HAGERSTOWN -- They spent weeks, side by side, carving a block of wood into a sleek racing machine. But the true moment of bonding between parent and son took place when that car shot down a sloping four-lane aluminum track. This is where their handiwork would be tested. They had attached big dreams to this small car -- and hopefully, they would go home winners. But whatever the outcome, Cub Scout and father were in this together. Pinewood Derby mania hit the gymnasium of North Hagerstown High School Saturday morning.

A new Boy Scouts troop has started in Funkstown. Troop 23 has six young men who will undertake the challenge of a lifetime in starting the new troop. Unlike Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts is a youth-run organization. The adventure will teach them leadership skills, strengthen their civic support and mold them into model citizens, all while having fun with many outdoor activities. The last long-running troop in Funkstown was Troop 123, which ran from the early 1960s until 1985.
