SMITHSBURG - Clear Spring's boys basketball team came to Smithsburg Tuesday and brought with them some painful memories to the Leopards. It wasn't all that long ago that Smithsburg was riding an unbearably long losing streak - much like the Blazers have right now. It was a time when the monkey on the Leopards' back felt like King Kong. So with Clear Spring putting up a fight in the first half, Smithsburg became motivated to become diamond cutters with a quick start in the third quarter to put away a diamond in the rough in a 69-47 victory to extend the Blazers' losing streak to 25 games.

For Danielle Hose, Aug. 4, 2010, was a memorable day. In a boat on a lake near Big Pool, the 22-year-old Williamsport native was fishing with Joseph Siler Jr., her boyfriend of about three years, something they had done many times before. But this time was different. Instead of hooking a largemouth bass or bluegill from the waters below, Siler, 23, reeled in his future wife. “I stood up (in the boat) to get something and he turned around in his seat with the ring box,” Hose said.

He took his memories of the holiday to Municipal Stadium on Saturday, starting the first Dublin at the Diamond, a celebration of the holiday and Irish culture. “I've always been a big fan of St. Patrick's Day, but I grew up in a very Greek household,” he said. “Three-hundred sixty-four days a year, we were all Greek all the time, but my mom was Irish.” Changuris and his wife, Jennifer, were in charge of Saturday's event.

Chicago dyes its river green, New York and Boston compete for the best parade and Kansas City, Mo., starts the day with an Irish Mass, followed by a grand procession through the streets and an annual food drive called "Go for the Green.

Williamsport — trying to reverse its fortunes from the past two years — can make a name for itself among the Class 1A ranks today when it hosts Catoctin in a key MVAL Antietam matchup. Currently at 5-2 and on a four-game winning streak, the Wildcats have not lost since a 5-3 setback to Catoctin on March 28. They also own a 24-13 decision over Clear Spring and a 7-7 tie with South Hagerstown that has yet to be concluded officially in the standings.

I still get this complaint every so often, as does pretty much everyone who works here, I imagine: "You guys over at The Herald-Mail are just trying to sell newspapers. " I always tell them, "Oh no, no, no ... No. Selling newspapers is the furthest thing from our minds. Really. See, we in the newspaper industry are of the sincere opinion that the nation's landfills are in critical need of extra mass, so we are merely manufacturing the bulkiest product we can think of in order to address the shortage.
