WASHINGTON COUNTY - It cost $8 on Friday to get into the Washington County Ag Expo. The night's most anticipated event, the demolition derby, lasted about that many minutes, prompting a few in the crowd to boo and contemplate asking for refunds. "That's the sorriest excuse for a demolition derby I've ever seen," a man in the parking lot said after the derby, which lasted less than 10 minutes. Six cars entered the derby - compared to 17 last year. Because of a rule change, only four-cylinder, compact cars were allowed to enter, demolition derby coordinator Lisa Bragunier said.

Ted Anderson spent the night of Oct. 15, 1986, crammed into a room with seven other cops in an out-of-the-way Virginia hotel. One officer spent the night in a bathtub and several lay on the floor. Anderson didn't sleep at all. Early the next morning, a Thursday, a caravan of about 100 police vehicles - including Anderson's - made its way up Interstate 81 into Martinsburg, where the largest drug bust in the town's history took place as most of the dealers were still sleeping.

HAGERSTOWN Spoken over the growl of powerful engines, the words of one Hagerstown race car driver drifted into a strong wind. Alan Sagi, a 42-year-old veteran, was looking for a little Opening Day magic Sunday at Hagerstown Speedway. "I've won on Opening Day three times. I'd like to make it four today," Sagi said. Two divisions of cars raced on the dirt track west of the city. Outside the gates, hundreds of spectators' cars and trucks bore plates from near and far. Stan Dillon, who handles publicity for the track, estimated that about 1,200 people came to see the first races of the year.

When I'm sitting in the dentist's chair, my main objective is to try to stay alive. It takes all my concentration, so I'm usually not terribly conscious of extraneous conversations or events. However, as I was having my teeth cleaned, I heard Taryn, the pickmaster general, mention something about a "Stale Green. " At first I thought she was talking about something she found on my teeth. But it turned out it had something to do with traffic patterns, which immediately distracted me from the chiseling, since human driving behavior is a topic close to my heart.
