She jumps on the trampoline When I hear the word "mother," I think of a woman helping me bake cookies and cakes. I have fun with her when we jump on the trampoline or when we wash the cars. I love to ride bikes with Mom. I love to help Mom around the house. Like setting the table and vacuuming. I like Mom because she is my best friend. - Teri Keller, 7, Hagerstown

pepperb@herald-mail.com Even though his old spray-painted Nissan Sentra's trunk was crushed inches from his head and its rear tires spun feet from the ground, Darron Hamrick sludged, spun and smashed the tiny wreck into cars twice its size. And then went up in a ball of smoke. "I tried," Hamrick said and smiled, after crawling through the car's windshield space. Hamrick was one of 17 drivers Friday night who competed for a grand prize of $500 in the Washington County Ag Expo's annual Demolition Derby.

HAGERSTOWN Adler Garrett had just had a minor victory, although there were plenty of trials to pass in the coming rounds of racing on Saturday. Garrett, 10, a member of Cub Scout Pack 14 based in Smithsburg, was among more than 100 contenders in this year's annual Pinewood Derby, held by the Mason-Dixon Council of the Boy Scouts of America, which serves Washington County, and Franklin and Fulton counties in Pennsylvania. A Pinewood Derby is a race of handmade cars that, in Saturday's case, may weigh no more than 5 ounces.

Dear Tom and Ray: My boyfriend is a great guy, but is prone to procrastination (or so his family has warned me). It's come to my attention, as I try to find a spot to park when I visit his home, that he is accumulating LOTS of cars. Here's the inventory of vehicles: a VW bus, two Saabs, an Isuzu Rodeo, a Subaru Forester, his Subaru Legacy, an engine for the Rodeo sitting in the garage and a BMW R1100RT motorcycle (largely disassembled for a transmission repair) in the garage. All of the cars in the driveway are in various stages of repair, and some of these are project cars that he hopes to sell, if he can get them running.

Anthony Colin Bruce Chapman lived by only one rule in life: "Simplicate first, then add what you want after," he once said. Simplicate. It was Chapman's own term for making things as easy as possible on yourself. Don't overdo it. You'll only end up complicating things more than you need to. Chapman, generally considered once of the most brilliant minds in the history of the auto industry, took the meaning to heart. He came from a simple existence. His father was a hotel manager and the family lived a relatively frugal existence in England during the 1920s.

MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - It could be several days before railroad officials know the cause of a CSX freight car derailment in Martinsburg early Friday morning, a CSX spokesman said. Train traffic was expected to resume as early as this morning. A 48-car freight train carrying new Ford trucks, newsprint and metallic ore broke in half near the Queen Street overpass, causing 15 of the cars to derail and collide with each other behind Williamsport Avenue. One of the cars carrying the trucks sat in a crumpled pile of wreckage that included parts of train cars and iron ore spilled on the tracks.

"Don't tell anybody about this," one man said as he piled ice cubes on the engine block. The last of the engine's coolant had just gurgled and hissed away and the radiator was in no shape to hold any more.
