View the "Senior Bowling" slideshow. As soon as you open the door you hear it - the unmistakable sound of balls rumbling down a lane and exploding into a flash of white. There's laughter and applause and the hum of pins reloading. It's the soundtrack of any bowling alley - a reminder of how much fun this sport can be. And on this particular day, more than 80 bowlers are having the time of their lives. Every Wednesday afternoon, 24 teams arrive at Long Meadow Bowl in Hagerstown for a little exercise, a little competition and a whole lot of socialization.

My name is Anais (pronounced on-uh-EES). I'm 19 and I study at the French School of Journalism and Communication, a special high school based in Paris. To improve my English and to discover how American companies work, I came to America and worked as a volunteer in the University System of Maryland at Hagerstown. For one month, I have lived in Hagerstown with Amy and Barry Newlin and their daughters, Sally, 17, and Marilyn, 14. They are a very nice host family. They seem very close.

A bowling alley with no smoke? A bowling alley with no sports jerseys? A bowling alley with no greasy burgers or pitchers of beer? What's the point? This is one of those cases where you're happy that new trends hit Hagerstown about two decades after they have ceased to be trendy anywhere else. Because frankly, I do not believe we are ready for what is being dubbed "boutique bowling. " Boutique bowling, according to a story last week in the Washington Post, is a Jackie O. twist on a Jack Daniels sport.

By late afternoon, more than half of the building was lying in a pile of twisted steel, broken cement blocks and smashed wood.

Main St., Chuck's Sunoco at 402 E. Main St. and the former Waynesboro Family Billiards at 406 E. Main St., a building that over the years has housed a bowling alley and a teenage nightclub.

It seems we're always celebrating some child's birthday, be it in our family, at church or at school. My children love the gift-buying process. I tell them to select something they would like and to imagine how much fun their friends will have playing with it. The day of the party, they wake up asking how much longer it will be until we can go. The excitement continues to build as we arrive at the festivities. The children go off together, and the adults mingle. A child's birthday party seems to bring out the best of that creativity gene all parents suddenly develop when they are first handed a bundle of joy. Some parents opt for at-home parties, others choose child-friendly restaurants, play places designed expressly for this purpose, or other activity-based businesses.
