Fifteen-year-old Callie Hagerman scared the people in her team when she flew over the handlebars of her mountain bike Sunday during the Buff Betty Woman's Only Adventure Race at Greenbrier State Park. Hagerman, of Alexandria, Va., was coming down a hill when she squeezed hard on her hand brakes. The momentum caused her to flip over the bike and crash to the ground, causing a scrape to her arm. “It really wasn't bad,” Hagerman said at the finish line. Competitors were required to carry certain equipment with them, including a space blanket.

And along the path, he came across historical markers relating events that occurred on the canal during the Civil War. "Those iron markers created curiosity about what happened to the canal during the Civil War," Snyder said. "But I couldn't find more information. " Snyder's childhood curiosity and lifelong interest in local history eventually led him to write "Trembling in the Balance: The Chesapeake and Ohio Canal during the Civil War. " The book is a readable, carefully researched account of the importance of the canal to both sides in the Civil War. The book was published this year.
