A love for lambs In like a lion and out like a lamb ... Have I told you how much I adore lambs? Just outside Funkstown on a small farm, just in the last few weeks, there has been an influx of baby lambs. They are fabulous to watch, and I take seeing them as a sure sign of the spring that is quickly on its way. I am convincing myself, as much as trying to assure you, that the recent snow and just downright icky weather is going to be short-lived. Play ball!

MARTINSBURG, W.Va. -- Benjamin Best doesn't remember anything that happened to him after about 6 p.m. on Feb. 13. He later learned he collapsed while playing video games with his 11-year-old stepdaughter, Victoria Moore, in his North Martinsburg home just before midnight, he said Wednesday, a day after returning home from the hospital. What happened next still amazes Best, 33, who still was awaiting results from tests to find out why he collapsed. He was told "Tori" called Berkeley County 911, then gave him CPR and mouth-to-mouth resuscitation while waiting for an ambulance to arrive.
