julieg@herald-mail.com The ka-klank of the gate dropping is like a starter's pistol. There is little point in looking back for the competition because the action is in front. Dirt hill after dirt hill, then an asphalt-covered turn whipping into another series of dirt hills. Each dirt hill equals air time - perhaps as high as 4 or 5 feet. "I like that you can actually feel like you're flying," said Ryan Hullinger, 14, owner of a new BMX bike with custom rims.

A section of the LCS Services Landfill that caught fire Sunday morning involved a pile of trash about 8 feet tall that had not been covered with dirt, according to a Hedgesville Volunteer Fire Co. spokesman. Typically at the landfill along Allensville Road, trash is dumped at the facility, then a layer of dirt is spread over the debris, Lt. Bradley Crowell said. Landfill workers repeat the process until a section reaches a certain height, then they move to a different section, Crowell said.

andreabh@herald-mail.com Randy Grove isn't a race car driver, but he may have out-lapped anyone else on the dirt track at Hagerstown Speedway. Grove for 25 years has piloted the grader and water truck around the half-mile red clay track off U.S. 40 west of Hagerstown. He goes round and round the 900-foot-long, 70-foot-wide straight-aways and 90-foot wide turns about twice a week during racing season, packing, wetting, re-packing and smoothing the soil in preparation for the next race.

Commentary I don't want to hear anyone in Washington County complaining about being depressed or nothin' anymore because two new studies indicate that we ought to be the happiest people on the planet. I love health studies because you get such a wealth of certitude from such a minute input of fact. Mark Twain said he never read health reports because he was afraid he "might die of a misprint," but personally I think they're great. There's something about watching people hungrily reading every word in the hopes of adding three extra days to their lives that stirs the soul.

Potatoes were brought to Europe from the Andes by Spanish Catholics, which meant Protestants were opposed to them for religious reasons. As late as the 1700s, what passed for campaign bumper stickers in England in those days read, “No Potatoes, No Pope.” It is fascinating to hear of the British criticizing anyone else's cuisine. But be that as it may, the potato blight, which killed a million Irish, more or less proved their point. But the real culprit was genetic, not papist.

Americans live in a food paradise. Food is generally plentiful, cheap and made to be convenient. And, despite the occasional food-poisoning event, the food supply is consistently safe to eat. Government food-safety regulations limit amounts of pesticides, microbial pathogens and other contaminants on produce and in manufactured products. Inspectors check on food producers, food manufacturers restaurants and others in the food chain. But researchers are examining whether Americans' food-safety vigilance has a downside.
