NEW YORK (AP) -- They will read the names, of course, the names of every victim who died in the Sept. 11 attacks. The bells will ring. And then that moment of unity will give way to division as activists hoist signs and march, some for and some against a planned mosque two blocks from ground zero. This 9/11 is more political and contentious than the eight before it, with grieving family members on opposite sides of the mosque battle. The debate became so heated that President Barack Obama felt the need to remind Americans: "We are not at war against Islam.

BOONSBORO -- The bulb finally burned out in the old spotlight. Those star-quality names that Boonsboro has leaned on the last few years have finally graduated and been expunged from the roster. Branden McLean and Drew Lowery have gone the way of Tyler Walsh, Seth Poffenberger and the rest of the gang that helped the Warriors to some special seasons in the not-so-distant past. They have turned the keys of the locker room over to the next generation of Warriors, getting out of the way for them to make a name for themselves.

I'll be honest, when I saw the headline I wondered if maybe I was being set up. "Aleshire votes against wife's appointment. " From my perspective, too good to be true. A little TOO too good to be true. A county commissioner votes against his wife? Is the only commissioner of the five to vote against his wife? Has no visible frying pan marks on his dome when he shows up for work the next day? Color me suspicious. Usually, just about the time I start to sink my teeth into one of these stories it turns out to be a prank or an April Fool's joke, or something like that.

Judy Kerns is feeling anxious over her decision to retire this week after 40 years in Washington County's public school system. Mostly, she's worried about whether she will be bored, will she miss teaching and should she really give it up when she's still enjoying it so much? But also, she's worried about the economy and whether this is really the best time to give up the security of a good job. "I want to be able to do things when I retire. It takes money to travel, so will I be able to do that?"

The hardest part about "Lying in State" is that it challenges actors to be both silly and authentic. Go too far toward the silly side and you end up with an over-the-top political farce. But if your actors don't commit, you're left with a vapid comedy. Director Peggy Hardinge said the challenge was the reason she picked the play to close out the Potomac Playmakers' inaugural season at the Academy Theater Banquet & Conference Center. "I do feel like I know my comedy, and I feel like I can wrap my hands around these characters," Hardinge said.
