Winter left a few late memories Wednesday when an icy substance known as “graupel” fell across portions of Western Maryland, according to the National Weather Service. Graupel is formed when snow starts to evaporate when it is falling, but then picks up moisture as it nears the ground, said Stephen Konarik, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Sterling, Va. When graupel hits the ground, it looks like a pellet. But unlike sleet, which is clear, graupel is white, Konarik said.

Can we afford a baseball accord? A couple of weeks ago a nice reporter from CBS "Sportsline" called up to ask how Hagerstown's plans for a new minor league baseball stadium were progressing. He said he'd researched the story about a year ago, and wanted to see what had changed since then. After I stopped laughing I said "Not much. In fact, you could have researched this story five years ago and it would still be just as salient today as it would have been in 1995.

andrear@herald-mail.com THURMONT, Md. - The area that is now Catoctin Mountain Park in the northwest corner of Frederick County, Md., boasts an industrious, illustrious - and sometimes contentious - history. It was a hunting ground for American Indians and the homeplace of early settlers to Western Maryland; the site of bountiful resources for tanneries, sawmills, an iron furnace and other industries; a farming community in its high valleys; an early hot spot for tourists; a retreat for presidents; a training ground for spies; and a mecca for making moonshine.

tammyb@herald-mail.com The first thing to strike a visitor arriving at Trout Run is the soothing rush of the waters of Little Hunting Creek as they cascade over the rocks. It is striking because it's the only audible sound, even though busy U.S. 15 is only a mile away. The almost instant transformation from freeway interchange to primeval forest nearly takes one's breath away. The seclusion of the retreat has made Trout Run a favorite hideaway for a number of well-heeled visitors, including several U.S. presidents.

With world leaders on their way to Camp David for a Group of Eight summit, protesters trickled into nearby Thurmont to speak their minds. The movement started slowly Friday morning, with just two representatives of the Larouche Political Action Committee standing in the town square, advocating that President Barack Obama be removed from office. By noon, the ranks were growing, as members of Occupy movements had gathered in the Weis Markets parking lot to make signs and plan the rest of their day. Through it all, local, state and federal police were a constant presence through their patrols, working closely and cordially with Occupy groups, but watching out for more antagonistic protesters who have created havoc at past G-8 summits.
