The Potomac Center gets state funding for its services for intellectually disabled clients, but center officials say they continually have to go to the community to raise money for all their clients' needs. Hearing aids, literacy training and transportation services are among the needs that must be met through fundraising, said Lisa Lynn, volunteer coordinator for the Potomac Center on Marshall Street. The annual Leap Out of Cabin Fever event was held at Cortland Mansion Sunday afternoon to raise money for the center, which serves about 58 clients.

This is the winter of Ruth Murphy's discontent. With month after month of snow, ice and frigid temperatures, the 75-year-old woman is having trouble staying positive. But it wasn't always that way. There was a time when Murphy enjoyed brisk weather, sledding with her children and family ski trips. But age, failing eyesight and arthritis have changed her lifestyle. Instead of taking to the outdoors, she takes to her house. "With health problems, I feel safer staying put,"  Murphy said.

Cabin fever? Does winter give you cabin fever? Is there really such a thing? Cabin fever is a well-known phenomenon, says Ron Pike, a social worker at the Mental Health Center in Hagerstown. "Just ask the people who are dumb enough to live in Michigan," he jokes. Seasonal affective disorder - SAD - is something that has been getting more attention in recent years, Pike says. He thinks that people who are predisposed to being anxious and depressed are more likely to suffer from this winter ill. It really is important that people know that SAD does happen and be proactive if they feel themselves becoming more depressed day after day. Some of the symptoms are a change in your eating and sleeping habits, being irritable or sad without a specific triggering event, and having recurring bouts of sadness during the winter, when is dark outside for more hours of the day. Tips for getting glad: remain active.

Officials at the Potomac Center say it is important to get intellectually disabled residents at the facility out in the community. Residents are taken to movies, restaurants and stores as part of an effort to help them return to life in society. But finding dependable transportation for the residents can be difficult, said Lisa Lynn, volunteer coordinator at the Potomac Center on Marshall Street. Center officials struggle with vehicle breakdowns. Two vehicles had to be towed from the center in the last two years because they weren't worth repairing, according to Lynn and Cathy Marshall, chief executive officer of the Potomac Center.

For the past couple of years, the combination of harsh winter weather and playoff football always seems to bring this question to my mind: Who is the president of shepherd's pie? I also know of at least two other people who'd probably still like to know who really is in charge of this dish. If you're hosting a Super Bowl dinner, maybe you'd like to know, too. Ravens vs. Steelers. Beef vs. lamb. Those were the matchups on a snowy Sunday afternoon three winters ago as I sat parked behind a lager draft and a basket of pretzels on a bar stool in Carlisle, Pa. On one side of me was a loud Ravens fan. On the other side, a loud Steelers fan. As the action heated up on the television above us, so did those guys' feelings for each other.

When Bobby Parker drops names, it's like a who's who of rock 'n' roll royalty. Buddy Holly, Sam Cooke, Bo Diddley, The Big Bopper. Parker knew them all. He was a “guitarist for hire”  back in the 1950s, he said, performing with many of the people who gave birth to a new era in music. He eventually made his own mark in the industry, particularly in 1961 when his rhythm and blues classic “Watch Your Step” became a Billboard hit. It was a song famous for its creative guitar riffs - the same riffs that John Lennon later admitted The Beatles had borrowed for their song “I Feel Fine.” But The Beatles weren't the only musicians influenced by Parker's talent.

Moales, 81, and his wife, Jean Moales, of Hagerstown, were among about 80 people who purchased tickets to the festival, event chairman Greg Hoover said.
