This year's Landmarks contest might not be a walk in the park. But it might be like a stroll in the garden. A garden of clues, that is. The Herald-Mail's 15th annual Landmarks contest is set in Funkstown this year, and all clues are plant related. Identify the answers to our 10 clues and you might win $300. As in years past, this year's clues are closeup photos of buildings or structures. All clues are visible from public sidewalks or streets in the city of Funkstown (for boundaires, see map)

The Herald-Mail's ninth annual landmarks contest continues. Ten clues were published in the Lifestyle sections of The Herald-Mail, The Daily Mail and The Morning Herald last week. To clarify: Although the ironwork that is clue No. 8 resembles a gate, it is not actually a gate. Clue No. 1 has been disqualified from the contest because it does not meet the criteria for contest clues. Contestants only need to identify nine photographic clues for recognizable spots in Hagerstown.

We have a $500 reason for you to check out downtown Hagerstown. That's the prize for The Herald-Mail's ninth annual landmarks contest. Through Friday, we will publish photographic clues for recognizable spots in Hagerstown. The 10 clues can be spotted within three blocks north, south, east or west of Hagerstown's Public Square. They are not historic landmarks, but they are relatively distinct parts of the downtown area. We will publish close-up images of buildings, structures, walls, gates - just about anything that's a fixture - in the designated part of Hagerstown.

Jeffrey Rowland's body was found on Nov. 15, 2002. Ali Aubae Robinson was found dead on Oct. 21, 2004. Winnie Gelvin died on Jan. 13, 2005. All three deaths have been ruled homicides, and all three cases remain unsolved. But they have not gone cold. At this point, there are no solid clues that could help investigators make an arrest in any of the cases, said Lt. Mark Knight of the Washington County Sheriff's Department, the agency investigating the deaths. Knight, supervisor of the department's criminal investigations division, said investigators still get tips on the homicides, but none substantial enough to lead to an arrest.

If we have our way here at The Herald-Mail, the streets of Hagerstown will be a little more crowded in the coming weeks. It's almost time for the eighth annual landmarks contest. Each year, clues are published in the newspaper, and contestants test their knowledge of the city in a scavenger-hunt mode. Participants have to get out and really see the downtown area to spot photographic clues. Last year's contest drew some readers outdoors with clipboards and a load of determination.

We asked for two things last week in Lifestyle - read The Herald-Mail and get out to really see Hagerstown. For the seventh annual landmarks contest, we raised the stakes. Contestants needed to check out six newspapers for all the clues. In return, the winner will receive $500, up from $100 in 2002. We published photographic clues from buildings and structures throughout Hagerstown. All clues are visible from the street. They are not historic landmarks, but they are relatively distinct parts of the downtown area.

Turns out, winning The Herald-Mail's 17th annual Landmarks Contest really was a walk in the park for three women from Hagerstown. A walk and a drive. And lots of fun. The winners of the contest are Tia Taylor, her mother-in-law, Dena French, and Taylor's 12-year-old daughter, Destiny Taylor.  This year's contest was set in City Park in Hagerstown. The Herald-Mail published 10 close-up photos of elements of buildings or structures in the park. Participants searched for the clues and identified the landmarks.
