a dozen eggs or more a week — more in summer, less in winter. For many people, three hens in the backyard would fully supplant their need to buy factory-raised eggs from the supermarket. A hen will squawk when she's getting ready to lay, and chatter proudly after she has produced. Other than that, they're mostly quiet, unless alarmed. A hen will make far less noise than your average car-driving, lawn-mowing, music-playing, leaf-blowing, TV-blasting human.
