Trevor grins. It's his turn. His friends and parents cheer "GO TREVOR!" He is here, at the Long Meadow bowling alley, every Saturday morning. Dedicated and determined to do his best. With two hands Trevor carefully selects the best of the brown speckled bowling balls from the return rack. The highly polished bowling alley makes the ten small duckpins look as if they are miles away. But, to this 17-year-old bowling athlete the thought of watching the white bottled shaped pins fall and crash from his toss keeps him focused and smiling.

HAGERSTOWN -- Frank Turner closed one of his four local bowling alleys on Monday. Long Meadow Bowl has been open on Leitersburg Pike since 1961, he said. "For a lot of people, this was a home," he said. Turner said the decline of 9 p.m. bowling leagues nationwide helped cut into business. He said the remaining league bowlers at Long Meadow Bowl have moved to other Turner alleys. Turner also owns Dual Lanes on Dual Highway, Southside Bowl on Virginia Avenue and Pikeside Bowl near Martinsburg, W.Va.

CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - Sherry Harbel of St. Thomas bowled with a very special teammate Saturday, her "little sister," Ashley, 10. Harbel, a secretary, has been a "big sister" since November, and meets with Ashley once a week to go bowling, shopping or out to eat. Ashley, a Chambersburg fourth-grader, said she likes to go to Harbel's house and go shopping. Harbel and Ashley were matched up through the Big Brothers/Big Sisters program of Franklin County. They bowled with two other teammates at Nellie Fox Bowl at the Big Brothers/Big Sisters Bowl for Kids' Sake fund-raiser.

bobp@herald-mail.com COLLEGE PARK, Md. - Sometimes perfect isn't perfect. In another time, another place, University of Maryland football coach Ralph Friedgen would be ecstatic about the progression of the Terrapins this season. Words like "progress," "improving," "playing hard," "proud" and "effort" dotted Friedgen's comments when speaking about the team during his weekly media conference. Many coaches would give their practice whistle to say all those glowing comments.

HAGERSTOWN karenh@herald-mail.com Amid the shouting, towel waving and hoopla of the Pittsburgh Steelers playoff game, two customers on bar stools soberly carved out time for Football 102. For any nonfootball fans in the partisan crowd Sunday at Ground Round, Gloria Coyle shared one lesson she's already learned about the sport: "You might wind up getting into football, too. Hope you don't wait till you're 55, like I did. Now I...

By its way of thinking, the North Hagerstown football team hasn't had the Gridiron Classic trophy long enough. South Hagerstown, on the other hand, has just plain had enough. "We're saying now, 'It's our turn,'" South coach Greg Kellick said. "They've had the thing over there five years. Five years is enough. Now it's time to bring it back over and start the string over here. " The Rebels get their opportunity tonight when they play host to the Hubs at School Stadium in the 52nd meeting of Hagerstown's two high school football teams.

The Super Bowl is two weeks away, and it is going to be interesting: the Indianapolis Colts and the Chicago Bears. The Colts have advanced to their third Super Bowl since 1970. The last Super Bowl the Colts won was as the Baltimore Colts in Super Bowl V against the Dallas Cowboys. The score for that game was 16-13. This will be Colts quarterback Peyton Manning's first Super Bowl appearance, and he earned it. The New England Patriots played hard, and they were ahead 21-3 in the second quarter.

HAGERSTOWN - It was Super Bowl Sunday and kickoff was minutes away, but 26-year-old Tony Towne was in no hurry as he browsed Blockbuster's family section with his daughters. "I have other priorities, like spending time with my kids," said Towne, who said he hasn't followed football since enlisting in the Army in 2000. In opting not to tune in to what has long been the country's highest-rated TV program of the year, Towne joined millions of Americans who break the mold by spending Super Bowl Sunday engaged in something other than the big game.
