By GREG SIMMONS / Staff Writer photo: RIC DUGAN / staff photographer WILLIAMSPORT - The CAM Corp. could have paid for food, transportation and lodging for the 700 cyclists it brought to Williamsport Wednesday. Instead it gave Teri Leiter a check for $8,000 to take care of the cyclists' needs, and promised her a second check for the same amount once the bicyclists left town after a two-night stay. Leiter, owner of Leiter's Fine Catering in Williamsport, said that after expenses, she expects to raise $10,000 for the Williamsport High School Blue Band through CAM's Carrollton Bank Cycle Across Maryland Tour.

The world-famous Harlem Globetrotters are coming again to Hagerstown Community College. The touring basketball team will play at the college's Athletic, Recreation and Community Center at 7 p.m. March 2. They performed at the college in March 1998 and agreed to come back, said HCC Hawk Boosters President Todd McDowell. As was the case in 1998, the booster club is sponsoring the Globetrotters game. The event is a fund-raiser for the school's athletic scholarships. "It was a very fun evening," McDowell said of the 1998 event, which he said drew a sellout crowd of about 2,700 people.

bobp@herald-mail.com Nobody really said it, but it might take three people to replace Jim Brown at Hagerstown Community College. Brown retired on Tuesday as basketball coach, athletic director and director of HCC's athletic complex, all positions he has held for at least 14 years. Because the demand of each job is increasingly demanding, HCC dean of students Carl Galligan said there is a chance of separating the positions. But out of the three, finding a new basketball coach tops the priorities.

When Shana Brown was a little girl, going to the circus was something the family did every year. But she never enjoyed a day under the big top more than she did in May 1988 when, as the winner of a Herald-Mail coloring contest, she got a chance to wear clown make-up and actually show off for the audience at that year's performance of the Clyde-Beatty Cole Brothers Circus at the Hagerstown Fairgrounds. She was just 7 then, and never thought that the circus would be anything but a nice outing with her family.

andrews@herald-mail.com The answer was right there in the book of Genesis. "Eureka!" Jim Brown said, and he went off to build the ARCC. The crowd assembled to salute Brown laughed at Richard W. Phoebus' clever comparison of Brown's ARCC - the Athletic, Recreation and Convocation Center at Hagerstown Community College - and Noah's ark. "Let me tell you - this dwarfs Noah's job," Phoebus said. Brown, who served many years as the men's basketball coach, athletic director and head athletic complex administrator at HCC, retired last year.

In the early 1980s, a group of community members with a passion for athletics at Hagerstown Junior College started a booster club, a club that became one of the most successful community college fundraising organizations in the region. “We did our job for 30 years,” said Jim Brown, past president of the HCC Hawk Booster Club. “We're the most successful booster club that we know of, up and down the East Coast.” With the help of the HCC Hawk Booster Club's support, athletics on the small campus began to thrive, en route to winning numerous President's Cup awards throughout the years that followed.

bobp@herald-mail.com To Mark Mosely, it's all about the roar. To Gary Clark, it's all about opportunity. But each of the former star Washington Redskins was sure of one thing: The effort North Hagerstown is making to build Mike Callas Stadium is all about the kids and the community in which they live. Mosely and Clark were part of a 122-player field competing in the first North Hagerstown Boosters Golf Tournament Monday at Black Rock Golf Course. And though neither the former kicker nor wide receiver have no ties to this area, helping the cause was far too important to pass up. "I want to thank you for caring about your community," said Mosely, who played 16 seasons, including 13 with the Redskins.
