The turkey's been picked over, the pumpkin pie is on ice and soon, I will be, too. Yes folks, my football season is quickly coming to a close. If I'm reading the stars correctly, I should have one more installment of bulletin board material to write next week. Of course, all but one of the local high school teams are finished playing, so nobody's exactly scrambling to find the thumb tacks to post this in the locker room. At any rate, it's almost time for me to star in my version of "The Big Sleep.

Cougars aim for last laugh again The Smithsburg girls didn't say anything to become bulletin-board material at Catoctin. Their actions on the court - 10 wins against the Cougars in the 3 1/2 seasons - were enough. And now, with the Monocacy Valley Athletic League race on the line, the Leopards know they'll need the last word again when they play tonight in Thurmont. "We know they're gunning for us and we know how good they are," Powell said. "They play as hard, if not harder than anyone in the league.

The game of basketball has evolved over the years. In the past, talk on the court really wasn't necessary. Now, it seems required. And that's fine for the most part.

But on Sunday, about 150 people filled the school's auditorium to celebrate their heritage and rally as a community. "I'm surprised to see it go through this time," said senior Montez Anderson, who delivered a speech written by Martin Luther King Jr. "I'm proud.

Being out and about is simply the "norm" these days. Rain or shine, practically a third of each day is spent outside of the home. What returns indoors with us can be a problem, however. Did you know that as much as 85 percent of the contaminants in your home got there via your family and you? Healthy and green living experts suggest stopping dirt, germs and other contaminants at the door. Not exactly sure how?

When Sharee O'Haver, 61, of Funkstown, hears music she just can't help but move. And it's actually that love of music and dance that in a roundabout way has led to her career as member services director for Hagerstown's YMCA. When O'Haver moved to Hagerstown from California 35 years ago, she had two small children in tow. She said she was looking for something that had to do with dance. "Dance had been my life," she said, sitting in her YMCA office. "I took tap, jazz, Hawaiian and ballet.
