Clear Spring is accepting bids for its garbage collection contract through Feb. 10. The town council agreed Monday to put its next three-year garbage contract up for bid early. Town Clerk Juanita Grimm said the contract will not take effect until the next fiscal year, which starts July 1. Obtaining bids early allows the council more time to consider potential contractors and recycling. Mayor Paul D. Hose Jr. said the package asks companies to include a line item in their bids for recycling services.

In baseball, it’s all about the teamwork. And that’s what mattered most for Clear Spring pitcher Ajay Yost. “I won because I had my teammates behind me,” Yost said. “It was all because of them.” Yost struck out eight without walking a batter in five innings, and Clear Spring eliminated Halfway from the Maryland District 1 10-11 Tournament with a 5-4 victory. Clear Spring earned a trip to Valley tonight at 6 for the championship round. Clear Spring will have to beat Valley tonight and again Saturday to win the title.

When Clear Spring unloads its bats, it unloads with commitment. The Blazers went the five-inning route on Wednesday, slamming out 13 hits on the way to a 15-2 victory over Smithsburg in the MVAL Antietam Conference. Five players had two hits each as the Blazers (10-6, 7-6) highlighted the night with an eight-run third inning. Dylan Stouffer and Jared Brant each had two hits, including a home run, and Nick Hill, Adam Mellott and Hunter Fiddler each had a pair of hits. “We've been making the swings like we need, attacking the baseball and being positive,” said Clear Spring coach Mark Shives.

Like those in most other municipalities across Washington County, Clear Spring officials Monday night acknowledged the federal nutrient-reduction targets aimed at cleaning up the Chesapeake Bay, but called the estimated $1.3 million price tag for suggested improvements financially unfeasible. Clear Spring Town Council members in June reviewed a list of potential projects that the town could undertake as part of Phase 2 improvements in the county's Watershed Implementation Plan, or WIP, that would attempt to reduce the amount of nitrogen and phosphorous that makes its way to the bay by 2025.

It took little time for a fresh South Hagerstown team to beat down a tired opponent. The Rebels caught Clear Spring on the rebound of Monday’s three-overtime affair against Hancock and went down easy street to an 83-43 MVAL Antietam victory Tuesday. “With the game (Clear Spring) had on Monday, I can imagine it would be hard to come back right away,” said South coach Kevin Naylor. The Blazers carved out an 80-72 win over Hancock, but on Tuesday coach Ryan Grabill said it was a different story.

A young Clear Spring baseball team saw a window of opportunity and made the most of jumping through it on Monday in the season opener against Hancock. The Blazers, handcuffed through four innings, pushed across three runs in the fifth inning to claim a 4-2 victory over Hancock. “We looked like nine deer in the headlights going everywhere to start the game,” said Clear Spring coach Mark Shives. “(Hancock pitcher Hunter McKinley) gave us a window and I was impressed that we worked through it.” McKinley, a sophomore right-hander, blanked the Blazers on one hit through four innings before opening the fifth by hitting Tyler Walling and Austin Yost with pitches.

Donna Mongan had a good feeling about the spaghetti dinner benefit she was planning. Chairwoman of the missions committee at St. Paul's Reformed Church in Clear Spring, Mongan led the effort to support 17-year-old Ciara Ortiz of Clear Spring, who is struggling with medical treatment for a paralyzed stomach. Even before the benefit dinner even took place, people exhibited a caring spirit toward Ciara. When Mongan went to the grocery store to buy spaghetti, the cashier commented on the quantity she was buying.
