Bryce Harper learned the hard way that you can’t hit what you can’t see. Harper had been experiencing problems hitting consistently for the Hagerstown Suns. Now he sees why ... with 20-20 vision. Harper, the top prospect in the Washington Nationals organization, admitted he had a little problem seeing the ball. On April 20 against Hickory, he began making contact because he started wearing contacts. “I was told my vision was really bad,” said Harper, who hit his first Municipal Stadium home run in his first at-bat April 21 against Hickory.

By KAREN MASTERSON Staff Writer MERCERSBURG, Pa. - There was more than sunshine, cool breezes and scattered clouds in the atmosphere this Father's Day. Roughly 200,000 amateur radio operators were transmitting signals just below the ionosphere, trying to make contact with as many other amateurs as possible, and from as far away as their equipment allowed. Three such "hams" were on top of Whitetail Ski Resort participating in a 33-hour competition organized by the American Radio Relay League.

Q. My computer runs on Windows Vista Premium and I use Windows Mail for e-mail. I am having an issue with e-mail contacts not being recognized when I type the first letter of a person's name or e-mail address. They are listed in my contacts; I can select them manually from the address book. A. There have been complaints that Windows Mail, the successor to Outlook Express featured in the Vista operating system, doesn't do this "auto-complete" function as smoothly as Outlook Express did. Users are finding that only the last 13 to 26 addresses they've typed in are available for auto-complete, not the entire list of contacts.

It feels as though the house is a booby trap. When you turn on the dining room light, the telephone line hums. The attic ceiling drips when it rains, the painters painted the window shut, the downstairs toilet will not stop running and the upstairs toilet will not stop rocking. The stove burner burned out, the pantry door pops open spontaneously, and you have caulked the cracked garbage disposal and rubber banded the drop guard on the refrigerator door shelf for the gazillionth time.

Demolition of all but one large building on a former industrial property on Pangborn Boulevard was completed in 2012, but large piles of rubble remain on the land adjacent to Pangborn Park. Several piles are in the open on the largely vacant tract at 580 Pangborn Blvd., and another clump of debris is piled up along a retaining wall that separates the property from a nearby apartment building on Lynnehaven Drive. Kathleen A. Maher, manager of the city's Planning and Code Administration Division, said in a recent email that the demolition began in 2011 and wrapped up in late 2012.

I never fared terribly well with eyeglasses. I was amazed at how crisp the world looked when I first got them in the third grade. But all that clarity kind of gave me a headache and made me a little dizzy. Just days after I got the oversize smoky purple beauties, a large, bouncing, eraser-colored kickball sailed across the echoing gymnasium in gym class and thumped me in the eye. I wobbled back, trying to maintain my balance, as a lens popped from the frame and I ended up with a shiner that left my brothers referring to me as Muhammad Ali. For months, I would remove my glasses when I ate. I felt like they were after my food.

Curious about the footwear of the British monarch, a kindergarten class at Bester Elementary School in Hagerstown wrote a letter to Queen Elizabeth II. The class wrote the letter as part of its Around the World project. The queen did not reply, but her lady-in-waiting did. “We wanted to see if she ever wears sneakers,” said kindergarten student Angel Lease of Hagerstown. “She does wear them.” The queen's lady-in-waiting's response included a picture of Queen Elizabeth astride a horse.
