julieg@herald-mail.com Cars, clothes, music, college, to avoid boredom. These are some of the reasons local high school students work not just in the summer, but during the school year. Kyla Carbaugh, 16, of Hagerstown, has worked at the Bass store at Prime Outlets at Hagerstown since last Thanksgiving. "It gives you something to do during the afternoons. You always have that extra spending money," Kyla said. Kyla, who will be a senior at South Hagerstown High School, spends her earnings on school clothes, compact discs, her cell-phone bill and car insurance.

SHEPHERDSTOWN, W.Va. - A broken pipe fitting that flooded the gym floor at Shepherd College's Butcher Athletic Center has forced the school to change the site of two events and more are in question, a college spokesman said Wednesday. Water leaking from a sprinkler system that flooded the gym floor at the Butcher Athletic Center on Monday caused more damage late Tuesday or early Wednesday, forcing the athletic department to cancel a high school basketball tournament and change the site of a women's college game.

pepperb@herald-mail.com Danny Schultz's blue eyes twinkled as she talked about her favorite books, her favorite foods and her favorite subjects at school. But when the 17-year-old was not talking, she listened as her mother discussed the complications of the Boonsboro High School senior's disability. Sitting at the dining room table in the family's Keedysville home, Danny often looked down at her red velour sweater: Her eyes softened and her lip pouted when she wasn't biting it. Danny is autistic.

When I headed off to college 20 years ago this month, someone winked at me and said, "You'll miss your high school friends, but the ones you meet in college, you'll stay friends with them for life. " Sage words, I thought. Wrong words, I learned. I enjoyed four of the best years of my life at college and met some great people, including a few who I felt were my kindred spirits. Of the hundreds of fraternity brothers, classmates and other good friends I met at college, I keep in touch with hardly any of them.

For the past few months the mail deliveries that come to my home have brought a large assortment of brochures, catalogs and fliers from colleges around the country, all hoping that my son the honor student will pick them. I am proud, but a little bit sad at the same time. I'm proud because my son works hard to perform well, harder than I ever did at his age. I'm also sad because I know that when he goes on to college, I'll hear myself echoing the lament I've heard from so many other parents over the years.
