By KERRY LYNN FRALEY Staff Writer It might not be as quick or dazzling as the stock on the computer store shelves. Still, that older equipment could be perfectly fine for your needs, said Hagerstown resident Buck Lam. "The myth that a lot of people have is that when they want to get a computer, they have to get the best or what's in the stores. Depending on what you want to use it for, you could get away with what they call a boat anchor," said Lam, 32, a local radio broadcaster who started tinkering with computers 51/2 years ago. Lam is hoping to dispel that costly myth through a new nonprofit organization offering free computer answers, advice and equipment to Washington County area residents.

kauffman@herald-mail.com It seems I have a habit of getting teams fired up with my rankings. This school year is the first I've been responsible for placing our area high school volleyball and basketball teams into weekly top-10 lists. It's been an adventure. In volleyball, Williamsport, Hedgesville, Smithsburg and Thomas Johnson were the four best teams. The Eagles got the No. 1 nod in our first rankings, which I followed up with a column stating that any of the four would be worthy of the top spot.

I enjoy teaching exchange students who have come here from other countries. It is interesting to see our culture through the eyes of someone who was raised in an environment totally different from our own. Recently an exchange student asked me why we use the word "merry" with Christmas but "happy" with every other holiday. His question brought back a fourth-grade memory. I was helping my teacher prepare a fall bulletin board. She had the letters for "Happy Thanksgiving" spread out across a desk in a perfect arch.

New 'Panhandle Access Network' plan advanced CHARLES TOWN, W.Va. - A television producer appeared before the Jefferson County Commission last week to propose the development of a public access channel that would feature local programming. Jefferson County already has a public access channel, but most of the programming relates to Frederick County, Md., said Craig Shibley, an independent producer who lives near Hedgesville. The commission has the right to seek more local programming for the channel, which is channel 10 on the GS Communications cable system, Shibley said.

I don't know whether it's true or not, but a former colleague once told me that Del. Joe Bartlett's office had a sign on the bulletin board that said "Think. " Guess he took down the sign. Bartlett, a Frederick County Republican, has taken heat this month for an arrangement where he paid rent to his Annapolis girlfriend, with whom he roomed during the previous three-plus legislative sessions. Well, to clarify: You and I paid rent to Bartlett's girlfriend, since the delegate charged the state more than $30,000 for the living arrangement.

Fans of Jim Carrey will be happy to know that the star has finally returned to straight-up comedy. One of the biggest (heck, the biggest) comedic stars of the 90s, Carrey has spent the last several years trying to expand the range of his filmography. He's done a franchise piece ("The Grinch"), a biopic ("Man on the Moon"), a weirdo indie film ("Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind") and one very ill-advised thriller ("The Number 23"). But now he's back to what brought him to the dance: acting like he's out of his mind for our entertainment.
