Vicky Bullett isn't much for labels. There are a lot of descriptions that will be cropping up as Bullett takes over as Hagerstown Community College's women's basketball coach, replacing Marlys Palmer who retired after 32 years on the job. The only thing that “new” and “change” mean to Bullett is the team's uniforms, and “transition” is the style of play she will be teaching. The significance is a little more basic. “I'm really excited,” Bullett said. “When I saw the players coming in, it's going to be different.

HAGERSTOWN -- It's not something you would typically find in a church. But there it was, a rock show Sunday night at Covenant Life Church International on Dual Highway. Concert lights were erected over the pews while two electric guitar players, a bass player, lead singer and a drummer delivered a heavy, driving sound in their own rendition of tunes from Van Halen, Joan Jett, the Rolling Stones and other groups. The Christian rock group ApologetiX played to about 150 people at the local church, taking classic rock 'n' roll songs and changing the lyrics to deliver religious messages.

Former TV sitcom star Kirk Cameron attempted to rid a Maryland Theatre audience of "Seaver Fever" on Friday night before delving into a more serious discussion about marriage and faith. Known as the lovable teenager Mike Seaver on the 1980s TV sitcom "Growing Pains," Cameron had the crowd of about 900 people sing the show's theme song to help "transport" him back to 1986 so he could recite a few of his lines from six years of the show in 60 seconds. In retrieving a bit of his teenage character's voice from the show, Cameron had the crowd laughing and hopefully forgetting his past television persona.
